The popular magazine for families, Parents Magazine, recently put together its list of 20 Best Family Cars of 2020. Of the cars featured on this list, it's no surprise that four champions from Subaru ended up highlighted: the Subaru Ascent, Crosstrek Hybrid, Forester, and Legacy. These four Subaru best-sellers each also earned their separate achievement by Parents, all based on safety ratings and road tests performed by magazine officials.

Family-Friendly and Here for You!

Each of these four top new Subaru models was picked for the list of Top Family Cars of 2020 due primarily to their crash-test results by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA). The NHTSA is a federally-funded new car assessment program, so an overall five-star rating is considered a great achievement. Likewise, Parents Magazine reviewers also considered the ratings of the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS), another highly-regarded new car assessment program. The Forester, Ascent, Legacy, and Crosstrek all earned the most prestigious HIS Top Safety Pick+ award, and the brand as a whole was one of few that won the most IIHS awards for 2020.

Each of these four Subaru performers also earned the achievement of their own by Parents Magazine for different reasons:

  • Subaru Ascent: Won "Best for Big Families" title due to its eight-seat passenger capacity, 19 cupholders, all-wheel-drive, and new safety features like EyeSight® and a Rear Seat Reminder.
  • Subaru Crosstrek Hybrid: Earned title Best Eco Pick" for its ability to travel up to 480 miles on a single tank of fuel, thanks to its plug-in electric hybrid powertrain.
  • Subaru Forester: The iconic Subaru SUV won the title of "Best for Road Trips," unsurprisingly due to its spacious five-seat interior and standard all-wheel-drive. The AWD and ground clearance of the Forster even gives this mid-size crossover lots of off-roading credibility.
  • Subaru Legacy: The Subaru Legacy represents the Subaru sedan lineup quite well on this list, earning recognition as the "Best All-Weather" car. What helped the Legacy win this segment is that t stood out as the only sedan to offer all-wheel-drive.
