The S60 provides a structurally stable safety cage and is particularly good at protecting its occupants in a side impact, deploying airbags to protect their heads and bodies. In the frontal impact, testers found scope for improvements to reduce chest injuries. The fascia where occupants' knees might strike could also cause injuries. Protection for children is well thought out, but that for pedestrians needs more work.
