2018 Subaru Forester Safety Features

When it comes to 2018 Subaru Forester safety features, the place to start is the crash test ratings the vehicle gets from notable agencies like the NHTSA and the IIHS. There's good news for sport utility vehicle enthusiasts: the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration gave the new Forester top marks: a 5-star overall rating in frontal, side, side barrier, side poll and rollover crash ratings.

The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety gave the new Forester its top Good rating in side impact, roof strength, rear crash, and in small and moderate overlap front testing. This gives it a top safety rating, placing it in line with the best and safest vehicles on the entire road.

Notable Safety Features

There are three major notable safety features to keep in mind when considering the new Subaru Forester. The first of this is the unique hill start assist features that enable the vehicle to hold its position and keep it from rolling backwards on a hill as you switch from brake to gas pedal.

The next is the reverse automatic braking feature. This helps to reduce collisions and works in conjunction with the rear cross-traffic alerts by automatically applying brakes when a vehicle crosses behind you.

Subaru EyeSight Technology

Finally, the EyeSight Driver Assist package is one of the most intelligent driver aid technology packages on the market today. It takes all of the most advanced safety features like lane departure warnings, automatic emergency braking, frontal collision warning and mitigation, lane keeping assist and more and combines them in a way that truly makes your vehicle a second set of eyes on the road.

It's this EyeSight package that gives the vehicle its Top Safety Rating status. From the dual color cameras to the additional awareness and added peace of mind it grants you, the EyeSight package is the best possible safety technology available on the market today.
