The Volvo S90 scored 32.29 points out of 42 points. The S90 has an 'active' bonnet. Sensors in the bumper detect when a pedestrian has been hit and actuators raise the bonnet to provide greater clearance to rigid structures in the engine bay. The vehicle was tested with the bonnet in the raised (deployed) position. Protection against head injury was almost entirely good. The protection provided by the bumper to pedestrians' legs was good for all test locations and maximum points were scored. However, protection of the pelvis was poor at nearly all test locations. (Euro NCAP v8.3)
