Subaru EyeSight®: Safety is always in focus
Subaru's exclusive advanced driver-assist system is available only on Lineartronic® CVT, Subaru Sport Transmission® (SPT) and automatic transmission (AT) equipped models. This innovative active safety system is like a second pair of eyes watching out for you, warning and even aiding your ability to avoid potential danger. Utilizing two cameras to monitor activity in the road ahead, EyeSight®◊ provides four different types of preventative assistance to the driver when it is needed most:
Adaptive Cruise Control
Adaptive Cruise Control maintains a set speed and will automatically adjust to keep a safe distance from the car ahead. It is also capable of bringing your vehicle to a full stop and resume your settings as traffic begins to flow again.
Pre-collision Braking helps to gradually slow or stop the car completely when it sees a panic braking situation unfolding ahead of you.
Pre-collision Throttle Management
Pre-collision Throttle Management is designed to cut power from an absent-minded start if it detects a potentially hazardous object is in your way.
Lane Departure and Sway Warning
Lane Departure and Sway Warning both activate a chime sound when your vehicle begins to drift or is too close to another lane. This alert helps to keep you on the straight and narrow. Select 2017 Forester, Impreza, Outback and Legacy models and future models equipped with EyeSight®also incorporate Lane Keep Assist (Steering assistance control) to minimize lane deviations at speeds over 65km/hr.
EyeSight earns "Superior" Front Crash Prevention Ratings
The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) evaluates crashworthiness (how well a vehicle protects its occupants in a crash), as well as crash avoidance and mitigation capability (systems that can prevent a crash or lessen its severity).
For front crash prevention ratings, the Institute conducts low- and moderate-speed tests of vehicles with automatic braking systems and assigns ratings of basic, advanced or superior based on the type of system and its performance.
With Subaru EyeSight® Driver Assist Technology, the Subaru Ascent, Crosstrek, Forester, Impreza, Legacy, Outback and WRX earn a Top Safety Pick combined with a Superior rating for front crash prevention - the highest ratings possible!
