Why 2015 Subaru Outback makes Subaru the safety leader
Subaru is leading the automotive world in safety, and the all-new 2015 Subaru Outback shows why Subaru is leading the way around the globe. Subaru is the only automaker in the world with the distinction of earning IIHS Top Safety Pick awards for every model it builds and has done so four consecutive years. The 2015 Outback is projected to achieve the IIHS Top Safety Pick+ award, as the 2014 Outback did. What makes Subaru the safety leader?
The 2015 Subaru Outback continues in the tradition of Subaru’s commitment to building safe vehicles. The fifth-generation Outback will be available with a new Rear Vehicle Detection System featuring Blind Spot Detection, Lane Change Assist and Rear Cross Traffic Alert. It will also be available with their new version of EyeSight driver assistance system with improved camera performance.
And the new 2015 Outback will be even safer than the outgoing model due to getting new front seat-cushion airbags that help to keep occupants in place in a frontal collision. All trim lines come standard with a rear-view camera, and a new rollover sensor can deploy the side curtain airbags if an imminent rollover is detected.
Outback also comes with new added nighttime security features like the new standard Welcome Lighting that automatically turns on cabin illumination and exterior lights as the driver approaches or departs the vehicle. The Outback Limited offers a Keyless Access & Start system with PIN Code Access.
For 2015, Outback Limited comes standard with the new Subaru Rear Vehicle Detection System. The safety system offers three functions: Blind Spot Detection, Lane Change Assist and Rear Cross Traffic Alert. All three keep the driver and occupants safer by detecting vehicles approaching the Outback.
What sets Subaru apart from the competition in the area of safety is their new-generation EyeSight driver-assist system. 2015 Outback features this Subaru system that is the highest-rated front crash prevention system by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS). The new-generation EyeSight uses Subaru-developed stereo camera technology and integrates Adaptive Cruise Control, Pre-Collision Braking and Vehicle Lane Departure Warning. It’s available on Outback Premium and Limited trim lines.
The Outback is truly an outdoor-oriented vehicle and will be safe in all situations. Many Outback buyers will use their multi-use wagon for recreation and it will be safe off-road too. EyeSight equipped models will now come with new Steering-Responsive Fog Lights. Subaru says the new fog lights work only when the fog lights are turned off, and it activates the left or right fog light independently, depending on vehicle speed and steering angle, to provide enhanced illumination in the direction of the turn. The fog lights are pre-aimed for maximum coverage in corners. These work like steering-responsive headlights, but give even more illumination when needed for off-road and extreme conditions like fog and heavy snowfall.
