The latest Subaru Forester redesign amps up the advanced safety features the brand is already so well known for

2025 Forester has a great new look and an even greater commitment to driver and passenger safety

The Subaru Forester has, historically, been one of the strongest and safest compact SUVs on the market. To many, it’s no surprise at all that 3 of the 10 safe family SUVs, according to Consumer Reports are Subaru vehicles.

Not only is the all-new 2025 Forester more versatile, refined and stylish, it takes safety to a whole new level.

This is the sixth generation of the ever-popular vehicle and it has been completely redesigned from the ground up. Among the things you’re sure to notice: a more muscular exterior design, a more refined passenger cabin and a quieter, more comfortable ride.

The company anticipates that the Forester will retain its IIHS Top Safety Pick status for 2025.


So what can you expect from the safest Forester ever?

The Subaru EyeSight® Driver-Assist system has been fitted with a new, third, wide-angle mono camera that detects potential hazards much more quickly and reliably. It was added for better pedestrian and cyclist pre-collision protection—and comes standard on all versions of the 2025 Forester.

The new Emergency Stop Assist feature can bring your vehicle to a complete stop if the driver is unresponsive or asleep while behind the wheel. There is also exceptional visibility in all directions. With the Premier trim level, you’ll even get a new 360-degree Surround View Monitor for an even better perspective.

This popular line of vehicles offers:

  • Next generation active-safety systems
  • Superior visibility, all around
  • Standard rear view camera
  • Award-winning EyeSight® Driver-Assist Technology
  • Award-winning Subaru DriverFocus® Distraction Mitigation System
  • Side and rear vehicle detection system
  • Reverse automatic braking
  • Blind spot detection
  • Rear cross traffic alert
  • High beam assist
  • Steering responsive headlights
  • High-performance braking system
  • Vehicle dynamics control
  • The safety systems that are available as part of Subaru’s STARLINK® Connected Services

The Subaru Global Platform

Another standout feature is the Subaru Global Platform. All Subaru vehicles have a proprietary, advanced, ring-shaped reinforcement frame that is designed to absorb more impact energy and divert more energy away from the passenger compartment.

The latest Forester features an ultra-strong frame and a vast range of advanced safety systems. If you’re unable to avoid a collision, all of these systems work together to create a suit of armour that protects all occupants, minimizing the chance of injury.

The all-new Forester also comes equipped with fast-acting supplemental restraints and airbags, redesigned seats and seatbelts, and a drop-down, breakaway engine and transmission.

No matter which Forester you choose, you can rest assured you’ll have a family-friendly, ultra-safe, road-trip worthy SUV. Whether you’re a new parent who is extra cautious with their precious cargo, you have young drivers in the family or you take seniors to their appointments, you’ll have peace of mind knowing that your vehicle has all of the top-of-the-line safety features needed to keep everyone safe on the road.

The 2025 Forester has 5 different trim packages available: Convenience, Touring, Sport, Limited and Premier.
