The Subaru Outback is a great crossover for families traveling around Odessa, Middletown and Dover. It provides a dependable ride with lots of convenient space and features.

But in a family car, safety is the most important thing. That's why we look at the 2018 Subaru Outback safety features, so you'll know what's protecting your family in this great crossover.

Driver Assist Technology

This model uses all around technology to give you greater awareness and safety. It all starts with Subaru EyeSight® Driver Assist Technology.

This intelligent package bundles together features like Adaptive Cruise Control, where your car can maintain a safe distance from the car in front of it and adjust its speed depending on the flow of traffic.

If the car in front of you suddenly stops, the Pre-Collision Braking system can apply the brakes and even bring your car to a complete stop.

Along the same lines, the Pre-Collision Throttle Management can detect objects in front of you and cut power to the throttle to prevent accelerating into it.

EyeSight® gives you coverage on the sides, too. Lane Departure and Sway Warning alert you if you've begun to drift out of your lane and can even steer you back into place.

When you want to change lanes, Blind-Spot Detection lets you know when it's safe to do so. It uses a camera to see if the coast is clear and sends you a warning when there's another car next to you.

You'll also be aware of what's behind you, even before you see it. Rear Cross-Traffic Alert uses radar to detect incoming cars when you're backing up.

The Rear-Vision Camera can show you what's directly behind you, and Reverse Automatic Braking can stop the car if it detects an approaching object.

Drivetrain & Brakes

Safety is built into the design of the 2018 Subaru Outback. All-wheel drive is standard and gets greater performance thanks to X-MODE® and Vehicle Dynamics Control.

These features work together with the Traction Control System to improve stability by monitoring wheel slip and applying braking to maintain traction.

Another aspect of X-MODE® that helps with traction is Hill Descent Control. This lets you remain in control while going downhill by maintaining a constant speed.

You'll get better control when you're going around turns too. The Active Torque Vectoring gives you better handling by applying braking to the front inside wheel.

All these features are backed up by standard anti-lock brakes and the Brake Assist system. This monitors the force you apply to the brake pedal and engages maximum brake pressure.


If a collision does occur, your vehicle will be able to send help right away. The Subaru STARLINK™ Safety and Security system features Enhanced Roadside Assistance.

Front, side, and side-curtain airbags are inside the vehicle, and an Automatic Collision Notification is sent to first responders as soon as one of them deploys.

This system can even help you locate your car if it's been stolen.
