Car Safety and Performance Features in a New Subaru

While most people consider price, aesthetics, and convenience as the foremost criteria when choosing a car, safety remains a non-negotiable factor. With the high incidence of road accidents, people naturally prefer cars with a reputation for safety. Car manufacturers have taken it upon themselves to develop various automotive technologies to guarantee the safety of every motorist.

Seatbelts and airbags are two primary safety features that increase accident survival rates. A few decades ago, only the front seats had airbags and seatbelts. Vehicles manufactured over the last five years or so now have side seat mounted airbags, curtain 1st and 2nd row overhead airbags, and airbag occupancy sensor, as well as seatbelts for both front and rear passenger seats. These protect the body, especially the head, in case of severe impact or collision.

A five-speed manual transmission provides an excellent driving experience and enhances safety among those used to driving with manual transmissions. Their somewhat complicated mechanics prompt drivers to keep their eyes on the road. In any case, older drivers and younger ones who grew up driving stick shifts learn to develop proper driving reflexes to help them cope with any road condition.

Meanwhile, an overdrive feature allows the engine to make as many as 3,278 revolutions per minute and sustain that speed. This is similar to cruise control, which a lot of recently manufactured vehicles also have. Cruise control sustains the car at a definite speed as set by the driver, so the car can only go as fast as the cruise control is set.

Cruise control is important for Subaru Calgary owners who need to maintain driving speeds below 50kph on major roadways and 15kph in alleyways. Although Calgary and Edmonton residents experience dry winters, roads can become slippery with ice. Cruise control can help people avoid the temptation to drive at their usual speeds.

Skids and slides can also be prevented by anti-lock brakes or ABS. A Subaru dealer Edmonton residents visit can show that, instead of abruptly stopping, the wheels keep rolling for a few moments before finally stopping. This allows a driver to veer to the side and avoid collisions safely; otherwise, the car would just slide forward and collide with an oncoming vehicle.

Used car dealers Edmonton residents visit are happy to show that a lot of their newer pre-owned items have these safety features installed. Car buyers can feel more at ease knowing that these used are safe to drive safe all year round. For more information on essential car safety features, go to CarsDirect.com.
