A hue that's you

The colour you choose for your Subaru makes a bold statement about who you are. So we've made sure you've got lots of ways to express yourself - with a wide range of colours to make your Subaru more... you

2019 Forester Driver Monitoring System with Facial Recognition

The Forester is the first Subaru that can recognise its owner (and four other drivers). You have the ability to program it to adjust to your personal cabin preferences such as seat, door mirror, air-conditioning and favourite settings just by hopping behind the wheel.

2019 Forester. Built for families

The 2019 Forester has been redesigned inside and out. And all with families in mind. It means, more room in the back and in the boot, greater driver visibility, and a number of features that make it great for loading the whole family in or out.

2019 Forester Driver Monitoring System with Facial Recognition

Like all Subarus, the Forester earned a 5-star ANCAP safety rating. With updates to our clever crash-avoidance technology EyeSight®, along with a host of vision assist features, the new Forester has an extra pair of eyes on the road ahead. And with the Driver Monitoring System when you’re out and about, the Forester can detect if you’ve taken your eyes off the road and monitor if you’re getting drowsy.

Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive, an improved low-slung Boxer engine, and updated X-Mode means you don’t just get an SUV body, but all the performance benefits of a Subaru utility vehicle.

Reviews

Driven.co.nz logo

"What makes the Forester stand out is the advance technology and safety features in the SUV... But it’s the driver monitoring system that is the next step in safety. It uses facial recognition software in dash-mounted cameras that monitor the driver’s eyes and head for drowsiness or distraction, such as turning around to tell off the kids."

"In rougher stuff it really impresses with an unruffled ride over rocks and ridges. It's still essentially a road car underneath, but with AWD, X-Mode and impressive ground clearance (minimum 220mm), it'll go much further into the rough than most owners would be willing to take it...Forester is the real deal. And a real contender on price and equipment."

Rural News logo

"It sports a larger presence, better looks and even more technology than we have become used to with Subaru... Add in a host of practical solutions like front, rear and side-view cameras, reverse automatic braking and reverse interlocking door mirrors that tilt down when reverse is selected, and the Forester is really the business."
