Safety

Protective and preventative safety

Australian roads have never been busier, the weather is becoming more unpredictable and driver distraction is increasing. That’s why safety is more important than ever.

Under the skin of every Subaru XV is hidden engineering brilliance. With a ring-shaped steel safety cell that’s designed to absorb and direct the impact of the force around the cabin, rather than through it. Plus every XV comes equipped with the superior traction and control of Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive and 7, yes 7, SRS airbags - dual front, dual front side, dual curtain and knee airbag for driver. Little wonder a Subaru XV achieves a 5 star ANCAP# safety rating.

EyeSight® Driver Assist

EyeSight® Driver Assist

With cutting-edge EyeSight® Driver Assist technology, it’s reassuring to know your Subaru XV is always watching out for you. Here's a few ways you're safer with XV:

When the car in front of you moves at a green light, Lead Vehicle Start Alert lets you know when it’s time to go – so the driver behind you doesn't have to. 

Pre-Collision Braking System delivers automatic braking to help avoid or reduce the severity of detected frontal accident impacts.

Pre-Collision Steering Assist applies greater steering assistance when you attempt to steer away from a detected collision ahead.

If the XV’s EyeSight® Driver Assist technology senses any lane sway or lane departure and will give you an audible warning.

Adaptive Cruise Control tracks the vehicle in front of you, keeping a safe distance to take the stress off.

Eliminate blind spots

Eliminate blind spots

Many accidents happen because a driver simply cannot see another. Subaru’s Vision Assist is designed to eliminate blinds spots with cameras and sensors placed to give a driver unprecedented awareness of what’s around them.

If a vehicle is in your blind spot, a light symbol on your side mirror lights up – on either side of the car – to let you know. Or, if you’re changing lanes and a fast approaching vehicle is behind you, a light symbol will warn you of its presence. If you’re reversing and a vehicle drives past behind you, or if the system detects that vehicles are approaching from the side, Subaru's Vision Assist Rear Cross Traffic Alert will alert you audibly that there is risk of a collision.

 

Subaru's Vision Assist standard on Subaru XV 2.0i-S AWD and XV Hybrid AWD.

Driver assistance at the ready

Driver assistance at the ready

Sudden stopping. Surprise roadworks and hairpin turns. Subaru XV is ready with its electronic driver assist system, Vehicle Dynamics Control system (VDC).

Featuring a range of stability and braking technologies, the VDC system steps in to help maintain your safety in extreme situations.  Constantly analysing through an array of sensors, VDC includes:

Electronic Stability Control: Helps you gain control if you unexpectedly understeer or oversteer, by applying brakes, reducing engine power and distributing torque. Traction Control System: Helps you minimise your wheel slip by reducing engine power.

Limited Slip Device: Helps you maintain control by transferring power from the wheels that slip to the wheels that grip.

Anti-lock Braking System: Helps you stay in control by minimising stopping distance and maintaining vehicle control under brakes.

Electronic Brakeforce Distribution: Helps keep you safe by controlling the braking pressure to the front and rear wheels all the time.

Brake Assist: Helps you in emergency situations by maximising stopping power.

Boxer engine

Designed for the pure enjoyment of driving, the 2.0-litre horizontally-opposed direct injection Boxer engine has been finely tuned to deliver optimum power, torque, exhaust emissions, fuel economy and idling stability via Subaru’s Dual Active Valve Control System (DAVCS). And because it sits low and flat in the engine bay, Subaru XV has a low centre of gravity which means better road stability and much more responsive drive.
