The IIHS has awarded all Subaru models with Top Safety Pick recognition for the third year in a row
Online PR News – 27-October-2012 – Naples, FL – Subaru is proud to announce that they are the only vehicle manufacturer that has received an IIHS Top Safety Pick for all of their vehicle models. The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety Top Safety Pick is one of the highest awards a vehicle can receive. Subaru is excited to say that all of their models have received this pick now for three years in a row.
Subaru vehicles have several great safety features that make them stand out amongst competitors. The frame inside a Subaru is built as a ring-shaped reinforcement which helps provide high-impact protection for the passengers. Up to six airbags are also featured in the advanced airbag system. All Subaru engines are placed low, protecting the passenger area during a front-end collision.
Vehicle Dynamics Control is a stability control system featured in Subaru vehicles. The system automatically senses steering and braking inputs in order to keep the vehicle on track. The Anti-Lock Braking System assists the driver in stopping situations by pulsing braking power in order to prevent the wheel from locking.
Another great, new safety feature is the Electronic Brake-Force Distribution. This system was created to optimize the distribution of braking force between the front and rear wheels, depending on the weight distributed between passengers and cargo. This system works with the Brake Assist system to ensure that maximum pressure is applied to the brakes as quickly as possible in the case of an emergency situation.
This year Subaru debuted a brand-new safety feature for 2013 models. EyeSight consists of two cameras, mounted by the rearview mirror, that monitor traffic and even react to conditions before the driver has a chance. When EyeSight sees a problem, it automatically initiates the safety feature that will help avoid the trouble best. EyeSight will also alert the driver with a sound while flashing a visual warning that there is danger of a collision. The system will then automatically apply the brakes if the driver has not already.
With several innovative safety features, clear visibility and several standard airbags, there is no doubt as to why Subaru vehicles receive top safety picks.
