Subaru Earns Three 2022 IIHS TOP SAFETY PICK+ Awards  

Subaru of America announced exciting news about how three of its cars earned the IIHS Top Safety Pick+ awards. To earn that award, the vehicles tested must receive "Good" ratings in each of the IIHS's six crashworthiness evaluations. Every vehicle in Subaru's lineup this year earned the award, which has them on Cloud Nine.

What It All Means

In 2022, Subaru can brag that nine of its models won the IIHS Top Safety Pick+ awards. Subaru believes in a unique philosophy on safety, which contains four elements: primary safety, passive safety, driving safety, and preventive safety. This unique all-around philosophy was built to help the brand excel in that realm.

The models to win this year include:

  • 2022 Subaru BRZ
  • 2022 Ascent
  • 2022 WRX
  • 2023 Legacy
  • 2023 Outback
  • 2023 Crosstrek Hybrid
  • 2023 Forester
  • 2023 Crosstrek
  • 2023 Impreza

Subaru has racked up abundant safety awards since 2013, with a grand total of 66. That total sets them miles ahead of the competition, and they have led the pack for the most awards from IIHS since 2013.

Impressive Record: Worthy of Mention

Over the years, Subaru told everyone how they wanted to become the leader in safety features. The latest just puts them more in that direction. For 14 straight years in a row, the Subaru Outback has won the IIHS Top Safety Pick+ award. That impressive record should demonstrate a commitment to safety features and to its customers.

The Subaru Legacy holds the most impressive record due to winning the IIHS Top Safety Pick+ award for 17 consecutive years. The 2022 WRX won the award for the first time this year, kicking off a new model to hold the award under the Subaru banner.

Why They Won

What distinguished Subaru in 2022 was its EyeSight driver assistance technology. All three 2022 models earned the "Superior" rating for front crash prevention. Their commitment has helped them to stand out among the other noteworthy rival brands competing for the award.
