Fast Cars can be Safe

Want to live dangerously... but don't want to pay with your life when something goes horribly wrong?  Increase your chances of survival with the new 2015 Subaru WRX!  Yes, as it turns out, Subaru's rally-bred 4-door has received top marks not only from petrol-heads, but also from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS).
"In testing, the 2015 Subaru WRX earned a “good” rating in all of the IIHS' crash tests, including moderate overlap front, side, roof strength, and head restraint tests, as well as the difficult small overlap front evaluation. As standard safety equipment, the WRX gets seven airbags, including a driver’s knee airbag. More rigid sport seats with whiplash-reducing headrests, along with a stiffer and stronger uni-body chassis are also standard. Subaru claims the roof has a crush rating four times the vehicle’s curb weight."
This car, though no longer in name, is still an Impreza at it's roots.  Sharing a similar design with the 2012 Impreza, I'm not surprised that the WRX managed a Top Safety Pick from the IIHS.  On the one hand, it's tough to see that beautiful Galaxy Blue Pearl WRX all smashed up.  On the other, it's good to know you stand a good chance of walking away from a serious wreck... so you can replace it with a new WRX.  It's not just a quick car in it's segment.  This grown-up sportscar can keep you and your precious cargo safer than ever.
