Four Subaru models earn a Best Family Car award by Parents magazine!
Subaru of America, Inc. announced that the 2020 Ascent, Crosstrek Hybrid, Forester and Legacy models have managed to earn a top spot on Parents 20 Best Family Cars of 2020 list. This prestigious recognition is based on NHTSA crash-test results, along with the magazine's own evaluations form a certified child passenger safety technician and road tester. In order to be present in the list, a vehicle should have already received a 5-star overall safety rating from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.
Parents team has also relied on Abbie Patterson's aid, a certified child passenger safety technician, owner of consulting company Super Car Seat Geek. Patterson and his fellow teammates have tested the installations of the infant-sized seats, convertible seats, harnessed booster, backless booster, and numerous more features and mechanisms in order to ensure that everything that has undergone their supervision is of top-notch quality. The vehicles have also undergone braking, steering, acceleration and user tech capability test as well.
With safety as a top priority, the four models, Ascent, Crosstrek Hybrid, Forester and Legacy, come with Subaru EyeSight Diver Assist Technology as a standard feature. This suite includes Automatic Pre-Collision Braking and Throttle Management, Adaptive Cruise Control and Lane Departure with Sway Warning. Sweet!
