2014 Volvo XC60 Safety

9.0
On Safety

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.

Only a four-star rollover score keeps the Volvo XC60 from safety perfection.

The XC60 has earned five stars overall from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), and it earns a Top Safety Pick+ rating again for the 2014 model year. Were it not for the four-star score in the rollover resistance test, it would be a perfect performer.
