Pushing safety technology forward is just one of the ways Subaru helps keep you and your family safe.
EyeSight® is an extra set of eyes on the road, and if need be, an extra foot on the brake when you drive. When equipped with Subaru EyeSight, Forester, Impreza, Legacy, Outback, and XV Crosstrek models received the highest possible rating for front crash prevention by the IIHS.
Subaru vehicles equipped with optional EyeSight® receive the highest possible ratings in IIHS front crash prevention tests.
Subaru Rear Vehicle Detection is a suite of safety technologies designed to help maximize driver awareness using Blind Spot Detection, Lane Change Assist, and Rear Cross Traffic Alert.
Using radar sensors, the Blind-Spot Detection system warns you with a visual indicator in each side mirror if a vehicle is sensed in your blind spots. Another feature of this system, Lane Change Assist, alerts you with a flashing indicator in each side mirror if it senses a vehicle approaching in a neighboring lane while you signal for a lane change.
Rear Cross-Traffic Alert uses radar sensors to help warn you of traffic approaching from the side as you are backing up, utilizing an audible warning and flashing visual indicators in your side mirrors and Rear-Vision Camera display.
Before you can avoid danger, you have to see it coming. The Rear-Vision Camera gives you a clearer view of the area behind your vehicle, so you can be in charge of your surroundings.
A ring-shaped reinforcement frame helps provide high-impact protection for the passenger compartment. An advanced airbag system deploys up to eight airbags, with Forester, Outback, and XV Crosstrek models also including a rollover sensor. And the engine's low placement is designed to allow it to drive under the chassis in a front-end collision, further protecting the passenger area.
Along with the traction that Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive gives you, Vehicle Dynamics Control (VDC), a stability control system, automatically senses steering and braking inputs to help keep the vehicle on the driver's intended path. The VDC system also includes an all-wheel all-speed traction control system.
In stopping situations, the Anti-Lock Braking System (ABS) pulses braking power to help prevent wheel lockup. Electronic Brake-force Distribution (EBD) optimizes the distribution of braking force between the front and rear wheels according to how the vehicle is loaded with passengers and cargo. And the Brake Assist system helps ensure maximum pressure is applied to the brakes as quickly as possible in an emergency situation.
Available Active Torque Vectoring proactively brakes the front inner wheel in certain turning scenarios, improving turn-in, reducing understeer, and helping the vehicle to follow the driver’s intended path.
Dry, wet, snowy, or off the road, maintaining traction is of the utmost importance. The Subaru Symmetrical AWD system continuously sends power to all four wheels to maximize traction and reduce the chance of slippage in any road condition.
