Brilliant Safety Features
The Subaru Forester has always excelled in terms of safety, but Subaru’s innovative and proprietary EyeSight cruise control system boosted it to the top. It can detect road hazards from up to 80 feet ahead. It can also figure out the Forester’s relative speed and distance between cars automatically. You’re able to setup cruise control to your desired speed, and the Forester will automatically brake for slower traffic. The EyeSight system paved the way for the Forester to garner the IIHS Top Safety Pick+ distinction, only one of a handful in the whole world.
