Volvo is really banging up its cars – and for a good reason.

The Swedish automaker has a rather ambitious goal – make its cars death proof by 2020.

According to CNN Money, Volvo – as well as other automakers – are planning on using a number of new technologies to try to meet their goal, including adaptive cruise control, in which a car maintains a safe distance on its own; automatic lane keep assist, which makes sure a car stays in its lane; collision avoidance, which wants drivers of obstacles that could cause a crash; and pedestrian and large animal protection.


Additionally, Volvo is putting its cars through some strenuous crash testing, like the side rollover test  …

… and the full frontal crash test

It’s a lofty goal, but one we should all hope for.
