The Forester scored highly in all four areas (Adult Occupant Protection, Child Occupant Protection, Pedestrian Protection and Safety Assist) thanks to further advances in Subaru’s unique ring-shaped reinforcement frame body and the extensive use of high-tensile steel.



The Forester was awarded the maximum score for the protection of all body regions in the side barrier test, while its front bumpers scored the highest mark for protection of pedestrian legs. A 91 per cent rating for Child Occupant Protection places it among the safest on the road. Earlier in the year, the Subaru XV also performed particularly strongly in this area, ensuring Subaru now has one of the safest model ranges available in the UK.



Subaru’s unique permanent Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive system remains at the heart of the vehicle; paired with Vehicle Dynamics Control, the Japanese brand’s electronic stability control system, this contributed to a high Safety Assist score from Euro NCAP.



The fourth-generation Forester builds upon the outgoing model’s credentials as a user-friendly compact SUV, with improved performance, safety and efficiency and a larger, more practical cabin. A low centre of gravity and improved body rigidity – the result of Subaru’s hallmark Boxer engines and the use of high-tensile steels respectively – contribute to improved refinement and fun-to-drive characteristics.
