SETTINGS AND UPDATES 98 EYESIGHT® OVERVIEW Your Subaru features a variety of safety systems that are the culmination of everything Subaru Engineers know about safety. These systems are referred to as “Driver Assist Technologies” and add confidence to every trip you and your passengers take. Working together, these systems provide enhanced awareness, safety, and convenience in front, to the sides, and behind your Subaru. Subaru Driver Assist Technologies include: • EyeSight® Driver Assist Technology • Rear-Vision Camera • Pre-Collision Braking • Automatic Emergency Steering • Blind-Spot Detection (BSD) • Rear Cross-Traffic Alert (RCTA) • Reverse Automatic Braking (RAB) • High Beam Assist (HBA) • Lane Departure Prevention • Steering Responsive Headlights (SRH) EYESIGHT 99 OPERATION EyeSight® is a driver assist technology that uses dual stereo cameras, and an additional wide-angle mono camera, to identify vehicles in front, pedestrians, traffic lanes, or other objects. If need be, the EyeSight® system can apply the brakes and/or reduce engine power to help avoid or reduce the severity of a collision. During these events, the system will provide audible and visual alerts to assist you in making decisions. Since the characteristics and limitations of the EyeSight® cameras are similar to human eyes, it is important that the cameras, windshield, and area in front of the cameras are treated with special care. Please refer to “Care and Limitations” on page 116 in this Getting Started Guide for more details. EyeSight® Cameras (inside) EyeSight® Cameras (outside) EYESIGHT 100 FUNCTIONS The EyeSight® system features several distinct functions designed to provide extra awareness, improve safety, reduce fatigue, and add peace of mind every time you drive your Subaru. EyeSight® functions include: • Pre-Collision Braking (PCB) • Pre-Collision Brake Assist • Automatic Emergency Steering • Pre-Collision Throttle Management • Lane Departure Warning (LDW) • Lane Sway Warning • Lane Departure Prevention • Advanced Adaptive Cruise Control with Lane Centering • Conventional Cruise Control • Lead Vehicle Start Alert Pre-Collision Braking This function helps prevent or minimize a frontal collision with another vehicle, pedestrian, or other objects by providing visual and audible warnings. Warnings are displayed in the Combination Meter Display (CMD) with audible beeps. If you take no corrective action, the system automatically reduces engine power and applies the brakes with increasing force to help prevent or minimize the collision. This system can be turned on or off in the Center Information Display (CID) (see page 110). EYESIGHT 101 Pre-Collision Brake Assist This function activates when the Pre-Collision Braking System is activated, the system determines that there is a high risk of collision with an obstacle in front, and you apply the brakes. The function assists by applying additional pressure to the braking system to decrease stopping distance. This system can be turned on or off in the Center Information Display (CID) (see page 110). Automatic Emergency Steering (if equipped) The Automatic Emergency Steering function activates when the Pre-Collision Braking System has activated and there is an extremely high possibility of a collision with an obstacle ahead. When traveling at 50 mph or slower, the function uses the EyeSight® cameras and rear radar to determine if there is enough space to safely avoid a collision with the object ahead, detecting lane markings and making sure that there are no other objects in front as well as behind, such as oncoming vehicles or pedestrians. Once activated, Automatic Emergency Steering provides automatic steering support to avoid the collision while staying within the lane. After a collision is avoided, the system continues steering assist and brake control to maintain the vehicle in its lane until the vehicle stops. This function can be turned on or off by activating or deactivating the Pre-Collision Braking system (see page 110) or BSD/RCTA (see page 113). Pre-Collision Throttle Management This function is designed to help prevent you from unintentionally accelerating into a stopped vehicle or other obstacle by reducing engine power. Warnings are displayed in the Combination Meter Display (CMD) with audible beeps. Pre-Collision Throttle Management is helpful when: • You unintentionally place the select lever in the “D” position instead of the “R” position and start to accelerate toward a parked car, wall or parking structure. • While you are at a stop, the vehicle ahead of you accelerates, but then suddenly slows down or stops as you begin to accelerate. This system can be turned on or off in the Center Information Display (CID) (see page 110). EYESIGHT 102 Lane Departure Warning This function provides audible and visual warnings if you are about to depart your lane of travel. Using the EyeSight® camera, the Lane Departure Warning function identifies lane markings when traveling at speeds of approximately 30 mph or greater. These warnings are displayed in the Combination Meter Display (CMD) with audible beeps. Lane Departure Warning does not provide any corrective actions. You can turn