Is safety important?

This is where the Subaru brand shines compared with all other SUVs. It’s a core value for the Japanese automaker as they’ve focused on developing the top safety features and they get top marks every year from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS). Subaru has the most top safety picks among all automakers along with one other brand. Check out the full details here.

It’s not the only best-for-family award for Subaru

The 2020 Outback SUV/Crossover is all-new and is also racking up family awards. Outback recently scored the Best Car for Families award for 2020 from Digital Trends. They say Outback isn’t just a segment winner, the SUV beats every car in America to take the Best Family Car award.

That’s impressive when you consider all the family vehicles it went up against. Digital Trends says they put family vehicles through a comprehensive scrutinizing process, checking out everything from interior features, safety tech, and real-world testing, driving them on highways, back roads, as well as off-road tracks.
