Modern vehicles are filled with technologies to make our lives easier. From infotainment systems that allow drivers to play music through their speakers to driver assistance technologies that help prevent or mitigate the effects of collisions, you're sure to find tons of technology among new vehicles that makes any drive easier. This is just as if not more true with Subaru vehicles as it is with vehicles from other makes like Honda and Toyota. If you're searching for a safe car around Boston, Cambridge, Natick, Newton, or Wakefield, MA, then you should consider a new Subaru with EyeSight™ Technology.

About Subaru EyeSight™

This innovative suite of Subaru technology, which is somewhat similar to Toyota TSS-P technology and Honda Sensing technology, consists of pre-collision throttle management, adaptive cruise control, and lane departure and sway warning with lane keep assist. EyeSight™ also includes pre-collision braking to alert and flash a visual warning if there's the danger of a collision, stopping the car if needed or applying more force if the driver isn't applying enough pressure. Why is all this important? Aside from helping you avoid collisions, Subaru cars and SUVs that are equipped with Eyesight® receive the highest possible rating for front crash prevention from the IIHS.

EyeSight™ Is There For You Always

Subaru EyeSight™ is one of those features you want to have just in case the worse case scenario - you or your family being involved in an accident is imminent. Hopefully, you'll never have the chance to experience any EyeSight™ technology in action. If you do, however, you can consider yourself not just lucky, but also intelligent, for having chosen a car so proactively that was designed to keep you and the ones you love most safe. Because after all, Subaru EyeSight™ is part of the Subaru Love Promise.

Subaru EyeSight Driver Assist Technology Vs Toyota Safety Sense & Honda Sensing

For many drivers all around the greater Boston area, advanced safety features are often the top priority when searching for a new car. And like many drivers in the market for a new vehicle you are doing a little bit of research to make sure you get the best vehicle for you. Not only should you compare things like fuel efficiency, features, and interior space. You should also compare advanced safety packages because not all are created equal. Toyota Safety Sense and Honda Sensing are two other driver assist packages that are available. But how well do they compare to Subaru's highly awarded EyeSight Driver Assist Technology?


Subaru EyeSight Features:

  • Adaptive Cruise Control: The Adaptive Cruise Control feature of EyeSight helps Natick drivers maintain a safe following distance from the vehicle in front of you. Drivers can choose the distance they want to preserve and EyeSight will keep that distance while adjusting speed with the flow traffic.
  • Lane Keep Assist & Sway Warning: EyeSight uses two discreetly placed cameras to monitor your position in the road and will alert you with audible and visual alerts if you begin to sway out of your lane. EyeSight will also help safely guide you back to the center of your lane to avoid a collision.
  • Pre-Collision Braking: Sometimes Belmont drivers don't see a stopped vehicle ahead in time to step on the brakes to avoid a collision. Accidents happen but EyeSight Pre-Collision Braking is always watching the road ahead and will alert you to a potential frontal impact. If you do not apply the brakes in time EyeSight will automatically apply full braking force to prevent a collision or reduce impact.
  • Pre-Collision Throttle Management: The last feature of EyeSight works by detecting objects in front of the Subaru that you are likely to hit. Pre-Collision Throttle Management will reduce power from the engine to minimize collision impact force and frontal impact damage.

    Competition Features

  • Toyota Safety Sense - Pedestrian Detection, Lane Departure Alert, Automatic High Beams and Dynamic Radar Cruise Control
  • Honda Sensing - Collision Mitigation Braking System, Road Departure Mitigation System, Adaptive Cruise Control, Lane Keeping Assist System, Traffic Sign Recognition

    When first comparing the three safety packages Wakefield drivers will notice that they are a couple of similar features across the board. Like adaptive cruise control and a lane keeping system. But one feature that is exclusive to Subaru EyeSight is the Pre-Collision Throttle Management. Which is a helpful feature when the car in front begins to accelerate and then suddenly slows.


    One plus for Toyota Safety Sense is that it is standard on every vehicle in the lineup. Honda Sensing, however, is still only standard on upper-level trims or is available for an additional cost. For the 2019 lineup the Subaru Forester, Outback, Legacy, and Ascent all come equipped with EyeSight. The Impreza, WRX, and Crosstrek that utilize an automatic transmission are all available to be equipped with EyeSight.


    EyeSight Awards & Accolades

    Don't just take our word that Subaru EyeSight is the best driver assist safety package on the road today. Subaru models equipped with EyeSight have been constantly ranked as the safest vehicles on the road. The IIHS, Insurance Institute of Highway Safety, gave Subaru models with EyeSight the highest possible front crash prevention rating of superior. EyeSight has also been found to reduce rear-end collisions with injuries by up to 85%. In an IIHS study, EyeSight was found to have cut the rate of pedestrian-related insurance claims by 35%.
