With Subaru, you will never have to compromise on safety. Subaru EyeSight technology is our most important and well-known feature. This Subaru innovative feature helps keep you safe by providing you with a warning if you get too close to the car in front of you, if you’re drifting out of your lane, or if there’s a risk of a possible collision.
Let’s unpack this pioneering safety system here.
What is the Subaru EyeSight safety system?
Only the coolest, most advanced, and high-quality safety technology system to ever enter this world. In all seriousness, In 2008, the world’s first camera-based driver assistance technology was born, and the Subaru EyeSight safety system was introduced to the world.
Simply, Subaru EyeSight is an award-winning driver-assist technology developed by Subaru engineers over the past 20 years. We have only perfected this and ensured that every Subaru owner gets the best in quality and experiences confidence in motion with every trip.
How does the Subaru EyeSight Assist Technology work?
We’ve designed this technology to be cutting-edge and for every Subaru model to feature this 5-star rating safety feature. How it works is actually quite simple but amazing to know. Think of it like your second pair of eyes on the road. It monitors the road ahead and recognises any dangerous driving situations, and alerts the driver to slow down. The system detects the presence of not only other cars on the road, but that of pedestrians, cyclists, and other hazards up to 110m.
3D images of these cars and hazards are identified via the camera on the front dash. If the system picks up danger, it issues a warning to the driver and urges them to start safe braking. And if the brakes aren’t engaged, the smart, automated system brakes engages to take preventative measures on the driver’s behalf.

3 Ways the Subaru Eyesight Tech Keeps You Safe on The Road
Keeping you safe on the road is the key to our heart. We value your safety so much that our Subaru EyeSight technology has been designed to offer you world-class safety in every drive. Here are 3 very innovative ways the Subaru EyeSight technology keeps you safe, confident and happy on the road.
1. Pre-Collision Throttle Management
Not being able to see directly in front of you can land you in some sticky situations. With the Subaru pre-collision throttle management function, your Subaru will reduce the available acceleration in the instances where your car is likely to hit an object. This prevents impact force and frontal damage, and even injury to the driver.
2. Lane Sway & Departure Warning
In unreliable and wet weather conditions, drivers tend to sway in between lanes which can cause serious accidents. Luckily for you, another function of the Subaru EyeSight technology safety system is that your car will sound a warning to you if your vehicle sways in or out of the lanes unintentionally.
3. Pre-Collision Braking System
Even if you didn’t see a front impact coming, the Subaru EyeSight technology certainly did. Our practical pre-collision braking system commands automatic braking that could help reduce the severity of frontal damage. So, in those instances where you’re distracted or don’t take note of the upcoming collision, your Subaru will hit the brakes for you.
