Subaru Australia Equips Manual BRZ with EyeSight Safety Technology
June 20, 2023
Subaru Australia has announced that its Model Year 2024 (MY24) BRZ, equipped with a manual transmission, will now feature the EyeSight® safety technology. This implementation marks the first time Subaru has equipped manual BRZ models with these safety features.
EyeSight®, a suite of safety features, encompasses Autonomous Emergency Braking, Adaptive Cruise Control, Pre-collision Braking, and Lane Departure Warning. This suite of safety technology is designed to enhance driver awareness and aims to mitigate the risk of collisions.
Blair Read, Managing Director of Subaru Australia, commented on the announcement, saying it affirms Subaru Australia's ongoing commitment to providing manual transmission options with the addition of the advanced safety features of EyeSight®.
While EyeSight® has been praised in various markets globally, it's important to note that it was first introduced in Australia back in 2012 for the Outback and Liberty models. Now, nearly a decade later, Subaru has incorporated the technology into 95 per cent of its vehicles sold in Australia, according to sales data from May 2023.
The decision to equip the manual BRZ with the EyeSight® technology comes after the feature has been standard in the automatic version, indicating a possible delay in the implementation of these safety enhancements for manual models.
More details regarding the MY24 Subaru BRZ, including specifications and pricing, will be disclosed at a later date. Subaru encourages interested customers to subscribe at www.subaru.com.au for the latest updates.
