The Subaru Forester has been updated in the UK to include Subaru’s ‘EyeSight’ suite of safety technology to reduce the chances of accident and injury.
The Subaru Forester may not be the trendiest of cars, but it’s a brilliant workhorse that’ll keep on doing its thing forever. And now it’s very safe as well as very robust.
Subaru has announced that it is now fitting its clever EyeSight’ technology suite to make the Forester an extremely safe car.
EyeSight acts as a “second pair of eyes” for the driver, and is clever enough to avoid and significantly reduce the severity of accidents.
It uses two stereo camera, one on each side of the rear-view mirror, to capture 3D images with absolute precision and can distinguish vehicles, cycles, motorbikes, lane markings and road furniture, and determine road conditions.
It also utilises Adaptive Cruise, Pre-Collision Braking, Pre-Collision Throttle Management, Lane Departure and Sway warning, Lane Keep Assist and Vehicle Start Alert to determine what action is needed.
Subaru say fitting eyeSight has been shown to cut accidents by 61 per cent, and that it has been developed individuality to deal with the particular road environment in the UK.
EyeSight will be fitted to the Forester XE Lineartronic and XE Premium Lineartronic models from October.
