Subaru Forester Features

Prepare for adventure in one of Australia’s favourite cars. A capable SUV made to do more of the good stuff, in city streets, a trip to the beach or whatever fun your family has in store. Clever, safe and with all the comforts of the latest technology. In the Forester, there’s nothing you can’t do.

Made for everyday adventuring with the family, Forester is built for handling the toughest weekends and the busiest streets, so you've got time to get more done and have more fun.



No Mountain High Enough

Feel the freedom of knowing that Forester can take you anywhere. The Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive system is boosted with 220mm of ground clearance so you can cruise through urban and rural adventures, no worries.


Stretch Out and Explore

Pack more into your life, with a spacious cabin allowing room for all the kids and everything that comes with them. Up front, the ergonomically designed cockpit puts the driver in the perfect position. Down back, you can expand the already generous space by folding the rear seats flat, or using the 60/40 mode for larger loads.


Cruise in Comfort

Your passengers in the back can enjoy ample legroom, reclining seats, and a retractable centre console with cup holders. And if you want to upgrade the luxury even more, try leather2 seat trim in selected models. 



Tap, Tap, Go

Your seamless driving experience is complete, with a bigger, brighter 7” LCD screen. It has both voice and touchscreen functionality, while the full colour display ensures a crisp and clear view both day and night, with bold and easy-to-understand graphics for easy use.


Sat Nav Gets You There

Forget about arguments over directions. Sit back and let the satellite navigation system show you the way. Built into the infotainment unit, it features full colour display and clear, simple audio instructions. Featured as standard in Forester 2.5i-S, Forester XT Premium and Forester 2.0D-S models only.


One Step Ahead

Enjoy power steering, power windows, and power mirrors, making your life even easier. Add easy access to your audio, smartphone and more, with easy access to steering wheel controls. Then you could let the sunshine in with an electric sunroof in selected models, or block it back out with sophisticated privacy glass in the rear.



All-Wheel Power

With the superior grip of the legendary Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive system, Forester is prepared for any road, track 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 suburban roads much safer.


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.


Smart to Sporty

Forester is smart enough to adapt its driving style to suit your day, thanks to Subaru Intelligent Drive (SI-Drive). Choose from Intelligent (I) mode for everyday driving. Sport (S) mode for enhanced acceleration and sporty performance. And SportSharp (S#) mode available on turbocharged petrol variants – for a truly exhilarating drive.

Your Extra Pair of Eyes

Features of the Forester

  • Enjoy the bright 7" LCD touchscreen entertainment unit, the leather-wrapped steering wheel and the dual zone climate control air-conditioning. Then plug into two USB ports and make use of Bluetooth®1 and Pandora® compatibility for all your favourite tunes.
  • You also have the single CD player, AM/FM radio and USB connectivity for your smartphone or iPod®. All playing crisply through your surround sound system – or in the Forester 2.0 XT Premium, through your state-of-the-art harmon kardon® speakers.
  • The petrol range includes a 2.0 litre four-cylinder engine, which produces 110kW of power at 6200rpm and 198Nm of torque at 4200rpm, with only a 7.2 litres fuel consumption per 100km1.
  • Go even further with the Forester turbocharged 2.0-litre four-cylinder DOHC Diesel engine, capable of travelling over 1,000km2 on a single tank.
  • EyeSight®driver assist is like your second pair of eyes, spotting potentially dangerous situations like cyclists up ahead. It alerts you to take action, and applies the brakes automatically if you don't.
  • Forester comes with a rear view reverse camera as standard in every model. The rear view camera is like having eyes in the back of your head – it shows you when there’s a child, dog or any kind of rear obstacle in your way.
  • SAWD makes Forester even more responsive. All the wheels powering forward, delivers much more driving enjoyment than a rear-wheel or a four-wheel drive can.
  • Switch the car into X-Mode for even more grip and traction when you’re driving in low speed, slippery conditions – as standard in selected models.
  • Thanks to its clever combination of collision protection technology, Forester has achieved the maximum five-star ANCAP safety rating. This is a result of an incredibly rigorous safety innovation program, which includes seven SRS airbags dual front, dual front side, curtain-style and drivers-knee and a whiplash reducing design.
  • Sudden stopping. Surprise roadworks and hairpin turns. Forester is ready for extreme conditions with its electronic driver assist system called Vehicle Dynamics Control (VDC). Featuring a range of stability and braking technologies, the VDC system steps in to help maintain your safety in extreme situations.
