Subaru Forester Is First Mainstream Model To Offer Facial Recognition Technology

The all-new Subaru Forester knows who you are. As the first mainstream model to employ facial recognition technology, the Forester cannot only detect driver fatigue but can distinguish between drivers and automatically adjust the seat and mirrors. And this device won’t break the bank. Other models like the Lexus LC that offer this device start at over $70,000 whereas the Forester has priced it at under $40,000.
Recently revealed at the New York International Auto Show, this is the brand new Forester, even if it looks a lot like the old one. Not wanting to confuse or disappoint the market with one of its biggest selling models, the Japanese carmaker has opted for what it calls a “keep-concept” idea. That’s right, the firm wants to keep the Forester’s styling and concept pretty much as it has been for the past decade.
