Comparison to all vehicles.  This plot shows RSC safety scores on the horizontal axis vs. the number of vehicles with each safety score (depicted by bar height and percentages at the bottom). Colors reflect vehicle safety, ranging from red (not that safe) to green (safer). For reference, a score of 0 implies a 0.15% chance of driver death (13% chance of driver injury) over 15 years, and a score of 100 reflects a 0.016% chance (1.4% chance of driver injury). The 2023 Volvo S60 Recharge has a score of 86, implying a 0.034% chance of driver death (3% chance of injury).

We estimate that the 2023 Volvo S60 Recharge has a vehicle lifetime fatality chance of 0.0338% and a vehicle lifetime injury chance of 3.8655%, meaning the average driver has a 0.0338% chance of dying in an accident if they drive the car under regular conditions for fifteen years, and a 3.8655% chance of being injured.

Active safety features with Volvo's IntelliSafe can substantially reduce the risks of harm to vehicle occupants by preventing severe accidents. The following active safety systems are included even on lower trims/versions of the 2023 Volvo S60 Recharge: Automatic Emergency Braking (AEB), Lane Departure Warning System, and Blind Spot Information System (BLIS).

Some safety features still may make a vehicle safer, even if not at the forefront of technological advances. Standard Automatic High Beams automatically switches high beam headlights off when oncoming traffic is approaching and turns them back on when there aren't any vehicles ahead. Standard side mirror turn signals can help when you don't see a vehicle in your blind spot, by alerting them to your intention to switch lanes, which allows the other driver to avoid an accident with you. Optional Cornering Headlights / Leveling Head Lamps better illuminate the road ahead --- the lights point towards the direction that the vehicle is heading.

But it is about as safe as many comparable models.
