THE NO-NONSENSE SUV. EVOLVED TO EXPLORE.
With Subaru’s hybrid technology, the 2.0L petrol e-BOXER engine works seamlessly with the electric motor to deliver a more rewarding driving experience on every type of journey.
Whatever the weather, wherever you want to go, this reliable workhorse will get you there. It’s calm, understated and up for any challenge.
YOUR SAFETY IS OUR PRIORITY
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.
FOR ALL-YEAR-ROUND CONFIDENCE
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.
DESIGNED WITH YOU IN MIND
At the push of a button, the powered tailgate gives you instant access to Forester’s spacious boot. With a wide opening and square design, it’s easy to organise, load and unload any object – so there’s plenty of room to pack everything you need for every type of trip. Once you’ve loaded up, just tap the button on the tailgate to watch it automatically close and lock.
Discover the winning difference
Forester’s hat-trick of ‘best in class’ achievements are testimony to Subaru’s ongoing commitment to build cars that deliver outstanding safety, capability and reliability – vehicles that are truly better where it matters.
Fitted as standard to all Forester models, our brand new Subaru Driver Monitoring System won the Technology Award at the 2020 What Car? Awards, being recognised as “the most advanced of its kind”. In testing it proved to be more accurate at identifying when concentration was lost compared to other manufacturer systems.
Forester has been named Best in Class 2019 in the Small Off-Road/MPV class in the Euro NCAP 2019 safety performance test, with outstanding scores in all four assessment areas. It also achieved the highest score ever (91%) in its class for ‘Child Occupant Protection’.
Forester has also won 4x4 Magazine’s Best Small SUV of the Year 2020 award. Beating off strong competition, Forester impressed the judging panel across the board thanks to its comprehensive range of safety technologies, on-road driveability and outstanding off-road capabilities.
