Your furry friend will love them.
Subaru loves animals, perhaps more than any other automaker. The Japanese brand even brings adoptable puppies to its stand at auto shows. Wagon-like vehicles such as the 2022 Subaru Outback are perfect for traveling with pets because they offer tons of space to roam around. Subaru just announced a new line of pet accessories designed to make that area even more comfortable for a dog, cat, or another animal.
"Protecting pets is a key component of our Subaru Loves Pets commitment, and that includes protecting pets on the road," said Joe Daugherty, Director of Accessories at Subaru of America, Inc. "At Subaru, we know that pets are part of the family, and as our owners head out for warmer weather adventures with furry friends in tow, we want to keep them safe and comfortable for the ride."
Subaru says its new line features pet-friendly gear and accessories that were specifically designed for animal comfort. The new additions include a padded cargo liner, console lid protector, collapsible pet kennel, padded seat protector, trunk ramp, seat covers, rear bumper protector mat, and license plate frames that say "Pet Lover." Along with these options, Subaru will offer Sleepypod products, including a pet harness, pet carrier/mobile bed, and travel bowl.
"Sleepypod carriers and car harnesses are packed with proprietary technology that is the result of an intensive engineering effort by Sleepypod's design team to help keep pets safer when traveling in cars," said Michael Leung, Sleepypod co-founder, and lead product designer. "The launch by Subaru of a new pet accessories line is a tremendous demonstration of their dedication to the well-being of pets."
All of these accessories are now available from Subaru Parts Online and at Subaru dealerships nationwide. Each one is put through stringent safety tests for static material tensile strength, using the same standard set for child safety restraints. Subaru is not the only automaker to offer pet accessories, as luxury automakers like Aston Martin and Jaguar offer them too.
