Volvo V40 - Safety
The Volvo V40 recently received an overall record-breaking 5-star Euro NCAP rating. As of 2009, the European safety institute Euro NCAP presents an overall rating for each model it tests. Separate tests are carried out in four different sub-categories which are ranked to produce an overall grade. The four categories include adult occupant protection, child protection, pedestrian protection and safety assist.
Apart from scoring the best overall result, the Volvo V40 also scored 98% for adult protection, the best result ever recorded in the test. Maximum points were also achieved in the safety assist and pedestrian protection categories.
"The new Volvo V40 was launched as the most intelligent and the safest car in its segment, and it is truly packed with active safety systems such as auto brake, Pedestrian Detection to shield pedestrians, Lane Keeping Aid which helps the driver stay within his or her lane, and BLIS which helps the driver detect vehicles in the offset rear Ďblind spot'," says Thomas Broberg, Senior Technical Advisor Safety at Volvo Car Corporation.
