Subaru Forester

The Subaru Forester is easily among the best small SUVs on the market, receiving constant praise from experts and owners alike for its excellent value, top safety scores, incredibly spacious interior, and thrifty efficiency. As a Subaru, you can also count on it to excel in all weather conditions or even take you off-road when you need to get to a remote destination. To make it even better, this model gives you a long list of features for a reasonable Subaru Forester price, starting at just $25,995.

Making a Great Impression

Whenever you drive someone new in your Subaru Forester, this vehicle will make an excellent first impression. The exterior has a handsome shape that shows off its capabilities and the roof rack lets everyone know you can carry plenty of cargo with you. That said, the Forester focuses on practicality instead of trying to mimic the appearance of a sports car. Even so, you will find character lines in the hood and a chiseled front end with an aggressive air dam making an appearance on turbocharged models.

Inside, you and your passengers are treated to soft-touch materials and stylish matte materials. When you get moving, the Forester will remain quiet, even if you are on bumpy roads or driving at highway speeds, thanks to extra sound insulation, thicker door glass, an acoustic windshield, and more.

You Choose the Power

Although the Subaru Forester features always include all-wheel drive, you do get to choose the engine that you prefer. Most use a 2.5-liter flat-4 that generates 170 horsepower, or you can choose the Forester 2.0XT models with their 2-liter turbocharged flat-4 and 250 horsepower. Thanks to its small size and efficient powertrains, the Forester can take you as far as you want without wasting fuel. The base engine gets 32 mpg on the highway and 28 combined while the turbocharged engine still gets 25 mpg combined. Either engine lets you tow as much as 1,500 pounds, making the Forester useful as well as fun.

When driving the Forester, the SI-Drive system lets you choose from three modes, including Sport Sharp, Sport, and Intelligent. Each of these will tweak the response of the powertrain and accelerator to your inputs. The Sport Sharp mode makes the Forester 2.0XT’s CVT simulate an 8-speed automatic and lets you make full use of the steering paddles. Of course, the Forester goes off-road with ease between its Subaru heritage, all-wheel drive, and 8.7 inches’ worth of ground clearance. There is even an X-Mode, which will adjust power right to left when at low speeds to make off-roading even better.

Keeping Your Family Safe

No matter where you take your Forester, you will have one less thing to worry about since the Subaru Forester price gives you an incredibly safe vehicle. This is actually an IIHS Top Safety Pick+, a high honor that few vehicles manage to achieve. You get Subaru Forester features like active front head restraints, a driver’s knee airbag, and a rearview camera as standard and can enjoy advanced features, such as reverse automatic braking and EyeSight.

Amazing Features at a Reasonable Price

Safety features aren’t the only area that the Subaru Forester excels. Every model gives you Bluetooth, Starlink multimedia, a 6.2-inch screen, and steering wheel controls. You can also enjoy features like 10-way power adjustment for the driver, perforated leather trim, a power liftgate, a one-touch folding rear seatback, HID headlights, and blind spot monitoring. Of course, all Foresters get 60/40 seatbacks to add to this vehicle’s versatility.Surprisingly, they can recline and have a fold-down armrest in the center, helping everyone get comfortable. In addition to being packed with features, this SUV gives you the space you need for the low Subaru Forester price. After all, it has 34.4 to 74.7 cubic feet depending on whether the rear seats are folded.
