Subaru Outback grabs another safety gong

The Subura Outback has been named as a Top Safety Pick+ by the US-based Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS), due in no small part to the EyeSight system which is fitted to all UK spec models with the Lineartronic CVT gearbox. Subaru described the technology as a ‘second pair of eyes’ for the driver, using stereo colour cameras to monitor the road ahead for potential hazards. EyeSight combines Pre-collision Braking, Pre-collision Throttle Management, Adaptive Cruise Control, Lane Departure & Sway Warning, Pre-collision Steering Assist and Lead Vehicle Start Alert programmes.
