Exterior & Interior Features
The cabin has been upgraded with high-quality, soft-touch materials and contrast stitching throughout, along with available leather interiors.
The all-new Forester offers even more room for comfort, with exceptional passenger volume. And now the second row even offers available heated seats, A/C vents, and USB ports to bring front-seat comfort to every passenger.
A Power Rear Gate is available to allow opening and closing even when your hands are occupied, and now opens, closes, and locks the entire vehicle with the touch of a button.
With an available panoramic Sunroof, the Forester provides an open, airy experience for all.
The balanced design of Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive creates uniform stability and delivers an optimal distribution of power for maximum traction in virtually any weather or road condition.
X-Mode with Snow/Dirt and Deep Snow/Mud mode now available. With 220mm of ground clearance and available X-MODE with Hill Descent Control, almost any destination is within reach. X-MODE optimizes the Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive system for maximum traction on slippery surfaces.
The Forester now incorporates Active Torque Vectoring to brake wheels closer to the corner, and distribute additional torque to the opposite wheels for better cornering ability.
Our Boxer engine which powers every Subaru model has a horizontally opposed design and boasts a low centre of gravity that helps create more balanced handling, flatter cornering and greater stability on every type of road.
Dedicated to Safety
Pre-collision Braking helps to gradually slow or stop the car completely when it sees a panic braking situation unfolding ahead of you.
Adaptive Cruise Control maintains a set speed and will automatically adjust to keep a safe distance from the car ahead. It is also capable of bringing your vehicle to a full stop and resume your settings as traffic begins to flow again.
Lane Departure and Sway Warning both activate a chime sound when your vehicle begins to drift or is too close to another lane. This alert helps to keep you on the straight and narrow.
Pre-collision Throttle Management is designed to cut power from an absent-minded start, if it detects a potentially hazardous object is in your way.
With available Reverse Automatic Braking, your vehicle can even stop itself to help avoid objects behind you.
7 airbags standard across all models including a Driver’s Knee Airbag protect you in the event of a collision.
Fewer blind spots ensure that you can maintain a clear view from the driver’s seat of your loved ones around the vehicle.
Rear Cross-Traffic Alert helps warn you of traffic approaching from the side as you are backing up, and a standard Rear-Vision Camera enhances visibility when reversing.
