The Subaru Outback is one of the Top Safety Picks from Insurance Institute for Highway Safety

Nobody thinks they’re going to have a fender-bender today, but if you have to have one, you’d best have it in a Subaru, say experts. Each of the company’s models – the 2013MY Subaru Forester, Impreza, XV Crosstrek, Legacy, BRZ Subaru Outback, and Tribeca vehicles have received the 2013 Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) Top Safety Pick award (TSP.)

The 2013 Subaru Legacy and Subaru Outback are also the first Subaru vehicles to have been tested for the Institute’s 2013 “TSP+” award which requires “good” ratings for occupant protection in at least 4 of 5 IIHS evaluations. Anything less than good is a fail. Both vehicles are now rated as TSP+.

“The strong ratings of our products in IIHS testing supports Subaru’s belief in safety,” said Thomas J. Doll, executive vice president and COO, Subaru of America, Inc. “Having 100% of our models listed as IIHS Top Safety Picks and now the Legacy and Outback models tested to TSP+ status demonstrates that.”

It’s not a fluke, either – Subaru is the sole manufacturer to win IIHS Top Safety Pick for each model it builds for four years in a row.
