4 Volvo Models Earn 2015 IIHS Top Safety Pick+
Volvo Cars has once again performed very well in the annual IIHS Top Safety Pick+ Awards. In this year's honors list, four Volvo cars made the Top Safety Pick+ grade: the S60, V60, S80 and XC60. Volvo Cars was the only European brand with more than two models on the list.
The Tops Safety Pick+ award criteria have grown tougher in the last twelve months, with increased demands around the standard for front crash prevention. To meet the new criteria cars making the Top Safety Pick+ grade must offer the ability to stop or slow down without driver intervention before hitting a target in IIHS tests at 12 mph (19.3kph), 25 mph (40.2kph) or both.
Volvo Car’s front crash avoidance technology, City Safety, which is standard in all new Volvos, effectively helps to detect and brake automatically to mitigate or prevent a car to car rear end collision without driver intervention. Volvo’s City Safety technology has been shown to reduce insurance claim frequency by 16 percent.
Owning these top-rated Volvos are now made easier. Volvo Philippines are offering an array of programs aimed to make your Volvo ownership dreams come through. One of which is the Smart Lease Program where for 36 months, you can drive around in a Volvo while within the manufacturer warranty and maintenance plans and without the burden of negotiating trade-in values. After the lease term is over, you will have the option to return the unit, buy the unit or replace the unit with a brand new Volvo.
Cruising around in style (not to mention award-winning safety) is made even more exciting with the availability of the S60 and XC60 R-Design models. A more pumped up and revved version of the standard sports sedan and compact SUV, these R-Design variants gives you an extra oomph at your fingertips with its robust engines complemented with sleek looks while ensconced in one of the world’s most comfortable cabins.
