The Subaru Crosstrek and WRX have both earned IIHS Top Safety Pick+ awards.
Both models have been redesigned for the 2018 model year, and both qualify for the top award from IIHS when equipped with optional front crash prevention and specific headlights. In addition to earning good crashworthiness ratings across the board, the Crosstrek’s optional front crash prevention earns a superior rating. In IIHS track tests at 12 mph and 25 mph, a Crosstrek equipped with Subaru’s EyeSight system avoided collisions. It also has a forward collision warning system that meets NHTSA criteria.
