New Subaru IIHS Top Safety Picks

A Safe Bet: 2021 Subaru Models at Island Subaru Tied for the Most Safety Awards

Here's something we're very excited about at Island Subaru on Staten Island. For 2021, out of all the car brands in America, Subaru was tied for the most "Top Safety Pick" awards presented by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS). That means Subaru is delivering on its commitment to building some of the safest vehicles made anywhere for you and your family.

In total, nine 2021 Subaru models were awarded "Top Safety Pick" recognition by IIHS, the organization that evaluates virtually all U.S. car models for key safety strengths. Top Safety Pick and Top Safety Pick+ awards are given to vehicles that perform well in IIHS crashworthiness tests, including front crash prevention that earns a superior or advanced rating, roof strength, head restraints and more.

Which 2021 Subaru Models Won Top Safety Pick Awards? The Envelope Please

The four Subaru winners for 2021 Top Safety Pick recognition were: Subaru Crosstrek and the Subaru Impreza, both for the Small Car 4-Door Wagon category, as well as the Subaru Impreza 4-Door Sedan and the Subaru WRX, both for Small Car/4-Door Sedans. All are smart, safe, practical Subaru choices that are impressing people all over Brooklyn and New York City.

Moving up to an even loftier level, five 2021 Subaru models won the highest award of all: the Top Safety Pick + award. Those vehicles: The Subaru Outback for Midsize Car/4-Door Wagons, the Subaru Legacy for the Midsize Car/4-Door Sedan category, the Subaru Ascent for Midsize SUV/4-Door SUVs, the Subaru Forester for Small 4-Door SUVs, and the Subaru Crosstrek Hybrid in the Hybrid 4-Door wagon category.

What Kind of Safety Technology Helped Subaru Win Such High Honors?

One safety feature that made a particularly strong impression on the IIHS judges was Subaru's innovative EyeSight® technology. It comes standard on the five 2021 Top Safety Pick + award winners, and it's available to help protect drivers from Woodbridge to Jersey City.

EyeSight monitors traffic movement, optimizes cruise control, and warns you when you're gradually veering outside your lane. The Automatic Pre-Collision Braking feature can apply full braking force and bring you to a complete stop in emergency situations.

Reassuringly enough, EyeSight has been found to reduce the rate of rear-end crashes with injuries by up to 85%. You may even be eligible for additional Vehicle Safety Feature savings on your car insurance if your vehicle has options like Subaru Eyesight. It's something we know our many current and future customers around Newark will really appreciate.

More Ways Subaru Protects You and Your Family

For even greater safety, Subaru automatic transmission vehicles protect you with DriverFocus. Engineered for both new and experienced drivers, Subaru DriverFocus works with Subaru EyeSight® to help detect distracted or drowsy driving. If the driver's attention strays from the highway for too long, Subaru DriverFocus can deliver visual and auditory alerts to bring attention back to the road.

Another way Subaru keeps you and your family safe is with Lane Keep Assist. It can help you steer back into your lane if your Subaru vehicle wanders too far out of the right path. Advanced Adaptive Cruise Control with Lane Centering, an all-new feature for 2021, can take more stress out of driving by helping with steering, braking, and throttle control, both in daily traffic and on long road trips.

In addition, Subaru's largest vehicle, the three-row Ascent SUV, also includes a lane-keeping assistance function and a new lane-centering assistance technology as a part of the standard EyeSight collection. Steering-responsive LED headlights help light around dark corners and curves, and are also standard on all 2021 Ascent models.

Last but hardly least, every Subaru model helps give you exceptional visibility, from generously-sized windows to a standard Rear-Vision Camera, to help avoid collisions when you're backing up.
