The standard 4-wheel disc brakes feature lightweight aluminium rear calipers and a strong, reassuring brake feel. The Antilock Braking System (ABS) includes Electronic Brake-force Distribution, to reapportion front/rear braking pressure when the vehicle is loaded. To ensure maximum braking during an emergency, the Forester features both Brake Assist and Brake Override. There’s also Subaru Hill Holder that helps prevent rollback when starting off on a 5% or steeper grade, by applying the electronic parking brake and automatically releasing it once you’re underway. The DIT model adds larger 17-inch ventilated discs in front and 16-inch ventilated discs for the rear, further enhancing the overall driving performance over many surfaces you may encounter.
