Subaru Eyesight Features

Subaru STARLINK isn't the only smart piece of tech on new models. In its second generation since being introduced in 2012, Subaru EyeSight has been helping to keep Austin and Georgetown drivers safe for some time now. Since 2015, all Subaru vehicles with EyeSight have earned superior frontal crash test ratings from the IIHS, including our favorites, the Crosstrek and Forester. You'll find the following features standard on any new model with Subaru Eyesight:

  • Adaptive Cruise Control
  • Blind Spot Detection
  • Pre-Collision Braking
  • Pre-Collision Throttle Management
  • Lane Departure and Sway Warning
  • Lane Keep Assist

Honda Sensing Features

While Honda Sensing may be getting some play in the news, it's much newer than Subaru Eyesight and less familiar to Dallas and Leander drivers. Debuting on select Honda vehicles in 2015, Honda Sensing includes the following features:

  • Collision Mitigation Braking System
  • Lane Keeping Assist System
  • Adaptive Cruise Control
  • Honda LaneWatch

Subaru Eyesight vs. Honda Sensing

One of the biggest differences you may have noticed is the absence of Blind Spot Detection on Honda Sensing. This is because each model includes Honda LaneWatch. While some might prefer this passenger-mirror-mounted camera and the extra view it provides, we've found it to be more distraction than aid when changing lanes. Typical blind spot monitors, like those on the Subaru Eyesight system still indicate a car is in your blind spot without needing to use a turn signal to switch it on.

The other dealbreaker, for us, was Honda's lack of pre-collision warning systems. Pre-Collision Braking and Pre-Collision Throttle Management work to slow or even fully stop a Subaru to avoid a collision. Add in Subaru's Lane Departure and Sway Warning, and we think it's a pretty clear victory for Eyesight.

In short, while there are some similarities between the two systems, Honda Sensing is still limited on the Honda lineup and lacks features. Let us show you all a Subaru has to offer - including Subaru Eyesight. Contact near Round Rock, Cedar Park and Pflugerville today.
