2010 IIHS Top Safety Picks


Recommended Posts

The Legacy, Outback, Impreza (except WRX), Forester and Tribeca are all on the IIHS's Top Safety Picks for 2010.

Subaru is the only manufacturer with a winner in all 4 vehicle classes in which it competes. This automaker earns 5 awards for 2010.
This year's testing also includes a roof crush test, which means some models from last year's list are no longer in the list.
