Subaru Awarded Best Manufacturer for Safety Features
Subaru Awarded Best Manufacturer for Safety Features

For the second year running, Subaru has been voted Best Manufacturer for Safety Features in the 2020 Driver Power survey, the UK’s number one car ownership poll. In the overall rankings, Subaru placed 3rd in a fiercely competitive field of 30 manufacturers.

Subaru constantly strives to build cars that are Better Where It Matters. We’re known for blending innovative technology with engineering expertise to deliver vehicles that provide outstanding safety, capability and reliability – cars that give their drivers and passengers peace of mind at all times, in all road and weather conditions. We’re delighted that the hard work and our commitment to putting safety first has paid off.

Steve Fowler, Editor at Auto Express, said: “This year marks another exceptional performance for Subaru, as Driver Power respondents told us they’re happy with almost everything that relates to life with these cars. Owners find them immensely satisfying to drive, enjoy their fantastic interiors, and can rely on them day in, day out. Owners also say no other car maker offers better safety systems. Given these results, it’s easy to see why Subaru owners tend to be a loyal lot.”

Chris Graham, Managing Director at Subaru UK, commented: “The results of this industry-leading survey clearly show that owners appreciate the importance of being able to choose and drive a car that’s built to be Better Where It Matters – and nothing matters more than safety. We’re delighted that Subaru owners recognise our on-going commitment to build the safest cars on the road today, as well as praising the outstanding capability, practicality and reliability that our vehicles offer. We are immensely proud to be placed 3rd out of 30 manufacturers and will continue to work tirelessly to deliver against – and exceed – owners’ expectations.”

All three Subaru SUVs hold the maximum 5-star Euro NCAP safety rating and are fitted with a host of safety features, including EyeSight driver assistance, as standard. Subaru’s exceptional safety credentials have been recognised with several notable awards in recent months.

Subaru’s brand-new Driver Monitoring System won the Technology Award at the 2020 What Car? Awards and was described as 'the most advanced of its kind', proving to be more accurate than other manufacturer systems at identifying when concentration was lost.   Forester e-BOXER was named ‘Best in Class 2019 in the Small Off-Road/MPV Class’ in the Euro NCAP 2019 safety performance test, achieving outstanding scores in all four assessment areas and registering the highest score ever (91%) in its class for Child Occupant Protection. Forester was also awarded 4x4 Magazine’s ‘Best Small SUV of the Year 2020’, impressing judges with its comprehensive range of safety technologies, on-road driveability and outstanding off-road capabilities.
