2014 Subaru XV Crosstrek, Forester, Outback, Legacy

How Subaru will build the safest cars on the planet by 2014

The next-generation Subaru EyeSight safety system will see big improvements on the 2015 Forester, Outback and Legacy models.

What does Subaru do when they have the best front crash avoidance system in the auto industry? They make it even better than before. Subaru isn't standing pat on their EyeSight safety system that received the highest rating possible by IIHS. It is better than any automaker’s system and it’s getting better. It will arrive on all new Subaru models starting next year like the 2015 Forester, Outback, Legacy, XV Crosstrek, Impreza and BRZ models.

Subaru has a goal to prevent traffic accidents, and they are aiming for zero accidents by automobiles in the future. It’s an ambitious goal, but if anyone can do it, Subaru can. Their parent company, Fuji Heavy Industries (FHI) is a leader in auto safety technology and is advancing forward in an impressive way. FHI has fully revamped the already successful stereo camera system from the current version of EyeSight for significantly improved recognition accuracy and added steering assist control features.

What makes this Subaru safety system the best in the world? Subaru has developed its next generation "EyeSight" advanced driving assist system to enhance safety performance and further reduce the burden on the driver. Driver distraction is the number one cause of accidents and Subaru has done something to eliminate the problem.
