  • Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) and Consumer Reports (CR) release 2023 teen vehicle recommendations

    • Four Subaru models achieved Best Choice in the used vehicle category

    • Four Subaru models get recommended in the new vehicle category

  • Subaru has earned more IIHS TSP+ awards than any other brand since 2013*

  • Consumer Reports ranks Subaru as the best mainstream automotive brand

(MISSISSAUGA, ONT.) — Subaru Canada, Inc. (SCI) is pleased to share the recent teen vehicle recommendations for 2023, published by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) and Consumer Reports (CR). As part of the results, four Subaru nameplates received the honour of Best Choices in the used vehicle category and four Subaru models received recommendations as new vehicles for teen drivers.

Recommended used vehicles are divided into Best Choices and Good Choices. Receiving Best Choice included Subaru Impreza sedan or wagon (2018MY, 2022MY), Subaru Legacy (2013-2021MY; built after August 2012), Subaru Outback (2015-2018MY, 2022MY), and Subaru Forester (2018MY or newer).

To qualify as a Best Choice, a vehicle must have standard electronic stability control, above-average reliability based on CR’s member survey for the majority of the years listed, average or better scores from CR’s emergency handling tests, dry braking distances of less than 145 feet from 60 mph in CR’s brake tests, good ratings in four IIHS crashworthiness tests — original moderate overlap front, original side, roof strength and head restraints, four or five stars from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (if rated), and a good or acceptable rating in the IIHS driver-side small overlap front test, which was launched in 2012.

Recommended new vehicles are held to an even higher standard than the Best Choices of the used vehicles, and included the Subaru Legacy, Subaru Outback, Subaru Forester, and Subaru Ascent. All new vehicle selections had to be 2023 IIHS TOP SAFETY PICK or TOP SAFETY PICK+ winners and rank top in their respective classes in CR’s evaluations.

“For teen drivers, safety is paramount,” said SCI chairman, president and CEO Tomohiro Kubota. “It is encouraging to see so many new and used models recognized by IIHS and Consumer Reports. We strive to continue to offer Canadians of all ages reliable, safe, and exciting products.”

Consumer Reports ranks Subaru as the best mainstream automotive brand. The Ascent, Impreza, Legacy and Outback are recommended models, and the Forester is a Top Pick (for ten consecutive years) by Consumer Reports.**

Since 2013, Subaru has received a cumulative total of 69 IIHS TOP SAFETY PICK+ awards, which is more than any other brand.* ***
