Top Safety Pick

Not yet rated

The 2013 Subaru XV Crosstrek is based on the Impreza hatchback, yet with a number of improvements to the body structure--in addition to its nearly four-inch-higher ride height, we can't extend the Impreza's excellent crash-test ratings and impressive record to this new model.

However, the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) has awarded the XV Crosstrek its Top Safety Pick award, which means along with its standard stability control, the Crosstrek earns "good" ratings in front-, side-, and rear-impact tests, as well as roof-crush tests.

As a nod to the Crosstrek’s taller stance, Subaru added rollover sensors for the side-curtain bags (a feature the Impreza doesn’t get).

Outward visibility is far better than in most other crossover vehicles, thanks to a reasonably low beltline, relatively thin front pillars, and enough rear glass to give you a good wrap-around view.

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.
