Subaru Vehicle Safety

subaru vehicle safety 

It's no surprise Subaru is the leading manufacturer of choice for both first time car buyers and long-time loyal Subaru drivers. Subaru continues not only to design sharp vehicles perfect for individuals and families, but also to develop features and options that ensure the comfort, enjoyment, and safety of Subaru travelers. As a result, the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety has recognized Subaru as the only manufacturer winning the coveted Top Safety Pick for All Its Models - four years in a row!

Some Innovative Subaru Safety Features:

Subaru EyeSight®

This safety feature includes two cameras that are mounted near the rearview mirror not only to monitor traffic, but also to react to conditions that the driver may not have seen or thought of reacting to quick enough. Subaru EyeSight identifies the problem and either applies the brakes automatically or flashes a warning signal that a crash may be imminent. In addition, this safety feature also optimizes your vehicle cruise control system and will warn you if you are swaying outside of your designated lane.

Child Safety

Every Subaru comes standard with the awesome LATCH child safety rear seat system and rear child door locks so you don't have to worry about your child accidentally opening the door to run out of your parked vehicle or, worse, while the vehicle is moving. In addition, all Subaru sedans come standard with a self-illuminated inside-the-trunk release handle should any child decide to play in the truck - the safety system avoids entrapment.


If the driver can't see it, it's impossible to try to avoid it. Affirming that Subaru truly considers safety first as designers and developers bring new vehicles to the market, every Subaru is designed with optimal visibility. Both generously-sized windows and an available rear-vision camera help to improve visibility around the vehicle and ensure the safety of both the passengers in the vehicle and people, animals, and structures around the vehicle.

Subaru Advanced Airbag System

With all the airbags that Subaru installs in all of its vehicles, the exact moment a front row passenger is seated inside, a cool Occupant Detection System sensor is alerted and the front passenger and dual-stage driver airbags are enabled. The airbags are deployed according to the severity and nature of a crash vs. expanding at full force for simply tapping a curb in a parking lot. In addition (and for the further protection of the driver and front-row passenger), this high-tech, innovative safety system is designed to moderate and recognize the force of airbag deployment according to how physically far back the driver and passenger are seated from the vehicle's dashboard. The seat-mounted and side-curtain airbags provide additional protection should there be a side collision.

Vehicle Dynamics Control System

Initially designed for the aerospace industry, Subaru's Vehicle Dynamics Control system is implemented in their vehicles to recognize the exact direction you want your vehicle to travel on a road vs. where it is the vehicle seems to be going. It ensures both destinations are the same so that you are not skidding out of control due to an icy or wet roadway or your sudden avoidance of a critter in your vehicle's pathway. Should the vehicle start to move laterally, the innovative Vehicle Dynamics Control System will slow down the vehicle's engine while simultaneously gently engaging the brakes to further help the vehicle slow down the slipping wheels. Once the vehicle is back on the intended path, the high-tech system disengages and the driver has full control again.
