2002 Impreza Achieves Institutes Best Pick
The 2002 Subaru Impreza achieved the highest rating in the most recent series of frontal offset crash tests performed by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS). The Impreza also earned the Institutes coveted Best Pick designation.
Vehicle ratings reflect performance in 40-mph frontal offset crash tests into a deformable barrier. Based on the results, the Institute evaluates the crashworthiness of passenger vehicles, assigning each vehicle a rating from good to poor. The Institutes frontal offset test is especially demanding of the vehicles structure, as a relatively small area of the vehicles front-end structure must manage the crash energy.
