Safety in the Real World

There are a lot of claims from various car companies who say they are "as safe" or "safer than Volvo". While those claims refer to some studio-crash tests in very controlled environments, it is the real world where safety has meaning.

And it is in the real world in which Volvo's City Safety technolgoy has been proving its worth.

A newly published analysis from the Highway Loss Data Institute (HLDI) and the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) indicates that Volvo XC60s get into fewer low-speed crashes than comparable vehicles thanks to Volvo's City Safety technology, a standard feature on all XC60s.

HLDI examined claim frequency under property damage liability, bodily injury liability and collisions. Their data concluded frequency rates for the XC60 were lower than all other midsize luxury SUVs, specifically:

Claims under property damage liability coverage were filed 27 percent less often for the XC60 than other midsize luxury SUVs.

Claim frequencies for injuries for the XC60 were filed about half as often compared to other midsize luxury SUVs.

Collision claim frequencies for the XC60 were 22 percent lower than all other midsize luxury SUVs.
