Why is Subaru the Safest Car?

Recently, I’ve been searching for a car with top safety ratings for my daughter, and Subaru keeps appearing at the top of many lists as the safest car. Do you know why Subaru is the safest car?

Subaru consistently ranks as the safest car for two key reasons: superior attention to build quality combined with passive and active safety technology.
Subarus are built with solid, robust frames designed to withstand collisions and are famously some of the sturdiest vehicles on the market. In addition to their reliable and long-lasting builds, Subarus include these key safety features which make them stand out above the rest:
  • Accident-Avoidance systems: Subarus are equipped with advanced accident avoidance systems to keep passengers safe by keeping them out of harm’s way in the first place.
  • Electronic Stability Control: This system is designed to keep the vehicle extra-stable on or off the road.
  • Safety-belt features: Superior seat belt technology keeps passengers safe and secure when accidents do occur.
  • EyeSight technology: these systems use dual cameras to detect potential driving dangers and adjust the car to the outside conditions.
  • Traction control: this new addition to Subaru models makes driving off-road or in treacherous conditions safer.
These are just a few of the many different passive and active safety technologies that Subaru has developed and made available on every Subaru model. If you’re looking for the very best of the best in safety, opt for the Subaru Outback, the Subaru Legacy, or the Subaru Forester
