Subaru Rear Vehicle Detection

Subaru Rear Vehicle Detection is a suite of driver-assist safety technologies that maximize driver awareness and deliver peace of mind. The features include: Blind Spot Detection and Lane Change Assist, Rear Cross Traffic Alert, and Rear Vision Camera.

Blind Spot Detection and Lane Change Assist: The Blind Spot Detection system warns you of any vehicle or hazard that's detected in your blind spot. As for the Lane Change Assist system, it will alert you if a vehicle is detected in a neighboring lane so you only pass when it's safe. This feature is available on select Subaru Legacy, Outback, Crosstrek, WRX, Forester and Impreza models.

Rear Cross Traffic Alert: Using radar sensors, the Rear Cross Traffic Alert feature will warn you of any traffic approaching from the side. Whether you're backing out of your driveway, or into a tight parking spot, this feature will help you stay safe and protect your Subaru. The Rear Cross Traffic Alert feature is available on select Subaru Legacy, Outback, Crosstrek, WRX, Forester and Impreza models.

Rear Vision Camera: The Rear Vision Camera is positioned to help you avoid potential hazards that are otherwise undetectable when relying on your side or rearview mirrors. This feature is standard on select Subaru Legacy, Outback, Impreza, Crosstrek, WRX, Forester and BRZ models.

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.

Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive

Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive is one of Subaru's most recognized features. It seamlessly creates uniform stability and an optimal distribution of power for improved traction in wet, dry, snowy or off-road conditions. While here in California we experience more sun than anything, this system will still come in handy when it rains or when you take your Subaru on that cross-country roadtrip or to Grandma's house for the holidays.

All Subaru Impreza, Crosstrek, WRX, Forester, Outback and Legacy models come standard with SYMMETRICAL ALL-WHEEL Drive.

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.
