SUBARU Corporation has announced that the Levorg won the Best Award 2020 in Japan New Car Assessment Program (JNCAP) conducted by the Ministry of Land, Infrastructure, Transport and Tourism (MLIT) and the National Agency for Automotive Safety and Victim’s Aid (NASVA).
In Japan NCAP’s latest annual safety testing, Subaru Levorg outperformed the 10 vehicles rated with 5 stars and an overall rating above 98%. At the heart of Subaru Levorg’s active safety system is the new generation EyeSight hardware, a variant of Veoneer’s 4th generation stereo vision system, re-engineered to meet Subaru’s original specification. The new generation EyeSight has two cameras mounted on a wide-baseline design doubling the field-of-view.
In JNCAP’s tests, the stereo vision system achieved an astonishing 100% performance in the following Active Safety Tests:
- AEB in Car-to-Car Rear End Scenarios
- AEB in Car-to Pedestrian Scenarios at Day and at Night
- Lane Departure Prevention
- Pedal Misapplication Prevention
- High Performance Headlights
Subaru Levorg also has Veoneer’s front corner radars installed for more advanced features like forward crossing traffic brake (FCTB).

The Levorg has received the “A rank” in the respective safety performance categories and with its Advanced Automatic Collision Notification system available under Subaru Starlink connected services, it has been awarded the JNCAP Five Star Award 2020, Among all the Five Star awarded vehicles, the Levorg has earned the highest overall evaluation points (186.91 out of 190 points) and it has received the JNCAP Best Award 2020.
Pursuing the goal of “delivering happiness to all,” Subaru will continue to enhance safety through its primary, driving, passive, preventive, and newly-added connected safety technologies under its “all-around safety” principle, which underpins enjoyment and peace of mind for all drivers and passengers. Through these efforts, we aim to achieve zero fatal road accidents*1 by 2030.
