2019 Subaru WRX
Front Crash Prevention: Superior (6 points)
With the WRX, Subaru offers excellent performance in a very safe package. Motivated by a turbocharged 268-horsepower engine, the WRX features full-time all-wheel drive, a standard feature of every Subaru except the BRZ. The Japanese automaker made Eyesight available on the WRX for the 2016 model year, which includes a full suite of safety features; most important is automatic emergency braking. As with other Subarus on this list, the WRX Limited is also available with blind-spot detection as well as rear cross-traffic alert. The WRX was not named a Top Safety Pick + in 2017 due to headlights that did not meet the requirements. Last year LED steering-responsive headlights became available, helping the WRX earn the requisite Good rating.
