In true Subaru style, the Forester uses our Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive (SAWD) system that gives you optimum control and more traction capacity compared to a two-wheel drive car. Because four wheels grip better than two. It’s active safety at its best.

Legendary Boxer engine

Less noise, more power. The impressive engine performance of Forester is at the core of its appeal. Sitting lower and flatter in the engine bay, the famous Subaru Boxer engine is designed to create less noise and vibration in the cabin, whilst the lower centre of gravity improves stability and traction on the road, meaning you can corner with even more confidence.

Performance

All-wheel power

With the superior grip of the legendary Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive system, Forester is prepared for any road or rugged mountain ahead. It grips the road with all four wheels, giving you double the traction capacity, greater precision and even more cornering power. 

This makes driving on wet, slippery roads much safer than. And in low speed, slippery conditions, X-Mode will help see you through safely – available in LineartronicTM CVT models only.
