Subaru and Liberty Mutual to develop a real-time driving monitor app image

Subaru drivers will have access to the Liberty Mutual’s RightTrack usage-based insurance program later this year, which offers real-time driving feedback and tips while helping to reduce insurance premiums.

Liberty Mutual Insurance has announced it teamed up with Subaru of America to offer drivers access to the new Liberty Mutual RightTrack in-vehicle application. The app was developed for Subaru’s Starlink infotainment, powered by Clarion’s Smart Access technology that connects vehicles to a driver’s smartphone to monitor driving habits and provide trip reports and tips for safer driving. The insurance company says those who take part will be able to save up to 30 percent of their bill.

The RightTrack in-vehicle app will provide real-time driving assessment and coaching for Subaru owners based on their actual driving behavior. For example, after each trip, a driver will receive a report based on their behaviors such as rapid acceleration or hard braking. Depending on their performance, drivers will be eligible for savings through Liberty Mutual’s RightTrack. Users may also qualify for additional savings through Liberty Mutual’s affinity program, which Subaru of America has been a partner of since 2002. Everyone gets a five-percent discount just for signing up for the usage-based insurance, but after 90 days the safest drivers can get the maximum discount.

“This partnership combines Liberty Mutual’s extensive experience and reach in usage-based insurance with Subaru and Clarion’s cutting-edge connected car technology to bring RightTrack savings to consumers in new ways,” Hamid Mirza, auto product manager at Liberty Mutual Insurance, said in the announcement. The RightTrack app should be available this year on any Subaru with the Starlink infotainment system. In the near future, users will also receive some software updates which will bring additional features such as severe weather alerts, accident scene assistance and roadside assistance directly to their connected vehicle.
