Subaru for All Ages: Selecting the Safest Subarus

When it comes to your family car, safety and reliability is a priority. Thankfully, Subaru offers a variety of models for all ages that will keep your loved ones protected.  Read on if you are interested in selecting the safest Subarus for specific needs.  
What are the Safest Subarus for Teen Drivers?
For teenage drivers, parents want to seek out top safety features and dependability. These attributes are essential for new drivers who don’t have the experience or maturity to consistently exercise safe driving practices. With the right safety components and crash protection devices, you can give your teen drivers an advantage in case an accident occurs. One excellent option is the Impreza, which offers several safety feature to help keep your young drivers safe. The Impreza is available with blind spot protection and rear cross traffic alerts, both of which use radar seniors to audibly notify drivers when another vehicle is hiding in the car’s blind spot. Similarly, the Impreza offers a rear-vision camera to improve visibility behind the car while driving in reverse, and comes with parking guidelines to aid with maneuvering out of tight places. Additionally, reverse automatic braking will detect objects behind your car, and automatically apply the brakes to prevent collisions while backing up. 
If you’re looking for a larger car for your teen, the Forester is another great option for young drivers. Like the Impreza, the Forester is available with blind spot protection, rear vision camera, and reverse automatic braking. Additionally, Foresters are equipped with Vehicle Dynamics Control (VDC), which helps prevent skidding as drivers make turns. This technology monitors braking and steering, and identifies when the car begins to veer off on an unintended path. When this happen, the VDC systems will smartly apply brakes or reduce engine power to keep you and your car in the right direction.

Safety is at the Forefront for Subaru - What are the Overall Features of the Safest Subarus 
Another key safety feature available in both the Impreza and Forester is Subaru’s EyeSight driver assist technology. EyeSight monitors the flow of traffic while you drive, and warns you if you begin to drift into another lane of traffic. Additionally, EyeSight is capable of deploying emergency braking to avoid frontal collisions.  Subarus equipped with EyeSight received the top front-crash prevention rating by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety. 
Even with these top of the line safety features, accidents can still happen. Luckily, both the Impreza and Forester offer STARLINK In-Vehicle Technology for added safety and security if your young driver gets into a bit of trouble. When an accident occurs, STARLINK connects you with a customer care representative, who will take an active role in dispatching emergency responders. In emergency situations, drivers can use the SOS button to get assistance quickly. Customer care representatives are able to access your car’s location through its GPS system, and will be able to direct help right to the scene of the incident. STARLINK isn’t just for emergencies, however. The enhanced roadside assistance function is ideal for flat tires and other mechanical malfunctions that might otherwise leave your teen driver stranded on the side of the road.
What are the Safest Subarus for Growing Families
While Subarus like the Impreza and Forester are great options for young drivers, there are other options that are ideal for growing families as well. The latest model to the Subaru line-up is the all new Ascent. The first 3-row, family sized vehicle, this spacious car is perfect for everything from hauling kids to soccer practice, to weekend getaways together. The Ascent shares many of the same safety features available in the Impreza and Forester, but also offers Active Torque Vectoring (ATV). This feature is similar to the Forester’s Vehicle Dynamics Control technology, and gives Ascent drivers improved handling and control, especially around sharp turns. The result is increased agility, despite the vehicle’s larger size, and helps drivers avoid accidental oversteering and understeering as the car makes a turn. ATV technology is particularly helpful in poor weather conditions, and helps neutralize unpredictable elements and keep passengers as safe as possible.
