all-new, all-electric Subaru Solterra suv achieves 5-star ancap safety rating

Subaru Australia is pleased to confirm the brand’s first battery electric vehicle, the Subaru Solterra, has achieved a 5-star ANCAP safety rating.

This achievement is a continuation of Subaru Corporation's commitment to safety; one that is embedded in the brand’s DNA and overall design philosophy, underpinned by Subaru's unique Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive (AWD) system and advanced safety technologies with a range of cutting-edge future innovations.

Blair Read, Managing Director Subaru Australia, said: "At Subaru, safety is ingrained in our DNA; it always has been, and always will be, at the heart of everything that we do.

"As with all Subaru models, the Solterra features a host of Primary, Active, Preventative and Protective Safety features that help keep the driver and occupants safe on the road."

Subaru Corporation's most important safety vision yet, working towards zero fatal road accidents in a Subaru vehicle by the year 20301, is underpinned by the four vital safety pillars of Primary, Active, Preventative and Protective safety that work together to achieve Subaru’s 'All-Around' approach.

The Subaru Solterra is equipped with Subaru Safety Sense, a preventative safety system that provides, Pre-Collision System, Emergency Steering Assist, Emergency Driving Stop System, Lane Departure Alert, Dynamic Radar Cruise Control, Lane Tracing Assist, Low-speed Acceleration Suppression, Road Sign Assist and Speed Limiter.

Both Solterra variants are also equipped with the innovative Driver Monitoring System2 and Vision Assist which includes, Adaptive High-Beam System, Blind Sport Monitor (BSM), Front Parking Sensors, Parking Support Brake, Rear Cross Traffic Alert (RCTA), Rear parking sensors, Safe Exit Assist and Panoramic 360 Degree View Monitor. Solterra AWD Touring exclusively features Advanced Park Assist3.
