The perfect balance between work and play. Forester isn’t just a great city SUV, it’s a highly capable off-roader. Want to do more of the good stuff? Take Forester for a drive and feel the difference.

Stay grounded

Whether you’re driving on gravel or bitumen, Subaru’s award-winning Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive system will keep you grounded. By driving optimum traction and grip to all four wheels, all of the time, Forester ensures better handling and a rock-solid connection to the road. So traversing the track to an isolated stretch of river, makes the afternoon’s picnic time well spent.

Top gear

With Forester’s Lineartronic® CVT tweaked for improved and more responsive acceleration and better fuel economy, you can enjoy steady highway cruising and dynamic hill climbing. By increasing the gear ratio coverage range, the Forester engine operates in its optimal power range for better overall drivability and a seamless ride.

Insider advantage

Rebuilt from the ground up the new Subaru Forester rides on the recently introduced Subaru Global Platform. This new framework sets the stage for optimum cornering, handling, stability, riding comfort and unrivalled safety. With increased rigidity and a lower centre of gravity, the platform boosts Forester’s dynamic performance while reducing noise and vibration.

A mode to match your mood

Your driving reflects your mood and Subaru Intelligent Drive1 (SI-Drive) technology lets you embrace the moment. The SI-Drive system lets you choose between distinctly different driving modes. Intelligent (I) mode delivers a smooth, well-balanced response and improved fuel efficiency. While the performance enhancing Sport (S) mode, is perfect for those window down ‘blow away the cob webs’ kind of drives.
