Subaru Award-winning Safety

It’s under the most challenging circumstances that you find the true value of
what you drive. All-new SUBARU STARLINK Safety & Security connected
services offer instant access to help when you need it most 24/7, 365 days a
year.1 And with the available EyeSight® Driver Assist Technology and seven
standard airbags, this Forester is engineered to be at its best in a worst-
case scenario.2,3

Passenger Protection

To help keep occupants safe, we included seven standard
airbags, including a driver’s knee airbag for extra protection
in the event of a crash.3

All-around Protection

Should the unexpected happen, you can count on the exceptionally
strong Ring-shaped Reinforcement Frame to help protect everyone inside.

Increased Awareness

Like an extra pair of eyes for the road ahead, the available EyeSight® Driver Assist
Technology2 is a vigilant safety feature that gives peace of mind to every drive.
Monitoring the road ahead, it warns you when it spots potential danger and can
intervene to help you avoid it. When you’re backing up, the standard Rear-Vision
Camera gives you a clearer view of the area behind your vehicle, so you can be in
charge of your surroundings.

Exceptional Control

Subaru Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive helps keep things stable in emergency
maneuvers, while VDC electronic stability control can detect loss of control
and intervene to help keep you on your intended path.

Stopping Power

Confidence in braking comes from its powerful and reliable disc brakes
with advanced Brake Assist that helps ensure maximum pressure is
applied when you need it.

1   Activation required and subscription sold separately. Includes one year trial subscription. See your retailer for details.
2   EyeSight is a driver assist technology, which may not operate optimally under all driving conditions. The driver is always responsible for safe and attentive driving. System effectiveness depends on many factors such as vehicle maintenance, weather and road conditions. See Owner’s Manual for complete details on system operations and limitations. Please remember to turn off EyeSight when going through a carwash.
3   The Supplemental Restraint System (SRS) (airbags) affords the driver and the front and rear outboard passengers additional protection in moderate to severe frontal and side-impact collisions. This system provides supplemental protection only, and seatbelts must be worn to avoid injuries to out-of-position occupants upon airbag deployment and to provide the best combined protection in a serious accident. Children should always be properly restrained in the rear seat.
