The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) rates the 2009 Impreza “good” in front crash-test protection. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) gives the Impreza a perfect five-star rating from front and driver side impact protection and four stars in all other categories. Impreza hatchbacks score top five stars for frontal impact and four- and five-star results in side impact from NHTSA, plus top "good" results from the IIHS for both front and rear impact.

According to Automotive.com, "ABS on these cars is among the most sophisticated available." Cars.com adds, "standard side-impact torso airbags for the front occupants, plus curtain airbags that cover the side windows completely, are standard and contribute to the model's good scores." Stability control is available with a Premium package. Electronic stability control and incline start assist are included in the Outback Sport or with the Premium Package but not otherwise available on the 2.5i wagon.

Cars.com says that all 2009 Subaru Imprezas "include an impressive array of safety features"; for example, "six airbags and active head restraints are standard." MyRide.com assures potential buyers that "seeing out of the Impreza's big, airy greenhouse is easy enough, with no particularly bad blind spots to speak of...mirrors are well sized for the car both inside and out, and the view to the side and front is also very good."

Conclusion

The 2009 Subaru Impreza employs many safety features and may be one of the safest compact cars on the road.

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.
