Safety for All

Standard EyeSight® Driver Assist Technology

EyeSight® monitors traffic movement, optimizes cruise control and warns you when you're swaying outside your lane. The Automatic Pre-collision Braking feature can even apply full braking force and bring you to a complete stop in emergency situations.7 And with Lane Keep Assist, it can even help you steer back into your lane. Another way Subaru designs vehicles with your safety in mind.
