What Extra Steps do Subaru Models Take to Keep Passengers Safe?

There's a lot to consider when purchasing a new car and it can vary a lot depending on how you want to drive, but there's one area that every driver should prioritize: their safety. Cars are safer than ever thanks to innovations found throughout the frame and airbag systems, but the emergence of driver-assist features also play a big part, and Subaru models are at the forefront of all these important areas. Check out the video from Subaru below, and keep reading to learn more.

What makes Subaru models some of the safest on the road today?

EyeSight® Driver Assist Technology

This suite of safety features is available on every 2018 Subaru except the BRZ sports car, and models with this package received the highest possible front crash prevention rating from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS), one the premier auto safety councils. This package includes:

  • Adaptive Cruise Control
  • Lane Keep Assist with Sway Warning
  • Pre-Collision Braking
  • Pre-Collision Throttle Management

On top of these features, several models are available with other features like blind-spot monitoring, rear cross traffic alert, and auto high beams, which do even more to warn you of potential accidents.


The Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive system found standard on most Subaru models, again the BRZ is the only holdout, has received praise for its ability to provide traction and control in adverse road conditions, which are very important for avoiding accidents. However, if an accident were to occur, Subaru models are built from high-strength steel and feature an advanced airbag system, which both absorb impact force.
