Subaru and safety go hand in hand and one reason that so many Bradenton drivers love their Subaru and choose Subaru over the competition. Subaru's long-standing commitment to safety is highly awarded by top safety officials and Subaru EyeSight Driver Assist Technology is often regarded as the best safety package on the road. But what makes Subaru EyeSight superior to other safety packages?

Subaru EyeSight Driver Assist Technology is the collection of four advanced safety features that work in tandem to reduce or avoid a collision. In fact, EyeSight Driver Assist Technology has been proven to reduce rear-end collision that results in injuries by an impressive 85%. In another study that the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety, IIHS, conducted EyeSight was found to lower the rate of pedestrian-related injuries by 35%. Subaru models equipped with EyeSight Driver Assist Technology receive the highest possible rating for front crash prevention by IIHS. The four features of EyeSight are:

  • Adaptive Cruise Control: Using two camera's EyeSight will keep a safe following distance by automatically adjusting your speed with the flow of traffic.
  • Lane Keep Assist and Sway Warning: EyeSight will monitor your position in the road and will alert you when you begin to sway out of your lane. Lane Keep Assist will also gently guide you back into the center of your lane.
  • Pre-Collision Braking: The Pre-Collision Braking system will apply full braking force in emergency situations to avoid or reduce collision impact.
  • Pre-Collision Throttle Management: When EyeSight detects objects in front of your Subaru that you are likely to hit, it will reduce engine power to minimize impact force and impact damage.

Subaru EyeSight is standard on many new Subaru models Forester, Outback, Ascent, and Legacy. EyeSight is also more wildly available on the Crosstrek, Impreza, and WRX with every model that features the Lineartronic® Continuously Variable Transmission.
