mcgill creative writing clubWhile most of the country is dealing with cold weather conditions and a long winter, here in Fort Myers and the greater Naples, FL area, we have the luxury of still experiencing sunny days and relatively warm weather. However, here at O’Brien Subaru of Fort Myers, we know that just because we don’t have to deal with snowy and icy roads it doesn’t mean that we should ignore how important vehicle safety is.

Subaru vehicles are known for being some of the safest, most quality, and longest lasting cars on the road, and there’s a reason why. One of our favorites here at our Naples, FL Subaru dealership is the beautiful new 2017 Subaru Forester.

The Subaru Forester is in part a favorite because it currently holds the record for being the longest consecutive Top Safety Pick award winner by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS). Achieving this feat is no small task, especially with emerging and current safety technology from many auto manufacturers.

So what is the secret ingredient that makes the Subaru Forester and other models like the 2017 Subaru Outback such safe vehicles? One factor is the Subaru EyeSight safety package, which is full of features like adaptive cruise control, vehicle lane departure warning, pre-collision braking, and rear cross-traffic alert. Also available on the 2017 Subaru Forester and other models are state-of-the-art camera systems, which act as an extra pair of eyes which help you from getting yourself and your vehicle into potentially dangerous situations.

“Safety continues to be one of Subaru’s core values,” said Shiro Ohta, chairman, president, and CEO of Subaru Canada, according to Torque News. “We will continue to demonstrate our commitment to safety as we design and develop core technologies, such as the Subaru Global Platform, to meet the safety standards of the future.”

It’s important to not only feel safe in your vehicle wherever you are, but to know that your vehicle is capable of keeping you safe. So if you’re looking to get a new vehicle, check out our selection of Subaru vehicles equipped with Subaru EyeSight at our Florida Subaru dealership today.
