THE WORLD’S SAFEST VOLVO TRUCK
With the FH range, 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.

We love to test
Swedish cab strength test. Barrier test. Roll-over test. Sled-test. Head impact test. Our extensive testing programme proves the Volvo FH is the safest Volvo in the world. And suggests you have a good chance of surviving if you roll over. Or hit a stationary object at 80 km/h.
Unique to Volvo, testing is carried out with all interior fittings in place and with full storage compartments.
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.
Every Volvo FH 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.
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.
