How 2017 Subaru Impreza Reverse Auto Braking Can Prevent a Collision [Video]

When the all-new 2017 Subaru Impreza arrives, it will feature Reverse Auto Braking. How can it prevent a collision?

Subaru’s Reverse Auto Braking feature will be available on the all-new 2017 Impreza sedan and hatchback when it arrives. It’s standard on 2017 Forester, Legacy, and Outback models equipped with the Technology Package. The new Impreza will also feature this new safety system. How can it prevent a collision?

How does it work?

The system detects obstructions behind the vehicle and automatically applies the brakes when it judges that the risk of collision is high. Reverse auto braking also incorporates a rear obstruction warning feature, which signals drivers using different patterns of alarms according to the distance from the obstruction.
