The 2016 Subaru Forester is yet to hit Subaru dealerships in New Orleans and the surrounding areas, but it’s already causing quite a hype. Since 1997, this line of vehicles has been known to enhance on its features from previous years, and this tradition of continuing improvement hasn’t let up at all. Aside from the obvious tweaks on the design and performance, a few big safety upgrades are expected for the upcoming new Forester.
The EyeSight is a new driver assist technology developed by the brilliant engineers at Subaru. It is a crash prevention mechanism that serves as a cruise control system to provide more safety for drivers. The all-new EyeSight on the 2016 Forester comes with Steering-Responsive Fog Lights, which are pre-aimed fog lights that help light the way for higher visibility.
