Aug. 1, 2014 - PRLog -- The news that the 2014 Subaru BRZ has earned a Top Safety Pick rating from the esteemed Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) was greeted with considerable enthusiasm at Subaru of Hilton Head. As the premier Lowcountry Subaru dealer ( they were quick to note that this brings the number of Subaru vehicles that have received the Top Safety Pick designation this year to seven, which is more than any other automotive brand.

Of the seven vehicles, four have earned a Top Safety Pick rating, and three have received the highest possible Top Safety Pick+ rating. It’s clear that Subaru is doing something right when it comes to producing vehicles that are both safe and fun to drive.

The 2014 BRZ scored the highest possible rating of “Good” in the front moderate overlap, side impact, roof crush, and rear impact tests, with an “Acceptable” rating in the new front small overlap crash test.

A 4-seat compact sports coupe, the 2014 BRZ offers outstanding driving dynamics with a 4-cylinder 200 hp Boxer engine paired with a standard 6-speed manual transmission. A 6-speed automatic transmission with paddle shifters is also an available option.

As efficient as it is sporty, the BRZ rates an EPA-estimated fuel economy of 22 mpg city and 30 mpg highway when equipped with the manual transmission and an impressive 25 mpg city and 34 mpg highway with the automatic.

Along with its sleek styling, comfortable interior, and efficient yet spirited performance, the BRZ is loaded with standard safety features, including:

Front side airbags
Side curtain airbags
Antilock brakes
Traction and stability control (with driver selectable settings)

"We are very pleased that BRZ has joined our other Top Safety Pick models," said Thomas J. Doll, president and chief operating officer, Subaru of America, Inc. "BRZ proves that it is possible to engineer a car that provides both driving enjoyment and safety."

The IIHS Top Safety Pick designation is among the most coveted in the industry, and for Subaru to claim seven highly rated vehicles is certainly noteworthy, speaking volumes about the automaker’s commitment to continually improving the overall quality and safety of the vehicles they manufacture.
