Safety For All

Standard EyeSight® Driver Assist Technology

EyeSight has been found to reduce rear-end crashes with injuries by up to 85%.[5]

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.[6] 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.

Standard on: All models

Each day in the United States, more than 1,000 people are injured in crashes reported to have involved a distracted driver[7]. Working with our award-winning EyeSight Driver Assist Technology, the new DriverFocus[4] system is like having an attentive co-pilot along for the ride, available to give a helpful alert if a driver becomes distracted or drowsy. For added convenience, DriverFocus can also recognize up to five different drivers and remember their preferences, including seat position, climate settings, and outside mirror position.
