The Subaru Outback was awarded the most outstanding possible safety score out of all vehicles evaluated by the Euro NCAP 2020-2021. In addition, the Subaru Outback has accomplished the same achievement in Japan and has been given the Best Award 2021 by the Japan New Car Assessment Program (JNCAP).
Today, Subaru Corporation announced that the Outback had won the Best Award 2021 in the Japan New Car Assessment Program (JNCAP), Japan's version of the European New Car Assessment Program (Euro NCAP).
The Ministry of Land, Infrastructure, Transport, and Tourism (MLIT) and the National Agency for Vehicle Safety and Victim Assistance are responsible for putting JNCAP into action (NASVA).
The Best Award has been bestowed upon Subaru for the second year running, making this accomplishment a two-year streak. The year before, Levorg was honored to have the most successful outcome in 2020.
Cars that have been given an A-rating for both their crash protection and preventative safety performance will be eligible for the JNCAP 2021 Five Star Honor. This award will be offered to vehicles equipped with an automated emergency call system for accidents.
The Subaru Global Platform and an internal frame structure provide the Outback with improved resistance to damage in the event of a collision. This is made possible by the Outback's construction. Compared to the Outback of the previous generation, this model has increased torsional stiffness and impact force damping thanks to this feature. In addition to this, it is equipped with a secondary crash protection mechanism, which works to lessen the likelihood of harm to the passengers in the driver and passenger's car and the occupants of the vehicle involved in the collision with the Outback. Furthermore, eight-passenger airbags are included as standard equipment. Furthermore, in Japan, all vehicles come equipped with a pedestrian protection airbag as standard. This airbag is designed to absorb some of the force that would otherwise be transferred to the pedestrian in an accident.
All versions of the Outback come standard with the newest iteration of EyeSight, which has a broader viewing angle than its predecessor and is designed to improve the vehicle's ability to avoid accidents. It is also the recently installed electric brake amplifier that offers automated braking assistance to lessen the likelihood of being involved in an accident in various traffic scenarios.
Subaru will continue to improve the safety of its products by utilizing its primary, active, passive, preventative, and connected safety technologies. This is part of the company's larger mission to "bring enjoyment to all." These five elements form Subaru's holistic vision of road safety. In addition, the company adheres to the notion that all drivers and passengers, including those riding as passengers, must have a distinct impression that they are safe when driving a vehicle. By making these efforts, our goal is to eliminate all fatal motor vehicle accidents by 2030.
