The all-new 2014 Subaru Forester has received a Top Safety Pick+ award from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS). The Forester is the only one of two vehicles out of 13 small SUVs to earn an overall rating of good in the test. The other model to earn the rating was the 2013 Mitsubishi Outlander Sport.
“With the redesigned Forester, Subaru’s engineers set out to do well in our new test, and they succeeded,” says Joe Nolan, the Institute’s vice president for vehicle research. “This is exactly how we hoped manufacturers would respond to improve protection for people in these kinds of serious frontal crashes.”
“Safety is one of our brand tenets and so we are extremely proud to have earned a TSP+ rating for Forester and a third Top Safety Pick + rating for our brand,” said Thomas J. Doll, president and chief operating officer, Subaru of America, Inc. “The Forester is the most award winning small SUV in America and now we have another designation for this venerable vehicle.”
