Remember that water boils at 100 degrees celsius, but with a 50 / 50 mixture of water to coolant, your boiling point is raised to 120 degrees, and the car isn't considered to be overheating until the temp exceeds 130 degrees. - suginami
True, and the design of the system to be under pressure raises the boiling point of the mixture significantly as well. (PV=nrT)
