Press Release : 2014 Subaru Forester Aces New IIHS Crash Test

Introduced last year by IIHS, the new “Front Small Overlap Crash” test proves to be difficult for automakers.  According to IIHS, the all-new 2014 Subaru Forester was the only one out of 13 small SUVs to earn an overall rating of “good” in the test, and was one of only two small SUVs to win the 2013 Top Safety Pick+.

The new “Front Small Overlap Crash” test proves to be trouble for automakers because besides Subaru Forester, the only vehicle that earned an acceptable rating in the new test and awarded the 2013 Top Safety Pick+ was the 2013 Mitsubishi Outlander Sport; the rest of the vehicles were rated marginal or poor in this test.

Rated marginal were the 2013 BMW X1, 2013 Honda CR-V, 2014 Mazda CX-5, 2013 Nissan Rogue and 2013 Volkswagen Tiguan.

Rated poor were the 2013 Buick Encore, 2013 Ford Escape, 2013 Hyundai Tucson, 2014 Jeep Patriot and 2013 Kia Sportage.

Winning this award helped Subaru maintain its flawless status for four consecutive years (2010-2013) of being the only automaker with 2013 IIHS Top Safety Pick for all models.

IIHS small overlap test results for small SUVs.
