Important: Frontal crash test ratings can be compared only among vehicles of similar weight.
Test details:

The Volvo S80 was introduced in the 1999 model year and modified beginning with 2000 models to include structural changes to improve occupant protection in frontal crashes. Beginning with 2001 models, the frontal airbags also were improved to include dual-stage inflators that permit low energy deployments in low severity crashes, sensors that reduce the likelihood of deployment in minor fender-benders, and vent holes positioned better to direct hot gasses away from a driver's hands.

The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety has evaluated the crashworthiness of the Volvo S80, based primarily on performance of a 2000 model in a 40 mph frontal offset crash test into a deformable barrier. The performance of 2001 and later models is rated separately from 2000s because the airbag modifications are expected to reduce or eliminate problems in restraint system performance observed in the 2000 model. Otherwise, performance of 2000 and later models should be very similar.

Restraints/dummy kinematics — Dummy movement was well controlled. After the dummy moved forward into the airbag, it rebounded into the seat and then its head hit the B-pillar.

Injury measures — Measures taken from the head, neck, chest, and both legs indicate low risk of injury to these body regions. Head acceleration from the B-pillar hit was low.
