Get to Know Subaru EyeSight® Driver Assist Technology

Anything can happen out there in the world. There are as many road hazards here in northern Virginia as there are traffic patterns, and as many weather conditions as other Orange, VA area drivers to consider. Luckily, Subaru EyeSight can help you stay ahead of it all. What is it, and how does it stand out from a crowd of new cars, trucks, and SUVs themselves showcasing the latest technologies?

It's the Subaru suite of driver-assistance technologies, available throughout the line from the compact Subaru Impreza sedan and hatchback all the way to the new Subaru Outback and just about every model in between. What's more, whereas many competitor safety systems are this, that, or another stand-alone feature, EyeSight is comprehensive and wraparound. It's based on four dovetailing elements.

One is adaptive cruise control. This safe-distancing feature automatically adjusts your speed to keep you safely clear of other vehicles in front of you.

The next is a lane-keep assist feature with a sway warning. A monitor that's at work at all times, it'll alert you to maintain the correct road position if you begin to drift lanes.

A third is our automaker's pre-collision throttle management system. Should you approach another driver or an obstacle at imminent risk of an accident, it'll reduce engine power, giving you more time to react and avert the possible worst.

Finally, you can find a pre-collision braking feature. This automatic and reactive system can apply the full force of your brakes in an emergency, helping you stay clear of or mitigate a frontal impact.

Perhaps the best aspect of EyeSight? 2018 models equipped with it receive the highest possible front crash prevention rating of "Superior" from the IIHS. That's in addition to most Subaru cars and SUVs boasting a five-star rating overall from the NHTSA. Factor in vehicle dynamics control and the celebrated and standard Subaru Symmetrical AWD system. Consider the availability of available blind-spot detection and rear cross-traffic alert, or optional STARLINK Safety and Security connected services like automatic collision notification, SOS emergency assistance, enhanced roadside assistance, and more. It's plain to see: the Subaru safety commitment is one to inspire confidence and peace of mind, long down the road of your driving life.
