A new round of crash-safety testing with the Australasian New Car Assessment Program (ANCAP) has delivered a pair of unsurprising results: 5-Star scores for Subaru’s new Liberty sedan and Outback SUV.

The outcome continues Subaru’s run of 5-Star results, a record that the Japanese carmaker has long focused on in marketing its Australian line-up.

Both cars scored well across the board, with specific impact test results ranging from ‘acceptable’ to ‘good’.

Overall scores for both was 35.99 out of a possible 37, positioning the new Subaru pair among the highest-scoring cars of 2014.

“This is particularly encouraging given both of these new models have been assessed, against ANCAP's more stringent 2015 requirements,” ANCAP chairman Lauchlan McIntosh said today.

Subaru did not escape a light lashing however, with Mr McIntosh highlighting the absence of the carmaker’s EyeSight collision-avoidance and Attention Assist systems among the standard features of the new Outback.

Although standard across the Liberty sedan range, both will only be offered as optional extras for the Outback.

“It is good to see safety assist technologies becoming increasingly available, but ANCAP encourages Subaru, and all other manufacturers, to include these technologies as standard in all models and all markets,” Mr McIntosh said.

Other standard safety equipment for both models will include dual frontal, side chest and side head airbags, along with a driver knee airbag.

Also standard are antilock brakes, electronic brake distribution and electronic stability control.

The new Liberty and Outback make their Australian debut next week.
