If you are visiting the Singapore Motorshow 2018 next week, be sure to check out the Subaru booth. They will be showcasing the EyeSight Driver Assist Technology featured in the new Outback and XV.
With EyeSight stereo cameras, it is able to identify the surrounding vehicles, obstacles, traffic lanes and other items. And this, in my opinion, is a much-needed feature – Under the right circumstances, it will apply the brakes or reduce the throttle to minimise the risk of a collision.

Subaru at the Singapore Motorshow 2018
– Launch of EyeSight Driver Assist Technology featuring the new Outback and XV
– Chance to win a brand-new Subaru Impreza 2.0i-S and many exciting promotions
Singapore, 5 January 2018 – Motor Image, the exclusive distributor of Subaru vehicles across nine countries in Asia, is launching Subaru’s EyeSight Driver Assist Technology at the Singapore Motorshow 2018. Subaru will also introduce the new Outback and XV which will be equipped with EyeSight.
EyeSight Driver Assist Technology:
EyeSight* is a driving support system that uses a range of functions to assist the driver, providing a safer and comfortable driving experience. Adding confidence to every trip, EyeSight uses stereo cameras to identify the surrounding vehicles, obstacles, traffic lanes and other items. Under the right circumstances, it will apply the brakes or reduce the throttle to minimise the risk of a collision.
When equipped with EyeSight, all 2017 Subaru models received the highest possible 2017 rating for front crash prevention by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) in the United States. This advanced system provides extra awareness, safety, and added confidence every time drivers step behind the wheel.
The new Subaru Outback and XV:
During the Singapore Motorshow 2018, Subaru will also launch the new Outback and XV which will be equipped with EyeSight.
The new Outback will feature a facelifted front bumper and hexagonal grille which will give it a high quality and rugged look. The turbine-shaped rims are dynamically designed and light-weight which will result in better aerodynamics.
Subaru will also introduce the XV 2.0i-S equipped with EyeSight at the Singapore Motorshow 2018. This follows the 1.6-litre variant that was launched in July 2017.
The Subaru XV 2.0i-S will feature a Direct Fuel Injection Naturally Aspirated Engine which produces
156PS at 6000rpm. The 2.0-litre Boxer Engine has been revamped, making the new engine
approximately 12kg lighter and equipped with Direct Injection to deliver more power and fuel economy.
