Top marks all around.

But I heard that the only area of testing criteria where the V40 fell down was in child safety. In that category it received just a 75 percent mark. Volvo says it is working “continuously on improving the already high safety level of our cars through ongoing research into the reasons behind road accidents and by gaining in-depth understanding of the results of actual collisions.” Perhaps child safety is an area it could put more of that effort toward in the future. I have read the info here: 2013 Volvo V40 gets all-time high safety rating.
