Test of Volvo V60
Euro NCAP performs a series of crash tests on each model tested:
A frontal impact test, the car impacts a rigid barrier
An offset frontal impact test, 40% of the width of the car is striking a deformable barrier
A pole test, the tested car is propelled sideways into a rigid pole
Aside impact test, a mobile deformable barrier impacts the driver’s door
A series of pedestrian tests are conducted with different impactors, adult and child head form, lower and upper leg form and whiplash tests are performed on a sled.
Active safety is tested based on the car’s equipment: autonomous emergency braking systems (car to car, with a pedestrian and a cyclist target), lane support and speed assist technologies and seatbelt reminders.
The Volvo S60 is a saloon version of the V60 estate. Euro NCAP has verified that the results of the S60 are as good or better than those of the V60. Accordingly, the rating presented here is based on the assessment of the Volvo V60.
