7 Cars That Rocked the New Frontal Collision Test
Automakers and manufacturers are still getting used to the newly introduced small overlap test that the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety has initiated, but that hasn’t kept the agency from implementing new tests since then. Recently, cars that were equipped with collision avoidance systems were put through their paces at the IIHS’s test facility. The following video explains the IIHS’s procedure for the trials and also offers a little insight into why these systems are important.
That being said, here are the seven vehicles that won “Superior” marks in the new IIHS initiative.
Subaru has long had a reputation for endurance and capability, and safety is another standout factor for the niche carmaker. The Legacy, which uses Subaru’s EyeSight frontal collision avoidance system, scored the highest marks on the test, accumulating 5 autobrake total points: 2 points at 12 miles per hour and 3 points at 25 miles per hour.
