2013 Subaru XV Crosstrek award keeps Subaru #1
With the all-new Subaru Crosstrek awarded the IIHS 2012 Top Safety Pick, Subaru is the only manufacturer with 2012 IIHS Top Safety Picks for its entire lineup. That is a significant accomplishment for the Japanese automaker as they remain the only one to do it. When you think of safety, Volvo is the first automaker that comes to mind, but all Subaru’s including the new 2013 SV Crosstrek have received the highest-possible rating in IIHS evaluations. All Subaru cars need to be recognized as some of the safest cars on the planet.
This is the third year running that Subaru has the distinction of earning the top safety pick from IIHS for every model it builds. The 2013 Subaru BRZ received the award last month, and now the all-new 2013 XV Crosstrek earned a “good” rating which is the the top rank a vehicle can receive. Cars must pass the test in the moderate overlap frontal, side, rollover and rear impact evaluations from IIHS.
IIHS president Adrian Lund said, “For three years running, Subaru is the only automotive manufacturer with the distinction of earning IIHS Top Safety Pick awards for every model it builds. It’s tough to win, and we commend Subaru for making safety a top priority.”
