While there are many new technologies out there that increase vehicle safety, Subaru seems to be headed down the right path with “EyeSight”, a system that not only keeps an eye on whether you’re still in your lane, how you signal to change lanes, but also makes cruise control easier, and reduces the risk of rear ending someone – in an emergency, it will hit the brakes for you.

Having 20/13 eyesight is beyond the sharpness most of us can claim. EyeSight driver assist in 2013 Subaru Outback and Legacy models is easier attained. It’s available in an option package in 2.5i Limited and 3.6R Limited trim now, with planned integration into other models down the road.
After announcing its U.S. debut at the 2012 New York Auto Show, Subaru invited us to the Outer Banks of North Carolina to experience the system firsthand and get a taste of how Outback owners utilize their cars. In other words, we didn’t drive to the mall or soccer practice.
Instead, between jaunts on four-wheel-drive-only beach routes, EyeSight impressed us with its myriad of safety functions on duty through a pair of cameras on either side of the rearview mirror. Adaptive cruise control maintains a preset distance between the vehicle ahead, which came in handy following skittish drivers on the area’s heavily-policed roads.
