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.
Advanced Safety Package: High Beam Assist (HBA)*
High Beam Assist increases visibility and safety when driving at night by toggling the Outback’s high beams on and off automatically, depending on driving conditions.
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.
Every Subaru goes above and beyond common practice when it comes to your safety. In the event of a head-on collision, your Outback’s SUBARU BOXER engine and gearbox are designed to avoid moving into the cabin for your protection.
Supplemental Restraint System (SRS)* Airbags
Front SRS* airbags, front side SRS* airbags, curtain SRS* airbags, and knee SRS* airbags come standard on the Outback to give all passengers a higher level of protection in the event of a collision.
Head Restraints on Front Seats
Adjustable for both height and angle, head restraints are designed to accommodate passengers of different sizes and comfort preferences.
Front Seatbelts with Pretensioners and Load Limiters
Height-adjustable front seatbelts feature pretensioners to hold passengers firmly in place, and load limiters that ease peak forces to the chest.
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 Outback.
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.
5-Star Euro NCAP Rating
The Outback has been awarded the maximum five-star rating in safety performance test by Euro NCAP (The European New Car Assessment Programme).
