Subaru’s collision avoidance technology significantly reduces pedestrian injuries and deaths.
A study published by the Highway Loss Data Institute (HLDI) finds that Subaru’s EyeSight Driver Assist Technology, a front crash-prevention system, is effective at preventing collisions with pedestrians.
The HLDI found that Subaru vehicles equipped with the first-generation EyeSight system, introduced for 2013, show a 33-percent reduction in pedestrian-related insurance claims, and models with the current-generation EyeSight system, which was introduced for 2015, show a 41-percent reduction.
“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.”
