EyeSight® Driver Assist Technology

EyeSight® is our clever crash-avoidance technology and was developed to help keep you safe on the roads. It’s like a second pair of eyes, spotting potentially dangerous driving situations. Subaru's EyeSight® is made up of 8 different features, including 3 autonomous braking features, adaptive cruise, 3 driver alerts and lane keep assist. Find out more about Subaru's award winning EyeSight® technology here

Balanced to perform - Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive

Greater balance and extreme control. That’s the confidence you get from our unique Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive system, standard in every NZ new Subaru. A long time ago, we decided to deliver the drive distribution to all four wheels, all the time. This unique approach means you can accelerate faster on wet roads whilst helping you stay on track through corners. But we didn’t stop there. Every Subaru has an innate sense of balance from the ground up, thanks to a near perfect symmetrical layout. With extra grip on the roads and symmetrical balance you can stay extra safe, no matter what conditions you're driving in.
