Are New Subaru Forester, Outback, Ascent Built For Safety Like The Ads Say
You can’t always trust TV ads that make all kinds of claims about a car, but Subaru does have truth in their recent tv spots touting the new Forester's safety. Families looking for safety should at least consider buying a new 2020 Subaru Forester SUV, Outback SUV/Crossover or Ascent family hauler.
Subaru knows customers are looking for safety in their next new vehicle. It goes beyond having all-wheel-drive and the best crash test scores. In an interview at a recent test drive of the 2020 Outback, Peter Tenn, planning manager for the Japanese automaker told WardsAuto the desire for vehicle safety tech is a common theme across demographic and psychographic lines.
2020 Subaru Forester
Subaru is giving customers what they want. The Japanese automaker has new safety technology in the new 2020 Subaru Forester, Outback and Ascent vehicles. The new Subaru vehicles come with Driver Focus, Advanced Adaptive Cruise Control, and a new Front View Monitor. They do add an extra level of safety for customers.
Subaru’s newly-introduced DriverFocus uses a dedicated infrared camera aimed at the driver to identify signs of driver fatigue (closed eyes) and distraction (eyes off the road too long). Such detected perils trigger visual and audio signals on the dash to warn the driver to pull over and get some rest.
Stop-go Advanced Adaptive Cruise Control with Lane Centering on the new Forester, Outback and Ascent automatically slows and accelerates the vehicle, depending on the speed of the vehicle ahead. The system works precisely, keeping an “eye” on the vehicle ahead. This is especially useful in stop-and-go-driving where the driver can become complacent.
A new Front View Monitor captures images in the driver’s blind spots and displays a 180-degree view. It’s a first for the newly-redesigned 2020 Subaru Outback and will be coming on new models. The front grille camera can project the vehicle's front view via the in-dash display, increasing front visibility at intersections and when parking facing a wall.
There is also a new Side View Monitor that displays blind spots diagonally in front of the passenger side to make navigating narrow roads easier and street parking more convenient.
Subaru’s TV spots are well produced and aimed at customers interested in safety. The Japanese automaker seems to be telling the truth when it comes to its new 2020 Subaru Forester, Outback and Ascent vehicles being safe for families.
