The United States (US) arm of Volvo Cars announced that the seats fitted on the brand’s vehicles received an endorsement from the American Chiropractic Association (ACA).


  • When did ACA grant its endorsement to Volvo Cars USA?

    Volvo Cars received its ACA approval in May 2022.
  • What cars from Volvo Cars have ACA-approved seats?

    Volvo Cars' entire vehicle lineup was awarded the ACA endorsement.
  • An ACA endorsement is given to products of the highest quality after a series of reviews, analysis, testing, and evaluation by a review board of Doctors of Chiropractic, with final approval from ACA’s Board of Governors.

    Because of their ergonomic design, Volvo Cars’ seats received approval from the largest professional chiropractic organization in the US. The endorsement was granted for the brand’s entire vehicle lineup in May 2022 and extends through May 2023.

    “Seats designed by Volvo Cars ensure drivers and passengers never have to sacrifice comfort, design, or safety when on the road. We’re thrilled to be recognized by the American Chiropractic Association with an endorsement that reaffirms our industry-leading approach,” Volvo Cars USA Head of Product and Technology Consumer Offer Jim Nichols was quoted as saying.

    The seats on Volvo Cars’ offerings are based on pioneering collaboration with orthopedic surgeons to offer industry-leading comfort and support.

    Volvo Cars believe that sitting comfortably helps minimize driver fatigue and maximize the industry-leading safety features found in and around the seats of Volvo vehicles. Integrated into every seat are Volvo safety innovations including the Whiplash Protection System (WHIPS), Side Impact Protection System (SIPS), and Run Off-Road Mitigation which can help reduce the risk of injury in the event of a crash.

    Even the Swedish carmaker’s distinct head restraints are specially designed to provide increased whiplash protection.

    While safety is always a priority, these seats are also designed for luxury and comfort, making driving in a Volvo feel like a true Scandinavian sanctuary. Drivers and passengers can take advantage of ventilated climate control to cool down on a hot day or even a massage function.

    Volvo Cars also announced that its fully electric vehicles will be completely leather-free, instead using high-quality and sustainable alternatives. In addition to the currently available tailored wool blend, future Volvo Cars seats will use Nordico: a new material consisting of textiles from recycled PET (polyethylene terephthalate) bottles, bio-attributed material from sustainable forests in Sweden and Finland, and corks recycled from the wine industry.

    To date, Volvo Cars is the only automotive brand to have received this accolade.
