The new Subaru XV has been awarded the maximum five star safety rating in the latest Euro NCAP safety performance tests. The latest crossover vehicle from the Japanese All-Wheel-Drive specialists scored particularly highly in the occupant protection category and was praised for its full complement of safety equipment.
VDC (Vehicle Dynamics Control) is installed in all models as standard. Its intervention timing was optimised and incorporates control logic that demonstrates effectiveness in danger avoidance situations. A brake assist function is also incorporated into the VDC system. This provides the Subaru XV with world leading danger avoidance performance and increases driving confidence.
Euro NCAP’s safety performance test, the industry standard across the continent and one of the most rigorous programmes in the world has previously awarded the Subaru Impreza and Legacy/Outback with the five-star safety rating, but Subaru has further enhanced occupant safety in its latest model.
