Perhaps one of the main reasons why there is a growing demand for Subaru cars all over the world is because the brand was able to build a reputation of building very safe vehicles.
Just recently this 2015, Subaru XV Crosstrek and Impreza received the top rating of Advanced Safety Vehicle-Plus (ASV+) from the Japan New Car Assessment Program (JNCAP).
Safety has always been the top priority of Fuji Heavy Industries Ltd. (FHI) when building Subaru automobiles. In fact, Subaru has never failed to meet the safety standards and preventive safety performance assessment tests set by the JDM a counterpart of the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety in the United States.
The company has initiated to conduct an independent testing of vehicles since 1960 which only shows Subaru’s commitment to getting the highest safety ratings for all their car models.
Subaru’s latest car models XV and Impreza have joined the line-up of the brand’s top of the line ASV+ rated vehicles. The maximum rating points of 40 were awarded to both cars as they were able to pass JNCAP’s two testing systems. These tests include the Autonomous Emergency Braking System (AEBS) and the Lane Departure Warning System (LDWS). Other Subaru models that were also awarded ASV+ with a maximum rating of 40 points include Legacy, Outback, Levorg, and WRX while Forester and Subaru XV Hybrid had a rating of 39.9 and 39.3 points respectively. All these models are equipped with a safety system technology called EyeSight which excels in pre-crash safety performance.
