Automatic braking system to be available from later this year
12 May 2010

Subaru Legacy buyers will be able to get a new automatic braking system later this year.

The system uses two forward-facing cameras to detect a potential collision and gives an audible warning to the driver if a potential collision is detected.

If no action is taken, and the closing speed between the two cars is 18.6mph or less, New EyeSight can stop the car to avoid a collision. At greater speeds it acts to slow the car.

The system also detects sudden heavy braking by the driver, automatically activating the pre-collision brake assist system to maximise braking.

The 'New EyeSight' technology will be offered in the UK late in 2010.

  • Citroën C3 Aircross

    17 October 2017
    It's got funky looks and a charming interior, but it's another small SUV, and another dynamic miss. Numb steering is just one thing keeping it from class best
  • Skoda-Karoq 2.0 TDI 4x4
    First Drive
    16 October 2017
    Diesel version of Skoda’s junior SUV is unobtrusive and undemanding, but we’d still go for the silkier petrol version of the Karoq
  • Audi Q7 e-tron
    First Drive
    16 October 2017
    Expensive and flawed but this understated diesel-electric Audi Q7 has a lot to offer
  • Citroën C3

    Is the third gen Citroën C3 ‘fresh and different’ enough to take on its supermini rivals? We spend six months with one to find out
  • BMW X3
    First Drive
    15 October 2017
    A satisfying rework of the X3 that usefully improves its handling, cabin finish, space and connectivity to make this BMW a class front-runner again
