2018 Subaru Safety Designs, Features and Model Awards

If you have chatted with friends or family about vehicles in the marketplace that are both safe and dependable, chances are that a Subaru model came up in the conversation near or at the top of your list. Here at Bob Rohrman Subaru, we enjoy outlining the special safety features and designs that make our new Subaru lineup such an appealing inventory for drivers to choose from, and there are many distinguished awards that put this type of built-in security into perspective.

Below, we discuss some of the ways that new Subaru models are distinguished from the competition when it comes to design, technology and innovation. We also outline some of the emergency precautions these vehicles take, as well as the accolades they have collected for this thoughtful engineering and ingenuity.

         Standard Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive

Most new Subaru models in the lineup, including sedans, come with standard symmetrical all-wheel drive configurations. Sending power to all four wheels for constant traction throughout your journeys, this system is known for creating more stability on the open road and fortifying the security that you enjoy. Designed to weather all four seasons and the inclement conditions that follow, you can feel good behind the wheel of any new Subaru vehicle from summer through winter. And with class-leading ground clearance of 8.7 inches on most models within the lineup, this type of road-gripping prowess extends to the off-road nature settings you may explore.

Subaru EyeSight Driver Assist Technology

Available Subaru EyeSight Driver Assist Technology has established itself as a premier suite of active safety features for you to utilize on any commute.

From adaptive cruise control to lane keep assist and sway warning, cameras and radar sensors send audible alerts to your interior cabin in real time, helping make you aware of upcoming objects you don't see or a potential collision that may occur.

IIHS Top Safety Pick and Top Safety Pick+ Award Recipients

IIHS crash safety testing incorporates a number of important categories for a look at how your vehicle's design holds up in potential impact situations. The very pinnacle status any vehicle can earn is designated at Top Safety Pick+, with Top Safety Pick serving as the next top-level rank. The following shows how 2018 Subaru models fared with this meticulous analysis, along with other important industry awards:

  • 2018 Top Safety Pick+: 2018 Subaru Impreza, WRX, Legacy and Outback
  • 2018 Top Safety Pick: 2018 Subaru Forester and Crosstrek
  • Five Star NHTSA Overall Safety Ratings: 2018 Subaru Legacy, Forester and Outback

SUBARU STARLINK Safety and Security System

With available SUBARU STARLINK Safety and Security, emergency procedures are covered thoroughly in the unfortunate case that an accident or collision were to occur. From automatic collision notifications to SOS emergency assistance and much more, you are in good hands with this important feature activated inside of your Subaru model. Other important safety precautions these new Subaru models take include the deployment of up to eight airbags, active torque vectoring for smooth handling around corners and so much more.

There is a lot to unpack when it comes to Subaru safety. Learn more here in our showroom, as our team can walk you through specific features and even set up a test drive to experience some of these highlights in action.
