Subaru’s EyeSight driver assistance package will now be a standard feature of all Forester models.

The manufacturer has announced that all models in the Forester range will now come with Eyesight, a system designed to minimise or avoid accidents as well as lower carbon emissions.

EyeSight’s twin stereo cameras are mounted each side of the rear-view mirror, and using image recognition to capture a precise three-dimensional environment are able to distinguish vehicles, motorbikes, bicycles, pedestrians, lane markings and road furniture to determine the general traffic conditions. It uses Adaptive Cruise Control, Pre-Collision Braking, Pre-Collision Throttle Management, Lane Departure and Sway Warning, Lane Keep Assist and Lead Vehicle Start Alert to react to the changing conditions.

Japan’s Institute for Traffic Accident Research and Data Analysis found that of Subaru vehicles involved in accidents between 2010 and 2014, EyeSight equipped models were involved in 61% accidents.

Prices for the Subaru Forester start from £28,995 on-the-road.
