Subaru Forester History

The first Subaru Forester came out back in 1997, more than 24 years ago, and in that time, it has taken the world by storm. Although it used the Impreza's platform, it was nothing like the original compact car and was actually one of the very first crossover SUVs of our time. It was originally marketed as being as capable and rugged as an SUV but as comfortable and convenient as an everyday car or sedan.

By 2009, the Forester had abandoned the iconic station wagon image and moved into a more stylish and sophisticated exterior that better matched its SUV competitors. However, Subaru kept to its reputation of safety and performance over bells and whistles by focusing on features that really mattered rather than extra fluff. For example, this Forester's cabin was very simple and straightforward, making it user-friendly and intuitive for all.

By 2014, the Forester added even more performance features that drivers found appealing. One of these features was the all-terrain system and hill descent control, which more easily kept drivers in control of the vehicle at all times. More and more, this Subaru is becoming not only a quality on-road vehicle but also a top-notch off-road vehicle. While this generation of Foresters only offered the EyeSight Driver Assist Technology as an optional add-on, by 2019, the EyeSight Driver Assist Technology had become standard in all Subaru vehicles, regardless of the trim level.

Nowadays, every Subaru Forester comes with Subaru's latest and greatest safety features. Subaru has made it a priority to improve the safety of everybody on the road, not just Subaru drivers. In fact, Subaru's EyeSight Driver Assist Technology has actually reduced rear-end collisions with injuries by no less than 85% over the last few years. You know you're in good hands when you're in a Subaru.

In addition to Subaru's premium safety systems, you can also expect modern-day Foresters to come with a continuously variable automatic transmission which makes driving these SUVs even more fuel-efficient. Nowadays, the Subaru Forester is recognized as being an SUV that is capable of many off-roading adventures as well as comfortable on-road expeditions. With the amount of cargo space, fuel efficiency, and premium safety features, this is absolutely a vehicle that you can feel comfortable sharing with the entire family. From the elderly grandparent to the child in a car seat, there's room for everybody to enjoy a pleasant and agreeable road trip with the Subaru Forester.
