IIHS Awards 2018 Volvo XC60 Top Safety Pick+

It’s no surprise that Volvo just added another model to its already long lineup of safe vehicles: the newly redesigned 2018 XC60.

The Top Safety Pick+ is the highest honor given by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety and it’s issued when the vehicle tested scores the highest rating (which is classified as “Good”) in all five crash test evaluations, including small overlap front, moderate overlap front, side, roof strength, and head restraints and seats, as well as an “Advanced” or “Superior” rating for front crash prevention and an “Acceptable” or “Good” rating for the headlights evaluation.


In addition to scoring the five “Good” crash test ratings, the 2018 XC60 received the highest rating of “Superior” for front crash prevention by successfully warning the driver of a potential accident and avoiding both a 12 mph and 25 mph frontal collision due to its standard ‘City Safety’ crash avoidance system. The “Superior” rating for the City Safety feature increased from the outgoing model’s “Advanced” rating. Last year’s model received a “Superior” rating with the optional Full Auto Brake and Pedestrian Detection feature that has since been replaced by the City Safety system. The headlights were given the second highest rating of “Acceptable” when used with the optional full LED headlights found in the “Advanced” package.


Additional safety features in the 2018 XC60 include Active Bending Lights with automatic high beams, Adaptive Cruise Control with Pilot Assist, Blind Spot Information System with Steer Assist and Cross Traffic Alert, Driver Alert Control, Lane Keeping Aid, Oncoming Lane Mitigation, Road Sign Information, Rear Collision Warning, and automatic braking after collision.


You can see why the 2018 Volvo XC60 is worthy of the the IIHS Top Safety Pick+ award and why it’s one of the safest vehicles on the road. Come see us to test drive this vehicle today! We’d love to answer your questions about what makes the XC60 a great vehicle for your family. Swing by Volvo of San Antonio!
