About the IIHS TOP SAFETY PICK Awards

In 2006, the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety founded its TOP SAFETY PICK award in an effort to educate consumers on vehicular safety. This award serves as a mark that allows consumers to evaluate vehicles based on their overall safety ratings, and make the best choice for them.

In order to be given a TOP SAFETY PICK or TOP SAFETY PICK+ award, a vehicle must receive a 'Good' rating in all six IIHS crashworthiness assessments, 'Advanced' or 'Superior' ratings for available front crash prevention, and an 'Acceptable' or 'Good' rating for standard headlights. All Subaru models equipped with EyeSight® Driver Assist Technology earned a 'Superior' rating in front crash prevention.

Over the years, the IIHS has updated its criteria for winning the TOP SAFETY PICK and TOP SAFETY PICK+ awards, making them stricter than those of previous years. Because of this, Subaru has pushed technology to new heights, innovating safety features for drivers and pedestrians alike.
