All-Terrain Power

The 2022 Forester comes with a 2.5L 4-cylinder engine that produces 182 horsepower, paired with a Lineartronic® CVT (Continuously Variable Transmission). This powertrain offers the power for merging and passing. It also delivers a composed, balanced ride.

The Forester can tow up to 1,360 kilograms when properly equipped. To help carry that cargo and deal with inclement weather, Subaru Symmetrical Full-Time AWD (all-wheel drive) comes standard. Several other features enhance its capability, including its 220-millimetre ground clearance; X-MODE®, a Traction Control System for different trail conditions; and Hill Descent Control to prevent rollback on steep inclines.

Staying Confident and Connected

The Forester includes vehicle-to-vehicle and vehicle-to-pedestrian crash prevention systems as standard features, making it one of the safest vehicles on the road. All models come with a rear-seat reminder, which lets you know if you have a pet or child in the back seat. Subaru EyeSight® is also included. This system helps prevent accidents with driver-assist technologies, such as:

  • Pre-Collision Braking System
  • Pre-Collision Throttle Management
  • Lane Keep Assist and Sway Warning
  • Adaptive Cruise Control with Vehicle Hold

A DriverFocus® Distraction Mitigation System is optional, which alerts you if you exhibit signs of fatigue, so you can take a break. Blind Spot Detection, Lane Change Assist, and Rear Cross Traffic Alert are also available to let you know if other vehicles or pedestrians are in your blind spots when you're reversing or changing lanes.

Every Forester model comes with the intuitive STARLINK® infotainment system with a responsive touchscreen. The base model includes a 6.5-inch touchscreen with Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto™ smartphone capability, which syncs with your phone for on-the-go music and entertainment. Bluetooth® connectivity, HD Radio™, and SiriusXM® Satellite Radio are included, too.

You can upgrade to a larger 8-inch touchscreen that includes a navigation system and a built-in Wi-Fi hotspot. Plus, to enjoy superior sound quality, a 9-speaker Harman Kardon® premium sound system is also available.
