SUBARU EyeSight

Our innovative driver assist technology.

At Subaru we believe in all-around safety. An important part of that is pre-collision safety: making every effort to ensure an accident doesn’t happen in the first place. That’s why we created EyeSight*, Subaru’s innovative driver assist system. More accurate than traditional camera and sensor technologies, EyeSight uses dual cameras to detect other vehicles, motorbikes, bicycles and pedestrians. When a potential hazard is identified, EyeSight warns the driver and can even apply the brakes if necessary, to help you avoid a collision. Comprised of six safety systems, EyeSight is like a second set of eyes on the road to help keep you and your family safe.

EyeSight is fitted as standard on XV, Outback, Impreza and Levorg. It’s also available on Lineartronic Forester models.

1. ADAPTIVE CRUISE CONTROL

Adaptive Cruise Control allows the driver to set vehicle speed and distance to the car in front. It constantly monitors distance and speed then adjusts the engine, transmission and brakes accordingly to maintain speed in line with the traffic flow. Designed for use on motorways and similar roads, Adaptive Cruise Control improves driver comfort and convenience on long drives.

2. LANE SWAY AND DEPARTURE WARNING

Lane Sway and Departure Warning will alert the driver with a visual and audible warning if the vehicle sways or departs its lane without indicating.

3. LEAD VEHICLE START ALERT

It’s easy to become distracted when waiting in stationary traffic. EyeSight will prompt the driver to notice that vehicles in front have started moving again with a buzzer and flashing indicator.

4. LANE KEEP ASSIST

Lane Keep Assist will offer gentle steering control if the vehicle is about to deviate from its lane at approximately 40 mph or above.

5. PRE-COLLISION BRAKING SYSTEM

Pre-collision Braking System activates visual and audible warnings to alert the driver of a potential collision. If the driver fails to take evasive action, the brakes will be applied automatically to either prevent an accident entirely or reduce the severity of an impact depending on speed. If the driver brakes but does not apply enough pressure, the system will increase braking force.

6. PRE-COLLISION THROTTLE MANAGEMENT

If the car is parked facing an obstacle, EyeSight will give the driver a visual and audible warning if they accidentally select drive instead of reverse. The system will also cut engine output to help avoid a frontal collision.

7. EYESIGHT ASSIST MONITOR*

A display that links the operating status of EyeSight and warnings are projected onto the windscreen in a simplified way using LEDs to reduce driver eye movements.

EyeSight is a driving support system which may not operate optimally under all driving conditions. The driver is always responsible for safe and attentive driving and observance of traffic regulations. See Owner’s Manual for complete details on system operation and limitations.

*EyeSight Assist Monitor only available on Levorg models.
