Subaru Receives IIHS Top Safety Pick for ALL Models

Now that the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) has rolled out test results for 66 models, carmakers are rushing to praise their cars for the high level of safety they provide. Subaru however has its very own reason to be proud of: the Japanese manufacturer is the only carmaker that received a Top Safety Pick for all of its models. In other words, each of the models Subaru is selling in the United States is considered one of the safest vehicles in the class it competes in.

"We know our customers take their safety very seriously and so we are very pleased that IIHS has recognized us again as the only manufacturer with a Top Safety Pick winner for all its models," said Tom Doll, executive vice president and COO, Subaru of America, Inc. "This is an outstanding success and a tribute to the engineering that goes into our products. The IIHS reinforces to our customers that Subaru maintains the highest standards to produce vehicles that are fun-to- drive, durable, reliable as well as safe."

As usual, the tested Subaru models, just like any other car that received a Top Safety Pick, has scored a Good rating in all front, side, rear and rollover crashtests. In order to be eligible for this recognition, the vehicle must be equipped with electronic stability control.

"Subaru is the only manufacturer with a Top Safety Pick winner in every vehicle class in which it competes," said IIHS president Adrian Lund. "The vehicles that earn this designation are the cream of the crop for protecting people in the most common kinds of crashes, and they have electronic stability control for helping drivers stay out of many crashes altogether."
