Safety

Safety

Prepared for the corner and everything around it.

Safety is designed into every angle of the Subaru Impreza. It’s designed to help you avoid danger, and to help protect drivers, passengers, and even pedestrians if an accident were to occur. Maintain the utmost composure with responsive handling, excellent visibility, and the peace of mind and control you can only get from Symmetrical All-wheel Drive. And because no driver is perfect, the Impreza equipped with technologies that can help filter out driver error for a safer driving experience.

Vehicle dynamics control

The Vehicle Dynamics Control System monitors and analyses via an array of sensors whether the vehicle is following the driver’s intended path. If the vehicle approaches the limits of stability, the AWD torque distribution, engine output and brakes at each wheel are adjusted to assist in keeping the vehicle on course

Control your destiny

The best way to survive a collision is to avoid it in the first place. That's why the active safety in every Impreza all works together with Symmetrical AWD to help give you the control and confidence to conquer the adversity you may face.

Safety that embraces you.

When the unpredictable happens, the Impreza is engineered to help protect drivers, passengers and even pedestrians. Every bit of knowledge gained from the crash test is applied—from the airbags to the chassis, to the cabin-protecting layout, it’s all engineered to help minimise the effects of a collision and protect passengers.

Seats, seatbelts and SRS* airbags

The Impreza features whiplash-reducing front seats and energy-absorbing head restraints, along with seatbelts with pretensioners, that can help better protect front occupants during a rear collision. Front, front-side, curtain SRS* airbags are standard on 2.0i and 2.0i Sport, optional on 1.6i Sport to maximise protection in frontal and side impacts.

Ring-shaped Reinforcement Frames

The Ring-shaped Reinforcement Frames feature high-tensile steel designs that are strong and rigid, yet light in weight. The passenger cabin is strengthened from the roof to the doors, pillars and floor. This design helps, in a collision, to divert and dissipate impact energy away from the occupants.

Cabin-protecting layout

In the event of a head-on collision, the SUBARU BOXER engine and gearbox are designed, for your protection, to avoid crashing into the cabin.
