Some advanced safety features --- while not cutting edge --- can still improve vehicle safety. Optional side mirror turn signals alert others of your intention to turn or switch lanes allowing them to react accordingly, which can prevent accidents caused by not seeing a vehicle in the blind spot. Optional Adaptive Headlights points head lamps towards where the vehicle is heading, better lighting the road ahead. High Beam Assist are standard on the 2021 Subaru Ascent. This feature recognizes oncoming traffic and shuts off high beam headlights until the oncoming traffic has passed.
