Active safety – to avoid accidents

To help you avoid accidents and protect you when they can’t be avoided, the Forester is equipped with active and passive safety features. Subaru Active Safety helps you circumvent trouble with predictable handling, precise control, excellent visibility, and advanced technologies that help you avoid incidents before they happen. Passive Safety features include systematically placed airbags, whiplash-reducing front seats, retracting pedals and 3-point seatbelts—all there to help protect you if the unthinkable occurs.

Tire Pressure Monitoring System

The TPMS (Tire Pressure Monitoring System) automatically controls your tire pressure and warns you, when it decreases. Thus you can timely recognize faultily pressurized or damaged tires and correctly pressurize or exchange them. This contributes to your safety and with optimal tire pressure you additionally save fuel and unnecessary tire wear.

Braking System

The standard 4-wheel disc braking system is enhanced by Antilock Braking System (ABS) with Electronic Brake-force Distribution, to help redistribute braking power where you need it among all four wheels, as well as Brake Assist and Brake Override for control in emergency braking situations. There’s also Auto Vehicle Hold, which helps prevent rollback when starting from a stop on any slope. The DIT model adds larger 17-inch ventilated discs in front and 16-inch ventilated discs for the rear, for even better braking performance.

Vehicle Dynamics Control System

Vehicle Dynamics Control System monitors and analyses if the vehicle is following the driver’s intended course via an array of sensors. If a tyre slips or a high speed turn causes the vehicle off its intended path, the AWD torque distribution, engine output and brakes at each wheel are adjusted to assist in keeping the vehicle on course.

Passive safety – For optimal protection in case of accidents

Standard on the Forester are front SRS* airbags, plus front-side, curtain SRS* airbags and knee SRS* airbags. Height-adjustable front seatbelts feature pretensioners to hold passengers firmly in place as well as load limiters that ease peak forces to the chest. In a rear collision, front seats utilise rigid frames, firm headrests and such details as energy-absorbing mounting of the inner seat springs—all to help reduce the chance of whiplash.

Ring-shaped Reinforcement Frame

The Ring-shaped Reinforcement Frame strengthens the passenger cabin’s roof, doors, pillars and floor. This design helps divert and dissipate impact energy away from the occupants in a collision by use of high-strength materials and strategic placements. Whilst making it stronger with increased torsional rigidity, the overall frame is still lightweight.

Seats, Seatbelts and SRS* Airbags

Standard on the Forester are front SRS* airbags, plus front-side, curtain SRS* airbags and knee SRS* airbags. Height-adjustable front seatbelts feature pretensioners to hold passengers firmly in place as well as load limiters that ease peak forces to the chest. In a rear collision, front seats utilise rigid frames, firm headrests and such details as energy-absorbing mounting of the inner seat springs—all to help reduce the chance of whiplash.

Cabin-protecting layout

Every Subaru goes above and beyond common practice when it comes to your safety. In the event of a head-on collision, your Forester’s SUBARU BOXER engine and gearbox are designed to avoid rushing into the cabin for your protection.
