A rush of power when you crave it, the turbocharged SUBARU BOXER® engine features 250 horsepower and 258 lb-ft of torque delivered across a wide range. There’s also custom performance at the push of a button with the Subaru Intelligent Drive (SI-DRIVE) that enables three distinctive performance modes. Now fun to do is also fun to drive.
Subaru Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive continually keeps the power routed to all four wheels, ensuring an outstanding grip in snow, rain or rough road. And it’s great at handling steep inclines and harsher terrain.
When danger steps into your path, the safest course is to step around it. The signature traction, stability and control of Subaru Symmetrical AWD help you steer clear of trouble.
The pistons move horizontally in 180-degree opposition to each other, so each naturally cancels out the vibrations of the other. The end result is smooth and controlled power.
The balanced design of Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive creates uniform stability and delivers an optimal distribution of power for maximum traction. It makes for improved handling, efficiency and a quicker response to road conditions.
Like all Subaru models, every Forester is built in a zero-landfill plant, helping you respect the earth while exploring it.

With this much cargo room, the Forester is great at handling big hauls. In fact, the large rear opening delivers up to 74.7 feet of cubic space with the rear seats down.
Passengers and cargo both get plenty of breathing room in the 2016 Forester. There’s lots of space for all aboard and plenty of cargo room for everything else.
Sharp and clear, the available electroluminescent gauges not only feature a sporty look, but are also easy to read, giving you information quickly.
It’s under the most challenging circumstances that you find the true value of what you drive.

And with the available EyeSight® Driver Assist Technology and seven standard airbags, this Forester is engineered to be at its best in a worst-case scenario.
To help keep occupants safe, we included seven standard airbags, including a driver’s knee airbag for extra protection in the event of a crash.
