Sensational safety

Protective and preventative safety

Subaru has been part of Australian family life since 1973 - and that means engineering cars that protect the whole family. Things like a ring-shaped steel safety cell that absorbs and directs the impact of the force around the cabin, rather than through it. Or the superior traction and control of Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive. We’ve even created a brilliant new way to watch the road with the revolutionary EyeSight® Driver Assist, which could prevent accidents before they happen with things like Pre-Collision Braking, Pre-Collision Steering Assist, Lane Warnings, and Brake Light Recognition.

With protection for every moment on the road, it’s no wonder the Subaru Outback achieves a five-star ANCAP* safety rating.

5 star ANCAP safety

Thanks to its clever combination of collision protection technology, the Subaru Outback has achieved the maximum 5 star ANCAP1 safety rating. This is a result of an incredibly rigorous safety innovation program, that includes seven SRS2 airbags - dual front, dual front side, curtain-style and drivers-knee - and a whiplash reducing front seat design, which provides extreme support for passengers’ head, neck and torso.

In case of an accident, the ring-shaped passenger cell redirects impact energy around your passengers, while the body frame is structured to distribute the impact forces to reduce cabin distortion. Add to that energy absorbing crumple zones. And pre-tensioner front seat belts. Now enjoy the drive with the confidence of top-rated collision protection technology.

EyeSight® Driver Assist

With cutting-edge EyeSight® Driver Assist technology, it’s reassuring to know your Subaru Outback is always watching out for you and your family. The system assists and keeps you safe in multiple ways: Pre-Collision Braking System delivers automatic braking to help avoid or reduce the severity of detected frontal accident impacts.

Pre-Collision Steering Assist applies greater steering assistance when you attempt to steer away from a detected collision ahead.

If the Outback’s EyeSight® Driver Assist technology senses lane sway or lane departure, it’ll warn you.

When the car in front of you moves at a green light, Lead Vehicle Start Alert lets you know it’s time to go. So the driver behind you doesn't have to.

3 point A/ELR rear seat belts

Subaru has you covered, with each rear passenger’s seatbelt coming with an Automatic/ Emergency Locking Retractor (A/ ELR). The A/ ELR has an additional locking mode, “Automatic Locking Retractor (ALR) mode”, intended to secure a child restraint system, in conjunction with our rear seat ISOFIX anchor points.

With 2 rear seat ISOFIX anchor points, the Subaru Outback makes loading up any member of the family a breeze.

Driver assistance

Sudden stopping. Surprise roadworks and hairpin turns. Subaru Outback is ready for urban conditions with its electronic driver assist system called Vehicle Dynamics Control (VDC). Featuring a range of stability and braking technologies, the VDC system steps in to help maintain your safety in extreme situations.

Constantly analysing through an array of sensors, VDC includes:

Electronic Stability Control: Helps you gain control if you unexpectedly understeer or oversteer, by applying brakes, reducing engine power and distributing torque.

Traction Control System: Helps you minimise your wheel slip by reducing engine power.

Limited Slip Device: Helps you maintain control by transferring power from the wheels that slip to the wheels that grip.

Anti-lock Braking System: Helps you stay in control by minimising stopping distance and maintaining vehicle control under brakes.

Electronic Brake Force Distribution: Helps keep you safe by controlling the braking pressure to the front and rear wheels all the time. Brake Assist: Helps you in emergency situations by maximising stopping power.
