The new Volvo XC40 added another accolade to its growing list of achievements as it received five stars and top rating in its 2018 Euro NCAP assessment. The XC40 now joins its larger siblings in the 60 and 90 series as one of the safest cars on the roads.

The new XC40 received the highest safety score among all cars tested under the new 2018 Euro NCAP tests which are considered the most challenging ever.

Faisal Sharif, Managing Director of DOMASCO, said:

Since its introduction in the market, the XC40 has helped redefine the small SUV segment and has had positive reviews from customers. This year’s assessment was the toughest ever with new and more demanding challenges on safety technology, including cyclist-detection with auto-brake and emergency lane keeping systems and we are extremely pleased that the XC40 now joins its larger siblings as one of the safest cars on the road.’

The XC40 comes 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.

All tested Volvo cars on sale today 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.

In March, the XC40 was named 2018 European Car of the Year, the first Volvo to win the prestigious award, and it has since been one of Volvo’s top sellers.
