Article by Christian A., on August 29, 2010

The 2010 Subaru Legacy gets more recognition as after getting the Grand Prix 09/10 award in Japan's New Car Assessment Programme (JNCAP), it gets officially named as Japan's safest car.

Subaru has really been in a roll the past three years since this is the third Subaru car that has taken top honors. Impreza was awarded in 2007 and the Forester in 2008.

There were 17 vehicles tested but only the Subaru Legacy was able to receive the honor for 2009. During the collision safety performance tests for driver and front passenger, the Legacy got the rating as the safest passenger car.

In the pedestrian head protection test, the Legacy did so well as to get the highest rating. In addition, the Legacy was given the top five-star rating in the European New Car Assessment Programme (Euro NCAP).

Five stars were given to it for occupant safety in the latest Australasian New Car Assessment Programme (ANCAP), and it was recognized as the 2010 Top Safety Pick by the Insurance Institute of Highway Safety (IIHS) in the US.

Subaru didn't scrimp when it came to safety as the car is fitted with side airbags, front and rear head curtain airbags and front seat-mounted torso airbags, as well as with ESP, ABS and rollover sensor.
