2018 Subaru Outback Crash Test & Rating – Video
The Subaru Legacy was redesigned for the 2015 model year. The small overlap frontal crash test ratings also apply to the station wagon version of the Legacy, known as the Outback, also redesigned for 2015.
The driver space was maintained well, with maximum intrusion of the lower interior of 9 cm at the lower hinge pillar. Upper interior intrusion measured 5-6 cm at the hinge pillar and instrument panel.
Measures taken from the dummy indicate a low risk of any significant injuries in a crash of this severity.
Restraints and dummy kinematics
The dummy’s movement was well controlled. The dummy’s head loaded the frontal airbag, which stayed in front of the dummy until rebound. The side curtain airbag deployed and has sufficient forward coverage to protect the head from contact with side structure and outside objects.
