The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety has awarded the 2012 Volvo S60 its Top Safety Pick for good performance for front, side, rollover, and rear crash protection, plus standard electronic stability control (ESC).
“The previous generation of the S60 earned good ratings in the Institute’s front and rear evaluations, but for 2005-09 it was rated acceptable in the side impact test,” the IIHS said. “The previous model wasn’t evaluated for roof strength in rollover crashes. The new model improves to good in the side impact test, and earns a good rating in the roof strength test.”
During the roof test, the 2012 Volvo S60 withstood a force equal to 4.95 times the car’s weight.
