Subaru Wins 9 IIHS Awards


The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety founded its TOP SAFETY PICK award in 2006 to help educate consumers and allow them to evaluate vehicles based on their overall safety ratings. The IIHS, for 2020, has reinforced award criteria prioritizing the protection of both vehicle passengers and pedestrians.

Since the launch of the TOP SAFETY PICK award, this is the seventh time the IIHS has raised its vehicle testing criteria. This strategy has inspired automakers to quickly adopt comprehensive safety innovations and push them to develop new technology.

To secure a TOP SAFETY PICK or TOP SAFETY PICK+ award, a vehicle must receive a 'Good' rating in all the six IIHS crashworthiness assessments. All Subaru models equipped with EyeSight® Driver Assist Technology earned a 'Superior" rating in front crash prevention.

Subaru Corporation supports the IIHS's endeavors to revolutionize the automotive industry to attain higher vehicle safety and occupant protection levels. Over the 14 years since its launch, the IIHS criteria have become stricter. Thus, consumers should not equate the 2020 ratings with those from previous years, but rather hold the award in higher regard.



Subaru claimed 9 IIHS Awards this year, which was tied for the most awards for any brand for 2020. Below is the breakdown of which model received which award!

The following vehicle brands received the Top Safety Pick award:

  • Ascent (with specific headlights)
