Subaru Plug-in Hybrid Earns Safety Honor
July 19, 2019—The 2019 Subaru Crosstrek Hybrid recently earned the TOP SAFETY PICK+ award from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety. Subaru now has nine models that have earned a 2019 TOP SAFETY PICK+ award.
The Crosstrek Hybrid, a plug-in hybrid version of the Crosstrek wagon, was introduced in the 2019 model year. It earns good ratings in all six IIHS crashworthiness evaluations, including the driver-side small overlap front, passenger-side small overlap front, moderate overlap front, side, roof strength and head restraint tests.
The Crosstrek Hybrid's only available headlights, curve-adaptive LED projectors with high-beam assist, earn a good rating in IIHS tests.
In front crash prevention track tests, the Crosstrek Hybrid's standard system dodged collisions at 12 and 25 mph, earning the small car a superior rating for front crash prevention.
