Volvo Wins Multiple Car Tech Awards

Carprices Team / Posted On - August 23rd 2022

Volvo cars are considered to be the safest cars in the world. Volvo makes this belief happen with years of hard work in developing new technologies in car safety and improving the existing ones. This is one of the reasons why Volvo is recognised all over the world. Consequently, it has won multiple Car Tech Awards.
The Car Tech Awards celebrate the best in-car technology launched over the past 12 months, as voted for by the experts from buyer's guide Carbuyer and technology website Alphr. This time Volvo has been named as the Car Technology Brand of the Year for the second year running, and has been awarded Best Safety Technology for its revolutionary Steering Support system, Best Sat-Nav for its Sensus Navigation, and Best Safest Car because of its remarkable Euro NCAP crash test result.
Commenting on the awards, Stuart Milne, Editor of Carbuyer, said, “Volvo's success in the Car Tech Awards is remarkable. The company scooped Car Technology Brand of the Year for the second year in succession. Our judges were impressed by the way Volvo refuses to rest on its laurels, developing a series of products and philosophies that build on its Vision 2020, that no one will be killed or seriously injured in a new Volvo by 2020.”
He further added, “These include its commitment to stop producing cars powered solely by petrol and diesel starting from 2019 - a scheme recognized by the United Nations - as well as the launch of an evasive steering system in its new XC60 and forging a close relationship with Google to develop better- connected cars. This is in addition to the continual and incremental improvement in new car technology that all customers can enjoy.”
Volvo has offered various safety features in the XC60. This helped the car to score an outstanding result in its Euro NCAP crash test. It scored 98 percent for adult occupant protection and 95 percent for its safety assistance features.
The XC60 also has Volvo's amazing Steering Support technology as standard. This automatically provides steering assistance in an emergency to help avoid potential collisions. This really impressed the judges at the Car Tech Awards. One of the judges said, “It should come as little surprise that a brand so closely associated with safety should take our Best Safety Technology award. The new Steering Support system is a development of the firm's City Safety system. In situations where braking alone won't avoid a collision, the XC60 can take charge of steering. With the system, Volvo claims a 45 percent reduction in rear-end frontal crashes.”
Praising the Sensus Navigation system of the XC60, judges said, “Its display is a model of clarity and uses the same stunning, efficient design the brand is fast becoming synonymous with. It's not style over substance, though. The large screen makes destinations easy to input, and efficient and accurate routes are displayed. The whole system is responsive, simple to use and sets a new benchmark.”
Jon Wakefield, Managing Director of Volvo Car UK, said, “Winning such a wide range of Car Tech Awards highlights the breadth and quality of industry-leading technology in our cars. These innovative features are designed to make our customers' lives easier, safer and more enjoyable, and these awards prove that they do just that.”
