Balanced design for a balanced life

Beloved by Subaru owners the world over since 1997, the Forester continues to plough its own furrow in the SUV segment. If you don’t want to follow the herd and value function over fashion, the Forester is the perfect choice. Capable, spacious and now bristling with even more features, the Forester manages to combine rugged rural appeal off road with refined and engaging manners on road.

The Diesel Lineartronic is here

Subaru’s advanced 7-speed Lineartronic CVT transmission is now available with the Boxer diesel engine. Combined with ‘X-mode’ hill descent control and symmetrical all wheel drive, there is little the Forester cannot tackle. But it’s not just about being tough on the outside; the 2016 Forester’s premium interior boasts a vast array of standard equipment and new state of art touch screen infotainment options.
