Recently, the 2013 Subaru BRZ received a rating of goodthe highest possiblefrom the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) in all categories, including the moderate overlap frontal, side, rear, and rollover impact evaluations. With the induction of this Subaru as a Top Safety Pick by the IIHS, Subaru maintains its legendary status as the only automotive manufacturer to have all its vehicles named Top Safety Picks by the IIHS, a status that Subaru has achieved three years in a row.
Of the BRZ and the Top Safety Pick news, executive vice president and COO of Subaru of America, Inc., Thomas J. Doll said, "With BRZ, Subaru has brought back the affordable sports car; and FHI engineering in the product has led not only to great driving fun but also top safety marks. We are passionate and uncompromising in our commitment to safety.
Subaru is thrilled to continue as an industry leader in this area."
During IIHS testing, vehicles are evaluated in their ability to protect passengers in the event of front, side, rear, and rollover crashes. The IIHS ranks each vehicle in each category as either good, acceptable, marginal, or poor. To be a Top Safety Pick, vehicles must receive a good in all four categories, as well as feature electronic stability control. Subaru meets all of these expectations with every one of its vehicles.
Institute president, Adrian Lund admits, Its tough to win, and we commend Subaru for making safety a top priority.
