Always Looking Out for Your Safety
Standard Eyesight® Driver Assist Technology
Standard on every 2022 Forester, EyeSight monitors traffic movement, optimizes cruise control, and warns you when you’re swaying outside your lane. The Automatic Pre-Collision Braking feature can apply full braking force and bring you to a complete stop in emergency situations. Automatic Emergency Steering, an all-new feature available for 2022, can help you avoid a collision by providing automatic steering and pre-collision braking support if it determines there’s enough space to intervene. Advanced Adaptive Cruise Control with Lane Centering can take some of the stress out of driving by helping with steering, braking, and throttle control – both in daily traffic and on long road trips.

Engineering You Can Count On
Built for the Long Road Ahead
The Forester will be with you on all the journeys ahead — 97% of Forester vehicles sold in the last 10 years are still on the road today – more than Honda CR-V, Toyota RAV4, Jeep Cherokee, or Hyundai Santa Fe. Its long-lasting quality is one reason why the Forester has the highest residual value in its class for six years running, according to ALG, and has the best resale value and the lowest 5-year cost to own in its class, for two years running, according to Kelley Blue Book .
Power Panoramic Moonroof
Giving the interior an even more expansive atmosphere, an available power sliding panoramic moonroof lets you feel the breeze, brighten the day, and check out the stars.
