Solid proof (no pun intended) that Subaru's latest iteration of the Ring-Shaped Reinforcement Frame sets a high standard of safety for "mainstream" brands (excluding luxury brands such as Volvo).


Pay close attention to the A, B, and C pillars on impact. Notice how they hold up and maintain their structure. The other mainstream brands are playing catch-up to Subaru's high standard.

Now I'm not saying all other mainstream brands were unable to pass, I'm just saying from a structural standpoint, Subaru's vehicles show exceptional stiffness compared to a large majority of the competition.
