The Subaru Forester is an ideal choice for those who want a vehicle capable of tackling both the tarmac and rough terrain. For starters, it’s underpinned by the Subaru Global Platform which improves handling and stability through increased rigidity, a lower center of gravity, and improvements to the steering and suspension system.

More than 100 safety features can be found on the Forester, chief of which is the EyeSight Driver Assist Technology across the range, that looks ahead and alerts the driver at the first sign of danger. A high driving position, slim pillars, large windows, and optimal placement of the side mirrors all minimize blind spots and enhance both frontal and peripheral visibility.

Inside, the Forester offers a spacious cabin with 800mm of class-leading rear access, for easier ingress and egress as well as installation of child safety seats.

The 1300mm opening allows long objects such as golf bags and other equipment to be carried sideways, maximizing interior space.

Power comes in the form of a 2.0L DOHC direct-injection engine generating 156 hp and 196 Nm of torque, mated to a continuously variable transmission. A 220mm ground clearance and 500mm wading depth deliver confidence in driving through unpredictable road and weather conditions.

The vehicle’s X-Mode function works with Subaru’s trademark Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive system to take on steep curves, making use of Hill Descent Control which automatically deploys the brakes on steep descents.
