I agree...buuuuut...the Crosstrek has a stronger body. Plus that ride height, I would think, would make it better. Do you want to be real low when you get T-boned by that bigger car, or higher? I am sure common sense was used in their decision a bit instead of spending the money to conduct all the same tests.
