The 2011 Subaru Legacy continues a long tradition of strong safety ratings and occupant protection—with an excellent set of features to match—but the Legacy no longer has top marks in all crash tests.

In insurance-supported IIHS tests, the 2011 Legacy has earned top 'good' ratings in all categories, including frontal, side, and rear impact tests, as well as the new roof-strength (rollover) test; and it's earned the Top Safety Pick accolade from the IIHS.

Meanwhile, the federal government has restructured its testing program this year, and in the revised tests the Legacy earned good, but not excellent, ratings—with four stars overall, as well as in frontal and side tests and the new side pole test.

Across the model line, front side airbags, side-curtain bags, electronic stability control, and anti-lock brakes with brake assist are all standard. All models also include an electronic parking brake with an electronically operated Hill Holder System that aids safe, smooth starts either facing up or down on steep inclines. It can also be argued that in some situations Subaru's road-savvy all-wheel drive system can aid safety and security as well.

Conclusion

The 2011 Subaru Legacy is strong on safety and security, though its crash-test scores are no longer perfect.

How does the
TCC Rating work?
The TCC Rating is a clear numeric rating value based on a 10-point scale that reflects the overall opinion of our automotive experts on any vehicle and rolls up ratings we give each vehicle across sub-categories you care about like performance, safety, styling and more.

Our rating also has simple color-coded “Stop” (red), “Caution” (orange),
or “Go” (green) messages along with the numerical score so you can easily understand where we stand at a glance.

Our automotive experts then also collect and show you what other websites say about these different aspects of any vehicle. We do this leg work for you to simplify your research process.
