Why Subaru’s EyeSight Features Are a Must on Your Next Vehicle Purchase
Subaru EyeSight is a safety system designed by Subaru to be like a “second set of eyes” on the road with you. The technology is a set of two windshield-mounted cameras that continually monitor the road ahead. These systems include features such as Pre-Collision Throttle Management, Adaptive Cruise Control, Lane Keep Assist, Sway Warning and Pre-Collision Braking.

Pre-collision Throttle Management helps reduce engine output when EyeSight detects a vehicle or other object directly ahead. This helps prevent the driver from accidentally accelerating too quickly and hitting the object in front of them.
Adaptive Cruise Control is a great addition to an already commonly used feature in cars that is cruise control. This is a feature that controls the speed of your car based on what speed you set it to and with EyeSight, your Subaru is able to adjust the speed at which you are traveling based on the distance between you and other vehicles. You can select this distance based on how close or far you would like to stay behind other vehicles and EyeSight will automatically brake or accelerate to keep that distance consistent.
Lane Keep Assist and Sway Warning is another great feature provided by EyeSight. Sway Warning keeps track of the lines on the roads and alerts the driver, should they start steering out of their lane. Lane Keep Assist has the ability to gently adjust your steering in order to keep you safely in the center on your lane.
Pre-collision Braking is a feature that uses EyeSight to detect if a vehicle is braking or slowing down quickly ahead and alerts the driver to prevent a collision. If the driver does not respond quickly enough, the system can also gently apply the brakes.
The EyeSight safety technology features are all able to be turned on and off within the vehicle and used when the driver would like the extra set of eyes looking out for them on the road. EyeSight has even been shown to reduce the rate of rear-end crashes by 85% in Subaru vehicles!
