Go to new places. See new sights. Revel in new experiences. This is the essence of adventure—and the inspiration for the redesigned Forester. With capability in its DNA, the Forester is ready to take you farther than ever before. With the safety to be able to protect you and your family, along with passenger-ready versatility, your adventures can be shared with the ones you love

Steering Responsive Headlights (SRH)*

When rounding a curve at night, the illumination direction of the headlights moves left or right according to the steering wheel to ensure visibility (*Optional)

Headlamp Washers*

Pop-up washers use a high-pressure spray to help keep the headlamps at their peak performance in poor weather. (*Optional)

Fog Lamps*

Multi-reflector fog lamps also serve as daytime running lights, and emit a wide, flat beam that reflects less glare in fog, for added safety (*Optional)

18-inch Aluminium-alloy Wheels*

The 2.0XT model is equipped with multi-spoke 18-inch aluminium-alloy wheels and 225/55R18 tyres (*Optional)

Roof Spoiler

Adds to aerodynamic appeal and enhances the sporty, high-performance image

Roof Rails

Sturdy roof rails make hauling extra items a snap. You’ll find the Forester has a lot of ways to get the job done

Cruise Control

One-touch control allows the driver to set and maintain a steady cruising speed, convenient for long-distance driving on open motorways

Touchscreen Control

Use the touchscreen to easily manage your music, just as you would on your smartphone. Simply connect your smartphone through Bluetooth®* or the USB port, and you can choose your music right on the touchscreen

Dual-zone Automatic Air-conditioning System*

This feature conveniently helps keep the temperature inside where you want it. It also allows the driver and front passenger to set different temperatures (*Optional)

Three 12V Power Outlets

Auxiliary power is at your fingertips with a 12-volt power outlet located in the centre console, centre console box and cargo space

8-way Power Adjustable Driver’s Seat*

This allows you to find a comfortable seating position by 8-way power adjustment. In models with leather interior, a 2-seat position memory function has been added (*Optional)

Aluminium Pedals*

Select models feature sporty and stylish aluminium pads studded with grips and fitted to the pedals and driver’s footrest (*Optional)

One-touch Folding Switches*

Switches in the cargo area automatically fold each of the 60/40 split rear seatbacks, expanding the luggage space with remarkable ease (*Optional)

Rear Seat Armrest with Cup Holders*

The rear armrest is for your passengers in the backseat. They can use it as an armrest as well as a cup holder (*Optional)

Retractable Cover

Use the retractable cover to protect your valuable cargo from prying eyes or excessive sunlight. When not in use, it rolls up, easily accessible for future use

Power Glass Sunroof*

The large, internally sliding sunroof with manual sunshade delivers a panoramic view and fresh breezes for front and rear passengers. (*Optional)

Cargo Capacity

With a nearly square rear gate and flat-folding rear seats, the Forester has the versatility to hold a rear occupant and a bike at the same time

Carry more. Do more.

The Forester cargo space has been designed to provide easier loading and unloading. Fold the rear seats down for maximum cargo space to accommodate the bigger things in life

Subaru Boxer Engine

The boxer engine derives its name from the horizontal movement of its pistons, which resembles the quick, jab-like motions of a boxer’s fists. Although not a global standard, Subaru remains solely committed to the SUBARU BOXER engine because it embodies the Subaru promise of delivering enjoyment and peace of mind to all passengers. It also represents our steadfast commitment to technological innovation and engineering excellence

Why Lineartronic?

Subaru Lineartronic Continuously Variable Transmission (CVT) incorporates two adjustable pulleys with a chain link for stepless gear ratio. This feature ensures a smooth and comfortable driving experience with optimum power at any speed for better fuel efficiency

Why Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive?

Subaru Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive system evenly and continuously distributes power to all four wheels. This stable layout, with even weight distribution, gives the vehicle better overall balance and precision cornering control, allowing sufficient traction in slippery conditions to help keep you safe in bad weather and uneven roads

Rear Vehicle Detection

Subaru Rear Vehicle Detection (SRVD) uses sensors placed around the vehicle to alert you of vehicles in your rear blind spots for safer lane changes, and can also warn you of potential collision danger, whilst driving in reverse into a street with cross traffic *1*2

*1 The driver is always responsible for safe and attentive driving and observance of traffic regulations. Please do not depend solely on the Advanced Safety Package features for safe driving. There are limitations to the recognition features of this system. See Owner’s Manual for complete details on system operation and limitations. Please ask your retailer for more details.
*2 Optional

Seats, Seatbelts and SRS* Airbags

Standard on Forester are front SRS* airbags, plus front-side, curtain SRS* airbags and knee SRS* airbags. Height-adjustable front seatbelts feature pretensioners to hold passengers firmly in place, and load limiters that ease peak forces to the chest. In a rear collision, front seats utilise rigid frames, firm headrests and such details as energy-absorbing mounting of the inner seat springs, all to help reduce the chance of whiplash

* SRS: Supplemental Restraint System. Effective when used in conjunction with seatbelts

Vehicle Dynamics Control System

Vehicle Dynamics Control System monitors and analyses if the vehicle is following the driver’s intended course via an array of sensors. If a tyre slips or a high speed turn causes the vehicle off its intended path, the AWD torque distribution, engine output and brakes at each wheel are adjusted to assist in keeping the vehicle on course

Ring-shaped Reinforcement Frame

The Ring-shaped Reinforcement Frame strengthens the passenger cabin’s roof, doors, pillars and floor. This design helps divert and dissipate impact energy away from the occupants in a collision by use of high-strength materials and strategic placements. Whilst making it stronger with increased torsional rigidity, the overall frame is still lightweight

Dedicated to safety

As with all Subaru vehicles, the Subaru Impreza subscribes to the brand’s unrelenting pursuit of ultimate vehicle safety. Featuring five-star safety ratings from Euro NCAP and ANCAP, the Impreza also received the US IIHS’s coveted Top Safety Pick award, placing it at the very top of the list of the world’s safest vehicles. This makes it the only small car to earn top ratings in all IIHS evaluations
