Volvo creates the safest cars for the road and this is evident from the five-star safety ratings their cars have received in tests over the years. Recently, the new Volvo S60 and V60 estate secured 5-star safety rating by Euro NCAP continuing a five-star streak for the Volvo line-up.
This year’s Euro NCAP safety test was designed to make cars safer for both occupants and people on the road. They included cyclist detection with auto-brake and emergency lane keeping systems in the testing procedures, which are hard to ace for most vehicles currently available.
“This result proves that Volvo Cars continues to be an industry leader in safety, constantly pushing the envelope in advancing new technology,” states Malin Ekholm, head of the Volvo Cars Safety Centre. “No matter which Volvo you choose, you can always be sure that you and your loved ones travel in one of the safest cars on the market.”
The Volvo S60 and V60 ride on Scalable Product Architecture (SPA) platform and features active safety package City Safety with Autobrake technology as standard. This tech is different from other Volvos in the sense that this also employs auto braking to diminish oncoming collisions. This is the world’s first on the market aiding in identifying pedestrians, cyclists and big animals.
The V60 was launched at the start of this year while the Volvo S60 was introduced in summer. The S60 is the first Volvo developed on the soil of the U.S.A. The 2018 S60 is available for AED 129,900 in the UAE.
