Exploring the Safety Features of the 2019 Subaru Outback

Two attributes for which Subaru models are most famous for are standard symmetrical all-wheel drive and the automaker’s legendary commitment to safety. Drivers from Atlanta to Alpharetta and beyond continue to choose Subaru models like the Outback for its strong build-quality, sure-footedness in inclement conditions, and long list of standard and available advanced safety features. The 2019 Outback earned a five-star safety rating from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration1, as well as the highest Top Safety Pick+ rating from the IIHS when equipped with LED headlights2.

Subaru Outback: Thoughtfully Designed for Safer Driving

The Outback features a number of PASSIVE design elements designed to enhance vehicle safety. For example:

  • The engine is mounted specifically so as not to enter the cabin in the event of a violent head-on collision.
  • The standard Supplemental Restraint System (SRS) deploys front, front side, curtain, and knee airbags to give passengers a higher degree of protection.
  • The Outbacks frame features Ring-shaped Reinforcement designed to strengthen the cabins roof, doors, pillars, and floor. This layout dissipates energy from an impact away from vehicle occupants.

Subaru Outback: Standard Subaru Eyesight Technology

Regardless of trim level, all Outback models feature the Subaru EyeSight suite of driver assistance technologies. That means Decatur and East Cobb drivers can enjoy the following features without paying extra:

  • Adaptive cruise control
  • Forward collision warning
  • Automatic emergency braking
  • Lane-departure warning
  • Lane-keeping assist

Subaru Outback: Available Driver Assistance Tech

Optional ACTIVE safety and driver assistance features include:

  • Subaru Rear Vehicle Detection: Part of the Advanced Safety Package, this system uses sensors to detect vehicles in rear blind spots and can warn of potential collision danger.
  • High Beam Assist: Part of the Advanced Safety Package, this system increases visibility by toggling high beams on and off to account for oncoming and leading vehicles.
  • Auto Vehicle Hold: This available feature holds the vehicle in place even if the brake pedal is released.
  • Vehicle Dynamics Control System & Active Torque Vectoring: This system adjusts AWD torque distribution, engine output, and braking at each wheel to help keep the vehicle on course, preventing oversteer and understeer.
