By BRUCE NEWTON
THE list of standard safety features is incredibly long and includes many an acronym ABS (anti-lock braking), WHIPS (anti-whiplash seats), SIPS (side impact protection), IC (inflatable curtain) and TRACS (traction control). There are dual-stage front and side airbags for the front seat passengers while IC provides head protection for all four outboard passengers. All seats are anti-submarining, all passengers have lap-sash seatbelts with tensioners and force limiters, while front seat passengers get seatbelt height adjustment. Head restraints are standard all round.
Did you know?Each new Volvo that is introduced - including the Cross Country - is accompanied by a declaration that describes the environmental impact of the car in detail during manufacture, driving and at end-of-life. The environmental declaration is inspected and verified by Lloyd's Register in London
