Subaru Solterra's European specification received five stars from Euro NCAP, the 2022 European New Car Assessment Programme. Solterra achieved scores above the minimum required threshold in all four assessment areas (Adult Occupant, Child Occupant, Vulnerable Road User, Safety Assist).
According to the latest valid test results, the 100% electric Subaru Solterra has received the highest score ever achieved by a Subaru vehicle in the Safety Assist category1 in the Small SUV class. same zamAt the time, it had the highest marks for occupant status monitoring (including driver tracking and seat belt reminder). It also performed well in the Emergency Lane Keeping Assist, Lane Violation Warning and Human Machine Interface sections, while also achieving a very high score for AEB Vehicle-to-Vehicle2 (Pre-Collision Braking).
In general, the new Solterra has a system that detects driver fatigue (i.e. Driver Tracking System), as well as the seat belt reminder system offered as standard on both the front and rear seats, while the Autonomous Emergency Braking (AEB) system performs well in compatibility tests. The Lane Assist system (i.e. Sheriff Violation Warning and Lane Keeping Assist) gently steers the vehicle back into its lane if the vehicle is drifting out of its lane, and intervenes in some more critical situations (Emergency Driving Stop System). Speed assistant detects the local speed limit thanks to the Traffic Sign Reader and the driver can choose to set the limiter (via Speed Limiter) or let the system do it automatically.
The new Solterra achieved maximum points in the Adult Passenger category in recovery and disembarkation. It also did exceptionally well in side crashes and rear crashes.
The tests showed that the passenger compartment remained stable in the far-side movement, while the dummy results showed that the knees and thigh bones of both the driver and passenger were well protected. Yaw control (how far the human body was thrown to the other side of the vehicle when the collision occurred on the far side) was found to be good. Solterra also has a countermeasure to reduce passenger-to-passenger injuries in such impacts. The system provided good protection for the occupants' heads, resulting in good performance in the Euro NCAP test. Tests on the front seats and head restraints also provided good protection against neck injury in the event of a rear-end collision. Geometric analysis of the rear seats also showed good impact protection. There is also an advanced eCall system that warns emergency services in the event of a collision, and a system that automatically brakes to prevent secondary collisions. In the Child Occupant category, the new Solterra received the maximum score in the Crash Test Performance (both front and side crashes) based on children aged 6 and 10, as well as the CRS (Child Restraint System) installation. Good or adequate protection was provided for all critical body areas during the front offset and side barrier tests, and maximum scores were achieved in this part of the assessment. The front passenger airbag can be deactivated to allow the use of a rear-facing child seat in the sitting position. Solterra's design allows all types of child seats to be properly installed and placed. For the Sensitive Road Users assessment area, the all-new Solterra scores very high in the Autonomous Emergency Braking-Cyclist (AEB Cyclist) category.
While the protection of the struck pedestrian's head was mainly good or adequate, the bumper provided good protection to pedestrians' legs thanks to strategically placed fragmentation zones. The AEB system was found to be able to respond to road users who might be harmed as well as other vehicles. The system performed well in responsive tests to pedestrians and cyclists, avoiding collisions in most test scenarios.
