Subaru has carved out a nice little niche for itself by heavily marketing the safety credentials of its vehicles, and the 2010 Subaru Legacy carries on the Subaru tradition of safe, family-friendly sedans.

Neither NHTSA nor the IIHS has begun crash-testing 2010 models, but Subaru officials tell TheCarConnection.com that they expect the Subaru Legacy to earn perfect five-star impact ratings from NHTSA, as well as the IIHS’s highest impact rating, "good,” once the 2010 Subaru Legacy is tested. Based on the Subaru Legacy’s previous performances in similar crash tests, those targets seem quite reasonable. Furthermore, JDPower.com reports the 2010 Subaru Legacy features a redesigned frame that includes “a new engine cradle design [that] improves front-impact safety,” while the entire vehicle “features greater use of high-strength steel.” Stay tuned to TheCarConnection.com for the latest safety updates on the Subaru Legacy 2010 lineup.

All vehicles in the Subaru Legacy 2010 lineup come loaded with a bevy of safety features, the best known of which is Subaru’s standard Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive, which provides increased security in inclement weather. In addition to standard electronic stability control and anti-lock brakes, Cars.com notes that the 2010 Subaru Legacy’s other standard safety features include “six airbags,” as well as seats that “use a whiplash-mitigating design.”

Conclusion

The 2010 Subaru Legacy offers all the expected safety features, including stability control on the base model; top crash-test results are anticipated.

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.
