Vehicle Dynamics Control System monitors and analyses if the vehicle is following the driver’s intended course via an array of sensors. If a tyre slips or a high speed turns the vehicles off its intended path, the AWD torque distribution, engine output and brakes at each wheel are adjusted to assist in keeping the vehicle on course.
When cornering, Active Torque Vectoring applies the brakes and distributes less torque to the inside wheels and more torque to the outside wheels. It helps make a sharp turn and handling more precise. In combination with Vehicle Dynamics Control System, it helps to keep you out of harm’s way, granting you a comforting sense of security.
The Ring-shaped Reinforcement Frames strengthen the passenger cabin from the roof to the doors, pillars and floor. This design helps to divert and dissipate impact energy away from the occupants in a collision. It also contributes to strengthening and lightening the chassis, leading to greater, reinforced protection.
Standard on the Outback are front SRS* airbags, plus front-side SRS* airbags, curtain SRS* airbags and knee SRS * airbags. Height-adjustable front seatbelts feature pretensioners to hold passengers firmly in place, and load limiters that ease peak forces to the chest.
