The 2017 Subaru Forester

There's a whole lot to love.


The go-anywhere capability of Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive provides uniform stability and delivers an optimal distribution of power for maximum traction. It also makes for improved handling and a quicker response to road conditions.

8.7 inches of ground clearance and available X-MODE can help you overcome difficult terrains and conditions. And as a compact crossover, the Forester is as ideal for navigating day-to-day routes on city pavement as it is for traversing rustic paths.

Open and close the available power rear gate at the push of a button on your key fob, by controls on the dashboard or the gate itself. You can also adjust the gate's open height.


Available Subaru EyeSight® Driver Assist Technology104 automatically monitors traffic movement, optimizes cruise control, and warns you when you're swaying outside your lane. It can even help slow your vehicle down when danger is lurking.

Built for the long run. The Subaru Forester is the longest-lasting compact crossover, with 98% of Forester models sold in the last 10 years still on the road today.

SUBARU STARLINK in-vehicle technology with Pandora® app integration brings smartphone entertainment and communication to your dashboard. And available STARLINK Safety & Security Connected Services bring additional peace of mind to every drive.

Using radar sensors, the available Blind-Spot Detection system warns you with a visual indicator in each side mirror if a vehicle is sensed in your blind spots. And Rear Cross Traffic Alert provides even further driver awareness of vehicle surroundings.


Available all-new Saddle Brown leather-trimmed upholstery with contrast stitching brings comfort and style. Matching door trim, lower dash inserts, and center console storage lid complete the modern look and feel.

An available heated steering wheel and heated front seats with driver memory help you warm up faster and keep comfort a quick touch away.

The Forester offers an available 8-speaker, Harman Kardon 440-watt equivalent premium audio system with 7-inch high-resolution touch-screen, and SiriusXM™ Satellite Radio.

An available power tilt/sliding-glass panoramic moonroof lets you feel the breeze, brighten the day and check out the stars.


2.0XT models feature a 250-horsepower Direct-Injection Turbocharged (DIT) SUBARU BOXER® engine that adds power and performance to the adventurous side of Forester.

Its aggressive, sport-designed front fascia makes a bold statement. Its rear spoiler and dual exhaust add the exclamation point.

More power and a set of machine-finished 18-inch alloy wheels, because who knows where your big list of tasks may take you.
