Subaru’s EyeSight Tech Said To Reduce Crashes By Nearly 2/3

According to a Japanese traffic accident survey, Subaru’s EyeSight collision avoidance tech is responsible for a 61% reduction in crashes.

The numbers also revealed that vehicles equipped with EyeSight had 84% fewer rear-end collisions than those that didn’t have the system, between 2010 and 2014. Furthermore, this advanced system led to 62% fewer vehicle-to-vehicle collisions and a 49% reduction in vehicle-to-pedestrian crashes.

EyeSight is fitted as standard to every Subaru Outback model sold in the UK with a Lineartronic (CVT) transmission, and acts as a “second pair of eyes” for drivers by monitoring the road ahead. The system uses two color cameras located on either side of the rear view mirror, detecting the presence of other vehicles, pedestrians, cyclists and other hazards up to 110 meters (360 feet) ahead.

Overall, EyeSight incorporates six different technologies, namely Pre-collision Braking, Pre-collision Throttle Management, Adaptive Cruise Control, Lane Departure & Sway Warning, Pre-collision Steering Assist and Lead Vehicle Start Alert.

Thanks to its EyeSight system, the Subaru Outback managed to score a maximum 5-star EuroNCAP safety rating, while also receiving a ‘Top Safety Pick+’ rating from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS), as well as the top ‘Advanced Safety Vehicle-Plus’ rating from the Japan NCAP tests.
