Pre-Collision (Braking/Throttle/Steering) Assist
Helps avoid or reduce the severity of frontal impacts. If the driver is distracted and fails to break, applies inefficient braking pressure, or mistakenly pushes the accelerator the car can intervene.
Adaptive Cruise Control
Maintains the speed set by the driver, but also regulates the vehicle's speed to maintain a set distance from the car in front, adjusting when the car in front slows down or speeds up to the set speed again.
Lane Sway and Departure Warning
Monitors the vehicle’s position within the road lane markings and sounds a warning when it recognises the potential for the vehicle to unintentionally move out of its lane, or when swaying within the lane is recognised.
Lead Vehicle Start Alert
Prompts the driver to take action when traffic has started moving again by identifying that the vehicle in front is moving away after being stationary. No more getting honked at for not moving off fast enough.
Lane Keep Assist
Recognises the lines on both sides of the lane and has steering assist controls to keep the driver in the middle of the lane.
The Next Generation Eyesight®
Available in the new Outback and selected features on the new Forester, this generation adds Lane Centring Function, Autonomous Emergency Steering and Speed Sign Recognition features.
5 star safety
5 Star ANCAP rating
The Australasian New Car Assessment Program is an independent organisation that provides accurate information on occupant crash safety through a star rating system from 1-5. They use four internationally recognised crash tests: offset frontal, side impact, pedestrian impact and pole impact tests.
7 SRS airbags
All Subarus have a minimum of 7 SRS airbags, including; dual front, side torso, and curtain airbags. These work in conjunction with real-time seatbelt control to slow the body and help minimise occupant injury.
Ring-shaped safety cell
The vehicle body is designed to absorb and direct impact forces around the cabin rather than directly into the passenger safety cell to help minimise injury to the occupants. It works a little bit like a roll cage in a motor sport vehicle.
