X-MODE WITH HILL DESCENT CONTROL

Negotiating steep, extreme terrain is a challenge - even for the most experienced SUV or off-road driver.

Available across selected Forester, Outback and XV models with lineartronic transmission, SUBARU’s X-Mode with Hill Descent Control gives you reassuring control with the best possible grip at the push of a button. Navigate poor roads and tracks, wet or icy surfaces and challenging hills – calmly, safely and surely.

When activated, X-Mode with Hill Descent Control takes command of the engine, transmission, Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive, brakes, and other components to provide the best traction and grip in difficult conditions. You control the steering as normal. When climbing steep hills, X-Mode automatically helps maintain a constant, controlled speed and maximum traction. When descending, Hill Descent Control ensures your vehicle speed doesn’t increase, managing the braking to provide a controlled, smooth descent.

Some features not available on all models. Please check model specification.
