2018 Volvo XC60 gets five-star ANCAP

2018 Volvo XC60 gets five-star ANCAPIt scored an impressive 98 per cent, or 37.25 out of 38, for adult occupant protection, including perfect scores in the side-impact and pole categories.

In fact, at 95 per cent, the XC60’s Safety Assist Score was 40 per cent better than the average of cars tested, and Thatcham couldn’t even test Volvo’s Turn Across Path and Run Off Roads Systems as they’re not included in NCAP testing yet. That’s how far ahead Volvo are with the XC60.

The new XC60 duly becomes the best car yet tested by Euro NCAP in 2017, although it wasn’t the only five-star SUV to be crash-tested. The Citroen C3 Aircross, Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross, Seat Arona, Skoda Karoq, Vauxhall Crossland X and Volkswagen T-Roc also earned a full brace of stars, as did the Volkswagen Polo – the only non-SUV model to be tested.

“Next year will see new tests and even tougher requirements for five stars. But it is the high-selling mass-market vehicles that will really influence road safety in the future and manufacturers are to be congratulated for democratising safety by making high-tech safety assistance available on their superminis.”
