The New Volvo XC60 has impressed again, this time at the Euro NCAP test centre where in recent crash tests the Safety Assist system scored 95%, 40% above the average for cars tested this year, with the Autonomous Emergency Braking (AEB) system scoring maximum points when tested at motorway speeds, as well as successfully avoiding collisions at all test speeds and in all scenarios.
‘The New Volvo XC60 has aced the exacting test protocols,’ said Matthew Avery director of research at Thatcham Research, which is part of the NCAP evaluation. ‘It’s exceedingly rare for a vehicle to score so favourably across the board. The adult occupant protection result for the Volvo XC60 is one of the best on record. But it’s in active safety that Volvo is really maintaining its lead. The XC60’s standard-fit safety technologies are excellent – or rather those that we were able to test, as its Turn Across Path and Run Off Road systems are not yet a feature of the Euro NCAP programme. That’s how high the Volvo XC60 is above the bar set by Euro NCAP.’
