Five stars to the XC40 in Euro NCAP

Volvo XC40 receives five star rating in Euro NCAP assessment
The Volvo XC40 has been awarded top marks in the Euro NCAP safety rating 2018. The new small SUV received five stars in the safety test, confirming Volvo’s reputation as a leader in safety. The new XC40 received the highest safety score among all cars tested in the 2018 Euro NCAP, the toughest version of the test yet. The new, more demanding challenges include cyclist-detection with auto-brake and emergency lane keeping systems.

"The new XC40 is one of the safest cars on the market," said Malin Ekholm, who runs the Volvo Cars Safety Centre. "It comes standard with the largest set of safety technology of any small SUV."
The XC40-result confirms that Volvo remains on top when it comes to safety. All tested Volvo cars on sale have received five stars in their respective Euro NCAP assessments.

Last year, the XC60 was crowned the overall best-performing large off-roader and the best overall performer in the prestigious Euro NCAP 2017 Best in Class safety awards. The XC90 received the same accolade in 2015.

The XC40 was the first Volvo ever to win the European Car of the Year title, and the customer demand is so high that production has been increased both in Europe and China.
