There are more people on the roads today than ever before, and it seems like the number increases exponentially every day. With the highways and streets of the nation being so clogged with vehicles, safety becomes an ever-increasing concern with automobiles. After all, no matter how safe a Freehold, Marlboro, Manalapan, or Englishtown driver you might be, you never know when the other person is going to do something irresponsible!
Subaru has answered the call of astounding safety technology by introducing its EyeSight technology package, which combines the best in standard safety features in a way that has never been done before. Read about the benefits of Subaru EyeSight Technology, the features packed within, and where you can get behind the wheel to check it out for yourself.
Subaru EyeSight Technology
The idea behind Subaru EyeSight, as the manufacturer describes it, is to give drivers an extra pair of eyes while they're on the road as well as an extra foot ready to press the brake if needed. EyeSight takes everything that Subaru's engineers have learned about safety over the years, and combines it in a unique package of driver confidence and safety features that work together. This, in effect, creates a smart car that keeps you and your passengers safe.
EyeSight-equipped vehicles see all their safety features working together, including traffic monitoring, adaptive and optimized cruise control, lane departure, crash warning and mitigation systems, and more. While many cars have these features, only EyeSight vehicles see them work together in such an intelligent and efficient way.
The Features of EyeSight
At the center of EyeSight, smart safety is a set of two color cameras which are situated near your rearview mirror. These cameras are able to scan the road all around for dangers that you didn't expect or see coming. This adds additional awareness, including a number of automatically-activated safety features, such as:
- Adaptive Cruise Control: EyeSight smart cruise control helps to maintain safe distances between you and the vehicles around you.
- Lane-Keeping Functions: The technology pays attention to where you are on the road, and lets you know when you're straying too far to the right or left.
- Frontal Collision Warning: If you're about to have a collision, EyeSight warns you in advance.
- Collision Mitigation: If your vehicle tests an imminent crash, it has a suite of collision mitigation systems, including pre-crash braking and automatic throttle-down management, designed to reduce or even avoid front-end crashes.
Every Subaru vehicle equipped with EyeSight technology packages has received the highest possible rating for frontal crash protection-a 2016 Top Safety Pick + ranking. When compared directly with similar vehicles, the differences are striking. Among the Legacy, Accord, Fusion, Sonata and Camry, for example, the Legacy from Subaru is the only vehicle with throttle management for collision mitigation.
