Volvo tops ENCAP
Volvo’s XC60 has been crowned the car with the best overall performance of 2017 in the prestigious Euro NCAP 2017 Best in Class safety awards. The XC60 scored a nearperfect 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. “The new XC60 is one of the safest Volvo cars ever made,” said Malin Ekholm, Vice President, Volvo Cars Safety Centre. “It is fully loaded with new technology designed to assist drivers, to help protect vehicle occupants and other road users, such as pedestrians and cyclists, plus mitigate collision risks. We are proud that our ongoing commitment to innovating new safety features has been recognised with another Euro NCAP Best in Class award for Volvo Cars.” The XC60 also joins the S90 and V90 in making history for Volvo Cars 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.
