Comments

The XC60 shows very good control of pollutant emissions, even in the more challenging tests. Particulate number is low, values of ammonia, NH3, are barely measurable and, with the exception of the congestion test, NOx is kept in check.

The XC60 is a large, heavy car and this counts against its energy efficiency. The car has an average consumption of 7.3 l/100 km and its index in this part of the assessment is 2.5.

Comments

Emissions of Methane, CH4, are not high. However, those of CO2 and of laughing gas, N2O, are above Green NCAP's upper limits. The negative points for these greenhouse gases offset those gained for CH4 and the vehicle ends up with a index of 0 in this part of the assessment.

Our verdict

The XC60 is tested here with the 2.0 litre turbodiesel engine. Its exhaust after-treatment does an excellent job of controlling pollutant emissions. Particulate number is very low for a vehicle of this type and low emissions of other pollutants lead to an impressive 6.7/10 in this part of the assessment. Sadly, this level of performance is not repeated in in energy efficiency or emissions of greenhouse gases. The car's size and weight count against it and it gets 2.5/10 for Energy Efficiency. But it is in the area of greenhouse gases that the XC60 B4 really performs poorly, with values of N2O sufficiently high that the car scores nothing in this part of the assessment. Overall, the Volvo's average index only just puts it into the 2 star band.
