Rear: 0.50 points

Front: 1.37 points

Whiplash Protection Crash Test Image

Child Protection Test

In the frontal offset and side impact tests, protection was GOOD for all critical body areas for the 6 year and 10 year child dummies. Maximum points were scored.

The Volvo V60 is fitted with lower ISOFix anchorages for rear outboard seats, and top tether anchorages for all rear seating positions.

Installation of typical child restraints available in Australia and New Zealand showed all child restraints could be accommodated in the rear outboard seating positions, however several could not be correctly installed in the centre rear seating position.

Pedestrian Summary

The Volvo V60 has an ‘active’ bonnet. Sensors detect when a pedestrian is struck and actuators lift the bonnet to provide greater clearance from stiff components in the engine bay. The vehicle was tested with the bonnet in the raised position and predominantly GOOD results were recorded over most of the bonnet area with POOR results recorded at the base of the windscreen and on the 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.

The autonomous emergency braking (AEB) system is capable of detecting and reacting to vulnerable road users including pedestrians and cyclists. The AEB system offered GOOD performance in tests of its effectiveness in pedestrian test scenarios, with GOOD performance recorded in most daylight scenarios and some ADEQUATE performance in night-time scenarios. In cyclist test scenarios, the AEB system offered
ADEQUATE performance. The system’s overall performance was classified as ADEQUATE.
