SUBARU OUTBACK EXCELS IN UPDATED IIHS SIDE CRASH TEST
8 August, 2022
 

  • Outback is the only midsize car to receive a good rating

  • IIHS to include the updated test in 2023 Top Safety Pick award criteria


(MISSISSAUGA, ONT.) — Subaru Canada, Inc. (SCI) is delighted to share the latest results of the updated side crash test performed by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS). Of the seven midsize cars tested, the Subaru Outback was the only model to receive an overall good rating, the test’s highest honour.


The updated side crash test uses a heavier barrier travelling at a higher speed to simulate the striking vehicle. The new barrier weighs 4,200 pounds — close to the weight of today’s midsize SUVs — and strikes the test vehicle at 37 mph, compared with a 3,300-pound barrier travelling at 31 mph in the original evaluation.


The head-protecting airbags were noted to have performed well in the Outback, while a lower level of occupant compartment intrusion aided the model in receiving its good rating.


“Receiving this rating is a testament to our dedication to occupant safety,” said SCI chairman, president and CEO Yasushi Enami. “It provides yet another example of uncommon safety found in a Subaru.”


For now, the updated test is not included in the IIHS award criteria. However, starting in 2023, a good or acceptable rating will be required for the lower-tier TOP SAFETY PICK award and a good rating will be needed for the higher-tier TOP SAFETY PICK+, which the Outback currently holds for 2022.


The Outback is Subaru’s midsize SUV-alternative, offering rugged capability, carlike handling and award-winning safety.
