Euro NCAP presents Best in Class Cars of 2017 image

The posh SUV was crowned the safest of them all, with nearly flawless scores in two main categories - 98% in the Adult Occupant area and 95% when discussing Safety Assist.

Volvo is not a new name when it comes to safety.

The near-perfect score (98 percent) in the adult occupant category speaks volumes about how much thought Volvo gave to making the second-generation crossover as safe as possible. These include seatbelt reminders for the front and rear seats, a speed assistance system which can recognize a road's speed limit should the driver set it and lane departure warning with lane keep assist that alerts the driver should the auto be drifting off its lane. By also claiming the overall crown, the XC60 follows in the footsteps of the XC90, which won both the Large Off-Road category as well as best-performing vehicle overall at the 2015 awards.
