The Subaru XV has been awarded the highest rating – 5 stars – in the European New Car Assessment Programme (EuroNCAP) for its overall safety performance for 2012.

This is the XV’s second honour from the prestigious, Brussels-based, EuroNCAP. The 5-star rating was also awarded to the crossover in 2011, reflecting the vehicle’s performance against Euro NCAP’s comprehensive and rigorous assessment programme which evaluates “Adult Occupant Protection”, “Child Occupant Protection”, “Pedestrian Protection” and “Safety Assist”.

Subaru further advanced its unique “ring-shaped reinforcement frame body” in the Subaru XV by optimizing the impact energy relay structure. The use of high tensile steel was also increased. These features allow reduction in weight and higher collision safety performance to impacts from all directions, and enhanced passenger safety.

In addition, airbags have been installed in the front seats, driver’s knee, and sides (torso and curtain). The new features are enhanced with VDC (Vehicle Dynamics Control) provided as standard on all models, making the XV an extremely safe car.

The Subaru XV, which was launched in the Singapore market in December last year has received outstanding reviews for its safety performance, SUV functionality and stylish design.
