This large Volvo is very safe and gave a good all round performance, especially in side impact where the driver's head is well protected by a drop-down curtain airbag. Euro NCAP has previously tested the rear-facing child restraint system that is among the safest performing overall. It does rely on a floor stay for stability and this did not perform as well as it has before. Pedestrian protection is average for this size of car, giving some cushioning for head impacts but is very aggressive for pedestrians' legs and earned no points at all.
