Forester
Responsible. Reliable.
Ready to join the family.
At Subaru, we’re committed to building a lasting, rewarding relationship with
you and the world we share. We start by building our vehicles to last—it’s why
96% of all the vehicles we’ve built in the last 10 years are still on the road
today.1 We also share your desire for a cleaner, greener world. The Forester,
Impreza, Legacy and Outback have all been recognized with Partial Zero
Emission Vehicle—PZEV2—status because of their exceptionally low emissions.
What’s more, in 2004 Subaru of Indiana Automotive, Inc. (SIA) became the first
manufacturing facility in the U.S. to reach zero landfill status—nothing from its
manufacturing efforts ever goes into a landfill.
Find out more about our efforts to
keep it cleaner and greener.

Interior Features
Settle into the driver’s seat, and you’ll find yourself in a
spacious cabin, surrounded by amenities designed for you
and your passengers’ convenience and comfort. Those
in the rear are sure to appreciate the reclining rear seats1,
your front passenger will like having a height-adjustable
seat, and everyone will enjoy the sunshine and fresh air
flowing in from the optional oversized panoramic moonroof.
Add in available dual-zone climate control, and your only
problem may be getting your passengers to leave.

Subaru Symmetrical AWD
Rewarding Technology
With an almost perfectly symmetrical layout, our
unique all-wheel drive system offers better balance
for stability and a more efficient flow of power to all
four wheels for greater grip and control.
Available features like dual-zone climate control
help keep you comfortable, while iPod® control,
HD Radio™ with iTunes® tagging, satellite radio
and Bluetooth® hands-free connectivity keep you
connected and entertained.
Passenger Protection
Interior Versatility
Exceptional Control
Ground Clearance
Our body structure design, with the Ringshaped Reinforcement Frame, is engineered to
be exceptionally strong for maximum resistance
to impact energy, while an array of airbags—all
standard—further help prevent injury.
Insightful features like the multifunction center
console, and the retractable rear tray1 help keep
your stuff neatly under control. While a spacious
cargo area and a 60/40 split-folding rear
seatback make loading, hauling and handling
cargo easy.
The balance and stability of the SUBARU BOXER®
engine and the grip of Subaru AWD help give
you the power to avoid danger. That poise is
combined with VDC electronic stability control,
which can intervene to help you stay in control.
It may have the driving manners of a sedan,
but the Forester features a rugged, 4-wheel
independent suspension with up to 8.9 inches
of ground clearance—enough to allow you to
indulge your adventurous side.

Vehicle Dynamics Control (VDC)
Standard VDC electronic stability control utilizes sensors which constantly monitor wheel speeds, steering angle, brake
pressure, vehicle yaw rate and lateral g-forces. If VDC detects a difference between the driver’s intended path and the
one the vehicle is actually taking, VDC applies braking power and/or reduces engine torque to help correct vehicle path.
Traction Control System (TCS)
VDC also incorporates an all-wheel, all-speed traction control system which senses a loss of traction and applies braking force
to the slipping wheel or wheels as necessary to maintain vehicle motion.

Responsible. Reliable.
Ready to join the family.
At Subaru, we’re committed to building a lasting, rewarding relationship with
you and the world we share. We start by building our vehicles to last—it’s why
96% of all the vehicles we’ve built in the last 10 years are still on the road
today.1 We also share your desire for a cleaner, greener world. The Forester,
Impreza, Legacy and Outback have all been recognized with Partial Zero
Emission Vehicle—PZEV2—status because of their exceptionally low emissions.
What’s more, in 2004 Subaru of Indiana Automotive, Inc. (SIA) became the first
manufacturing facility in the U.S. to reach zero landfill status—nothing from its
manufacturing efforts ever goes into a landfill.
Find out more about our efforts to
keep it cleaner and greener.
