Subaru’s new-to-Australia Levorg wagon launch last week has been boosted by the Australasian New Car Assessment Program (ANCAP), which has awarded the Levorg the maximum 5-star rating for safety.

The Program said the Levorg’s list of standard safety kit was “commendable”, noting autonomous emergency braking (AEB), adaptive cruise control and lane support systems as standout features.

“This is an impressive package in terms of safety,” ANCAP CEO James Goodwin said.

“The standout with this model is that it offers all three grades of AEB as standard across the model line-up.”

ANCAP praised the decision by Subaru to offer AEB on all models, saying only six of the 100 top-selling models in Australia last year featured standard AEB on all variants.

“Very few models sold in Australia offer AEB as standard so this is a significant offering for a car in this category, and I would urge more manufacturers to follow suit,” Mr Goodwin said.

The Levorg scored 35.85 out of 37 possible points, and the model was tested under ANCAP’s 2016 testing criteria.

Pedestrian safety was rated at ‘good’ as was whiplash protection - which is the maximum rating in those categories - and the Levorg aced the ‘pole test’ (2/2 points) and ‘side impact test’ (16/16 points) as well.
