Subaru Forester e-Boxer

Subaru UK is pleased to announce that the all-new Subaru Forester e-BOXER has won a hat trick of prestigious awards to start 2020, testament to its unwavering commitment to building cars that are incredibly safe, extremely capable and unfalteringly reliable.





The Driver Monitoring System, fitted as standard on all Forester e-BOXER models, is a brand-new technology for Subaru. It uses facial recognition technology to detect if the driver’s gaze has shifted away from the road and alerts vehicle occupants if this occurs.


According to What Car? 72% of drivers admit to being distracted when behind the wheel, making driver monitoring systems an increasingly important piece of in-car technology. What Car? praised Subaru’s Driver Monitoring System, calling it “the most advanced of its kind”. In testing it proved to be more accurate at identifying when concentration was lost compared to other manufacturer systems.

Beating off strong competition, Forester impressed the judging panel at 4x4 Magazine across the board thanks to its wide range of safety technologies, on-road drivability and genuine off-road skills.


Alan Kidd, Editor of 4x4 Magazine, said: “"Subaru’s new Global Platform is the gift that keeps on giving. It means the all-new Forester has a roomier cabin than ever, as well as being almost unbelievably entertaining to drive – and one of the safest family vehicles in the world.
