Why SUBARU: Safety

Preventive Safety

Assist safer drive with advanced technology.

We can say that eliminating an accident is the ultimate goal of any car manufacturer. Therefore, Subaru has developed the stereo camera and radar...


A second pair of eyes.

Subaru is committed to driver safety, and that was the key objective behind the development of EyeSight, as avoiding a collision is the best way to remain safe on the road. Two cameras that function similarly to...

Stereo Camera

Stereo Camera Recognition

Collision Avoidance

Pre-Collision Braking System

In case of the presence of collision risk, it warns a driver of danger. If there is not avoidance control, it applies a brake to reduce speed or stop automatically. If there is avoidance control, it applies a brake at maximum force quickly by “Pre-Collision Braking Assist.”

Throttle Management *

If the driver mistakenly selects drive instead of reverse when the car is stopped or traveling very slowly, and EyeSight detects an object in front of the car, Pre-collision Throttle Management emits warnings, flashes the lamp and restricts engine output. This may help the driver avoid a nasty mishap at the front.

* The system may not be activated depending on the shape or visibility of walls or objects in front of the car.

Reverse Automatic Braking

When driving in reverse, four sonar sensors on the rear bumper detect obstacles. When the vehicle detects a possible collision, the driver is alerted. If the driver fails to respond by pressing brake, etc., the brake is applied automatically to prevent collision or reduce the damage from collision.

Driving Support

Adaptive Cruise Control *

EyeSight has transformed the concept of traditional cruise control. The stereo cameras operate in concert with the engine, transmission and braking systems to ensure that the car remains a set distance behind the car in front, making adjustments for distance. The system is also extremely convenient on long drives or peak hour traffic even in stop-and-go movement.

* Adaptive Cruise Control is a driving support system designed for to make driving on highways or expressways. The above feature may not operate as expected depending on various conditions including the road, weather, and car. This system does not provide the driver with an automatic driving function that is capable of handling all traffic conditions. Drivers must remember not to exceed posted speed limits. The adaptive cruise control range differs depending on the country.

Sway Warnings

Driving fatigue can lead to a driver unintendedly swaying around their lane. When the system detects that and the car’s speed is approximately 60 km/h or more, EyeSight provides the driver with an audible warning and indicator light to help stay on track. The driver also will be alerted if the system detects that the car does begin to stray into the next lane when driving at a certain speed.

Start Alerts

EyeSight helps drivers keep up with the flow of traffic by emitting and a sound and a flashing light if the car remains stationary when it detects that the car in front has taken off and traffic has started moving and other conditions are met.

Active Lane Keep

Active Lane Keep is the function to reduce driver fatigue drastically. Stereo camera recognizes both sides of the lines of driving lanes when you drive on the highway or automobile roads, thereby this function enables the driver to avoid the lane departure by assisting steering.

EyeSight Assist Monitor*

A display linked with EyeSight is projected on the front windshield by LEDs. It enables the driver to see the operation status and various warnings of EyeSight intuitively and safely.

*This is separate from the EyeSight function itself. This technology may not be available in some countries and areas. Please inquire at your local distributor for detailed.

Vision Assist

Subaru realizes the blind spots minimization and clear night vision by advanced technologies. Our safety aims to prevent an accident, delivering greater enjoyment...

Subaru Rear Vehicle Detection

The sensor installed in the rear of the car body detects vehicles approaching from behind. The driver is warned of an approaching vehicle by the LED indicator on the surface of the door mirror or the alarm.

Side View Monitor

Footage from the camera installed in the passenger’s side door mirror is displayed in the Multi-Function Display. This helps the driver to check the front left side, which is usually a blind spot.

High Beam Assist

A single-lens camera installed in the front windshield detects front illumination and switches between high-beam and low-beam automatically to ensure clear and safe night vision.

Steering Responsive Headlights

The left and right headlights illuminate the road ahead, with their respective optical axes being adjusted to different angles to secure a clear view. This enables a vehicle or a pedestrian to be quickly identified, thereby enhancing night driving safety.

Alert of Danger

Emergency Stop Signal

If emergency braking is detected while driving, hazard lamps will flash rapidly. This is to alert other drivers behind the vehicle to prevent rear-end collisions.


Never drive the car relying solely on the system explained above alone. The system has been designed assist the driver in making decisions on the road, and to reduce the chance of accidents or damage due to accidents and driver stress. It was not designed to prevent drivers from failing to focus on the road ahead by driving inattentively or carelessly, nor was it designed to provide driving assistance under poor weather or visibility conditions. It was also not designed to prevent collisions from occurring under any conditions. Drivers are responsible for driving safely and shall comply with all traffic rules and regulations regardless of the fact that the car is equipped with the system. Drivers shall ensure that they are driving safely, and maintain a safe distance between the car in front, pay attention to their surroundings and driving conditions, and apply the brake pedal when necessary or take other measures to maintain a safe driving distance. When a warning is activated, drivers should pay attention to what is in front of the car and the surroundings, operate the brake pedal and take other action as necessary.

There are limits to the system recognition and control performance in addition to the outline provided here. Drivers must be sure to read the owner’s manual for each function before using the system, and always use it properly. Improper use may lead to failure of control performance, which could cause an accident.

These videos are for illustration purposes only and may differ from actual specifications.

If there are discrepancies between these outlines (including the videos) and the outline provided in the owner’s manual, the outline in the owner’s manuals shall prevail.
