Subaru models continue to succeed in government crash safety tests

Manufactuer currently on track to continue four-year streak of top safety ratings for all models

TOPEKA, Kan., Nov. 15, 2013 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- Over the years, Subaru has proved they are a manufacturer grounded in safety. Although the vehicle designs are innovative and aesthetically appealing, form follows function in every model. That mentality has helped all of the manufacturer's vehicles to receive Top Safety Pick ratings from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety four years in a row. Subaru is the only automaker to have ever achieved this feat, and is on track to do so again this year—even with the IIHS addition of a new small overlap front test.


The 2014 Subaru Forester is among the limited number of models that have gone on to pass all safety tests with the highest possible rating of "good." Among the features that led to the Forester's unmatched performance in the new IIHS crash test are seven standard airbags and a reinforced chassis. Much like the Boxer engine—which sits low to keep it from entering the cabin in a head-on collision—the chassis protects the cabin by directing collision impact through the frame rather than the cabin. On top of its superior safety rating, consumers are sure to appreciate the fuel efficiency of the SUV, which is estimated at 32 mpg on the highway.

Another new offering to the Subaru lineup is the 2014 Subaru Outback which also received the highest possible safety rating from the IIHS. One of the benefits of the Outback is that it's able to provide two different engine options, making it a suitable vehicle for a wide range of lifestyles. Consumers who require more power will undoubtedly find what they need in the V-6 engine, which is capable of a 256 horsepower output. Those seeking efficiency can find just that in the four-cylinder option which delivers satisfactory power while achieving a highway fuel economy rating of 30 mpg.

Both the 2014 Subaru Forester and 2014 Subaru Outback are currently available at Briggs Subaru of Topeka in Kansas.