this system on or off in the Center Information Display (CID) (see page 109). Lane Sway Warning This function detects repetitive or unusual side-to-side vehicle movement within a lane of travel that may indicate a drowsy or inattentive driver. Using the EyeSight® camera, the Lane Sway Warning function activates to identify lane markings when traveling at speeds of approximately 37 mph or greater and deactivates when vehicle speed falls below 25 mph. Warnings are displayed in the Combination Meter Display (CMD) with audible beeps. Lane Sway Warning does not provide any corrective actions. You can turn this system on or off in the Center Information Display (CID) (see page 109). EYESIGHT 103 Lane Departure Prevention This function provides steering assistance to keep your Subaru in its lane of travel when cruising on expressways, freeways, and interstate highways. Using the EyeSight® cameras, the Lane Departure Prevention Function identifies lane markings when traveling at speeds of approximately 37 mph or greater. Operate the Center Information Display (CID) to turn on the Lane Departure Prevention Function by selecting “All Functions” or “Lane Departure Prevention Function Only” on the “Lane Departure Prevention Function” screen of the EyeSight® settings. As you drive the vehicle above the minimum speed, white lane marking graphics on the CMD indicate that right and/or left lane markings have been successfully identified by the EyeSight® camera. If your Subaru is about to depart the driving lane, the system assists steering by gently guiding the vehicle back into your lane. When the system is actively providing assistance, the lane indicator on the side where the Lane Departure Prevention Function activated changes from white to yellow. Advanced Adaptive Cruise Control with Lane Centering Advanced Adaptive Cruise Control is a driving support system intended to reduce the burden on you when driving on an expressway (including during congestion and when driving at high speed). Advanced Adaptive Cruise Control and Lane Centering work together to assist you by automatically controlling the accelerator, brake, and steering. EYESIGHT 104 Advanced Adaptive Cruise Control This system provides cruise control with the ability to keep a safe distance from the car in front of you. Using the EyeSight® camera, the Advanced Adaptive Cruise Control function identifies vehicles in front of you in the same lane, and your vehicle follows the vehicle in front (up to the maximum of your set speed). While following, your vehicle will automatically maintain a following distance that corresponds to the speed of the vehicle in front. You can turn the Advanced Adaptive Cruise Control on or off using the Adaptive Cruise Control On/Off button on the right side of the steering wheel (see page 107). Once the system is turned on, a white Adaptive Cruise Control icon will be displayed on the Combination Meter Display (CMD). When all the operational conditions are met, “READY” appears underneath the Adaptive Cruise Control icon. To set Advanced Adaptive Cruise Control, push down the “SET/–” switch on the right side of the steering wheel. The CMD will indicate a target speed and the icon will turn green. This speed can be adjusted up or down using the “RES +/SET -” switch (see page 107). Lane Centering The stereo camera detects lane markings (including Botts’ dots) of the lane and the lead vehicle, and the system assists the steering operation by working with the electric power steering to help keep your vehicle in its lane when driving on expressways, freeways and interstate highways. This function can be used by pressing the Lane Centering switch when Advanced Adaptive Cruise Control is activated. When driving at speeds of 0 mph to approximately 90 mph, the system detects the lane markings and/or the lead vehicle and assists you with steering in order to keep the vehicle close to the center of the lane. EYESIGHT 105 Conventional Cruise Control Conventional Cruise Control maintains a constant traveling speed you set, but it does not adapt to the other vehicles in front of you. To activate Conventional Cruise Control, press the Adaptive Cruise Control On/Off button to set Advanced Adaptive Cruise Control into standby status. Then, with Advanced Adaptive Cruise Control in standby status, press and hold the “Increase Distance” or “Decrease Distance” button on the steering wheel for approximately two seconds. The Cruise Control indicator on the Combination Meter Display (CMD) will change from the Adaptive Cruise Control icon to the Conventional Cruise Control icon, and the “READY” indicator appears when all operational conditions are met. Use the accelerator to reach the desired speed, then use the RES +/SET – switch to set the vehicle speed. Lead Vehicle Start Alert This function will provide a visual and audible alert when a stopped vehicle in front of you begins to move, and your vehicle remains stationary. Warnings are displayed in the Combination Meter Display (CMD) with audible beeps. Lead Vehicle Start Alert is helpful in situations where you may become temporarily distracted at a traffic light, and the vehicle ahead begins to move.

