If you asked people in-the-know as to which car brand spends the most time figuring out the safety standards of their vehicles, Volvo is right up there at the top of the list. Thanks in large part to the Swedish company’s famed Safety Centre, Volvo has been able to take advantage of the benefits of having one of the most advanced safety testing sites in the world.

So it’s fitting that Volvo is commemorating the 10th anniversary of the Safety Centre by releasing a video that goes into detail on the extensive tests done inside the facility. Since being inaugurated by King Carl XVI Gustaf of Sweden back in 2000, Volvo’s Safety Centre has done over 3,000 full-scale tests and has done so by using a number of highly-sophisticated instruments.

We can keep talking about it, but it would be better for all to just watch how Volvo does its safety tests inside their Safety Centre.

He doesn't know when that will be, but until then, he’s committed to expressing his love for KITT, and all cars for that matter, here at TopSpeed.  Read More
