Made to Move

As versatile as you are, the Forester offers quick and easy design solutions to accommodate many situations.

Power Rear Gate

You’ll do enough reaching, pulling and lifting when you’re out there riding, climbing and living. The power rear gate will take some of the work out of loading. Use the switch on the instrument panel, the gate or the key fob and it opens or closes automatically.

Side Sill

The side sills have been designed to be low as possible yet resist collecting dirt to keep your Forester looking clean. So they help shoes and clothes keep from collecting dirt as the family gets in and out on all the adventures you’ll be having.

Child Step

The backseat step was designed to ease entry and exiting for small children. To make your day go smoother, the wider, non-slip surface has been well placed so knees land on soft floor mats instead of hard plastic.

Take in the view.

The Forester balances a sleek, modern design with all-out comfort. As you sit behind the wheel, you will notice the attention to detail in the features that create an overall ease of use and increased functionality. The improved visibility from the higher seating position also adds confidence to the driving experience by providing the best view possible.

Designed with room to spare.

The cabin of the Forester immerses you and your passengers in modern comfort with an interior that gives you the roominess you need and the versatility to use it. To fit your behaviour and needs, every useful feature of the Forester is thoughtfully placed to be right where you need it, when you need it. With a spacious, intelligent layout, it’s designed to make tasks simpler, and driving more comfortable.

Informed, entertained and connected.

Going on the road doesn't mean you'll have to leave in all behind. Stay grounded, yet undistracted with technology that's intuitive and easy to use. The Forester keeps you connected, on course with infotainment, navigation and audio systems that you can either control with the touch of your fingertips or the sound of your voice. And with smartphone and iPhone (*1) connectivity, you're never free of your peers or playlists.

All shapes. All day.

The Forester is well prepared to keep up with your life, from planned vacations to spontaneous hiking expeditions. The wide cargo area can accommodate four large suitcases and even the most bulky adventure gear, whilst a power rear gate, wider door openings and lower side sills help load and unload with ease. For longer items, the rear seats fold flat in a 60/40 split.
