Subaru Forester Awarded 5-Star Crash Safety Rating

August 15, 2007

Subaru of America, Inc recently announced that the 2008 Subaru Forester will have the highest rating in the U.S. Department of Transportation’s National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) New Car Assessment Program (NCAP) crash tests. The vehicle received five stars in both the frontal and side-impact crash tests for both the driver and passenger seating positions. NHTSA’s New Car Assessment Program (NCAP) provides consumers with vehicle safety information, primarily front and side crash test results, and more recently rollover ratings, to aid consumers in their vehicle purchase decisions. The test results are relayed to consumers via an easily recognizable star rating system – from 1 to 5 stars, with 5 being the highest. The NCAP crash tests are conducted at speeds higher than required by the Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standards for both side impacts, at 38.5 miles per hour, and full frontal barrier impacts, at 35 miles per hour.
