Eyesight Technology - exclusive showcase to Subaru WRX STI customers

OTE Group – Subaru recently organized an event especially for the owners of WRX and WRX STI models, to demonstrate the capabilities of the recently introduced EyeSight technology. The event was attended by about 40 owners of Subaru WRX and WRX STI models along with friends and had a chance to experience the technology firsthand also had a chance to look at the 2019 WRX and WRX STI models.

The EyeSight technology is a culmination of everything Subaru engineers know about safety, and Subaru has already sold over 1 million Eyesight-equipped vehicles worldwide.

EyeSight is Subaru’s innovative and highly acclaimed driver assist technology, delivers extremely reliable preventive safety and reduces driver burdens through features such as Pre-Collision Braking Control, Adaptive Cruise Control, and Lane Keep Assist function. Adding confidence to every trip, EyeSight monitors traffic movement, optimizes cruise control, and warns if the driver sways outside the lane. The Pre-Collision Braking feature can even apply full braking force in emergency situations, helping avoid or reduce frontal impacts. The EyeSight equipped Subaru models receive the highest possible front crash prevention rating from IIHS.

Subaru cars offer more than just driving performance. Every aspect has been engineered to ensure that the car drives safer and a number of Active & Passive Safety features have been incorporated to help the car deliver this promise to the driver. Subaru has been constantly improving the basic functions of the car, so that it responds exactly as the driver controls it. It is for this reason alone that Subaru has been working on improving every possible feature of the car to ensure better safety for drivers and passengers alike. Reliable braking performance and the use of advanced electronic components for controlling the vehicle are just some examples that have been applied to the outstanding balance already afforded by the Horizontally-Opposed Engine and Symmetrical AWD system that lie at the heart of every Subaru.

Symmetrical AWD starts with Subaru's Boxer engine, which provides a balanced weight ratio. Subaru's Boxer engine sends power to all four-wheel continuously to provide maximum stability and control. Symmetrical engine sends more power to the wheels with the most grip (traction) to reduce sliding. Dividing power among all four-wheels helps provide stability and control regardless of driving conditions, which decreases the chance of a sideways spin. The boxer engine sits horizontally, rather than vertically, which provides a balanced weight ratio during sharp turns.

Also, Subaru is the only automaker with IIHS Top Safety Picks for All Models that too for many consecutive years.
