Police in Sweden have chosen the Volvo V90 luxury wagon as their new patrol car following a series of five specific tests: braking, handling, obstacle avoidance with and without braking, and high-speed driving in emergency situations.
The V90 earned a combined score of 9.2 out of 10, the highest ever in these demanding police tests.
The final report reads: “Overall, it’s hard to find the slightest flaw in this car. The chassis, steering, suspension, traction control, and powertrain all deliver exemplary performance. Sudden lane changes at high speeds are almost too easy: The car obeys every command and handles lateral forces like it’s no big deal.”
The Volvo V90 wagons for Swedish police will began duty in early 2017.
