As I would expect from a newly designed car. Good to see Subaru is keeping safety in mind.

I think what was significant here was that the Leg (Lib) also picked up 5 stars without the side seat and curtain bags.

I believe that this is a first for any manufacturer.

And those side impact #s are on V4.0 of the test, which I guess is why that sled looks awfully large!

Do I understand correctly that these results are actually from tests performed in Japan per European NCAP test standards?

"Some vehicles were tested by overseas NCAP programs. "

In this case, the Liberty/Legacy tests were done in Japan.

However they are listed as "ANCAP" test results.

I assume they were done by OSA:
http://www.crashtest.com/explanations/osa/ie.htm

As far as the standards, I'm not sure. I thought there was an effort by countries to standardize their NCAP tests, but it appears there are some differences.

Read here:
http://www1.tpgi.com.au/users/mpaine/ncaplist.html

Here are some other snippets:

"In Nov 1999 Australian NCAP started testing and assessing vehicles according to EuroNCAP Assessment Protocol The EuroNCAP rating includes a score for side impact which may disguise a poor offset result. Check the frontal/offset crash test score on the linked page for offset performance.
Risk of life-threatening injury is sometimes indicated by a "struck through star", shown as a + in the table (**+) The JNCAP rating is based on full frontal, offset and 55km/h side impact tests. JNCAP ratings are out of 6 stars. For the following table 4 and 5 JNCAP stars are treated as 4 stars.

Prior to Nov 1999 ANCAP rating criteria included full frontal tests and might differ from those used by IIHS and Euro-NCAP , which are shown below. The ratings are:

[*****/Excellent][****/Good[**/Marginal][*/Poor]

From March 2000 ENCAP includes an optional pole test in the rating - indicated by "+head airbag" for Airbags.
With a good pole test result it is now possible to earn 5 stars "
