Volvo gets the full five stars as Ford fails miserably with just the two Euro Ncap Stars.
Today, Euro NCAP releases safety ratings for three cars: the Volvo S90 saloon and the V90 estate both achieve the maximum of five stars, while Ford’s Mustang scores two.
Launched last year, the S90 and V90 are the latest additions to the Volvo Cars line-up and the first cars to be tested against Euro NCAP’s 2017 test regime.
Both models take advantage of the many advanced technologies of the XC90 and made a big impression in all areas of Euro NCAP’s assessment. Standard-fit autonomous emergency braking for cars and pedestrians performed outstandingly well in Euro NCAP’s tests and the vehicles also offer lane and speed assistance.
The S90 and V90 results surpass the best overall score of any model tested last year and now make Euro NCAP’s top-3 best performing cars ever, all Volvo.
