When a new model hits the market is supposed to do it according to the best standards of safety. Therefore, and regardless of what brands communicate to their customers, there are organisms that undergo these new models to the most demanding tests of shock and security. El Insurance Institute for Highway Safety or better known as IISH is the most important body of the United States as to check the safety of cars that are sold in the country, and now they have passed through his hands several new models.
The most important of the list has been the latest generation of Subaru Impreza. The fifth generation of the compact Japanese has managed to get the more high notes that the IIHS imposes security. Thanks to its modern modular platform and that is made of ultra high strength steels has been able to obtain the highest note given this important body. In addition, since the firm reported that generations of their models used the same platform so it should be much safer than the current ones.
The crash test that the Subaru Impreza has been tested are divided into five different tests. In all of them, it has managed to get the highest score (called as good). One of the elements that has helped the Japanese model get this note is the EyeSight system of autonomous emergency braking. The reason is that it has managed to avoid collisions at speeds of 19 and 40 kilometres per hour, making this outstanding rating. Another aspect that has been praise of the Impreza are led headlights (the halogens of life have been evaluated as poor).
Finally, and is a very important recognition, because it is the first model in the history of the IIHS in obtaining the best score in all the evidence submitted. In addition, even using the seats for children continues to maintain the same level of security. All that has earned it the highest recognition Top Safety Pick +.
We are looking forward to reach Europe and pass by the tests performed to EuroNCAP. Surely beat them with better grades than the from the IIHS.
