The 2016 Subaru Outback with available EyeSight got the highest possible IIHS front crash prevention score.
For the first time ever, the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) conducted tests to evaluate collision avoidance systems in new cars. See how the Subaru Legacy and Outback earned "Superior" ratings.
ADAPTIVE CRUISE CONTROL
Two cameras are mounted by the rearview mirror to monitor traffic and react to conditions even before you do. One benefit is the optimization of your cruise control, sensing the pace of the vehicles ahead of you and helping to adjust the speed accordingly.
While monitoring the vehicles in front of you, EyeSight will sound an alert and flash a visual warning if there's danger of a collision. And it will apply the brakes automatically if you haven't already done so.
LANE SWAY AND DEPARTURE WARNING
In the same way EyeSight keeps an eye on other vehicles, it also watches your vehicle's space in the lane, warning you if you've accidentally swayed too far to either side.
Available on: 2.5i Premium, 2.5i Limited, 3.6R Limited
LANE KEEP ASSIST
New for 2016, in addition to warning when you are inadvertently swaying within in your lane, EyeSight can also provide gentle steering input to help keep the vehicle's path centered.
