Top Safety Pick

Five stars Overall Four stars, frontal; five stars, side; four stars rollover

The 2014 Subaru XV Crosstrek is fundamentally an Impreza hatchback, with some reinforcements to suspension and body structure, plus a ride height almost 4 inches taller than the Impreza it's based on.

The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) deems the 2014 XV Crosstrek a Top Safety Pick, awarding it the top rating of "good" in every test it conducted, including both small- and moderate-overlap front crash, plus side- and rear-impact testing, as well as roof crush. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) has given the XV Crosstrek four stars for frontal crash and rollover safety, on the other hand, but it earns five stars (the highest rating) for side impact, and in the Overall rating.

Outward visibility from inside the XV Crosstrek is much better than in most other crossover vehicles, due to its reasonably low beltline, relatively thin pillars front and rear, and enough rear and rear-side glass to give you a wrap-around view. Subaru has also added rollover sensors for the side-curtain bags to all Crosstreks; that's a feature the Impreza doesn’t get.

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.
