2017 Subaru Forester Gets Technology and Comfort Upgrades

Subaru has announced added technology and revised interior styling are coming to the 2017 Forester.

Safety Technology

An update to Subaru’s EyeSight Driver Assist Technology will give the Forester’s cameras a wider, longer field of vision as well as add Lane Keep Assist safety technology.

All 2017 Forester Limited and Touring models will include Blind Spot Detection and Rear Cross Traffic Alert while Premium models equipped with EyeSight will also get Blind Spot Detection and Rear Cross Traffic Alert.

Select Limited and Touring models equipped with EyeSight will also have available High Beam Assist, Steering Responsive Headlights

All models equipped with EyeSight will have Reverse Automatic Braking for MY 2017.

Interior Design

Across all trim levels, the ’17 Forester gets thicker door glass, underfloor insulation and an acoustic windshield, restructured door seals aiming to reduce wind noise.

A revised list of appointments for the Forester Touring includes available all-new Saddle Brown perforated leather-trimmed upholstery option with contrast stitching. The leather is carried over to the door panels, center console storage box lid and additional interior details. The Touring edition also gets an updated steering wheel design with intuitive audio, Bluetooth and cruise control switches. A heated steering wheel comes standard in select Touring models as is Keyless Access with Push-Button Start.

Additional convenience features such as two-position memory seats, auto up/down on both driver and front passenger windows, and automatic climate control are now standard across multiple trims, and a power liftgate is now offered on the 2.5i Premium model.

The 2017 Forester will begin arriving at retailers in early July.
