The Subaru Outback is something of a legacy vehicle for the manufacturer, having been in production for over 25 years. It splits the difference between a subcompact crossover and a three-row midsize SUV, a specific niche that has a lot of popularity. It's a comfortable vehicle with plenty of technology.

Of course, safety is paramount in almost every vehicle these days, and Subaru is famed for its EyeSight® package. Bill Rapp Subaru of Norwich offers you this look at the Subaru Outback safety features you can expect as you drive the roads of Norwich, Oneonta, and Sidney, NY.

Subaru Outback Smart Safety Features

Like all Subaru vehicles, the Outback comes with the Subaru EyeSight® safety package. This package offers a complete range of active intelligent safety technology features, which are uniquely tuned to work together in concert.

While the individual features are those you'd expect from a vehicle-adaptive cruise control, front crash mitigation, lane-keeping, and the like-the way they work together with an advanced AI makes you feel like you've got a true co-pilot whose eyes work with yours to keep you safe on the roads. 

Safety Technology by Outback Trim Level

At the base trim level of Subaru Outback, you get the most common and important safety features. These include adaptive cruise control to maintain a specific distance between you and any car in front of you and front collision warning and braking to mitigate the damage from an impending crash. There's also lane-keeping to help you stay centered in your lane and automatic high beams.

At the Premium trim level, you can add features like blind-spot and cross-traffic monitoring that lets you know if a vehicle is in your blind spot or about to cross behind you. At the Limited level, you can add features like GPS Navigation and a driver attention monitoring system that keeps you alert and wakes you up if you start to become fatigued. Additional features on the top Onyx Edition XT include hill descent control to keep you under full control on steep inclines.

Passive Safety Features

Additional passive safety features include airbags in the front, side, and curtain areas to keep everyone safe in the event of a crash. You also get four-wheel anti-lock brakes to make sure your brakes pump to prevent wheel lock. Adaptive headlights sense the dusk and kick on when needed, and traction and stability control work to keep your wheels in ideal contact with the pavement even in tough conditions.

NHTSA and IIHS Safety Ratings

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) gave the Subaru Outback a 5-Star Overall Safety Rating, which is as good as it gets. This includes a 5-Star Overall Rating for front and side crash safety.

The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) named the Subaru Outback a TOP SAFETY PICK+. It earned the top Good rating in all crash tests and the top Superior rating for all Crash Avoidance systems.
