    New Volvo S60 receives five-star Euro NCAP rating

    Volvo’s track record at the Euro NCAP’s crash tests has been very good and the new S60 sedan and V60 estate are no exception. Both models have been given a five-star rating by the crash test agency and join the rest of the Volvo range which also boast a five-star result.

    The S60 and the V60 are built on Volvo’s Scalable Product Architecture (SPA), which is the same platform used by the larger XC60, as well as the XC90. These cars are equipped with a host of safety features such as whiplash prevention, pedestrian warning, ABS, EBD, stability control, collision mitigation, and so on.

    While the V60 estate is not expected to make its way to the Indian market, the new S60 sedan should arrive sometime next year. When it launches in India, the S60 will have petrol and hybrid powertrain options, eschewing diesel engines altogether, and rival the likes of the Audi A4, Mercedes-Benz C-class and BMW 3-series.
