With its rugged capability, spacious interior, and wealth of standard and available features, the new Subaru Forester offers everything you expect and more from an outstanding compact crossover. Here are a few things we like most about it.

Balanced Performance

Under the hood, the Forester is motivated by a 182-horsepower 2.5-liter four-cylinder boxer engine. This flat engine design features opposed cylinders that move in and out in sync. This setup results in better balance and less engine vibration. The boxer engine complements the Forester's standard Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive with half-axles of equal length. The balanced drivetrain forces, even weight distribution, and a low center of gravity combine to deliver confidence-inspiring handling characteristics for all conditions and road surfaces.

Additionally, the available X-Mode system further enhances the Foresters handling capabilities by automatically controlling the throttle, shift patterns, all-wheel drive, hill-descent control, and the Vehicle Dynamics Control System.

Advanced Safety Technology

Subaru's legendary safety reputation is on display in the Forester, with every trim level offering the EyeSight suite of advanced driver-assistance technologies. You don't have to move up the trim levels to enjoy the safety and security of features like:

  • Pre-Collision Warning
  • Pre-Collision Throttle Management
  • Automatic Emergency Braking
  • EyeSight Adaptive Cruise Control with Lane Centering
  • EyeSight Lane Keep Assist with Sway Warning

Optional safety features include a blind-spot monitoring system and rear cross-traffic alert with reverse automatic braking.

Ample and Versatile Interior Space

The Subaru Forester comfortably accommodates five riders with plenty of space for passengers up front and in the back. With all seats in use, Mesa drivers will still have 33 cubic feet for loading up their luggage or a large grocery haul. If you need even more carrying capacity, the 60/40-split rear seats fold down to expand the capacity to 71 cubic feet.
