Toronto, Ontario — Subaru is giving drivers the ability to opt into additional safety features, announcing that the 2023 Outback will include a forward-facing camera in the model’s top trim.
In addition to the dual-camera EyeSight that comes standard on all 2023 Outbacks, the Touring trim will feature a wide-angle mono camera. Subaru says the camera will further expand the field of view to help the system recognize pedestrians and bicyclists sooner when the vehicle enters an intersection at low speed.
According to the automaker, EyeSight is capable of automatically braking the vehicle when a cyclist or pedestrian passes through the camera’s field.
Subaru also announced that automatic emergency steering will be included on Outbacks equipped with blind-spot detection, lane-change assist and rear cross-traffic alert.
Subaru debuted the 2023 Outback at the New York International Auto Show on Wednesday.
