The Crossover Climb Challenge | Rimrock Subaru

Recently, an independent testing organization, the USAC, put unmodified, factory-spec, all-wheel-drive vehicles from various manufacturers through a very difficult test – climbing and descending a slippery, steep, low traction ramp, to simulate a slick or ice covered hill. See if Subaru Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive is up for the challenge in this entertaining video.

Also, check out this video, where instructors investigate the safety of the AWD systems of the top Crossovers on the road today, at the Emergency Vehicle Operations Center, which teaches police, firefighters, and other first-responders how to deal with the toughest road conditions imaginable.

2014 Subaru Forester is an IIHS TOP SAFETY PICK

Subaru remains the only manufacturer with IIHS Top Safety Picks for all models for the fourth consecutive year (2010-2013)

MISSISSAUGA, ON, March 6, 2013 /CNW/ – Subaru Canada, Inc. is pleased to announce that the completely redesigned 2014 Forester has earned the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety’s (IIHS) top award for good performance in its moderate overlap frontal, side, rollover and rear impact evaluations. This distinction has helped Subaru become the only automaker to earn a 2013 TOP SAFETY PICK for every model it builds.

“Safety is always top of mind as we aim to inspire confidence and peace of mind on every road in all conditions,” said Shiro Ohta, president and CEO of Subaru Canada, Inc. “Subaru’s ring-shaped reinforcement frame has been proven in more than a decade of use. This design provides excellent protection with the structure increasing cabin rigidity and absorbing impact energy from any direction.”

TOP SAFETY PICK recognizes vehicles that, in IIHS testing, do the best job of protecting people in front, side, rear, and now rollover crashes based on ‘good’ ratings in each category. The IIHS ranks in terms of Good, Acceptable, Marginal and Poor, with ‘good’ as the top rank possible in Institute tests. Winners also must have electronic stability control.

“For four consecutive years, Subaru is the only automotive manufacturer with the distinction of earning IIHS TOP SAFETY PICK awards for every model it builds,” said Institute president Adrian Lund. “Subaru deserves praise for making safety a top priority.”

About IIHS To qualify for a TOP SAFETY PICK, vehicles must have good ratings for occupant protection in the moderate overlap frontal, side impact, rollover and rear tests. IIHS rates vehicles as good, acceptable, marginal or poor based on performance. The Institute’s frontal crashworthiness evaluations are based on results of a 40 mph moderate overlap frontal crash. Side evaluations are based on performance in a crash test in which the side of a vehicle is struck by a barrier moving at 31 mph. The barrier represents the front end of a pickup or SUV. Rear crash protection is rated according to a two-step procedure. Starting points for the ratings are measurements of head restraint geometry – the height of a restraint and its horizontal distance behind the back of an average-size man. In the roof strength test, a metal plate is pushed against one side of a roof at a displacement rate of 0.2 inch per second. To earn a good rating for rollover protection, the roof must withstand a force of four times the vehicle’s weight before reaching five inches of crush. This is called a strength-to-weight ratio.
