Pedestrian Summary

Adult & child head impacts: 18.59 points
Upper leg impacts: 1.36 points
Lower leg impacts: 5.98 points

This vehicle scored 25.93 out of 36 points (Acceptable). The bumper scored maximum points for its protection of pedestrians' legs, providing good protection in all areas tested. However, the protection offered to the pelvic region was predominantly poor. The bonnet offered good or adequate protection to the head of a struck pedestrian over almost all of its surface. The XC90's standard-fit autonomous emergency braking system recognises pedestrians and cyclists as well as other cars but it not part of the pedestrian protection scoring in 2015.
