The redesigned Subaru Forester received the Top Safety Pick award from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety today. To earn the Top Safety Pick, vehicles must rank “good” — the institute’s top crash rating in front, side and rear impacts. They also must be equipped with stability control.

There are a total of 37 Top Safety Picks. 20 are SUVs, but only two other small SUVs — the Honda CR-V and Honda Element — rank that high. Cars.com’s Kelsey Mays recently reviewed the new Forester and came away impressed.
