Advanced Safety Package: High Beam Assist (HBA)*
High Beam Assist increases visibility and safety when driving at night by toggling the Outback's high beams on and off automatically, depending on driving conditions.
Vehicle Dynamics Control System
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 turn moves the vehicle 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.
Active Torque Vectoring
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 sharp turns and handling more precise. In combination with the Vehicle Dynamics Control System, it helps to keep you out of harm’s way, granting you a comforting sense of security.
We adjusted the frame to increase your visibility and decrease your blind spot area. We also installed front quarter windows with door-mounted side mirrors to reduce the front blind spot for increased forward visibility.
Every Subaru goes above and beyond common practice when it comes to your safety. In the event of a head-on collision, your Outback’s SUBARU BOXER engine and gearbox are designed to avoid moving into the cabin for your protection.
Supplemental Restraint System (SRS)* Airbags
Front SRS* airbags, front side SRS* airbags, curtain SRS* airbags, and knee SRS* airbags come standard on the Outback to give all passengers a higher level of protection in the event of a collision.
Ring-shaped Reinforcement Frame
The Ring-shaped Reinforcement Frame strengthens 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.
Head Restraints on Front Seats
Adjustable for both height and angle, head restraints are designed to accommodate passengers of different sizes and comfort preferences.
Front Seatbelts with Pretensioners and Load Limiters
Height-adjustable front seatbelts feature pretensioners to hold passengers firmly in place, and load limiters that ease peak forces to the chest.
