The European New Car Assessment Programme (Euro NCAP) has awarded the new Subaru Outback (2.0D 'EyeSight', LHD, European specifications) with the highest five-star rating for its 2014 overall safety performance test. According to the European unit of Fuji Heavy Industries Ltd., Subaru Europe, new Outback managed to receive high scores in all four key areas: adult occupant protection (85%); child occupant protection (87%); pedestrian protection (70%); and safety assist.

The Outback also scored maximum points in the side impact barrier test, with good protection of all critical body areas. Subaru Europe also disclosed the Euro NCAP tests on the front seats and head restraints as well as a geometric assessment of the rear restraints indicated good protection against whiplash injuries on rear-end collision.

The Outback also managed to score max points for its protection of the 18-month dummy in the dynamic crash tests. Likewise, the bumper of the Outback was found to be able to provide good protection to pedestrians' legs in all tested areas.

The new Subaru Outback for Europe features the Subaru's 'EyeSight' autonomous braking system that uses advanced stereo cameras and integrates a number of driver assist technologies.

The vehicle also has multiple airbags including in the front, knee, side and curtain. Coming as standards on the Outback is Subaru’s VDC (Vehicle Dynamics Control).

To make the Outback much safer, Subaru increased the use of high tensile steel plates in addition to bringing in advancements in its “ring-shaped reinforcement frame body.”
