Subaru Safety

An Extra Set of Eyes on the Road

Introducing Subaru EyeSight. Developed by Subaru engineers, it's the most significant leap in crash prevention since our invention of Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive. 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, the 2015 Subaru Forester, Impreza, Legacy, Outback, and XV Crosstrek models received the highest possible score in front crash prevention by the IIHS.

Every Subaru comes standard with the Anti-Lock Brake System (ABS) to prevent wheel lock-up as well as Electronic Brake-force Distribution, which makes sure braking is applied to the front and rear wheels depending on the passengers and load. In the instance of an emergency braking situation, Brake Assist applies the maximum amount of pressure as quickly as possible.

From Start to Stop...

At Subaru, safety is built into all aspects of the vehicle. Almost every Subaru is not only equipped with Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive for superior traction in the Northwest's most challenging conditions, but with Vehicle Dynamics Control (VDC), a stability and traction control system that automatically senses steering and braking inputs and assures that your vehicle goes where you want it to go safely.

360 Degrees of Protection

Subaru employs a high-tensile steel, ring-shaped frame in addition to the advanced airbag system in order to fully protect the passenger compartment. Additionally, because of the Boxer engine's unique design and low placement, it will drive under the vehicle instead of into the passenger compartment in the event of a front-end collision.

Each Subaru also enhances driver safety by providing exceptional visibility, including an optional rear-vision camera on select models. Every vehicle also comes standard with the LATCH child safety rear seat system and rear child door locks.
