In the latest crash test, Volvo's smallest and largest cars collided with each other.

At Volvo's Safety Centre, crash tests are continuously carried out to improve vehicle safety. At the facility in Torslanda, Sweden, a compact recreational vehicle and a large SUV were recently launched.

The smallest Volvos are 4.23 metres-long, the EX30 we thoroughly tested recently, which weighs 1.8 tonnes, and the Volvo EX90, which is 5.03 metres-long and also available in a 7-seater version, can weigh up to 2.8 tonnes. .

An EX30 that was rolling at 20 km/h was hit sideways by an EX90 at 50 km/h.

Given that two premium, modern cars were pitted against each other, it's no surprise that both cars performed well in the test. The situation would presumably be very different if an older, cheaper minivan collided with a heavy-duty SUV the size of a mountain.

Recently, EuroNCAP has drawn attention to the risks posed by increasingly heavy new cars.
