Why the 2015 Subaru Outback will be the safest wagon on the planet

The all-new 2015 Subaru Outback wagon will make its world debut at the New York International Auto Show 2014. Why will it be the safest wagon on the planet?

The all-new 2015 Subaru Outback makes its global premiere at NYIAS 2014 on April 17 and it’s coming with a safety system that will set the wagon apart from the competition. What will make the 2015 Outback the safest wagon on the planet? Subaru and parent company Fuji Heavy Industries (FHI) have developed a new-generation safety system called EyeSight. What makes this safety system special?

2015 Outback will come with the new-generation Subaru EyeSight Safety system. It will integrate Adaptive Cruise Control, Pre-Collision Braking and Vehicle Lane Departure Warning. This advanced safety system uses Subaru-developed stereo camera technology that was rated highest in front crash prevention system by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS).

Here’s how it will work on the new 2015 Outback. The new-generation Subaru EyeSight driver-assist system puts the driver at ease with more convenience and greater protection. The new system is effective in preventing vehicle mishaps and especially driver distracted errors. Subaru continues to enhance its driving assist technology "EyeSight" which is based on recognition abilities using a stereo camera system. The system processes the images gained from its stereo camera and recognizes the object before an accident occurs.

The 2015 Outback will be available with a “full-perimeter preventive safety” system. The rear radar system offers three functions. Blind Spot Detection detects vehicles behind the C-pillars and in other blind spots; Lane Change Assist detects approaching vehicles when changing lanes, and Rear Cross Traffic Alert detects close vehicles while reversing, such as out of a parking space or driveway. LED indicators on the side mirrors alert the driver. Rear Cross Traffic Alert uses an indicator in the rear view camera display.

FHI’s recent development of the next-generation "EyeSight" shows just how committed the Subaru brand is to safety. And they are doing it across their whole lineup of multi-use vehicles. Building safe vehicles is not new for the Japanese automaker. They began their own independent crash tests in the 1960s before there was any official testing being conducted.

Subaru has enhanced the already excellent EyeSight system which will begin arriving in all new Subaru models starting next year. The new 2015 Subaru Outback wagon will use the advanced system which is better than any other safety system in existence today. This will make the 2015 Subaru Outback that debuts at NYIAS next week the safest wagon on the planet.
