Barely a month old, the all-new 2014 Subaru Forester has already received the highest safety award in the world.
Subaru announced that its all-new 2014 Forester has been awarded the Top Five-Star Rating in the Euro NCAP Safety Test. This is the highest possible rating a car can get in the 2012 European New Car Assessment Program (Euro NCAP) safety performance test. This is just the third time in Subaru’s history that the Japanese automaker has been honored with the prestigious five star rating from Euro NCAP. It follows the 2009 rating for the Subaru Legacy and the 2011 rating for the Subaru XV Crosstrek. Now the barely month old 2014 Forester get accolades for achieving the top rating.
When you think of safe automobiles, the Volvo brand is the one that is often mentioned, but Subaru is becoming known for having some of the safest vehicles on the planet. In the U.S., the top safety rating is administered by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS), and Subaru with the recent top safety award for the all-new SV Crosstrek, is the only manufacturer with 2012 IIHS Top Safety Picks for its entire lineup. And this is the third year running that Subaru has the distinction of earning the top safety pick from IIHS for every model it builds.
