IIHS had done a similar offset test for the S80, but they haven't for the S60. This says the S60 is better than the 3-series Beemer, and that got the IIHS 'best pick' rating, so looks like the S60 will keep us in good shape.<P>Altho it's interesting that the score on the Citroen was better than the Volvo. I wonder where the Volvo fell 'short.' Oh well, can't buy a Citroen in the USA, so it's a moot point. Is there an explanation of the scores for the EURO-NCAP test?<P>Thanks.<BR>
