What is the purpose of Subaru EyeSight technology? 

There are four main purposes of Subaru EyeSight technology. These include: 

For Adaptive Cruise Control: 

Adaptive Cruise Control maintains a set speed and will automatically adjust to keep a safe distance from the car ahead. It is also capable of bringing your vehicle to a full stop and resume your settings as traffic begins to flow again.

For pre-collision braking:

Pre-collision Braking helps to gradually slow or stop the car completely when it sees a panic braking situation unfolding ahead of you.

For pre-collision throttle management:

Pre-collision Throttle Management is designed to cut power from an absent-minded start if it detects a potentially hazardous object is in your way.

For lane departure and sway warnings:

Lane Departure and Sway Warning both activate a chime sound when your vehicle begins to drift or is too close to another lane. This alert helps to keep you on the straight and narrow. Select the Forester, Impreza, Outback and Legacy models, and future models equipped with EyeSight® also incorporate Lane Keep Assist (Steering assistance control) to minimize lane deviations at speeds over 65km/hr.

Subaru EyeSight technology has earned superior crash prevention ratings 

The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety evaluates crashworthiness, as well as crash avoidance and mitigation capability. For front crash prevention ratings, the Institute conducts low- and moderate-speed tests of vehicles with automatic braking systems and assigns ratings of basic, advanced or superior based on the type of system and its performance. With Subaru EyeSight® Driver Assist Technology, the Subaru Ascent, Crosstrek, Impreza, Legacy, Outback and WRX earn a Top Safety Pick combined with a Superior rating for front crash prevention; the highest ratings possible!
