Re: XC60 real life roll over crash test (ifnt420)

Correct me if I'm wrong, but the accident looks like a real-life one as it is on the street... and looking at the number plates, I guess this happened in China. But the number plate on the XC60 isn't a Chinese one? <p>Well, the XC60 did very very well... looks like the centre of the windscreen where the City Safety sensor is took the brunt of it. At least the roof held up anyway... <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://********************/smile/emthup.gif" BORDER="0"> <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://********************/smile/emthup.gif" BORDER="0"> <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://********************/smile/emthup.gif" BORDER="0">

Re: XC60 real life roll over crash test (ifnt420)

I doesn't look like the moon roof broke either. I was wondering how it would hold up since it's larger than those of the past. <p>Looks like it held up pretty well.<p>John

well done volvo!<p>The moonroof held up so well because volvo wouldnt put such a glass roof into production without extensive testing and some unique design solutions to ensure the car is safe.

Re: XC60 real life roll over crash test (rossmelvin)

that is downright impressive! Other than the left D-pillar, there isn't buckling along any of the other pillars. <p>I don't think you have to worry about the seat covers either, i'm sure they were "soiled" during the roll-over.

Re: XC60 real life roll over crash test (tytek)

Looks like it held up pretty well considering the concrete post it hit. <p>John

Re: XC60 real life roll over crash test (tytek)

Wow... a real eye opener... <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/eek.gif" BORDER="0"> <p>Must have hit the pole at quite high speeds to flip the car like this...

Look at the way the right-hand side is pushed in... Must've slid into the pole or <i>something</i>...
