Subaru Forester has a range of active and passive safety technologies fitted as standard. It’s built on the Subaru Global Platform chassis for improved stability, higher rigidity, increased strength, better rolling resistance and more responsive steering. This further enhances Forester’s superior safety credentials – which include the maximum 5-star Euro NCAP safety rating.

In fact, this self charging hybrid SUV achieved the highest ever score for a vehicle in its category in Euro NCAP’s Child Occupant Protection test.

Forester features a multitude of safety technologies, keeping you and your family protected, informed and secure. These include EyeSight driver assist technology (including Adaptive Cruise Control and Pre-Collision Braking), Subaru Rear Vehicle Detection and a Driver Monitoring System.

Permanent Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive (SAWD) gives you optimum control in all conditions. On and off road, Forester remains adventurous, yet also reassuringly safe.

The Subaru Forester offers outstanding capability in all conditions. 

Permanent Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive gives the driver maximum confidence and control at all times by continuously shifting power to the wheels that have the most traction, ensuring excellent road-holding – whatever the weather or terrain.

With 220mm ground clearance, this self charging hybrid SUV effortlessly negotiates rocky tracks, shallow streams and more with all the dependability and reliability you’d expect from a Subaru SUV.

If you’re facing steep, extreme terrain, expert support is instantly at hand. At the twist of a dial, two-stage X-MODE with Hill Descent Control will manage the power, braking and SAWD system for you, ensuring optimal traction and grip when it matters – so you can concentrate on steering a safe route through the mud, ruts and rocks.

Forester e-BOXER has been awarded a trio of top industry accolades – in addition to Subaru being voted Best Manufacturer for Safety Features in the 2019 Driver Power Survey, the UK’s no.1 car ownership survey. 

Forester’s hat-trick of ‘best in class’ achievements are testimony to Subaru’s ongoing commitment to build cars that deliver outstanding safety, capability and reliability – vehicles that are truly better where it matters. 

Fitted as standard to all Forester models, our brand new Subaru Driver Monitoring System won the Technology Award at the 2020 What Car? Awards, being recognised as “the most advanced of its kind”. In testing it proved to be more accurate at identifying when concentration was lost compared to other manufacturer systems. 

Forester has been named Best in Class 2019 in the Small Off-Road/MPV class in the Euro NCAP 2019 safety performance test, with outstanding scores in all four assessment areas. It also achieved the highest score ever (91%) in its class for ‘Child Occupant Protection’. 

This self charging hybrid SUV has also won 4x4 Magazine’s Best Small SUV of the Year 2020 award. Beating off strong competition, Forester impressed the judging panel across the board thanks to its comprehensive range of safety technologies, on-road driveability and outstanding off-road capabilities.
