In the frontal offset and side impact tests, protection of the 10 year and 6 year dummies was GOOD and the Volvo XC40 scored maximum points in these tests. The Volvo XC40 is fitted with lower ISOFix anchorages on the rear outboard seats and top tether anchorages on all rear seats.

Pedestrian Summary

The bonnet of the Volvo XC40 provided GOOD or ADEQUATE protection to the head of a struck pedestrian over most of its surface, with POOR results recorded only on the stiff windscreen pillars. The bumper scored maximum points for its protection of pedestrians’ legs, with GOOD results at all test locations. Protection of the pelvis was mixed, with areas of GOOD and POOR performance.
