TRACTION AND STABILITY

All-Wheel Drive type Subaru Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive
X-MODE® X-MODE® optimizes engine output and transmission ratio, increases all-wheel
drive system engagement and uses enhanced control of the VDC system to
reduce individual wheelspin, providing optimal traction on low friction surfaces.
Hill Descent Control (HDC) X-MODE® also incorporates Hill Descent Control that helps to maintain a
constant vehicle speed when traveling downhill, enhancing vehicle control.
Vehicle Dynamics Control
(VDC)
Standard VDC electronic stability control utilizes sensors, which constantly
monitor wheel speeds, steering angle, brake pressure, vehicle yaw rate
and lateral g-forces. If VDC detects a difference between the driver’s intended path
and the one the vehicle is actually taking, VDC applies braking power and/or
reduces engine torque to help correct vehicle path.
Active Torque Vectoring Active Torque Vectoring works in tandem with VDC applying braking power to
the inside front wheel resulting in sharper turn-in, more neutral steering and
higher cornering limits when turning.
Traction Control System (TCS) VDC also incorporates an all-wheel, all-speed traction control system which
senses a loss of traction and applies braking force to the slipping wheel or
wheels as necessary to maintain vehicle motion.

For applications to operate, latest version of each application is required. Data provided by smartphone is displayed on the audio system screen. Some state laws prohibit the operation of handheld electronic devices while operating a vehicle. Smartphone apps should only be launched when vehicle is safely parked. Your wireless carrier’s rates may apply. 4 Activation and required monthly subscription sold separately. Includes 4-month trial subscription. See your retailer. 5 Activation and required subscription sold separately. Includes 4-month trial subscription on non-navigation-equipped models or 3-year trial subscription on navigation-equipped models. See your retailer for details. 6 Activation and required subscription sold separately. Includes 1-year trial subscription. See your retailer for details. 7 Blind-Spot Detection, Lane Change Assist, Rear Cross-Traffic Alert are systems designed to assist the driver by monitoring the rear and side areas of the vehicle during a lane change or reversing and are not a substitute for safe and attentive driving. 8 Requires optional Blind-Spot Detection with Lane Change Assist and Rear Cross-Traffic Alert. 9 The glass information listed represents calculated reference values, and may not represent actual values determined by testing. 10 Available only with other features. See Optional Equipment listing. 11 EyeSight is a driver assist technology, which may not operate optimally under all driving conditions. The driver is always responsible for safe and attentive driving. System effectiveness depends on many factors such as vehicle maintenance, weather and road conditions. Pre-Collision Braking System is designed to provide automatic braking that either prevents a collision or reduces the severity of a frontal impacts. Pre-Collision Throttle Management is designed to reduce acceleration and minimize the severity of certain frontal impacts. Adaptive Cruise Control and Brake Light Recognition are designed to assist the driver and are not substitutes for safe and attentive driving. The Lane Departure and Sway Warning, and Lane Keep Assist operates only when the lane markings are visible and its effectiveness depends on many factors. See Owner’s Manual for complete details on system operation and limitations. Please remember to turn off EyeSight when going through a carwash. 12 The Supplemental Restraint System (SRS) (airbags) affords the driver and the front passenger additional protection in moderate to severe frontal and side-impact collisions and outboard 2nd-row passengers additional protection in moderate to severe side-impact collisions. This system provides supplemental protection only, and seatbelts must be worn in order to avoid injuries to out-of-position occupants upon airbag deployment and to provide the best combined protection in a serious accident. Children should always be properly restrained in one of the rear seats. See Owner’s Manual for recommended seating position. 13 Activation with subscription is required. See your retailer for details. 14 Activation and required subscription sold separately. Includes 3-year trial subscription. See your retailer for details.
