The EyeSight system includes: Lane Departure Warning. Pre-collision Braking. Adaptive Cruise Control. Lane Keep Assist. EyeSight Assist Monitor and more.

This feature can be activated or deactivated by pressing the Lane Keep Assist switch on the right side of the steering wheel. The Pre-Collision Braking System can help prevent or minimize the risk of a collision by automatically applying the brakes if an obstacle is detected in front of the vehicle to reduce the impact damage or if possible prevent the collision.

EyeSight Adaptive Cruise Control detects vehicles driving in the same lane in front of you using the stereo cameras located beside the rear view mirror. And adjust your speed accordingly to follow the vehicle in front. To set up Adaptive Cruise Control, press the Cruise switch located on the right side of the steering wheel. Press the RES/SET switch, this will set the cruise control at the speed that you are currently traveling. When a vehicle in front is detected, you will hear one short beep, and your Subaru will match the speed at the distance you have selected.

The Operation Status for the EyeSight Assist Monitor are projected onto the lower part of the windshield. These lights alert the driver to various systems and vehicle operations. Four red flashing indicators alert the driver that the Follow Distance Warning, Pre-Collision Braking System, Obstacle Detective Warning, or Pre-Collision Throttle Management is operating. Flashing yellow on the left or right side indicates lane departure. Two alternating flashing yellows indicate Lane Sway warning. Simultaneous yellow flashes indicate detection of lack of steering wheel operation. Green indicates that a vehicle is detected ahead when Adaptive Cruise Control is active. All of the EyeSight Driver Assist technology comes standard in the 2019 Subaru Ascent, keeping the driver, and the occupants safer on the road.
