Volvo’s popular Safety Sunday contest is back for Super Bowl 56. In fact, the automaker is doubling down for 2022: if a safety is scored during the Big Game, Volvo will give away $2 million worth of cars to randomly selected participants.
In 2020, Volvo put $1 million worth of cars on the line to celebrate more than one million lives saved by their invention of the three-point safety belt. This year, Volvo looks to save “a million more” with safety innovations designed to address three primary challenges in motor vehicle safety: speed, intoxication, and distraction.
For a chance to win your dream car, head to VolvoSafetySunday.com between January 25 and February 13, 2022, and enter this free Super Bowl contest.
You’ll be asked to “build a Volvo” – in other words, to design what could become your own unique Volvo. Using the online vehicle configurator, you’ll be able to customize your build in any trim and color available in the United States. If that sounds too artsy for you, take a short quiz and Volvo will recommend a model based on your lifestyle.
Once your car is configured, simply click “Try to win this Volvo” on the summary page to enter the contest. After that, sit back, relax, and hope for a safety on game day!
