NHTSA Gives Subaru B9 Tribeca a 5-Star Rating on Frontal and Side Impact

September 27, 2005

CHERRY HILL, NJ — The 2006 Subaru B9 Tribeca earned the highest rating in the U.S. De-partment of Transportation's National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) New Car Assessment Program (NCAP) crash tests. The 2006 Subaru B9 Tribeca received 5 stars in the frontal and side-impact crash tests for both the driver and passenger seating positions. NHTSA's New Car Assessment Program (NCAP) provides vehicle safety information, primarily front and side crash test results, and more recently rollover resistance ratings. The test results are relayed via a star rating system — from 1 to 5 stars, with 5 being the highest. The NCAP crash tests are conducted at speeds higher than required by the Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standards for both side impacts, at 38.5 miles per hour, and full frontal barrier impacts, at 35 miles per hour. The tests are done to compare vehicles for the NHTSA Consumer Information Program and the results can be found at
