Comments

Adult occupant
The passenger compartment remained stable in the impact and the windscreen pillar was displaced rearward only 3mm after the test. The steering column is designed to collapse horizontally away from the driver and this created additional space for protection. Degressive adaptive load-limiters tailor the restraint of the occupants according to the position of the seat and the severity of the accident. Dummy readings indicated good protection of the knees and femurs and Volvo were able to demonstrate that similar levels of protection would be provided to occupants of different sizes and to those sat in different positions.
The XC60 scored maximum points for the protection provided in the car side impact test. In the pole side impact, protection of the chest was marginal. Good protection was provided against whiplash injuries.

Child occupant
Both dummies were seated in rearward-facing child restraints. Based on dummy readings in the dynamic tests, the XC60 scored maximum points for its protection of the 3 year child and lost only a fraction of a point for the 1½ year infant. The passenger airbag can be disabled to allow a rearward facing child seat to be used in that position. However, information provided to the driver regarding the status of the airbag is not sufficiently clear. The label warning of the dangers of using a rearward facing seat in that position without first disabling the airbag was not clear and were not permanently attached. The presence of ISOFIX anchorages in the rear outboard seats was not clearly marked.

Pedestrian
The bumper scored maximum points for the protection offered to pedestrians' legs. However, additional tests showed that some areas beyond the central zone provided poor protection. In the area likely to be hit by a child's head, protection provided by the bonnet provided was predominantly fair. However, protection was mostly poor for an adult's head and the front edge of the bonnet scored no points.

Safety assist
Electronic Stability Control is standard equipment on all of the model range.
The XC60 has a seatbelt reminder system for the front and rear seats.
