Subaru’s EyeSight driver assist technology is available for the 2016 WRX Limited with Sport Lineartronic transmission, Subaru of America said.
EyeSight, which is integrated with adaptive cruise control, pre-collision braking and lane departure warning, uses Subaru-developed stereo camera technology. EyeSight is available in a package that also includes navigation and blind spot detection, lane change assist and rear cross traffic alert.
Newly added to the 2016 WRX EyeSight system is lane keep assist, which uses the vehicle’s electric power steering system to help the driver keep the vehicle within its lane when driving on the highway.
Models equipped with EyeSight also come with steering responsive fog lights. This feature works when the fog lights are turned off. The left or right fog light is activated independently, depending on the vehicle speed and steering angle, to provide better illumination in the direction of the turn. The fog lights are pre-aimed for maximum coverage in corners.
