Toyota Safety Sense in Covington, LA vs Subaru EyeSight: How They Compare
These days, driver assistance technologies are first and foremost on automakers' (and buyers') minds. These available and standard features use advanced engineering and sonar technology to help drivers avoid potential crashes and, in some cases, they even intervene when needed. However, when you compare Subaru EyeSight safety suite with Toyota Safety Sense in Covington, LA, which comes out ahead? Here, you'll learn how Subaru offerings such as the Outback, Crosstrek, and Legacy compare with Toyota's offerings.
Adaptive Cruise Control
Adaptive Cruise Control is available on Toyota Safety Sense as well as Subaru Eyesight in Covington, LA, but we think Subaru has the better setup. With adaptive cruise control, sensors on the car's front end interact with the accelerator and brake to maintain a predetermined, safe distance between your car and the one in front of you. Drivers can choose from three distances, depending on speed and time. Subaru gets the edge here because its adaptive cruise control is typically paired with auto emergency braking; here, the brakes are applied when the system senses an imminent collision with no input from the driver.
Sway Warning and Lane Keep Assist
Also available with Subaru EyeSight and Toyota Safety Sense in Covington, LA, are sway warning and lane keep assist, which use built-in cameras and sensors that determine if your vehicle is moving away from the center of the lane. If the system's warnings are not heeded, the vehicle will automatically make minor adjustments to keep the car in its lane.
Another useful offering with Subaru EyeSight and Toyota Safety Sense in Covington LA is a pre-collision braking system that can detect when a crash is imminent. The feature automatically uses the brakes to avoid or mitigate the impact. While this system is no substitute for aware and alert driving, the pre-collision system of the Subaru EyeSight system is one of its most useful features.
Pre-Collision Throttle Management
Unlike Toyota Safety Sense in Covington LA, only EyeSight-equipped vehicles come with pre-collision throttle management. This system determines when a vehicle is in danger of hitting another vehicle during acceleration from a standing start. Here, the throttle and brake are managed and applied to decrease the chances and severity of an impending collision. With the extra few seconds the system provides, drivers are more likely to react by letting off of the accelerator or pressing the brakes. This reduces the chances of a rear-end collision and makes for a smoother everyday driving experience.
