The 2022 Subaru Ascent gets high marks from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety's most recent round of evaluations. This periodic set of examinations includes numerous crash tests, visual inspections, and hands-on trials of a vehicle's safety and security amenities.

Reliable Frontal Protection

The Ascent received good or superior ratings on almost every aspect examined during the frontal collision tests. The vehicle's structural supports effectively preserved the size and dimensions of the cabin, and the front and side curtain airbags supplied adequate protection to the occupants inside.

Great Side Protection

When subjected to side crash testing, the Ascent stood up equally well. Safety performance was rated as good or acceptable for all the observation points for two different side-impact collisions. The front and rear passenger dummies also showed little evidence that would point to injury in side crashes of up to 37 miles per hour.

Ease of Use

Installing a child safety seat in some vehicle models can be a real challenge, and that's why the IIHS looks at this important aspect of vehicle ownership very carefully. The 2022 Ascent lineup earned good ratings for the location and functionality of its rear seat LATCH tether systems.

Other Safety Metrics

The IIHS safety testing system also checks out frontal collision avoidance systems, headlight effectiveness, seatbelt function, roof strength, and numerous other factors. The Ascent received good or acceptable ratings for all these features.
