The SUV receives a five-star rating for safety from the NHTSA, while the IIHS awards it an overall rating of Good and earns the organization's Top Safety Pick award - we'd expect nothing less from the Swedish safety experts.
All Volvo vehicles are eminently safe, and the XC90 is no exception, courtesy of the IntelliSafe systems on board. Standard features include ABS, stability and traction control, a rearview camera, forward collision warning, automatic emergency braking, lane-keeping assist, lane departure warning, parking sensors, blind-spot monitoring, rear cross-traffic alert, and seven airbags: dual front, driver knee, front side, and side curtain. Near-autonomous driving is also offered with Volvo's Pilot Assist suite, which is fitted from the base model.

The SUV receives a subpar reliability rating of 76 out of 100 from J.D. Power and has received a few complaints over the years. The 2019 model was only subjected to a single recall; in the event of a crash, the post-collision SOS system might not emit a GPS location. The 2018 model was also recalled for faulty seatbelts. Volvo offers a 50,000-mile/48-month limited and powertrain warranty, while maintenance is covered for 36,000 miles/36 months.
