Primary Safety begins at the underlying design stage. Outstanding visibility, optimal driving position, and intuitive controls help keep you safe from the moment you enter your vehicle.
Visibility in all directions
Optimal driving position, window heights, and carefully arranged pillars provide excellent visibility in all directions to reduce blind spots, letting you easily check your surroundings.
With advanced safety technologies, Preventive Safety helps avoid collisions before they happen.
Steering Responsive Headlights (SRH)
These headlights operate interconnectedly with steering input and vehicle speed to aim your lights in the direction your vehicle is turning, helping you see better around corners for safer nighttime..
Thanks to technologies like Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive and SGP, Active Safety allows precise control of your vehicle by fine-tuning the basic elements of driving—driving, turning, braking—so you can enjoy each drive with peace of mind.

Auto Vehicle Hold
When the vehicle is at a complete stop, Auto Vehicle Hold keeps the vehicle in place even when the brake pedal is released, reducing driver fatigue in stop-and-go traffic.
Made possible by the SGP and Symmetrical AWD, the lower centre of gravity design, enhanced suspension system, and rigidity improvements provide a vehicle that responds immediately when evasive...
Passive Safety is designed to keep you safe in the event of a collision, with features such as the cabin-protecting engine layout and SRS* airbags.
Ring-shaped Reinforcement Frame
The Ring-shaped Reinforcement Frame makes better use of high-tensile steel panels and has been structurally redesigned for more efficient energy absorption from impacts in all directions.
The reinforced pillars and frame all work together within the Forester’s SGP design to absorb collision impact from all sides to protect all passengers. In the event of a frontal collision, the engine and...
