Visit our San Diego, CA Subaru dealership today to get started on finding the safe and sensible new vehicle that works for all your travels.

Subaru EyeSight Gets You Started Safely

Outside of a few special manual-transmission setups of the sporty WRX and BRZ, and with the base level of the Impreza, pretty much every new Subaru comes with the Subaru EyeSight safety suite, a collection of smart driver aids that watch out for you from practically every angle. Most base level editions include features like automatic emergency braking, forward collision alert, lane departure warning and more, with higher trims adding blind-spot monitoring with rear cross-traffic alert among others. These systems can be deactivated if you prefer driving without alerts and warnings, but you'll find they're incredibly helpful for your travels in congested San Diego area traffic.

In addition, most new Subaru models use a standard rearview camera, which either works on its own to help you when backing out of a parking space, or connects with the high-end features like blind-spot detection and rear cross-traffic alert.

Starlink Services are Available For Added Security With Your Subaru

The touchscreen-controlled infotainment features make up the bulk of the Subaru Starlink in-vehicle services, allowing for easy smartphone integration for listening to music, podcasts, audiobooks and more, while you'll also have features for weather, traffic, navigation and more. Additionally, Subaru models that have the full suite of Starlink services provides additional security such as vehicle tracking, alerts to emergency services and more, with the brand developing ways for you to access some features from a connected smartphone device, even when you're not inside your model.

Protective Systems

There are a number of reasons why Subaru vehicles stand out from the competition; two of them being design and engineering. Every Subaru is built with a ring-shaped reinforcement frame to help provide high-impact protection for passengers. Subaru models also equip an advanced airbag system with eight strategically placed airbags. The engine's low placement design is also intended to protect the passenger area. For additional protection, Subaru Forester, Outback and Crosstrek models also come equipped with an advanced rollover sensor.

Maintain Traction and Control With the Standard Subaru Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive System

We're lucky here in San Diego as we avoid brutal winter snow and ice storms. But when you do travel up north during the winter months, your Subaru will be prepared for any challenge thrown its way. That's because of the Subaru Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive system, which is standard on all models, save for the rear-wheel drive BRZ sports coupe, is set up to balance your traction and control on any kind of surface. If you like driving on open areas of the beach or go off-roading elsewhere in the San Diego area, certain setups of crossovers like the Crosstrek, Forester, Outback and Ascent will do the trick, while the standard AWD system is a nice feature to have with a smaller sedan or hatchback like the Impreza or Legacy.

Control and Braking Systems

Subaru's are designed to deliver a smooth ride with confident handling. With Vehicle Dynamics Control (VDC) and Active Torque Vectoring, you can stay on your intended path and handle whatever your journey throws at you with ease. As for the Anti-Lock Braking System (ABS), it's designed to maintain tractive contact with the road to help prevent wheel lockup. The Electronic Brake-force Distribution (EBD) feature automatically optimizes the distribution of force applied to both the front and the rear wheels. Further, the Brake Assist system will apply the brakes in an emergency situation.

Vehicles with VDC, ABS, EBD and Brake Assist include all Subaru Impreza, Crosstrek, WRX, Forester, Outback and Legacy models. Vehicles with Active Torque Vectoring include select Subaru WRX, Outback, Legacy and Impreza models.

Smart Design and Engineering Goes a Long Way in Your Subaru

Finally, the way each and every Subaru is designed will keep you and your passengers well-protected. That's because this brand designs every one of its vehicles in a way that perfectly balances and centers everything from its engine block to its symmetrical AWD system. That means in the event of a collision you can't avoid, you and your passengers will be better protected, while the full airbag systems in every new Subaru will help out greatly as well.
