Subaru Ascent Safety Features

When you’re taking on the roads of Rockwall, Mesquite, and Garland, TX, with a family-friendly SUV, you’ll want to make sure that you and your passengers are well-protected and safer during the trip. The Subaru Ascent safety features provide several different levels of protection, so if you’re interested in learning more, you’re in a helpful place!

Our team at Norm Reeves Subaru Superstore Rockwall is here to help you learn all about the Ascent safety features. This guide will show you what you can expect in terms of the protection for you and your passengers!

Subaru Ascent Active Safety Features

At the start, the Ascent offers you control of the vehicle through the Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive System. This system gets powered by the horizontally-opposed valves, so you can handle any type of terrain the road throws your way.

The Ascent also includes the Vehicle Dynamics Control, which includes Traction Control and Trailer Sway Assist. This helps you remain in control when your vehicle experiences a loss of traction. The Brake Assist gives you

full braking power when you need it, while the Brake Override System will recognize panicked braking when both the accelerator and brake pedal are pressed simultaneously and will automatically reduce the acceleration.

Ascent Passive Safety

Passive safety is key because it’s the last line of defense in the event that a collision is unavoidable. The advanced front airbags will adjust the inflation pressure based on the severity of impact to reduce airbag-related injuries. Passengers also get protection from the seat-mounted front side airbags and the side curtain airbags-which protect all outboard passengers in the Ascent.

EyeSight® Driver-Assisting Technology

The Subaru EyeSight® system is a collection of driver-assisting technologies that work by using sensors and cameras that are mounted to the vehicle. These sensors and cameras will keep track of your distance from other vehicles while factoring in your rate of approach. The system will activate the appropriate feature in order to provide a warning, and uses braking mitigation to alert you and to give you time to react and help prevent an accident from occurring.

There are several features equipped with EyeSight®, including:

  • Pre-Collision Braking System
  • Pre-Collision Throttle Management
  • Lane Departure and Sway Warning
  • Advanced Adaptive Cruise Control with Lane Centering
  • Blind-Spot Detection with Lane Change Assist and Rear Cross-Traffic Alert (available on Premium trim)
