Subaru Eyesight Reduces Pedestrian Collisions

Subaru Eyesight Reduces Pedestrian Collisions! According to the Highway Loss Data Institute, current generation Subaru EyeSight reduces pedestrian-related insurance claims by 41% compared to vehicles without the front crash-prevention system. Currently EyeSight includes Pre-Collision Braking and Throttle Management; Adaptive Cruise Control; Lane Departure and Sway Warning; and Lane Keep Assist. For 2019, EyeSight will be standard equipment on the new 3-row Subaru Ascent SUV, Outback SUV, Legacy, and Forester SUV. 

“The data clearly show that EyeSight is eliminating many crashes, including pedestrian crashes,” says HLDI Senior Vice President Matt Moore. “Subaru has taken a good system and made it even better, it’s great to see the company moving quickly to deploy the technology through its fleet.”
This is an improvement over the first generation EyeSight system which showed a 33% reduction in pedestrian-related insurance claims. 

“We are gratified, but not surprised, that HLDI data show Subaru EyeSight can prevent crashes, including with pedestrians,” said Subaru of America President and CEO Thomas J. Doll. “Safety is paramount to Subaru, and each year we continue to improve and innovate the safety features and technology in our vehicles for our customers. Our safety technology has been a key driver behind our steady sales growth, highlighted by 77 months of consecutive month-over-month increases.”
