Advanced Safety Package: Subaru Rear Vehicle Detection (SRVD)*
Sensors placed around the vehicle alert you of vehicles in your rear blind spots for safer lane changes. It also warns you of potential collision danger whilst driving in reverse into a street with cross traffic.
SUBARU Global Platform
The SGP’s advancements throughout the chassis—higher rigidity, higher strength, lighter weight, better rolling resistance and responsive steering—particularly benefit these safety systems.
Made possible by the SGP, the lower centre of gravity design, enhanced suspension system, and rigidity improvements provide a vehicle that responds immediately when evasive actions are taken, helping avoid hazards on the road.
Now sitting lower than ever due to the low centre of gravity design of the SGP, the engine and gearbox are designed to avoid crashing into the cabin in the event of a collision.
Ring-shaped Reinforcement Frame
The ring-shaped reinforcement frame makes better use of high-tensile steel panels and has been structurally redesigned for more efficient energy absorption from impacts in all directions.
Supplemental Restraint System (SRS)* Airbags
Front SRS* airbags, front side SRS* airbags, curtain SRS* airbags, and a knee SRS* airbag come standard on the all-new SUBARU XV to give all passengers a higher level of protection in the event of a collision.
Whiplash-mitigating Front Seats
Designed to enhance comfort and help the driver feel more planted for more control, these seats can also help reduce the possibility of whiplash resulting from certain types of collisions.
During an impact, the locking tongue limits movement in the lap belt and reduces impact in the lower chest area to improve safety and reduce injury levels.
SUBARU’s World-leading Driver Assist Technology
At Subaru, we believe in ALL-AROUND SAFETY, and an important part of that is pre-collision safety, making sincere efforts to ensure an accident never happens. That’s why we created EyeSight*1 , Subaru’s cutting-edge driving support system. Like a second pair of eyes for the road ahead, EyeSight uses two stereo cameras to capture three-dimensional colour images with excellent image recognition, nearly as capable as the human
eye. Using images from both cameras to precisely determine the shape, speed and distance, it not only detects vehicles but also motorbikes, bicycles, and pedestrians.*2 When spotting potential danger, it warns the driver and even applies the brakes if necessary to help avoid an accident. With improved safety performance like this, EyeSight reduces the burden on the driver and enhances your sense of security in the SUBARU XV.
Lead Vehicle Start Alert
When you're at a stop and EyeSight senses that traffic has started moving again, Lead Vehicle Start Alert prompts the driver to take action with a buzzer and a flashing indicator.
Pre-Collision Throttle Management
When EyeSight sees an obstacle in front of you and you put the vehicle in drive instead of reverse, Pre-collision Throttle Management sounds several short beeps, turns on a flashing indicator and cuts the engine output to help you avoid a frontal collision.
*2 Pre-collision Braking System may not work in all situations. Depending on the speed difference from objects, the object's height and other conditions, every situation may not meet the necessary conditions for EyeSight to work optimally.
