Subaru EyeSight® Technology

While upgrading its overall technology offerings to provide class-leading functionality for drivers throughout the Montclair, Clifton, Bloomfield, and other areas across the United States, Subaru recognized the need for drivers to sometimes have an extra pair of eyes, leading to the creation of Subaru EyeSight® Technology.

In 2016, the manufacturer equipped the Subaru Forester, Legacy, and Outback models with this technology, which in turn garnered them the highest possible safety scores by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety for frontal crash protection. Read about Subaru EyeSight® Technology, how it keeps you and your passengers safe while on the road, and where you can learn more about this technology package.

What Is Subaru EyeSight® Technology?

 Subaru EyeSight® Technology is a package or suite of safety technologies to keep your car safe and secure even in the most dangerous road conditions.

At its most basic level, EyeSight® combines Lane Departure Warning, Adaptive Cruise Control, and Forward Collision Braking and Throttling into one package. By allowing these functions to integrate and work together, your car's ability to mitigate and even avoid accidents is greatly enhanced.

Adaptive Cruise Control

Adaptive Cruise Control is a newer technology feature on vehicles across the board, appearing over the past several years and becoming increasingly common. Adaptive Cruise Control uses technology to control braking and the monitoring of your surroundings to keep you at a safe distance from other vehicles and objects, helping to avoid collisions.

Lane Departure and Sway Warning

Distracted driving is one of the biggest dangers on the road today. While technology features in cars are great, they can also divert your attention from where it belongs. EyeSight® Lane Departure and Sway Warning lets you know when you're about to drift, so you can react accordingly.

Throttle Management

People tend to panic when they're about to have an accident. Your reflexes override your brain, and sometimes that results in disastrous occurrences like accidentally stepping on the gas instead of the brake. EyeSight®'s Throttle Management system detects objects in your path and throttles down to minimize the risk of impact and lessen the force if you do collide.

Automatic Braking

If throttling down doesn't give you enough time to gather your wits and avoid an accident, EyeSight® ups its game once more. It's able to warn you about the imminent collision and engage automatic braking to stop faster and with more authority than you'd be able to by just stepping on the pedal. This helps to reduce the severity of an impact, and can even avoid one entirely.

Subaru EyeSight® Technology is nothing short of outstanding when it comes to safety technology packages that keep you safe and able to avoid crashes while on the road. In the 2017 year, drivers will see even more cars equipped with this package, including the Legacy, Impreza, Forester, Outback, WRX, and Crosstrek. Thanks to EyeSight® Technology, Subaru is now a brand that's known for outstanding safety ratings in both independent and government crash tests.
