The Volvo XC40 has achieved a five star Euro NCAP safety rating.

The current European Car of the Year joins the rest of the Volvo range in achieving top marks when tested by Euro NCAP.

The 2018 testing program has been tightened to include the latest in safety technology, including cyclist-detection with auto-brake and emergency lane-keeping systems, with the new XC40 achieving the highest safety score among all cars tested under the new regime.

“The new XC40 is one of the safest cars on the market,” said Malin Ekholm, Head of the Volvo Cars Safety Centre. “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.”
