The 2.0XT model is equipped with multi-spoke 18-inch aluminium-alloy wheels and 225/55R18 tyres. (* Optional.)
Sturdy roof rails make hauling extra items a snap. You’ll find the Forester has a lot of ways to get the job done.
One-touch control allows the driver to set and maintain a steady cruising speed, convenient for long-distance driving on open motorways.
Switches in the cargo area automatically fold each of the 60/40 split rear seatbacks, expanding the luggage space with remarkable ease.(* Optional)
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, and also 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.
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.
