Safety is paramount when it comes to buying a new Subaru vehicle for your family. At Pfaff Subaru, we have a very large selection of new and pre-owned Subaru vehicles that are waiting for you to take out for a test drive and park in your driveway permanently! Subaru vehicles are not only known for their superior off-road capabilities and performance, but also for their safety features. We are always encouraging our customers to schedule a test drive at our Pfaff Subaru dealership so that they can truly experience what a Subaru vehicle has to offer in the form of safety and performance. In this blog, we talk about some of the safety features that Subaru vehicles have and how these features can keep you and your family safe! 

360 Degrees of Protection 

A longstanding and steadfast commitment to safety has given Subaru vehicles an impenetrable reputation for superior protection. This powerful commitment is reflected in vehicles with four key attributes. From the start, holistic design gives drivers confidence in the form and function of the vehicles themselves. The vehicles are then engineered to deliver the highest levels of control and stability in all possible conditions. They are also infused with the latest technology to help drivers avoid accidents before they happen. And the vehicles feature ultra-strong construction and advanced safety systems that help minimize the chance of injury in the event of an accident. This all-encompassing approach to safety gives Subaru drivers the freedom to pursue adventure in their lives, going where they want, when they want, even in the face of unexpected obstacles or surprises from Mother Nature. 

Active Safety 

A vehicle that performs at a higher level dynamically is, by definition, also a higher-performing vehicle when it comes to safety. The all-new Subaru vehicles introduced from 2017 onwards utilize the ultra-strong Subaru Global Platform, which will continue rolling out onto future models. All vehicles in the current fleet feature a world-class AWD system and boast class-leading active safety systems, such as Active Torque Vectoring, Brake Assist, Brake Override, Electronic Brake-force Distribution and Vehicle Dynamics Control (VDC). These attributes give Subaru vehicles superior handling, braking and evasive capabilities, and give the Subaru driver higher degrees of control in less than ideal circumstances.

Preventative Safety 

Long at the forefront of safety, Subaru has never rested on its laurels and continues to advance technology to best protect occupants. This relentless approach has led to the introduction of such innovations as the EyeSight® Driver Assist Technology, DriverFocus Distraction Mitigation System, Subaru Rear/Side Vehicle Detection and Reverse Automatic Braking, systems that help drivers avoid accidents in the first place. In the belief that accident avoidance is the best way to preserve safety, Subaru continues to drive towards a future wherein complete peace of mind is engineered into every vehicle.

Passive Safety 

In the event that an accident proves unavoidable, every Subaru vehicle features a wide range of passive safety systems designed to deliver class-leading levels of protection. Each vehicle boasts exceptionally rigid construction and incorporates the latest in passive safety systems, including a ring-shaped reinforcement safety cell, a full complement of airbags, collapsible pedals and front bumpers designed to minimize injury to pedestrians. Together, these advances help better protect occupants and reduce the effect of collision damage and, in turn, generate much greater peace of mind.
