Advanced System Improves On-road Awareness

The Subaru EyeSight system is built around a set of dual cameras. These cameras are conveniently located near the rearview mirrors and they scan the road for potential hazards. If the system detects anything potentially unsafe, it alerts the driver and in some cases, this feature can even apply full braking force.

Subaru EyeSight system acts as an extra set of eyes, increasing your sense of safety on the road. Because you can’t predict everything that will happen, you can rely on Subaru EyeSight to help.

Key Features Bring Peace of Mind and Enhanced Safety

All the features of the Subaru EyeSight system work together to enhance safety. The system is able to sense dangers before they occur using key features.

Adaptive Cruise Control lets you set a safe distance between you and the car in front of you. Choose the distance you want to keep, and EyeSight will adjust your speed to maintain that selected distance.

EyeSight Lane Keep Assist senses when a car has gone out of the lane or is swaying in a dangerous manner. If you stray from your lane, you are alerted with a loud beeping. If the driver doesn’t correct, the system can intervene and steer the vehicle back into the lane.

With Pre-Collision Braking, the EyeSight system can apply brakes at the first sense of an obstacle on the road. In emergency situations, this feature will apply full braking force to help avoid the potential collision. In fact, an IIHS study found that EyeSight lowers the rate of pedestrian-related injuries by up to 35%.

With the Pre-Collision Throttle Management feature, you are alerted if there is anything detected in front of the vehicle. If it senses that an object might be hit, EyeSight can immediately reduce power to the engine, giving the driver more time to respond and apply the brakes.
