IIHS Top Safety Pick

The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) stands as one of many nonprofit new car assessment programs (NCAPs) based in the US. IIHS receives funding from auto insurance companies to rate each new car according to their crashworthiness, standard safety features, and protective capabilities. A new car must receive the highest "Good" ratings in several important categories to achieve Top Safety Pick status. These categories include Moderate Overlap Front, New Overlap Side, and Roof Strength, and seat head restraints. As of now, these new Subaru models achieved Top Safety Pick Status:

  • Impreza (four-door sedan and five-door hatchback)
