All are supported by enhanced direct injection, a four-cylinder engine equipped with Auto Stop / Start and paired with the standard Lineartronic CVT (continuously variable transmission).

Subaru Forester is a compact crossover SUV manufactured since 1997. Forester various platform with Impreza. Currently, Subaru Forester has entered the fourth generation which was produced starting in 2014. Subaru Forester uses the F4 layout, namely the design of the engine in front and driven all-wheel drive so that it has better control capabilities in various road conditions.

The top-of-line, Touring variant, comes with the debut of the exclusive segment-focused DriverFocus security technology that offers another layer of safety and comfort for the driver. This system can remind drivers of fatigue or interference while on the road and automatically adjust many driver settings at start-up.
With DriverFocus, Subaru takes on one of the biggest problems in the automotive industry; disturbed driving. Every day in the United States, more than 1,000 people are injured in accidents because the driver is disturbed or unfocused.
As a safe industry leader, Subaru has developed DriverFocus, a sophisticated system to help overcome driving disruptions for new and experienced drivers. DriverFocus is a driver monitoring system that uses facial recognition software to identify signs of driver fatigue or driver interference.
Subaru is by all accounts assuming that most customers in this fragment are more inspired by what’s inside the cabin than what’s in the engine. With that in mind, the carmaker raises the situated-legroom by 1.4 inches contrasted with the past model.
The rear seat is also easy to get into. There is generous legroom, though headroom is less than what the front passengers enjoy. The split seats fold nearly flat, leaving a slightly inclined surface for cargo. Opening the power liftgate exposes a wide, square-shaped space that can swallow a fair amount of bulky warehouse-store items.
The cabin of our Forester Touring is visually attractive, with soft surfaces all around, nice textures, and contrasting stitches conveying an upscale feel to this top trim level. As is often true for Subaru, the controls are simple to reach and use. The latest infotainment system is intuitive and responds quickly, and it has knobs for volume and tuning.
The back entryway opening is more extensive, for better entrance and departure, and the freight opening is 5.3 inches more extensive, making it less demanding to transport enormous burdens. The seats have been overhauled to all the more equally appropriate weight. The inside materials aren’t exactly as extravagant as those in the vehicle that is in a similar class, however, the lodge feels extensive, great, and appropriate to lengthy drives.
