Structure-Head/neck-Chest-Leg left-Leg right-Restraints
The Subaru Impreza, not including the WRX performance models, was redesigned for the 2012 model year. Moderate offset frontal ratings are assigned by the Institute based on a test conducted by Subaru as part of frontal crash test verification. The frontal ratings also apply to the wagon (5-door) version of the Impreza and to the XV Crosstrek, a wagon with increased ground clearance that was introduced in the 2013 model year.
Restraints/dummy kinematics — Dummy movement was well controlled. The driver side curtain and side torso airbags deployed during the crash. After the dummy moved forward into the frontal airbag, it rebounded into the seat without its head coming close to any stiff structure that could cause injury.
Injury measures — Measures taken from the dummy indicate a low risk of any significant injuries in a crash of this severity.
