The new Volvo S60 and V60 have just received the maximum five-star rating in their 2018 EuroNCAP safety tests. This continues a series of 5-star streaks for the Volvo line-up, making all tested Volvo models currently on sale offering fire-star-rated safety technology. This is an impressive accomplishment for Volvo, considering the 2018 Euro NCAP was the toughest ever.
The new regime includes cyclist detection with auto-brake and emergency lane keeping systems, proving that the V60 and S60 are among the safest cars currently on the road. Volvo active safety package City Safety with Autobrake technology comes as standard on all Volvos. As a world first on the S60 and V60, City Safety now also engages auto braking to mitigate oncoming collisions, and is the only safety system on the market to help recognise pedestrians, cyclists and large animals.
Malin Ekholm, head of the Volvo Cars Safety Centre, states that the result proves that Volvo Cars continues to be an industry leader in safety, saying “Volvo Cars are constantly pushing the envelope in advancing new technology”.
