Subaru of America's flagship safety models will be the newly remodeled 2023 Subaru Outback, Ascent, Legacy, and all-new 2024 Subaru Crosstrek. A new announcement from Denso, Subaru's supplier that develops its advanced safety technology, says four Subaru models will have an expanded vision sensor camera increasing the sensor's ability to recognize pedestrians and bicycles around the new Outback, Ascent, Legacy, and Crosstrek to improve road safety.
Because many accidents with bicycles and pedestrians occur around an intersection, the new vision sensor will help detect children and bicycles entering the road suddenly from the side and apply the Outback, Ascent, Legacy, and Crosstrek's brakes.
The new safety technology uses Subaru's EyeSight driver assist system that processes the recognized information and first gives an alert to the driver. It applies brakes to avoid collisions with crossing bicycles and pedestrians when necessary. In case of an accident, the system helps to mitigate the damage.

The 2023 Outback Touring with the updated technology is the only Outback trim level to come with the new safety technology. The Outback arrives this fall for U.S. customers.
What is the price of the 2023 Outback Touring?

What 2024 Crosstrek models will come with the new Wide-Angle Mono Camera?

Like the Outback, Subaru may decide to offer the new wide-angle camera on the top-of-the-line Crosstrek Limited trim level.
What is the price of the 2024 Subaru Crosstrek?
Subaru has not announced pricing for the next-generation Crosstrek. When will the new subcompact be available for U.S. customers?
Subaru Corporation says they will launch the all-new 2024 Crosstrek in Japan in 2023 (or later) and then introduce the third-generation subcompact SUV in the U.S. and other global markets. Customers in the U.S. may have to wait until 2024 to get their hands on the new Crosstrek with advanced safety technology.
When will the Subaru Forester, Impreza, WRX, and BRZ models get the new safety technology? Subaru will likely add the new wide-angle camera to its entire lineup for the 2024 models. Stay tuned.
