Drew, GREAT news, I was wondering if anyone was going to do a test. 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.

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?
