The 2018 Subaru Crosstrek and WRX with optional EyeSight and specific head lights meet IIHS' highest possible safety rating, Top Safety Pick+.

10 Oct 2017 | International News : Japan

Subaru Corporation today announced that the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) has awarded their highest possible safety rating, 2017 TOP SAFETY PICK+ (TSP+) to the redesigned 2018 Subaru Crosstrek and WRX in addition to the 2018 Subaru Legacy, Outback, Forester and Impreza (when equipped with Optional EyeSight and specific head lights).

To earn the TSP+ award, a vehicle must have good ratings in all five IIHS crashworthiness tests - small overlap front, moderate overlap front, side, roof strength and head restraints - an advanced or superior rating for front crash prevention and an acceptable or good head light rating.

In addition to across-the-board good crashworthiness ratings, the Crosstrek has optional front crash prevention that earns a superior rating. In IIHS track tests at 20km/h and 40km/h, a Crosstrek equipped with Subaru's original EyeSight driver assist system avoided collisions. It also has a forward collision warning system that meets National Highway Traffic Safety Administration criteria. Meanwhile, improved head lights boost the 2018 WRX into TSP+ territory. When equipped with high beam assist and LED lights that come with the Limited trim, the 2018 WRX earns a good head light rating.
