Auto On/Off Headlamps

A light sensor turns on the headlamps automatically at dusk, and shuts them off when you remove the key from the ignition.

4-way Steering Column

To help set your optimum driving position, the adjustable steering wheel tilts up-down and telescopes in-out.

Switches in the cargo area automatically fold each of the 60/40 split rear seatbacks, expanding the luggage space with remarkable ease.

Retractable Cargo Cover

The cargo cover is retractable or removable, and features a rigid, lightweight aluminium frame.

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.
