Subaru Vehicles Take Home Highest NHTSA Ratings

By James Russel

So as to assist customers learn about the abilities of vehicles to keep passengers safe, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, or the NHTSA, has done crash tests through its New Car Assessment Program (NCAP). And the latest series of crash tests done proved to be quite a victory for the Subaru brand.

You see, two of the company's vehicles, the Subaru Legacy and the Subaru Outback, both received the NHTSA's highest ratings which are equal to five stars. The Legacy and the Outback received such ratings for the frontal impact crash tests and for the side impact crash tests.

Thomas J. Doll, the executive vice president of the Subaru of America, Inc., is quite pleased to know of such results. He even boasts, "Subaru customers have come to expect the highest level of safety in their vehicles. Both the Legacy and Outback continue to deliver the highest levels of active and passive safety as evidenced by their recent five star performances in the NHTSA NCAP tests."

According to Subaru, so as to make their vehicles quite safe for passengers, there is more than just a blend of the right Hypertech programmer parts and Subaru crafted odds and ends. The company says that they have been designing vehicles with the thought and idea that a vehicle that is meant for active safety is that same vehicle that allows the driver to gain a sense of control and stability over the machine. And with that kind of thinking at hand while creating their vehicles, the company has been able to come up with really safe units.

The company has also made sure that they would have been able to create the best types of safety systems and features that would keep Subaru passengers in their seats and not out of them. There are also passive safety systems like the engine which has been specially designed so that it would not interfere with the safety of the passengers in cases of crashes.

But there are just a few of the safety things found in the vehicles. If you are interested in knowing more about them, you can go at the car maker's official site and learn more about the specifications.
