Subaru is constantly looking for better ways to keep the occupants of its vehicles as safe as possible. It has announced that there have been several upgrades to the Eyesight safety system that will be present in the upcoming 2016 Subaru Outback. This system is set in place to reduce the risk of an accident or minimize its severity if an accident does occur. The radar system will now allow for detection of the Outback’s rear side. The company knows that drivers who do not pay attention to their blind spot are at a greater risk of an accident. The blind spot detection, lane change assist, and rear cross traffic alert work together to assure that the driver is safe and the conditions are adequate for a person to maneuver into a different lane. The 2016 Subaru Outback will be available at Pine Belt Subaru in the near future.
