Tokyo, November 29, 2017 – Subaru Corporation today announced that the Subaru XV and Impreza models (European specs.) have won the highest five-star overall rating in the 2017 European New Car Assessment Programme (Euro NCAP) *1 safety performance test. The Euro NCAP evaluates “Adult Occupant Protection”, “Child Occupant Protection”, “Pedestrian Protection” and “Safety Assist”. Starting with the 2016 safety performance assessment, a test that checks how well vehicles autonomously detect and prevent collisions with pedestrians has been introduced. EyeSight*2-equipped Impreza and Subaru XV capable of detecting pedestrians showed good performance in the new test. This is the sixth time that Subaru has been honored with the prestigious five star rating from Euro NCAP following the 2009 rating for the Legacy, 2011 rating for the Subaru XV, 2012 rating for the Forester, 2014 rating for the Outback, and 2016 rating for the Levorg.
