Used Car Safety Report

The Subaru XV has been awarded a 4 star Driver Protection rating in the latest Used Car Safety Rating (UCSR) report. UCSR are reported annually by the Monash University Accident Research Centre (MUARC). Ratings are estimated from data on real crashes reported to police in Australia and New Zealand and provide a very high level of confidence. The UCSR report classifies cars according to where their rating lies in relation to a best performance benchmark. The Driver Protection rating measures the relative safety of cars in preventing serious injury to their own drivers in crashes.

The Subaru XV also received a protection for other road users rating in the UCSR report. The protection for other road users rating indicates the level of protection that a vehicle provides for other unprotected road users (other car drivers, pedestrians, bicyclists or motorcyclists) in the event of a crash.
