SUBARU AWARDED BEST MANUFACTURER FOR SAFETY FEATURES BY DRIVER POWER
SUBARU AWARDED BEST MANUFACTURER FOR SAFETY FEATURES BY DRIVER POWER

Subaru has been voted Best Manufacturer for Safety Features in the 2019 Driver Power Survey, the UK’s number one car ownership survey – beating off stiff competition from 29 other manufacturers to take the no.1 spot.

Safety has always been central to the development of Subaru cars and we’re delighted that our on-going commitment to safety has been recognised by Subaru owners in the UK.

We’ve been crash-testing our vehicles since the early 1960s, long before industry-wide testing was introduced, and all Subaru SUVs (plus Impreza and Levorg) hold the maximum 5-star Euro NCAP safety rating. Subaru cars are fitted with a host of innovative safety technologies as standard and we remain committed to the welfare of all road users, recently announcing our vision to eliminate traffic accident deaths involving Subaru vehicles by 2030.

Subaru UK Managing Director Chris Graham commented on the win: “We are delighted that Subaru has been recognised for the quality of its safety systems by the people that matter most – Subaru owners. The accolade is testimony to Subaru’s on-going commitment to build the safest cars on the road today, with our latest safety technology fitted as standard across the SUV range.”

Steve Fowler, Auto Express editor-in-chief said: “Subaru has long been known as a maker of tough, well-built, all-wheel drive models. More recently, Subaru has placed its EyeSight system at the heart of its model range. The feature is a well-judged package of safety systems powered by a pair of cameras to scan the road ahead. This year, owners have consistently praised Subaru’s safety credentials in our Driver Power survey, placing the manufacturer ahead of some far-larger manufacturers.”
