Jackson Subaru Dealer Announces Subaru’s Sweep of the 2010 IIHS Safety Rankings
Jackson Subaru dealer, Paul Moak Subaru, is pleased to share the latest achievement for the 2010 Subaru lineup. The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) recently announced its 2010 Top Safety Picks for various vehicle categories. Subaru is the only manufacturer to have a Top Safety Pick winner in every vehicle class in which it competes.
Paul Moak Subaru is Mississippi’s exclusive Subaru dealer and has enjoyed the benefits of selling an award winning line-up of vehicles. No matter which Subaru model interests a customer, he or she can be confident that Subaru provides the highest possible level of safety based on tests conducted by the IIHS.
The Top Safety Picks awarded by the IIHS are based upon crashworthiness — how well a vehicle protects its occupants in a crash. The Institute rates vehicles good, acceptable, marginal, or poor based on performance in high-speed front and side crash tests, a rollover test, plus evaluations of seat/head restraints for protection against neck injuries in rear impacts. To earn TOP SAFETY PICK for 2010 a vehicle must have good ratings in all four Institute tests. In addition, the winning vehicles must offer electronic stability control. The Subaru Impreza (except WRX), Forester, Legacy, Outback and Tribeca met these standards, and were awarded the IIHS “Top Safety Pick” designation.
This year, a roof strength requirement was added to the criteria for Top Safety Pick as a measure of the vehicle’s rollover protection. In order to earn a “Good” rating, the roof must be able to support 4 times the vehicle’s weight before reaching 5 inches of crush.
According to John Scarbrough, General Manager at Paul Moak Subaru, “Subaru continues to excel by meeting the practical and economical needs of consumers, while offering versatility, value and reliability like no other automaker can. Year after year Subaru continues to impress the industry with its outstanding safety awards and accolades. The recent 2010 Top Safety Picks by the IIHS come as no surprise for those of us in the Subaru family. Exceptional safety technology, AWD performance, ample cargo space and incredible fuel efficiency make each Subaru model a “top pick” for family transportation.”
Paul Moak Subaru has ensured the largest selection of Subaru Legacy, Outback, Forester, Impreza, and Tribeca vehicles in stock for their Mississippi customers.
