Top Safety Pick

safety features galore, including Volvo’s new City Safety system
Car and Driver

"It's the car that stops itself!" Volvo says. They're not kidding — thanks to its new City Safety system, that's precisely what the XC60 will do if it senses an imminent low-speed collision.

Volvo says the XC60 is the safest car the company has ever produced.
Popular Mechanics

The 2013 Volvo XC60 retains its perfect score, for a number of reasons that range from top-notch safety scores to a generous helping of active-safety systems.

The XC60 has not only earned five stars overall from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) but also all 'good' scores from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS). The XC60 is also a Top Safety Pick+, and has earned the best 'good' rating in the new IIHS small overlap frontal crash test.

Volvo's City Safety system in the XC60 serves to help stop the vehicle or reduce crash severity in approaching other vehicles. And with the optional pedestrian detection with full auto-brake feature (part of the Technology Package), it can identify an object or person in the road ahead, also bringing the vehicle to a complete stop or reducing the severity of the impact.

Those features are just one of a large roster of active safety systems offered in the XC60. Adaptive Cruise Control, Lane Departure Warning, Driver Alert Control, Distance Alert, and the Blind Spot Information System (BLIS) all are likely to reduce the chances of an accident and are supplemental to now-typical safeguards like electronic stability control, anti-lock brakes, side and side-curtain airbags.

How does the
TCC Rating work?
The TCC Rating is a clear numeric rating value based on a 10-point scale that reflects the overall opinion of our automotive experts on any vehicle and rolls up ratings we give each vehicle across sub-categories you care about like performance, safety, styling and more.

Our rating also has simple color-coded “Stop” (red), “Caution” (orange),
or “Go” (green) messages along with the numerical score so you can easily understand where we stand at a glance.

Our automotive experts then also collect and show you what other websites say about these different aspects of any vehicle. We do this leg work for you to simplify your research process.
