Subaru Eyesight TechnologyWith the advent of a lot of technology, it can sometimes seem like the very technology that is supposed to be helping you—making your life easier, better, and safer—is actually fighting you. Not EyeSight, however. That’s what Subaru calls its autonomous technology.

Subaru EyeSight technology works for you—and with you—to create a truly safer driving experience. There’s data to prove it too. Subaru reports that all of the 2015 models equipped with EyeSight technology (including Forester, Impreza, Legacy, Outback, and XV Crosstrek), “received the highest possible score in front crash prevention by the IIHS.”

EyeSight encompasses a number of different features, all designed to preempt a collision. There’s Adaptive Cruise Control, which works just like traditional cruise except your Subaru will use monitoring and braking to maintain a driver-inputted distance between you and the car in front of you.

EyeSight uses cameras to monitor any possible dangerous conditions as they arise. For instance, if you happen to stray out of your lane, your Subaru will warn you through the Lane Departure System. If a frontal impact appears imminent, EyeSight will issue warnings and implement emergency braking if needed.

EyeSight is named that because that’s just what it does. It’s a helpful extra set of eyes to ensure that you and your family get to your destination safely. We at Hassett Automotive would be happy to provide that safety for you, so take a test drive today.
