The 2015 Volvo S60 is undoubtedly one of the safest cars on the road, with uniformly top-rated safety scores and a long roster of electronic safety systems to complement the durable structure.

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) gives the 2015 S60 its top five-star rating in every single category, and so has the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS), which rates last year's S60 a Top Safety Pick+. Not only did the S60 get the IIHS's highest rating of "Good" on all tests, the list includes the new and challenging Small-Overlap Front Crash test, which the S60 also aced--unlike many new cars whose scores fell when the new test was performed.

Beyond the crash tests, the S60 carries Volvo's strong safety reputation forward with modern active and passive electronic safety systems too, though some of them remain optional. There are, of course, standard front, side, and side-curtain airbags; anti-lock brakes; and stability and traction control. But Volvo adds Corner Traction Control, which directs torque across the car to enhance grip in aggressive maneuvers, and it recently introduced a new Road Sign Information system that shows the speed limit and other information on the instrument panel.

Several optional systems--including radar-based pedestrian and cyclist alert system with automatic braking, Driver Alert Control, Adaptive Cruise Control, and Lane Departure Warning, plus the road-sign system and active high-beam control--are included as part of the Technology Package. Other safety add-ons include front and rear camera systems, parking sensors, and active HID headlamps. A Blind Spot Information System is also available separately, as a standalone option.

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.
