Not only are they supremely tunable, but the wicked-hot ’13 Subaru BRZ and Scion FR-S are also award-winning safe. The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) has recognized the dynamic duo as a ’12 Top Safety Pick. They have earned a “good” rating—the IIHS’ top rank—in the moderate overlap frontal, side, rollover, and rear impact evaluations.

Subaru is the only automaker to earn Top Safety Picks for its entire lineup.

The Top Safety Pick recognizes vehicles that, in IIHS testing, do the best job of protecting people in front, side, rear, and now rollover crashes based on “good” ratings in each category. The IIHS ranks in terms of Good, Acceptable, Marginal, and Poor, with good being the top rank possible in Institute tests. Winners also must have electronic stability control. Subaru is the only automaker to earn Top Safety Picks for its entire lineup.

“With BRZ, Subaru has brought back the affordable sports car, and FHI engineering in the product has led not only to great driving fun but also top safety marks,” said Thomas J. Doll, executive vice president and COO, Subaru of America Inc. “We are passionate and uncompromising in our commitment to safety. Subaru is thrilled to continue as an industry leader in this area.”
