Active safety features on the 2023 Subaru Forester can protect loved ones by preventing accidents and reducing accident severity.

Other safety technologies seem simpler but should still be considered. Standard High Beam Assist automatically switches high beam headlights off when oncoming traffic is approaching and turns them back on when there aren't any vehicles ahead. Optional side mirror turn signals alert others of your intention to turn or switch lanes allowing them to react accordingly, which can prevent accidents caused by not seeing a vehicle in the blind spot.
