The 2019 Subaru Crosstrek Hybrid may be known for its fuel efficiency and adventure-ready features, but it was recently applauded for another essential characteristic: its safety level. This new Subaru wagon received the Top Safety Pick+ award from the IIHS.
The IIHS rates vehicles based on crash tests performed by an insurance-industry funded safety group. The Top Safety Pick+ designation is given to those that snag the top ratings overall.
Specifically, they must receive “Good” ratings in each crash test as well as an “Advanced” or “Superior” rating for its front-crash prevention system. The Crosstrek specifically received the “Superior” rating for stopping crashes at 12 and 25 mph.
