Global Safety Rating Results Confirm Volvo Cars' Safety Leadership

LONDON, April 10, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --

Every year is a safety year at Volvo Cars. The company is working towards the vision that by 2020, nobody should be killed or seriously injured in a new Volvo - and data from independent rating institutes all over the world emphasise and reinforce this life-saving philosophy. The most recent results are a Top Safety Pick+ for both the Volvo S60 and XC60 in the United States and an outstanding Best in Class ranking for the all-new Volvo V40 in the Euro NCAP summary for 2012.

"Viewed together, all the top ratings during the past year emphasise our world-leading position in automotive safety. We are very proud to offer consumers some of the world's safest cars," says Prof. Lotta Jakobsson, Senior Technical Specialist Safety at Volvo Cars Safety Centre.

At the recent 2013 Geneva Motor Show, Volvo Cars presented a new world first in safety. Pedestrian and Cyclist Detection is an enhancement of the present detection and auto brake technology. The added functionality detects and automatically brakes for cyclists swerving out in front of the car.

"Several studies have documented that our collision-avoiding systems lead to significant accident reductions in real-life traffic. By continuously introducing new preventive and protective systems, we keep moving towards our aim that by 2020 no one should be injured or killed in a new Volvo," says Lotta Jakobsson.

Here are the most prominent rating results for Volvo cars during the past 12-month period:

Record result for Volvo V40 in Euro NCAP

The all-new Volvo V40 achieved a five-star Euro NCAP rating and also won the Euro NCAP's Best in Class Cars of 2012 in the tough Small Family class - with the best overall result ever recorded by the institute. The V40 also scored an all-time high in the pedestrian evaluation by attaining 88 per cent of the total score, which is significantly higher than the previous highest score.
