From features like the control and handling of Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive to an extensive protection system, your safety is always at the forefront of Subaru design.
Subaru products marketed and distributed in the United States have also elicited favorable test studies from the IIHS. The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) is an independent, nonprofit scientific and educational organization dedicated to reducing the losses — deaths, injuries and property damage — from crashes on the nation’s roads.
4-WHEEL INDEPENDENT SUSPENSION
Every Subaru vehicle features a 4-wheel fully independent suspension system, helping to smooth out those bumpy back roads and give taut responsiveness to handling the rigors of the urban jungle. So you’ll always feel in touch with the road while hardly feeling it at all.
ADVANCED PROTECTION SYSTEM
Every Subaru features an array of airbags including front, front seat side pelvis/torso, side-curtain and driver’s knee airbags. The advanced system uses an array of sensors to help deploy the airbags in the most effective way possible.
The ring-shaped reinforcement frame is designed to shield and protect in a collision. Made of high-tensile strength steel, it directs impact energy around the passenger compartment, rather than through it.
The Subaru Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive system is designed to optimize both traction and balance. The entire system lies along the centerline of the vehicle, balancing weight distribution between the two sides to help provide optimal performance and control. Subaru Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive continually keeps the power routed to all four wheels, ensuring outstanding grip in snow, rain, or rough terrain. Thanks to its exceptionally balanced layout, you can count on a solid connection with the road and an engaged, responsive drive.
The horizontal layout of the SUBARU BOXER® engine allows for a low center of gravity for improved response. It also sits low in the vehicle, helping it to drive under the chassis in a front-end collision and protect the passenger area.
Standard on: All models.
EYESIGHT® DRIVER ASSIST
The available EyeSight® Driver Assist Technology monitors traffic movement, optimizes cruise control, warns you when you’re swaying outside your lane, and can help keep you in it. It can even help slow down the car when danger is lurking. Another way Subaru designs vehicles with your safety in mind.
Available on: 2.5i Premium, 2.5i Limited, 3.6R Limited.
VEHICLE DYNAMICS CONTROL
Vehicle Dynamics Control (VDC), a stability control system, automatically senses steering and braking inputs to help keep the vehicle on the driver’s intended path.
