Five Volvo Models Named 2012 IIHS Top Safety Pick

It seems that Volvo still does a good job of making cars that protect its passengers, since no less than five of their models have been given the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety's (IIHS) 2012 Top Safety Pick award.

The five modes in question are the C30, S60, S80, XC60 and XC90, all of which were tested under four different accident conditions - front impacts at 40mph, side on vehicle collisions, rollover protection and rear crash protection.

"The risk of being involved in an accident or being injured in one of our latest car models has been reduced with more than two thirds compared with a Volvo from the 1970s. Now, we keep on moving towards our safety vision that nobody should die or suffer serious injuries in a new Volvo car by the year 2020", says Thomas Broberg, Senior Safety Advisor at Volvo Car Corporation.
