2009 Subaru Forester Earns Top Safety Pick Nod


The redesigned Subaru Forester received the Top Safety Pick award from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety today. To earn the Top Safety Pick, vehicles must rank “good” — the institute’s top crash rating in front, side and rear impacts. They also must be equipped with stability control.

There are a total of 37 Top Safety Picks. 20 are SUVs, but only two other small SUVs — the Honda CR-V and Honda Element — rank that high. Cars.com’s Kelsey Mays recently reviewed the new Forester and came away impressed.