EYESIGHT 110 REAR-VISION CAMERA This function provides a clear view of the area behind the vehicle to help avoid obstacles. Using a wide-angle camera mounted on the rear of the vehicle, an image is automatically displayed on the multimedia screen when you place the select lever in the “R” position. The displayed image features a centerline indicator, colored distance markers, and dynamic guidelines that move as the steering wheel is turned. BLIND SPOT DETECTION (BSD) / REAR CROSS TRAFFIC ALERT (RCTA) (if equipped) This system uses radar sensors mounted behind the rear bumper on the left and right sides that warn you if another vehicle is sensed in your blind spots. These functions provide additional awareness when changing lanes or driving in reverse. Blind Spot Detection (BSD) Blind Spot Detection senses if a vehicle is traveling at the same relative speed in your blind spot and provides a visual warning. If the system detects a vehicle in your blind spot, the BSD/RCTA approach indicator light in the corresponding side mirror frame illuminates. If you operate the turn signal lever in the direction the BSD/RCTA approach indicator light is illuminated, the system provides an additional level of warning by rapidly flashing the BSD/RCTA approach indicator light. DRIVER ASSIST TECHNOLOGIES 111 Lane Change Assist (LCA) Lane Change Assist (LCA) provides an additional level of protection by warning you of rapidly approaching vehicles in the neighboring lanes. If LCA detects a vehicle approaching at a high speed in the neighboring lanes, the BSD/RCTA approach indicator light in the corresponding side mirror frame illuminates. If you operate the turn signal lever in the direction the BSD/RCTA approach indicator light is illuminated, the system rapidly flashes the BSD/RCTA approach indicator light. Rear Cross Traffic Alert (RCTA) This function detects a vehicle approaching from either side as you reverse, helping you check the rear and side areas of the vehicle when moving backward. If RCTA detects a vehicle approaching from either side while moving backward, the system provides visual and audible warnings: The BSD/RCTA approach indicator light(s) on the side mirror(s) flash, the BSD/RCTA warning indicator appears in the upper corner of the Rear-Vision Camera display, and a warning buzzer sounds.

DRIVER ASSIST TECHNOLOGIES 113 HIGH BEAM ASSIST (HBA) (if equipped) This function uses the EyeSight® cameras to automatically switch the headlights between high and low beam settings, enhancing safety for both you and other drivers on the road. To activate High Beam Assist, set the headlight control switch to the “AUTO” position and push the headlight lever forward to the high beam position. The green HBA indicator illuminates on the Combination Meter. HBA automatically activates the high beams when the forward area is dark, there are no preceding/oncoming vehicles or sharp curves in the road, and your speed is approximately 20 mph or greater. When a preceding/oncoming vehicle is detected, the forward area is bright, your speed decreases to 10 mph or less, or the EyeSight® system is malfunctioning or is temporarily stopped, HBA automatically switches to low beams. STEERING RESPONSIVE HEADLIGHTS (SRH) (if equipped) The Steering Responsive Headlights (SRH) system aims the headlight beams in the direction you are steering, improving visibility at corners and intersections when driving at night. You can turn the SRH system on or off in the Center Information Display through the “Car Settings” icon. For more information, please refer to “Instruments and Controls” in your Owner’s Manual. DRIVER ASSIST TECHNOLOGIES 114 REVERSE AUTOMATIC BRAKING (RAB) (if equipped) This system uses four rear bumper mounted sonar sensors to detect objects when moving between 1 and 9 mph in reverse. RAB uses the Rear-Vision Camera image to display colored proximity alerts when an object is detected. As an object becomes closer to the rear of your vehicle, audible beeps provide additional awareness in progressive levels. If RAB determines that a collision with an object is possible, the system can automatically apply the brakes to help prevent or minimize the impact.
