VOLVO FH16 SAFETY

THE WORLD’S SAFEST VOLVO TRUCK

With the Volvo FH16, we started with a blank page. Then we designed every line and component from scratch for a truck that embodies safety.

We know what’s going on out there. We know what accidents look like. That’s why we do so many extra tests that are not called for by legislation.

WHAT MAKES THE VOLVO FH16 SAFE?(7)

Interior

With night mode, drivers have the option of instantly switching off all unnecessary dashboard backlights with the press of a button. The result is less glare in the driver’s field of vision, and fewer distractions from reflections in the windscreen and side mirrors. It is best suited to long-haul drivers when driving at night, and when reversing and manoeuvring in tough weather conditions or complex environments, such as when connecting or disconnecting trailers.

Safety Hatch

Every Volvo FH16 has a large skylight that doubles as an escape hatch. It also gives a bright, airy cab – helping you stay alert and focused on the road.

Seatbelt

Around half of all fatalities in trucks could be avoided through use of a seatbelt – a fact worth remembering next time you hit the road.

Exterior

FRONT UNDERRUN PROTECTION SYSTEM

Absorbs some of the force in a collision by recoiling backwards under the truck. Now made from lighter and stronger materials, and effective at even higher speeds. 

LIGHTING

We’ve integrated the front position lights and daytime running lights. As a result, the unit provides intelligent illumination from a compact package.

MIRRORS AND VISIBILITY

An array of smart features is designed to give real 360-degree visibility to our drivers. But the FH16’s sizeable windows and mirrors also give brilliant coverage.
