Motor Image the exclusive Subaru distributor for nine Asian countries is unveiling its state of the art driver assist technology known as ‘Eyesight’ at the 2018 Singapore Motorshow today. The latest ‘preventive safety’ driver assist technology developed by Subaru, the one and the same manufacturer that gave us the fame boxer engine, asymmetrical all-wheel drive and the Subaru Global Platform, the Eyesight Driver Assist Technology is the culmination of everything Subaru engineers know about safety.
As per its official launch at the Motorshow, Motor Image Asia is debuting the Eyesight Driver Assist for the Malaysian market initially in the brand new Outback SUV. It exemplifies Subaru’s long standing commitment to driver safety, and that was the key objective behind the development of EyeSight, as avoiding a collision is the best way to remain safe on the road. The Eyesight utilizes two cameras that functions in much the same manner as a human eye – as it processes the surrounding environment in 3D, making adjustments and calculations therein.
In addition to other cars, the Subaru Eyesight system can also recognise pedestrians and cyclists, and accurately determine their distance, shape and speed of travel.
Furthermore the system can assist drivers in a multitude of driving situations, including reducing collision damage or if possible, prevent the collision, reducing fatigue on extended drives, or stopping incorrect acceleration if the wrong pedals are pressed.
Indeed, on top of that priceless peace of mind, the Eyesight also adds a large measure of confidence to each and every trip you make as it continuously monitors traffic movement, optimizes the cruise control feature, and also warns you if you sway outside your lane. The Pre-Collision Braking feature can even apply full braking force in emergency situations, helping you avoid or reduce frontal impacts.
When equipped with EyeSight, all 2017 Subaru models receive the highest possible 2017 rating for front crash prevention by the IIHS (Insurance Institute for Highway Safety) in the US. To earn a 2017 Top Safety Pick, a vehicle must earn good ratings in the five crashworthiness tests and an advanced or superior rating for front crash prevention.
As of the official launch at the ongoing Singapore Motorshow, Motor Image announced that the Eyesight Driver Assist shall be available initially for the Malaysian market only on the Outback SUV before it is made available on other Subaru models in the Motor Image Malaysia line-up.
