Award-Winning Safety Feature on New Subaru Models


Subaru has made it perfectly clear that they put a strong focus on safety and innovation for their vehicles. This attention has been recognized by the Automobile Journalists Association of Canada (AJAC) who have awarded the Subaru DriverFocus system the Best Safety Innovation for 2019.

To be awarded this title means that this piece of technology is one of the best and most exciting features of the year, giving you even more reasons to choose a Subaru as your next vehicle.


What is Subaru DriverFocus?

Subaru DriverFocus is a segment-exclusive feature that employs facial recognition techniques to refocus a driver who is distracted or drowsy. The camera for this system is mounted above the dashboard and can hold up to five driver presets for seats and mirror angles.

Distracted driving is one of the largest contributors to accidents and Subaru is doing everything they can – including the use of other safety features like Subaru Eyesight – to ensure you will be able to stay safe on the roads.


What Subaru Models Have DriverFocus?

The DriverFocus system is brand-new and isn't available across the full lineup of new Subaru models, but you can find it available in the 2019 Subaru Forester and the upcoming 2020 Subaru Legacy. As the newest model years start to come off production it will be more widely available.
