All-new Forester has a range of active and passive safety technologies fitted as standard. It’s built on the Subaru Global Platform chassis for improved stability, higher rigidity, increased strength, better rolling resistance and more responsive steering. This further enhances Forester’s superior safety credentials – which include the maximum 5-star Euro NCAP safety rating.

In fact, Forester achieved the highest ever score for a vehicle in its category in Euro NCAP’s Child Occupant Protection test.

Forester features a multitude of safety technologies, keeping you and your family protected, informed and secure. These include EyeSight driver assist technology (including Adaptive Cruise Control and Pre-Collision Braking), Subaru Rear Vehicle Detection and a Driver Monitoring System.

Permanent Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive (SAWD) gives you optimum control in all conditions. On and off road, Forester remains adventurous, yet also reassuringly safe.


Forester offers outstanding capability in all conditions.

Permanent Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive gives the driver maximum confidence and control at all times by continuously shifting power to the wheels that have the most traction, ensuring excellent road-holding – whatever the weather or terrain.

With 220mm ground clearance, Forester effortlessly negotiates rocky tracks, shallow streams and more with all the dependability and reliability you’d expect from a Subaru SUV.

If you’re facing steep, extreme terrain, expert support is instantly at hand. At the twist of a dial, two-stage X-MODE with Hill Descent Control will manage the power, braking and SAWD system for you, ensuring optimal traction and grip when it matters – so you can concentrate on steering a safe route through the mud, ruts and rocks.
