Before a new car model becomes available on the market, it undergoes a series of safety tests to ensure the safety of the passengers in case of a mishap. The agency responsible for conducting these tests is the International Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS), which routinely evaluates automobiles and provides safety assessments for the motoring public. Recently, all seven models from Subaru passed IIHS testing for the fifth year in a row, making it the most reliable automobile maker in the market.
Recipe for safety
Subaru has always been big on collision protection since the 1960s. It is the only car manufacturer to incorporate crash safety features into its specifications, long before other brands started to do so. It began with increasing cabin rigidity which can absorb impacts from all directions.
It starts with design
Before a model is put into production, it has to meet safety targets first. The design team uses advanced computer imagery to create impact simulations. Once a prototype has been built, a real crash assessment is conducted in Subaru’s testing facilities, and the results are integrated into the prototype’s finalization.
Subaru dealerships guarantee the 2015 lineup of vehicles will be just as safe (if not safer) than before. Motorists can be assured that the BRZ, Impreza, WRX/STI, XV Crosstrek, Forester, Legacy and Outback models are among the safest on America’s roads. You know you’re in good hands when you hit the road in a Subaru.
