The 2015 Subaru Outback is One of the Safest Vehicles on the Road
Subaru is well-known for giving safety a high priority when developing vehicles and the new Outback is an excellent example of that. The Outback managed to receive two of the gloves highest safety awards available thanks to some great advancements that were made to it. It’s now sturdier and offers more proactive warnings than ever before, which is great news for the driver and passengers as well as any nearby pedestrians.
The Outback managed to achieve the top five star rating available from the Euro NCAP safety rating system. It scored highly in adult occupant protection, child occupant protection. Pedestrian protection and safety assist while also managing to handle barrier tests well. According to the results the Outback is safe for everyone riding in it as well as the people out on the road.
The second of the two awards was even more impressive and it was given in Japan. The JNCAP testing agency is very stringent with their testing and they give each vehicle a rating between 0 and 40. Any vehicle that manages to get a 2 or higher is given the ASV or Advanced Safety Vehicle designation. Anything with a score of 12 or more is an ASV+ vehicle. The Outback blew those markers out of the water by achieving the very highest amount of points possible, it managed to score a 40 on the test thanks to its careful design and suite of safety features.
Major Safety Improvements
The 2015 Subaru Outback has received a variety of improvements to safety features. Additional airbags are present and they are located at the front, at knee level, at the side and as curtain bags to protect all passengers. The vehicle handles impacts better than before thanks to improvements made to the very durable ring-shaped frame that Subaru uses on all their vehicles. The automaker relied on high-tensile steel plates more than it has in the past, and that really upped its durability. The optional EyeSight system is upgraded as well, making it more responsive and capable of predicting accidental situations before they become a real issue.
Overall the 2015 Subaru Outback is more capable of protecting its passengers than ever before. It’s the type of vehicle that you can trust to protect your family and according to both Japan and Europe it’s one of the best out there for safety purposes. Subaru values safety and their latest Outback just serves to reinforce that concept even more.
