Subaru All-Around Safety
Subaru All-Around Safety
When your car gives you peace of mind, life becomes more enjoyable. That’s why at Subaru, safety comes first. Originally rooted in aircraft manufacturing, Subaru continues its ‘people first’ policy by fine-tuning, testing, and retesting its advanced safety features, developed over 50 years. With the latest in collision protection/avoidance systems and unique technologies like Subaru Global Platform and Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive, Subaru continuously strives to improve All-Around Safety to envision an accident-free future.
Primary Safety begins at the underlying design stage. Outstanding visibility, optimal driving position, and intuitive controls help keep you safe from the moment you enter your vehicle.
Visibility in all directions
Optimal driving position, window heights, and carefully arranged pillars provide excellent visibility in all directions to reduce blind spots, letting you easily check your surroundings.
With advanced safety technologies such as EyeSight*1, Preventive Safety helps avoid collisions before they happen.
Reverse Auto-tilt Door Mirror
The passenger-side door mirror automatically tilts down when you shift into Reverse to reduce the blind spots around the rear tyres, which helps make reverse parking more convenient and safer for any driver.
High Beam Assist (HBA)*2
High Beam Assist increases visibility and safety when driving at night by toggling the high beams on and off automatically, depending on driving conditions.
Subaru Rear Vehicle Detection (SRVD)*2
Sensors placed around the vehicle alert you of vehicles in your rear blind spots for safer lane changes. It also warns you of potential collision danger while driving in reverse into a street with cross traffic.
Steering Responsive Headlights (SRH)
These headlights operate interconnectedly with steering input and vehicle speed to aim your lights in the direction your vehicle is turning, helping you see better around corners for safer nighttime driving.
Thanks to technologies like Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive and SGP, Active Safety allows precise control of your vehicle by fine-tuning the basic elements of driving—driving, turning, braking—so you can enjoy each drive with peace of mind.
Vehicle Dynamics Control System
If the vehicle approaches the limits of stability, the AWD torque distribution, engine output, and brakes at each wheel are adjusted to assist in keeping the vehicle on course.
Auto Vehicle Hold
When the vehicle is at a complete stop, Auto Vehicle Hold keeps the vehicle in place even when the brake pedal is released, reducing driver fatigue in stop-and-go traffic.
Passive Safety is designed to keep you safe in the event of a collision, with features such as the cabin-protecting engine layout and SRS* airbags.
Ring-shaped Reinforcement Frame
The Ring-shaped Reinforcement Frame makes better use of high-tensile steel panels and has been structurally redesigned for more efficient energy absorption from impacts in all directions.
Now sitting lower than ever due to the low centre of gravity design of the SGP, the engine and gearbox are designed to avoid crashing into the cabin in the event of a collision.
SUBARU’s World-leading Driver Assist Technology
At Subaru, we believe in ALL-AROUND SAFETY, and an important part of that is pre-collision safety, making sincere efforts to ensure an accident never happens. That’s why we created EyeSight*1 , Subaru’s cutting-edge driving support system. Like a second pair of eyes for the road ahead, EyeSight uses two stereo cameras to capture three-dimensional colour images with excellent image recognition, nearly as capable as the human
eye. Using images from both cameras to precisely determine the shape, speed and distance, it not only detects vehicles but also motorbikes, bicycles, and pedestrians. *2 When spotting potential danger, it warns the driver and even applies the brakes if necessary to help avoid an accident. With improved safety performance like this, EyeSight reduces the burden on the driver and enhances your sense of security in the Impreza.
Lead Vehicle Start Alert
When you’re at a stop and EyeSight senses that traffic has started moving again, Lead Vehicle Start Alert prompts the driver to take action with a buzzer and a flashing indicator.
*2 Pre-Collision Braking System may not work in all situations. Depending on the speed difference from objects, the object’s height, and other conditions, every situation may not meet the necessary conditions for EyeSight to work optimally.
