Active Safety Features

The new Subaru WRX is built with ample active safety features that initiate based on performance monitor responses to help you maintain control of the vehicle in a variety of conditions. These systems are standard across the lineup as your safety is a priority no matter which trim you choose:

  • High-Performance Brakes: Available Brembo brakes give you maximum stopping force, and the standard anti-lock braking system with electronic brake-force distribution and brake assist help you stop faster.

  • Traction Control System: Making adjustments to braking to prevent understeer and oversteer, this system works to give you maximum grip and minimize wheelslip.

  • Tire Pressure Monitoring System: This technology measures air pressure to alert you when you need to fill up to prevent a flat tire when avoidable.

  • Daytime Running Lights: Allowing you to see better at all times and making you more visible to others on the road, these standard lights show the way across the lineup.

  • Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive: In conjunction with Vehicle Dynamics Control with Active Torque Vectoring, this intelligent AWD system maneuvers torque power between the four wheels to give you the best control in a variety of road and weather conditions.

  • Rearvision Camera: Avoid an accident when you're leaving the driveway or a busy parking lot thanks to an added view of what's going on behind you displayed on the touchscreen infotainment center when you flip the gears into reverse.

EyeSight® Driver Assist Technology

Adding this available suite of innovative systems gives you alerts and interventions when you're in danger of an accident to lessen the likelihood of a mishap on the road. Using both camera and radar technology, you'll be impressed with how much these systems help you make better driving decisions when there's something you miss:

  • Adaptive Cruise Control: You can choose both your desired speed and a safe distance from vehicles ahead of you for this system to make adjustments when you approach traffic.

  • Lane Keep Assist and Sway Warning: If you're distracted or fatigued, this system will alert you that you're drifting from the center of your lane, so you can steer back.

  • Pre-Collision Braking: If you're in danger of hitting the vehicle ahead of you, this system applies maximum braking force to prevent an accident or help reduce an impact when possible.

  • Blind-Spot Detection and Rear Cross-Traffic Alert: Indicators in the side view mirrors let you know if a vehicle is coming up on either side, so you can switch lanes or back out safely.

Passive Safety Design

The new Subaru WRX has been put to the test, and the IIHS has awarded the WRX its highest honor of being a 2017 Top Safety Pick+, meaning its safety design is among the best. These passive safety features work to protect you in the event of an accident, and a smart structural design helps keep you protected as well:

  • SUBARU STARLINK Safety and Security: This communications system uses Automatic Collision Notification, Enhanced Roadside Assistance, Stolen Vehicle Recovery, and Remote Services to link you to help when you need it.

  • Airbag Protection: Included protection is the Subaru advanced frontal airbag system, a driver's knee airbag, side-curtain airbags, and front seat side pelvis and torso airbags.

  • Smart Structure: The new WRX is built with ring-shaped reinforcement frame body structure to keep you safe in the event of an impact by dispersing energy away from passenger zones with high strength materials.

  • Child Safety: Every Subaru WRX is equipped with rear childproof safety locks as well as LATCH restraints to secure child seats in the rear seats for maximum stability.
