These days all cars come with a host of assistance and safety features. However, many have their own benefits and various packages are offered by different makers. Meet Subaru EyeSight, a comprehensive suite that includes safety and assistance features. 

 
Take a look at our new Subaru inventory.

 

What is Subaru EyeSight?

 

Subaru EyeSight is a suite of features. However, the more technical answer involves how these features work. The technology consists of two cameras on either side of your rearview mirror and works with specially designed windshields. Alongside the car’s onboard computer, these cameras help map out the physical road in front of you while driving. They scan the road continuously, watching for potential hazards.

 

What are the Benefits of Using this Technology?

 

The technology can see issues you may not, helping to keep you aware of them and avoiding any hazards while driving. Additionally, the system will watch the road ahead of you even if you were to turn your head to watch for incoming traffic while turning at a traffic light. This system can prevent the collision that would have otherwise occurred if the car ahead of you suddenly stopped moving.

 

Do All Subaru Cars Come With It?

The EyeSight technology does not always come as a standard feature for all models released by Subaru. For 2023, the models which feature this technology as a standard inclusion are the Outback mid-size SUV, the Legacy, and the Ascent 3-Row SUV. Other models will have the Subaru EyeSight technology available as an optional feature for the base or higher trim levels. 

 

As the technology has been around for some time, it’s available on older models, which you can buy pre-owned. Models from 2022 that have the feature as standard include the Legacy, Forester, Outback, and Ascent. 

 

Subaru EyeSight Features

 

Subaru EyeSight comes with a wide range of features that enhance your driving experience. These features include Adaptive Cruise Control, Advanced Adaptive Cruise Control, Lane Keep Assist, Pre-Collision Braking, and Pre-Collision Throttle Management. This suite of assistance and safety features helps protect you and other drivers when on the road.

 

Adaptive Cruise Control

Subaru EyeSight features two versions of cruise control, The basic Adaptive Cruise Control and Advanced Adaptive Cruise Control. The basic version keeps a safe distance from the car before you while maintaining your acceleration and speed. You can pick the distance you want to maintain and let the technology handle the rest.

 

The Advanced Adaptive Cruise Control is a feature that’s available only for selected models. This version offers the same utility as the basic one but also includes the ability to keep you centred in your lane while it manages the speed and acceleration. 

 

Lane Keep Assist

Lane Keep Assist is a fundamental feature on many cars, but it’s still a vital one that helps ease the driving experience. Using the technology’s cameras, the system checks your position within your lane and the position of the lane’s edge. The assistance tool will notify you if you begin to move out of your lane. This feature only monitors, unlike the Advanced Adaptive Cruise Control’s capabilities.

 

Pre-Collision Braking

Pre-Collision Braking is a system that monitors the road ahead using EyeSight’s two cameras and alerts you should a potential hazard or collision be imminent. In an emergency situation, this system can forcefully apply the brakes to keep you safe should you not notice the alerts or react slowly.

 

Pre-Collision Throttle Management

Similarly to Pre-Collision Braking, the system watches the road ahead of you. However, this system will not alert you but instead controls the car’s throttle. Using this, the feature can begin slowing you down to lessen the impact of a collision. The feature can help keep you safe in extreme situations and help reduce frontal damage in minor incidents.

 

Is EyeSight Worth its Cost?

Subaru EyeSight is a handy range of safety and assistance features that help you stay alert and can protect you in emergencies. By braking and slowing down to prevent collisions, the system can work as a second set of eyes that prevents impacts if you’re distracted on checking traffic to the side or behind you when pulling away at a traffic light.
