2017-subaru-outback-2-5i-limited-logo-700x438Subaru models are constantly rated as some of the safest, well-built cars on the market. From the 2017 Subaru Outback to the newly designed 2017 Subaru Impreza, these vehicles are constantly outperforming many competitors when it comes to safety and technology. 

Earning such high praise year after year is no small feat. That’s why we at O’Brien Subaru of Fort Myers know that when you purchase a new Subaru model for sale in Florida, you’re getting a vehicle that has been properly vetted and designed to exceed expectations. This dedication to safety is also why when the automaker makes a big step forward, it isn’t done without proper care. The next step forward for Subaru automakers? More autonomous driving. 

Self-driving cars, something that we once thought only existed in a future like the Jetsons, are becoming more of a reality every day. However, it’s not easy to get cleared to put your autonomous car out on the road. That’s why we know that when Subaru automakers do it, they know what they’re doing. 

The automaker is the most recent member allowed by the California DMV to be allowed to test its automotive cars on state roads. Before you get images of taking a nap in your car on the way to work, there are a few things to go over. Subaru automakers aren’t working to make your car drive you just yet. They’re working on better technology to help you drive. Vehicles like the Subaru Outback and Subaru Forester already come with EyeSight safety suite, and this new technology will add to those features. 

We can soon expect to see features in new Subaru cars for sale like autonomous traffic jam navigation and steering as well as semi-automatic highway driving, which includes lane changing and following bends in the road, by 2020.
