New EyeSight to help Subaru drivers avoid crashes

Owners of Subaru used cars will benefit from a unique driving assist system in future, the Japanese manufacturer has claimed.

Subaru's New EyeSight technology uses two forward-facing cameras and an alarm to alert drivers to a potential collision with a vehicle in front.

If the driver's speed is below 30 km/h and he or she takes no action to slow the vehicle, New EyeSight will apply the brakes automatically to avoid a collision and minimise damage, Subaru claims.

In slow-moving traffic, the system will halt the car and not allow it to move until the vehicle in front has moved forward, while the manufacturer also believes motorway cruising will also become safer by maintaining the correct stopping distance.

New EyeSight will be available initially on Japanese production cars later this month.

Earlier this week, Subaru announced that its Legacy model had been officially named Japan's safest car in the country's New Car Assessment Programme.
