ACTIVE | Vehicle Dynamics Control System + Active Torque Vectoring

Vehicle Dynamics Control System adjusts AWD torque distribution, engine output, and brakes at each wheel to help keep the vehicle on course. And with Active Torque Vectoring, brakes are applied and less torque is distributed to the inside wheels and more to the outside wheels for more precise handling, helping you make sharp turns when necessary.

PASSIVE | Supplemental Restraint System (SRS)* Airbags

Front SRS* airbags, front side SRS* airbags, curtain SRS* airbags, and a knee SRS* airbag come standard on the Forester to give all passengers a higher level of protection in the event of a collision.

PASSIVE | Cabin-protecting Layout

The reinforced pillars and frame all work together within the Forester's SGP design to absorb collision impact from all sides to protect all passengers. In the event of a frontal collision, the engine and gearbox are designed to be pushed below the vehicle instead of crashing into the cabin.

SUBARU EYESIGHT

PREVENTIVE | Subaru EyeSight Driver Assist Technology

EyeSight*1, Subaru's cutting-edge driving support system, works like a second pair of eyes for the road ahead, using a pair of stereo cameras to capture colour images with excellent image recognition—nearly as capable as the human eye. When spotting potential danger, such as vehicles, motorbikes, bicycles, and pedestrians*2, it warns the driver and applies the brakes when necessary, enabling even more confident driving and peace of mind.

DISCLAIMER
*1 EyeSight is a driving support system which may not operate optimally under all driving conditions. The driver is always responsible for safe and attentive driving and observance of traffic regulations. System effectiveness depends on many factors such as vehicle maintenance, weather, and road conditions. See Owner’s Manual for complete details on system operation and limitations for EyeSight including functions in this brochure.
*2 Pre-Collision Braking System may not work in all situations. Depending on the speed difference from objects, the object’s height, and other conditions, every situation may not meet the necessary conditions for EyeSight to work optimally.

Adaptive Cruise Control

When it senses a vehicle in front, Adaptive Cruise Control maintains a set distance from the vehicle ahead by continuously monitoring the distance and speed difference and adjusting the engine, transmission, and brakes to keep your speed in line with traffic flow from about 0 km/h to 180 km/h. Designed for use on freeways, highways, and similar roads, it can detect a lead vehicle and its brake lamps to keep pace in stop-and-go highway traffic, reducing fatigue on long drives.

Lane Sway and Departure Warning

At speeds of about 60 km/h or more, Lane Sway Warning helps you stay alert with a buzzer and flashing indicator if it detects lane drift or sway. At speeds of about 50 km/h or more, Lane Departure Warning sends you a buzzer alert and flashing indicator when it detects lane departure without signaling.
