Features such as the control and handling of Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive and an extensive protection system show that your safety is always at the forefront of Subaru design.
EYESIGHT® DRIVER ASSIST
The available EyeSight® Driver Assist system automatically monitors traffic movement, optimizes cruise control and warns you when you're swaying outside your lane. It can even help slow down the car when danger is lurking. Another way Subaru designs vehicles with your safety in mind.

SYMMETRICAL ALL-WHEEL DRIVE
Subaru Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive flows power to all wheels simultaneously for maximum traction. And in slippery conditions, it instinctively sends power to the wheels with the best traction, helping you stay on the road and on course.

Blind Spot Detection, Rear Cross-Traffic Alert and Reverse Automatic Braking
Using radar sensors, the Blind Spot Detection system warns you if it senses a vehicle within your blind spot. Rear Cross Traffic Alert lets you know if traffic is approaching from the side as you're backing up, while Reverse Automatic Braking can automatically apply brakes to help prevent a backing collision.

SUBARU BOXER® ENGINE
The horizontal layout of the SUBARU BOXER® engine allows for a low center of gravity for improved response. It also sits low in the frame, helping it to drive under the chassis in a front-end collision, protecting the passenger area.

Vehicle Dynamics Control (VDC)
VDC, a stability control system, automatically senses steering and braking inputs to help keep the vehicle on your intended path.
Standard on: All models
Advanced Protection System
Every Forester features a total of seven airbags, including front, front seat side pelvis/torso, side-curtain and driver’s knee airbags. The advanced system uses an array of sensors to help deploy the airbags in the most effective way possible.
The ring-shaped reinforcement frame is designed to shield and protect in a collision. Made of high-tensile-strength steel, it directs impact energy around the passenger compartment rather than through it.
