This film clip goes to Volvo’s advanced test facility. As safety is the most important element of the Volvo brand, they have invested heavily in what may be the best crash test centre in the world.

They can reconstruct almost any collision that may occur in the real world, even re-creating crashes between two cars travelling at different angles and different speeds. Each test involves hundreds of sensors measuring and recording data. This part of a continual cycle of testing for research, development and standards verification.
