Subaru Outback Safety Ratings

The 2018 Subaru Outback has been optimized for damage resistance; in the unlikely event of a collision occurring, you can count on the vehicle to crumple effectively and direct harmful impact energy away from you and your passengers. In fact, the Outback was just put to the test during an extensive and rigorous set of crash tests conducted by the IIHS. It passed with flying colors, earning a top “Good” rating in small and moderate overlap front tests.

Protective Drive

Subaru has developed a legendary reputation for creating family-friendly vehicles that are just as comfortable crossing snowy roads and rough terrain as they are shooting around Portland. Several first-rate performance devices have been developed to make that happen, and many come standard on the 2018 Outback. Examples include:

  • Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive: Standard on every trim, the AWD system works to distribute power intelligently across all wheels for faultless traction, stability, and responsiveness.

  • Vehicle Dynamics Control (VDC) w/ Active Torque Vectoring: VDC sharpens your drive while stabilizing handling by automatically sensing steering and braking inputs to keep the vehicle on your intended path.

  • Brake Assist: If you brake for an emergency, the Outback will detect your intent and apply maximum braking pressure immediately.

Safety Technology

The 2018 Subaru Outback safety is complemented by a wide selection of technologies, including:

  • EyeSight Driver Assistance: Collects adaptive cruise control, pre-collision braking, lane departure with sway warning, and lane keep assist functions, enhancing your awareness and providing semi-autonomous safety.

  • Subaru Starlink Safety and Security: Provides Automatic Collision Notification, Enhanced Roadside Assistance, Stolen Vehicle Recovery, and Remote Services.

  • Blind-Spot Detection: Uses a visual indicator in each side mirror to let you know if a vehicle has entered one of your blind spots. A Rear Cross-Traffic Alert system warns you of traffic approaching from either side while you’re backing up.

  • Rear-Vision Camera w/ Reverse Automatic Braking: Activates automatically when you enter reverse to show where you’re heading; if an obstruction is detected, the vehicle will be stopped automatically.
