Safety is one of Subaru’s strong suits, and it’s one of the reasons why the brand’s customers are so loyal. No surprise that the 2010 Subaru Impreza scores top marks in independent crash tests and comes packed with the latest safety gear.

The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) rates the 2010 Subaru 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. The Impreza hatch also scores five stars for frontal impact and four- and five-star results in side impact from NHTSA, respectively. Additionally, the 2010 Subaru Impreza gets the highest rating of "good" from the IIHS for both front and rear impact.

Standard safety features on all Impreza models include anti-lock disc brakes, stability control, front-seat side airbags, side curtain airbags, and active front head restraints to help mitigate crash-induced whiplash. 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 hatch or sedan.

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."

Reviews read by TheCarConnection.com report that visibility in both the sedan and hatchback are positives. 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 2010 Subaru Impreza scores top marks when it comes to safety, so it’s no surprise that it's packed with a generous list of standard safety items.

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.
