Post Subaru Impreza Is Top-Rated Small Car in Insurance Institute Crash Tests

Saludos muchachos:
Les incluyo una informacion que me facilitaron referente a la seguridad del Impreza 02+. Sientanse seguros en sus carros, pero no quieran validar los resultados

CHERRY HILL, N.J., March 20 /PRNewswire/ -- Subaru of America,
Inc. (SOA), announced today that the 2002 Subaru Impreza achieved the highest rating
(good) in the most recent series of frontal offset crash tests
performed by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety. The Impreza also
earned the
Institute's coveted "Best Pick" designation.

"The occupant compartment of the Subaru Impreza maintained its shape extremely well in the offset test, and the dummy's movement was well
controlled. All measures recorded on the dummy indicated low
risk of injury," said Institute President Brian O'Neill. "This was a
very good

Vehicle ratings reflect performance in 40-mph frontal offset
crash tests into a deformable barrier. Based on the results, the Institute evaluates the
crashworthiness of passenger vehicles, assigning each vehicle
a rating from
good overall to poor. The Institute's frontal offset test is
demanding of the vehicle's structure, as a relatively small
area of the
vehicle's front-end structure must manage the crash energy.

"Safety is a primary tenet of the Subaru brand," said T.K.
Saito, chairman,
president and CEO, Subaru of America, Inc. "We are very
pleased with the IIHS results, as they further reinforce our commitment to
occupant safety.
All Subaru vehicles -- including Legacy, Forester and Impreza -
- have
received the Institute's highest rating. In addition to
providing superior occupant protection in the event of a collision, Subaru
vehicles not only provide protection in the event of a collision, but our Subaru
Drive system provides drivers with superior traction and
control to help
avoid accidents."

The 2002 Impreza lineup includes the 2.5 RS sedan, WRX sedan
and Sport Wagon, Outback Sport and 2.5 TS Sport Wagon. Since its introduction,
the 2002
Impreza WRX has garnered numerous industry awards, including
Magazine's "Automobile of the Year" for 2002 and was selected
as one of Car
and Driver magazine's "10 Best" cars for 2002.
