2018 Subaru Legacy Safety Features

 

A sporty sedan like the Subaru Legacy brings together the convenience of a midsize sedan with the versatility of a Subaru. It offers great performance and a safe ride for you and your passengers.

Winner Subaru wants drivers in Middletown, Odessa, and Dover to know how this great car can protect you. That's why we put together this review of the 2018 Subaru Legacy safety features.

Driver Assistance

The Legacy uses technology to keep your drives safer and more informed. It all starts with the EyeSight® Driver Assist Technology system.This bundles together four driver assistance features that look out for you while you drive. Using cameras and sensors, its able to detect when another car or object is coming towards you. It can then cut your acceleration with Pre-Collision Throttle Management and stop the car with Pre-Collision Braking.

Both these technologies also utilize Adaptive Cruise Control: This maintains a safe distance from the car in front of you, and can slow you down or bring your Legacy to a complete stop if traffic gets heavier.

EyeSight® has you covered on the sides, too. Lane Departure and Sway Warning with Lane Keeping Assist can tell if you begin to drift out of your lane. It sends you alerts and can even steer you back into place.

Along the same lines, an available Blind Spot Detection system lets you know when it's safe to change lanes by warning you if there's another car in your blind spot.

In addition to the features in EyeSight®, this model has your back, too. A standard Rear-Vision Camera lets you see what's behind you on your dashboard monitor. This camera is also used for radar. The Rear Cross-Traffic Alert warns you when cars will cross your path, even before you see them.

The safety features and technology look out for you if an accident occurs, too. The Subaru STARLINK™ Safety and Security system sends Automatic Collision Notifications and provides you with Enhanced Roadside Assistance.

Subaru Legacy Safety Built In

Before the technology and driver assistance features were added, safety was built right into the design of this vehicle.

Passengers are protected while in the interior by eight airbags, including:

  • Driver and front-passenger front airbags
  • Driver and front-passenger seat cushion airbags
  • Seat-mounted front side-impact airbags
  • Side-curtain airbags with rollover sensor

The front seats are also equipped with whiplash-protection, while small children can get extra security in the back with Lower Anchors and Tethers for Children.

All of this, plus the driver assistance tech, has made the 2018 Subaru Legacy a 2018 TOP SAFETY PICK+ by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety, and earned it the 5-Star Overall Safety Rating from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.

Stability & Traction

 You'll also have great control during your drive in the 2018 Subaru Legacy. It's equipped with standard Subaru Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive and Vehicle Dynamics Control (VDC)

The VDC feature uses sensors to monitor wheel speed, brake pressure, and steering angle. It can also detect skidding and apply corrective braking to get you back on the right path.

This is part of the Traction Control System. It can sense any loss of traction and apply braking to whatever wheels have lost their grip.
