System helps drivers avoid accidents by applying the brakes

Subaru has announced that it has made a significant update to the EyeSight driver assistance system. This system uses two cameras that are mounted in the top of the windshield. These cameras look ahead of the vehicle for other cars and obstacles.

The new system uses color stereo cameras and has a 40% longer and wider detection range. The new system is able to work at a higher speed difference than the older version supporting a 30mph speed difference between the Subaru and cars in front of it.

When the system detects an impending collision, it is able to apply the brakes. It will also warn if the driver veers out of their lane. The EyeSight system has been available for two years on Subaru models. The new cameras are not only better performing, but are also 15% smaller than previous versions.

Dear John: I’m looking for a ‘sporty’ compact crossover

Aug 27 2014 3:09pm CDT | Source: Driving Canada

Industry experts think the compact crossover segment will replace the compact car class as the most popular with Canadian new car buyers sooner rather than later. Some obvious reasons are the extra interior room and readily available all-wheel-drive (AWD) that crossovers enjoy over their car counterparts. But you could also include the wide variety of models as a big factor, too. Which is why this month’s Dear John writer’s request for a “sporty” compact crossov ...

Embrace the Singularity: Subaru to Move to a Shared Architecture

Aug 27 2014 3:03pm CDT | Source: Car and Driver

Future models of Subaru’s WRX STI will share a platform with a 7-passenger crossover. It now looks as if Volkswagen’s MQB strategy was just the beginning of a trend. Hot on the heels of Volvo’s SPA announcement, Subaru has confirmed that the Fuji Heavy Industries brand will move its mainline vehicles to a single architecture. Everything from the Impreza to a seven-seat Tribeca successor will ride on the new set of bones, in a bid to cut costs and shave development tim ...

Respect your elders: the history behind Audi’s RS breed

Aug 27 2014 7:00am CDT | Source: Driving Canada

In the beginning, there was the word, and the word was quattro. Here, at the top of a mountain, a meeting between two machines that represent the best of Audi’s commitment in building machines that blend supreme capability with storming performance. Naturally, we’ve attracted a bit of attention. “Is that wagon on Porsche wheels?” a cyclist asks, slightly winded from the long climb up Mount Seymour. Soon, a kno ...

Protecting your new car’s paint job

Aug 26 2014 5:29pm CDT | Source: Driving Canada

Whether you’ve eaten peanut butter sandwiches for two years to afford a $12,498 dollars Mitsubishi Mirage or plunked down $173 ‘large’ for a 2014 50th Anniversary Commemorative Edition Porsche 911 Carrera 4S, people universally cringe at the notion of rock chips on their new cars. For car lovers, every new rock chip is agony, and as they accumulate, it feels like death by a thousand cuts. In the winter, prairie jurisdictions ...

More Juice for Japan: Subaru Begins WRX S4 and STI Type S Sales

Aug 26 2014 1:25pm CDT | Source: Car and Driver

Subaru loves to save special things for the home market. The 22B STI from the 1998 might be the most notable example among casual Subie heads, but it’s hardly the only one. And now Nihon-boxer devotees have a pair of new Impreza-derived machines to lust after: the WRX S4 and the WRX STI Type S. The STI Type S isn’t markedly different from the car you can trot down to your local Subie store and buy. It gives away a pony or so of our m ...

Subaru has announced a special edition WRX S4, which will only be available in Subaru’s home Japanese market. Slotting between the standard WRX and the STI, the S4 will blend some of the company’s most valued traits. Named not after the Group B rally car icon, nor after the Audi of the same name, the WRX S4 was named after the values for which it stands: sports performance, safety performance, smart driving, and sop ...
