2018 Volvo XC60 joins Top Safety Pick Plus ranksby Justin King
The redesigned XC60 brings a rare downgrade in headlight performance, failing to meet the \'good\' rating of the 2017 edition.
Volvo's redesigned XC60 has joined a growing list of Top Safety Pick Plus winners in the midsize luxury SUV segment.
The 2018 edition aced all five crashworthiness tests, while its standard front crash prevention system has improved from an 'advanced' to a 'superior' rating by avoiding collisions at 12 mph and 25 mph.
The redesigned model brings a rare downgrade in headlight performance, failing to meet the 'good' rating of the best headlights available for the 2017 model year.
The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety found that the new XC60's low beams created 'some glare' and were inadequate on a gradual left curve. With the high beams activated, visibility lacked on sharp right and left curves.
The Mercedes-Benz GLC is currently the only vehicle in the segment to earn TSP+ with a 'good' headlight rating.
