Subaru’s Most Popular Models Awarded Top Safety Pick+

Subaru has made a name for themselves in the industry by being innovative leaders in performance and utility. Subaru vehicles are well known for their legendary off-road capabilities, reliability, and resale value. This year, 2017, has been an amazing year for Subaru. They have been awarded accolades from across the industry for their innovative user experience, top tier performance, and their state of the art high-tech interior features. Adding to the amazing year for Subaru and their owners, the Impreza, Legacy, Outback, Forester, Crosstrek, and WRX have all received the rating of Top Safety Pick Plus from the Insurance Institute of Highway Safety. Subaru doesn’t just make the most reliable performance vehicles on the market, they also make the safest. 

“Subaru is committed to developing the highest safety standards for our vehicles,” said Thomas J. Doll, president and chief operating officer, Subaru of America, Inc., “and receiving the IIHS TOP SAFETY PICK+ award for all our 2018 models equipped with EyeSight and LED Steering Responsive Headlights proves this commitment to our customers.” 

All Subaru models that are equipped with EyeSight Driver Assist Technology and LED Steering Responsive Headlights received the Top Safety Pick Plus rating from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety. EyeSight technology gives the driver increased confidence when driving. The EyeSight system monitors traffic, optimizes cruise control, and gives audible warnings if you start to drift from your lane. EyeSight has a pre-collision braking system that can apply full brake force in emergency situations. This helps drivers avoid collisions when possible, and reduce frontal impact force if collisions are unavoidable. 

The EyeSight system utilizes a pair of forward mounted color cameras placed near the rearview mirror. The EyeSight system uses these cameras to scan the road for obstructions and warns the driver of any unanticipated danger. This advanced system is designed to provide the driver with peace of mind while on the road.

Subaru models received the 2017 TOP SAFETY PICK award by achieving the highest possible rating from the IIHS crashworthiness evaluations of front small overlap, front moderate overlap, side impact, roof crush, and rear impact. When equipped with EyeSight Subaru models received a rating of “Superior” in front crash prevention testing. The Subaru Impreza, Legacy, Outback, and Forester, have all been Top Safety Picks for the past seven years. The Subaru Crosstrek has been rated as a top safety pick every year since its release in 2012, and the WRX has received these honors for the past three years.
