ACTIVE SAFETY – TO AVOID ACCIDENTS
Viele der Funktionen, die die Fahrt im Subaru XV so aufregend machen, helfen auch dabei, Gefahrensituationen zu meistern. Das stabile und agile Handling durch den Allradantrieb „Symmetrical AWD“ wird durch den tiefen Schwerpunkt des SUBARU BOXER-Motors unterstützt. In Kombination mit dem Vehicle Dynamics Control System, dem souveränen Fahrwerk, dem ABS und der reaktionsschnellen Lenkung, behalten Sie stets die Kontrolle.
With powerful disc brakes at every wheel, the Subaru XV has braking response that’s placed it in a class of its own. The standard 4-channel Antilock Braking System (ABS) prevents brake lock under hard braking and is matched with Electronic Brake-force Distribution, which reapportions the front/rear braking pressure when the vehicle is loaded. In addition, the Subaru XV ensures maximum braking during an emergency with brake assist, which delivers higher levels of braking force when the brake pedal is applied fully or rapidly; and with brake override, which enables you to brake to a stop even if the gas pedal is pushed down at the same time.
Vehicle Dynamics Control System
Via an array of sensors, the Vehicle Dynamics Control System monitors and analyses if the vehicle is following the driver’s intended course. If a tyre slips or a high speed turn causes the vehicle off its intended path, the AWD torque distribution, engine output and brakes at each wheel are adjusted to assist in keeping the vehicle on course.
Enjoy the ability to manoeuvre the SUBARU XV in tight city spaces with ease using the rear vision camera, standard on 1.6i Premium, 1.6i Premium Roofrail Edition, 2.0i Premium, 2.0i Premium Roofrail Edition and 2.0D Premium. When the driver shifts into reverse, the camera displays a live colour image on SUBARU XV’s in-dash display, along with guidelines to assist in parking manoeuvres.
PASSIVE SAFETY – FOR OPTIMAL ACCIDENT PROTECTION
Occupant protection is a top priority at every part of the Subaru XV – starting with the main components such as the seats, to the smaller elements such as the pedals. Its energy-absorbing body was specifically reinforced in high wear areas with high-strength steel to minimize the impact force which can reach the passenger compartment, while increasing the bending stiffness. In addition, a variety of advanced safety features were made in the interior for the direct protection of occupants.
Ring-shaped Reinforcement Frames
The ring-shaped reinforcement frames strengthen the passenger cabin from the roof to the doors, pillars and floor. This helps divert and dissipate impact energy away from the occupants in a collision. The frames for the SUBARU XV feature high-tensile steel designs that are strong and rigid yet lighter weight.
Seats, Seatbelts and SRS* Airbags
The SUBARU XV features whiplash-reducing front seats and energy-absorbing head restraints that can help better protect front occupants from injury during a rear collision. Even the rear seats have been optimised for protection, with the seating position set back to reduce the effects of a side impact. Front, front-side, and curtain SRS* airbags are standard on all models.
Every SUBARU goes above and beyond common practice when it comes to your safety. In the event of a head-on collision, your SUBARU XV’s SUBARU BOXER engine and gearbox are designed to avoid crashing into the cabin for your protection.
As the Subaru XV is designed for the city, it also offers the highest level of pedestrian protection. The shock-absorbing space between the bonnet and engine reduces the risk of injury in the event of an accident. The energy-absorbing front bumper and specially designed wiper reduce the risk of injury as well.
