2018 Volvo XC60 Underwent Crash Test, Showed Surprising Results
Volvo has been known to have high standards when it comes to safety. Because of this, the all-new XC60 just topped the charts at the Euro NCAP.
Crash Test Videos Prove the XC60's Superior Durability
With this, it has also been reported that Volvo had sent out a number of crash test videos that prove that it's one of the safest cars there is. According to Car Scoops, the Volvo XC60 has finally got a full redesign after nine long years without having featured any remarkable changes
The 2018 Volvo XC60 will feature similar physical attributes with those of the other Volvo vehicles, such as the Volvo S90, Volvo XC90 and the Volvo V90. Despite these massive changes and improvements, the 2018 Volvo XC60 will still feature the T8 Twin Engine plug-in hybrid powertrain.
This will be the one responsible in dispensing its strong 400 horsepower that perfectly matches the sweet 472 lb.-ft. of torque. Volvo says that the all-new XC90 will be capable of accelerating from 0 to 100 km/hr in just 5.3 seconds.
In the crash test video, the 2018 Volvo XC60 is shown to hit a wall, head first, while accelerating at 35 mph (56 kph). After the crash, the SUV still remained intact. Then there's another crash test video which featured another XC90 hitting another wall while cruising at 40 mph (64 kph).
