Pretty impressive front-overlap test video of the S90...

Ha.

I spent a lot of time yesterday watching more overlap crash videos. While it doesn't look wonderful (what crash does?) it does about what the old XC90 did and just glide off of it like a glancing blow and move to the side a bit.

Unlike every other vehicle that looked like it just impacted/cratered the corner and bounced off at a 90 degree angle...violently.

The G force must be much higher when bounced back.

Small overlap crash tests really give you an idea of the rigidity of the car.
