Despite as hard as we may try accidents happen and like many New London, CT we have older family members still driving that we worry about. We want to make sure that they have a safe and reliable vehicle that will get them where they need to be and there is no better option than a new Subaru Forester or Outback.

What makes a Subaru Forester or Outback the safest option for the older members of your family? The list of reasons to love and choose a Subaru is very long but it all starts with Subaru Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive. The standard Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive gives the Outback and Forester a commanding grip on the road regardless of conditions, especially snow covered roads. The Outback comes standard with X-Mode with Hill Descent Control for additional stability on extra slippery surfaces. The Forester is equipped with X-Mode on every trim level except the base.

Advanced safety features are another reason why the Forester and Outback are two excellent options for older drivers.

The Outback and Forester also are available with an array of additional safety features that include LED Steering Responsive Headlights, STARLINK Safety & Security with Automatic Collision Notification, and Reverse Automatic Braking. The 2019 Forester is available with Subaru DriverFocus Distracted Driver Mitigation system that alerts the driver to bring their attention back to the road ahead.
