The 2023-24 Volvo XC60 and XC60 Recharge PHEV have once again reaffirmed their commitment to safety excellence by earning the prestigious IIHS (Insurance Institute for Highway Safety) Top Safety Pick awards. These midsize luxury SUVs have consistently demonstrated their dedication to protecting drivers, passengers, and pedestrians alike.

To secure the coveted TOP SAFETY PICK recognition in 2023, a vehicle must meet rigorous criteria. This includes achieving good ratings in critical categories such as the driver-side small overlap front, passenger-side small overlap front, and original moderate overlap front tests. Additionally, the vehicle must earn an acceptable or good rating in the updated side test. Illuminating the road ahead with safe and effective headlights is a must, as acceptable or good headlights must be standard across all trim levels. Equally crucial is the presence of a front crash prevention system, which must attain either an advanced or superior rating in the daytime vehicle-to-pedestrian evaluation.

For the even more prestigious TOP SAFETY PICK+ award, the bar is set even higher. In addition to good ratings in the updated side test, vehicles vying for this distinction must demonstrate advanced or superior performance in both the daytime and nighttime pedestrian tests. Achieving this elite status is a testament to a vehicle’s unwavering dedication to safety across all aspects of its design and performance.

Both the 2023-24 Volvo XC60 and XC60 Recharge PHEV rise to the occasion with flying colors. These vehicles come equipped with standard front crash prevention systems that not only earn superior ratings in the daytime evaluation but also advanced ratings in the nighttime test. This dual capability ensures that they are prepared to protect drivers and pedestrians in a variety of lighting conditions, day or night.

In the realm of illumination, all trim levels of these Volvos come equipped with headlights that have earned an acceptable rating, providing drivers with consistent visibility and reducing the risk of accidents caused by poor lighting conditions. However, while their performance is commendable in many areas, achieving the “plus” designation is reserved for vehicles that excel in every dimension of safety.

These midsize luxury SUVs offer drivers and passengers peace of mind, knowing that they prioritize safety above all else. With advanced safety features, superior crash prevention systems, and effective lighting, Volvo continues to be at the forefront of vehicle safety, setting a standard for others to aspire to.
