The new Volvo XC40 has achieved the maximum five-star Euro NCAP safety rating in testing for Euro NCAP in July.
With the XC40, assessed by Thatcham Research, Volvo has entered the fast-growing Small SUV segment for the first time, achieving one of the highest Adult Occupant Protection scores (97%) seen in the past three years.
Matthew Avery, Thatcham’s Director of Research, comments: “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. Not only has the Volvo XC40 registered one of the highest Adult Occupant Protection scores of the past three years, but it has done so in Euro NCAP’s toughest tests to date and all in a small package.”
