Subaru has been at the forefront of driver assist systems and now the Japanese car brand has just marked an important milestone for its ‘EyeSight’ system.

The system, common on most new Subaru vehicles today, is a driver assist system that utilizes stereo camera technology and allows for Subaru cars to have aids like adaptive cruise control and pre-collision braking.

It has taken Subaru eight years and seven months to break the one million car milestone.

Subaru telling us that research from Japan’s Institute for Traffic Accident Research and Data Analysis shows Subaru vehicles equipped with EyeSight had 61% fewer accidents resulting in injury or death per 10,000 vehicles, than those without it.

Excluding pedestrians and focusing only on accidents between vehicles, the figures show that Subaru vehicles with EyeSight had 84% fewer rear-end collisions.
