2014 Subaru Forester Earns IIHS 2013 Top Safety Pick-Plus Rating

May 30, 2013

Subaru of America recently announced that the all-new 2014 Forester has received a Top Safety Pick-Plus (TSP+) award from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS). The 2014 Subaru Forester is the first vehicle to ace the Institute’s small overlap frontal crash test. In fact, the Forester is the only one of 13 small SUVs to earn an overall rating of good in the test.

The award requires a “good” or “acceptable” rating in the Institute’s small overlap frontal crash test as well as meeting the base “TSP” award criteria.

“With the redesigned Forester, Subaru’s engineers set out to do well in our new test, and they succeeded,” says Joe Nolan, IIHS vice president for vehicle research. “This is exactly how we hoped manufacturers would respond to improve protection for people in these kinds of serious frontal crashes.”

Subaru is the only manufacturer with 2013 IIHS Top Safety Pick for all models. And the 2014 Forester is the third Subaru vehicle to earn the TSP+ award - the 2013 Subaru Legacy and Subaru Outback were awarded the 2013 TSP+ designation in late 2012.

"Safety is one of our brand tenets, and so we are extremely proud to have earned a TSP+ rating for Forester and a third Top Safety Pick+ rating for our brand," said Thomas J. Doll, president and chief operating officer, Subaru of America, Inc.
