Two Subarus Recognized for Safety Features
Nov. 25, 2019—The redesigned 2020 Subaru Legacy and Outback both earn safety awards from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety.
Both the Legacy and the Outback earn good ratings in all six of the Institute's crashworthiness evaluations and come standard with Subaru's EyeSight crash avoidance system.
Each model earns a superior rating for vehicle-to-vehicle front crash prevention, avoiding collisions in 12 and 25 mph track tests. They have also been evaluated for pedestrian crash prevention, earning a superior rating, though that test isn't part of the 2019 awards criteria.
The 2020 Legacy earns a TOP SAFETY PICK+ award when equipped with curve-adaptive headlights. Its base headlights earn an acceptable rating.
