    A pin code access on the rear gate’s lock request switch allows you to enter your Forester without your key. Simply enter a preset 5-digit code on the rear gate to gain access.

  • 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.

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

    Steering wheel-mounted controls place audio controls conveniently at your fingertips, and an available Bluetooth® (*1) hands-free system automatically links with your smartphone to help keep you focused on the road.

  • 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.

    Available for driver’s seat, this allows you to quickly find a comfortable and confident seating position by 8-way power adjustment.

  • Touchscreen Control

    Use the touchscreen to easily manage your music, just as you would on your smartphone. Simply connect your smartphone through Bluetooth® (*1) or the USB port, and you can choose your music right on the touchscreen.


    Like a built-in smartphone for your car, having the SUBARU STARLINK (*3) Infotainment System lets you access Internet radio, entertaining apps and much more. Control it with the tablet-like 7-inch centre touchscreen, multifunction steering wheel controls, or one-shot voice recognition (*2). If you can’t find your favourite music, connect your iPhone (*4), smartphone or other mobile music device via the USB or standard AUX jack.

  • Dual-zone Automatic Air-conditioning System

    This feature conveniently helps keep the temperature inside where you want it. It also allows the driver and front passenger to set different temperatures.

    Auxiliary power is at your fingertips with a 12-volt power outlet located in the centre console, centre console box and cargo space.

    With the convenience of an advanced voice recognition function, just tap the steering controls and speak naturally to search for points of interest, initiate a voice call, and play your favourite 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.

  • Digital Device Connectivity

    Plug your iPod (*4) or other mobile music device into the standard AUX and USB input jack, and your digital music plays through the Forester audio system.

  • One-touch Folding Switches

    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.

  • 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.

  • 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.
