Arlington, Virginia – The redesigned 2007 Volvo S80 luxury car has received a “Good” rating in a 40-mph frontal offset crash test conducted by the U.S. Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS).

“Measures taken from the dummy indicate a low risk of any significant injuries in a crash of this severity,” said the IIHS web site.

In the Institute’s 40 mph offset test, 40 percent of the total width of the vehicle strikes a barrier on the driver side. More info can be found at the IIHS website.
