2022 Subaru Forester
The Subaru Forester has over two decades of success behind it, consistently posting impressive sales figures in the hugely competitive compact crossover market. But Subaru isn't a company known for standing still, and for 2022 the Forester has been given a significant makeover to create an even more impressive vehicle that builds on its predecessors' success. The latest 2022 Subaru Forester is now available for test drive from our dealership, and here are just some of the excellent features it offers.
The Forester has long been a handsome SUV, but for 2022 Subaru has made it chunkier and more imposing, reflecting the genuine off-road abilities that the model possesses. The large front grille recalls the front profile of a pickup rather than a regular SUV, while swept-back lines add a streamlined feel. All in all, the new Forester look combines rugged assurance with driveway-friendly modernity to create an even better-looking model than before.
Power Under the Hood
Each model in the 2022 Forester lineup is motivated by a 2.5L flat-four engine creating a healthy output of 182 horsepower and 176lb-ft, plenty enough to drive a compact crossover with confident ease. The power is passed to all-wheel drive as standard, using a continuously variable transmission (CVT) to deliver smooth responsiveness at all speeds.
Cargo and Towing Capacities
The Forester may be a compact SUV, but it boasts plentiful cargo and towing capacities. The interior can hold up to 2,155L of stuff with the rear seats folded down, while attaching a trailer allows up to 680kg of towing capacity, an unusually high figure for an SUV of this size.
Go Off-Road with the Wilderness
Although the standard Forester has the power to tackle tough terrains, choosing the Wilderness trim adds several dedicated off-road features to the basic package. Highlights include a raised ground clearance, independent four-wheel suspension, all-terrain tires, and increased approach and departure angles.
Infotainment and Technology
The 2022 Forester is equipped with a rich set of infotainment technology, starting with a touchscreen display of up to 8" in size. Every system runs the high-end Subaru StarLink software to guarantee a user-friendly experience, and standard features include Apple CarPlay and Android Auto for straightforward smartphone integration. A Wi-Fi hotspot facility is standard on every trim except the entry level, while optional upgrades include in-built navigation and extra USB ports beyond the two supplied as standard.
Driver Assistance and Active Safety Systems
The 2022 Forester fully upholds the Subaru reputation for excellent safety, with full marks in crash tests by the NHTSA and a generous amount of active assist systems. Key standard and optional features include:
- Forward collision warnings with pedestrian detection and automated emergency braking.
- Reverse emergency braking.
- Lane departure warnings with keep assist.
- Adaptive cruise control.
- Adaptive LED headlights with automatic high beams.
