2022 Volvo XC40
When Swedish automaker Volvo brought out the XC40 for the 2019 model year, the compact crossover immediately earned a Top Safety Pick+ ranking; however, it fell off the safest new cars list a year later when the IIHS added more stringent headlight requirements. Last year Volvo made the signature LED projector “Thor’s Hammer” headlights standard across all trims of the XC40. Also standard on all XC40 trims is City Safety, which features collision avoidance that detects vehicles, pedestrians, cyclists and animals, and it can automatically apply the brakes as needed. Additional safety features include run-off-road mitigation and protection, lane keeping and oncoming lane mitigation, and a whiplash protection system for front-seat occupants.
