We’re very pleased to see the impressive and stylish Volvo XC40 has gained the top rating in its recent NCAP test. This therefore means the XC40 joins its larger counterparts in the XC60 and XC90 as being one of the safest cars available.
The 2018 testing has become tougher than ever before with new, demanding challenges placed on safety technologies within the car, which includes testing the cyclist detection with auto-brake and emergency lane-keeping systems.
To support its claims as the safest car currently on sale, this model
has so far received the highest safety score out of all cars tested on
the new regime and achieved one of the highest Adult Occupant Protection
scores of 97% seen in the past three years.
“This is yet another benchmark car from Volvo. The XC40 is built on Volvo’s new small vehicle platform, but there are no signs of compromise on safety, despite the challenges this segment presents to delivering optimal crash protection,” said Thatcham’s Director of Research, Matthew Avery.
Malin Ekholm, Head of the Volvo Cars Safety Centre, also stated: “The new XC40 is one of the safest cars on the market. It comes as standard with the largest offering of safety technology of any small SUVs, helping drivers detect and avoid collisions, remain safely in their lane and reduce the impact of accidentally running off the road.”
This safety rating simply adds to the XC40’s appeal, showcasing how it is truly the perfect urban SUV. Its raised ride height and subtly muscular frame give this car an assertive presence that will help you turn heads for all the right reasons.
Inside you can discover a nine-inch infotainment display as standard – its portrait orientation makes it easier than ever before to access the information you need while on the move. In addition, you can also utilise the 12.3-inch digital screen that sits comfortably behind the steering wheel.
