Design

MADE TO MOVE.

  • As versatile as you are, the Forester offers quick and easy design solutions to accommodate many situations. The smartly designed framework allows for optimal handling as well as a flexible cargo area that can take on almost anything and everything.

Seating Arrangement

Widening the door openings and flattening the floor has expanded the interior room. This provides an exceptional level of comfort that can be found at all five seats.

Power Rear Gate

You’ll do enough reaching, pulling and lifting when you’re out there riding, climbing and living. The power rear gate will take some of the work out of loading. Use the switch on the instrument panel, the gate or the key fob and it opens or closes automatically.

TAKE IN THE VIEW.

  • The all-new Forester balances a sleek, modern design with all-out comfort. As you sit behind the wheel you will notice the attention to detail in the features that create an overall ease of use and increased functionality. The improved visibility from the higher seating position also adds confidence to the driving experience by providing the best view possible.

Instrument Cluster

The instrument panel of the Forester is designed to deliver information quickly and effortlessly. The tachometer and speedometer are clearly visible to help keep more focus on the road ahead.

High-Grade Multi-Function Display

Located conveniently in the instrument panel, informative car vitals are displayed at a touch of a button. It also features advanced environmental performance and efficiency–even allowing you to compare the efficiency between different trips.

Shifter Handle

A shift boot has been included for a more luxurious feel. The chrome-plated ring at the base of the leather boot on the soft black panel gives the interior a sense of luxury whilst being sporty.

DESIGNED WITH ROOM TO SPARE.

  • What’s Inside:

  • The combination of ingenious flexibility, large cargo capacity and convenient ways to store, hold and secure items make the Forester ready for every outing.

  • What It Does:

  • Whatever you are bringing, and however much you need, the Forester offers the capability and capacity to make it happen.

  • The cabin of the Forester immerses you and your passengers in modern comfort with an interior that’s even more refined and technology that keeps you connected without being distracted. Upgraded with an improved layout, its new design even makes getting in and out easier and more comfortable.

Digital Device Connectivity

Plug your iPod® (*1) or other mobile music device into the standard AUX and USB input jack, and your digital music plays through the Forester audio system.

Audio System

Audio information is displayed on the High-Grade Multi-Function Display screen, which is easy to see whilst driving. Compatible with most digital devices using USB/iPod® (*1) /Bluetooth® (*2) connectivity—Intelligent tune provides a comfortable musical environment.

Navigation System with Voice Recognition

The more advanced navigation system provides faster and more efficient guidance along with the convenience of an advanced voice recognition function. Activated with the steering wheel controls, just speak naturally to search for points of interest, initiate a voice call, and play your favorite songs.

Premium Audio System with Harman/Kardon Speakers

The 8-speaker, 440W system was designed for ultimate sound performance. Two oval-shaped speakers are placed in the front doors and two speakers are installed at the rear doors.

ALL SHAPES. ALL SIZES. ALL DAY.

  • The Forester is well prepared to keep up with your life, from planned vacations to spontaneous shopping. The expanded cargo area can accommodate four large suitcases or four golf-club bags, whilst a power rear gate, wider door openings and lower side sills help load and unload with ease. For longer items, the rear seats fold flat in a 60/40 split.

Cargo Capacity

The cargo space has been designed to provide easier loading and unloading. Fold the rear seats down for maximum cargo space to accommodate the bigger things in life.

Child Step

The backseat step was designed to ease entry and exiting for small children. To make your day go smoother, the wider, non-slip surface has been well placed so knees land on soft floor mats instead of hard plastic.

Side Sill

The side sills have been designed to be low as possible yet resist collecting dirt to keep your Forester looking clean. So they help shoes and clothes keep from collecting dirt as the family gets in and out on all the adventures you’ll be having.
