VOLVO 9900 COACH VOTED BEST AND SAFEST AT BUSWORLD, 2019
A front impact system that protects the driver in the event of a collision was just one of the aspects of the 9900 that Volvo Bus Europe says the jury liked.

Up against eight rivals for the awards, the Volvo 9900 was voted the safest and best coach in all categories at the prestigious bus event, with the jury awarding the bus high points for driving characteristics, interior and exterior design, and maintenance simplicity, the manufacturer confirms.

"The Volvo 9900 is one of the most award-winning coaches ever. It previously won the coveted Red Dot Award design prize, the Sustainable Bus Award and Coach of the Year in Spain, but above all the Volvo 9900 is highly regarded by customers, drivers and passengers resulting in good sales figures," said Håkan Agnevall, president of Volvo Buses.

"Receiving another two prestigious awards at Busworld is even more confirmation that we have succeeded in our aim to offer a coach of absolute world class," he added.

SAFETY FIRST

In addition to Grand Award Coach, the Volvo 9900 received an award for best safety – the Safety Label Coach. It received far higher points for its safety level than did the other participating coaches, not least thanks for: the accessibility to the automatic fire-extinguishing system; a front impact system that protects the driver in the event of a collision; and the Zone Management System that provides information about the vehicle and allows the operator to remotely control the speed via a computer, Volvo states.

Door illumination that assists the passengers when boarding and exiting was another feature that the jury noted in its assessment, it adds.
