Volvo XC60 is Europe's Safest Car for 2017


The Volvo XC60 has been crowned the best-performing large off-roader, and the car with the best overall performance of 2017 in the Euro NCAP 2017 Best in Class safety awards.

The XC60 scored a near-perfect 98 percent in the Adult Occupant category and in its Large Off-Road class, showed a clear advantage in Safety Assist with a score of 95 percent–20 percentage points higher than the nearest Large Off-Road competitor–underlining Volvo Cars’ position as a leader in automotive safety.

The Euro NCAP award for the XC60 follows in the tracks of the XC90, which in 2015 was also named the best performing large off-roader, and the car with the best overall performance that year. Volvo Cars’ V40 is another previous Euro NCAP winner, in the Small Family class.

The XC60 also joins the S90 and V90 in making history for Volvo as the first manufacturer to hold all top three car rankings in Euro NCAP’s Autonomous Emergency Braking (AEB) tests: AEB City, AEB Inter-Urban, and AEB Pedestrian. The three Volvo cars are the only cars to have achieved perfect scores in all three AEB categories.

The S90 and V90 also scored highly at the Euro NCAP 2017 Best in Class awards, achieving 95 percent in the Adult Occupant category and 93 percent in the Safety Assist category.

The Euro NCAP award follows the XC60 being named Japan’s 2017-18 Car of the Year.
