For generations, Forester has put safety first, front to back. And the Forester takes protecting your family to another level. Revolutionary facial recognition technology monitors the driver’s attention*, Reverse Automatic Braking*detects trouble you don’t see coming, and EyeSight® Driver Assist acts as a second set of eyes on the road. And that’s just the beginning.
Subaru EyeSight® Driver Assist technology is world-class and category-leading safety technology. With dual colour forward facing stereo cameras intelligently and discreetly located behind the windscreen, EyeSight® Driver Assist scans the road ahead for unanticipated dangers. It’s like having a second pair of eyes looking out for you. This advanced system provides extra awareness, safety, and added peace of mind every time you drive.
All Forester variants now include Lane Centring Function, Lane Departure Prevention and Autonomous Emergency Steering, designed to avoid frontal collisions, lane drifting and low speed impacts. It can ‘lock on’ to vehicles directly in front and, when used together with Adaptive Cruise Control, can slow, stop and accelerate to maintain a safe driving distance.
It also recognises pedestrians, motorcycles and cyclists within its field of vision. Depending on conditions, the Pre-Collision Braking System can help to minimise impact and damage. If the speed is less than 30 km/h, the car may be brought to a complete stop prior to impact.
The work Subaru have put into the revolutionary safety features in the Subaru Forester hasn’t gone unnoticed. ANCAP1 awarded it a 5-star safety rating solidifying its reputation as one of the safest SUVs on the market.
1. The Australasian New Car Assessment Program (ANCAP) gives consumers consistent information on the level of occupant protection provided by vehicles in serious front and side crashes.
Sometimes you have to stand your ground. With Auto Vehicle Hold, hydraulic brake pressure holds the Forester firmly in place and ensure the wheels keep their traction and you move forward without rolling back.
Distractions can happen at any moment, just ask any parent. Forester’s revolutionary Driver Monitoring System1 uses tech to keep you tuned in to the road. Driver Focus uses a camera to monitor the driver for signs of fatigue or distraction and warns them if it detects that the driver is not focused or keeping their eyes on the road ahead, for whatever reason. Forester's Driver Monitoring System1 also features advanced temperature adjustment, allowing you to have complete control of the temperature through simple hand gestures. This amazing feature helps you stay focused on the journey ahead.
