Why Subaru Vehicles are Safe

Why Subaru vehicles are safe
 
Many factors go into the car buying decision process. Price, style, affordability, and fuel efficiency all influence whether to buy a vehicle or not. Arguably the most important factor is safety. Whether you’re driving by yourself or with others, your number one priority should be making sure everyone who is in the vehicle stays safe. One of the safest car companies on the market today is Subaru.
 
For four years running, Subaru has achieved Top Safety Pick awards for all models, from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS). The IIHS is a leader in preventing crashes and minimizing injuries in the event of a collision. To determine whether a vehicle is safe in their eyes, they follow a series of five tests to determine how well a vehicle protects its occupants in a crash.
 
To achieve a Top Safety Pick, the vehicle must receive “good” ratings in the moderate overlap front, side, rear and rollover tests. Considering “good” is the highest rating possible, a Top Safety Pick is not easy to achieve.
 
While some models are clearly safer than others, overall every new Subaru on the market is very safe and should allow you to become more comfortable behind the wheel.
