As a relatively low-volume luxury vehicle, the V90 hasn't been subjected to proper crash testing by the NHTSA or IIHS. However, it is possible to hypothesize its ratings by looking at how the S90, on which the V90 is based, is rated. The S90 received high scores from the IIHS overall.
NHTSA safety ratings are not available at this time.
While it may be lacking an official safety rating, the Volvo V90 certainly isn't lacking when it comes to safety features. A rearview camera, ABS, stability control, and six airbags come standard, including dual front, front side, and side curtain airbags. Each model also comes standard with blind-spot monitoring, rear cross-traffic alert, lane keep assist, lane departure warning, driver attention assist, forward collision avoidance, and rear collision detection. Full LED headlights and fog lights come standard, while a surround-view camera and automated parking functions are available.

While there may not be an official dependability rating for the V90 from J.D.Power, there have been very few complaints lodged against the wagon with the NHTSA. However, a couple of recalls over the last few years do blemish its otherwise pristine record. Reasons for these recalls included the automatic emergency braking not engaging and a problem with the telematics that prevented it from reporting its GPS location after a crash. The Volvo also doesn't get the most inspiring warranty package, with both the limited and powertrain warranties being valid for 50,000 miles/48 months. However, 36,000 miles/36 months of complimentary maintenance are offered.
