Key Volvo XC60 safety technologies include: AEB systems which operate at a variety of speeds and driving environments, and can detect pedestrians, cyclists and even large animals; a suite of Lane Support Systems to alert the driver when the car is drifting and actively steer to avoid head-on collisions; Blind Spot Indication Systems; Rear Cross Traffic Alerts; and a Run-Off Road system.
Car of the Year 2018 Safety Award
We invited the team from What Car? down to our test track, where we assess the performance of Advanced Driver Assistance Systems on new cars for Euro NCAP, to put the Volvo XC60, Volkswagen T-Roc and Subaru XV through their paces…
Highly Commended - VW T-Roc
The Volkswagen T-Roc is a safety standard-bearer in the ever-growing small SUV segment. It’s AEB systems come as standard and performed exceedingly well in Euro NCAP testing. It also comes with Adaptive Cruise Control – a great comfort feature which helps drivers maintain a safe distance to the car in front – and a Lane Keep Assist system to gently steer a drifting car back into lane, both standard-fit.
Highly Commended - Subaru XV
The Subaru XV has a stereo camera-based AEB system, which is especially good at identifying pedestrians and cyclists, a highly effective Blind Spot Indication System, Reverse Autobrake and a Lane Keep Assist system – all fitted as standard to maximise their potential to reduce accident rates and keep you and your family safe.
