The Subaru Forester — a perennial favourite for those who desire a supremely versatile, wildly accommodating, yet nimble and agile compact AWD SUV — is reengineered from the ground up and better than ever. The 2021 Subaru Forester features the renown SUBARU BOXER® engine and Lineartronic® CVT transmission that combine to create more power and increased efficiency. The exterior and interior both serve to bring the Forester up to new levels in terms of design, comfort and convenience. Built on the Subaru Global Platform, the Forester is longer, wider, more spacious, quieter, safer, more comfortable and better handling than ever before. Yet, the Forester still retains its essential “Forester-ness,” courtesy of standard adventure-ready systems, such as Subaru Symmetrical Full-Time AWD, X-MODE®, SI-DRIVE and Hill Descent Control. So, no matter which direction your life may take, the Forester is ready to roll.
Bigger, bolder, more capable, still compact
Athletic and edgy, the exterior design of the 2020 Forester foreshadows the fantastic all-road/all-weather performance that lies underneath. The carved front fascia sets the stage for hawkeye-shaped LED headlights and available angular LED accent lights. The body is more muscular, yet more aerodynamically efficient at the same time. The stylish rear fascia and distinctive LED taillight assembly emphasize the high ground clearance. The wider stance speaks to a more planted and more dynamic driving experience. And the generous glass area provides a commanding view of the road ahead. All things considered, the 2020 Subaru Forester is a bold statement that’s well-suited to an even more capable compact SUV.
More space, higher quality, more comfort
There’s been no stone unturned in the design and engineering of the interior of the Subaru Forester. The Subaru Global Platform and ring-shaped reinforcement frame structure combine to reduce noise and create more space for all passengers. Improved aerodynamics, added damping material and more sound-insulating glass combine to create a quieter and peaceful passenger cabin. The seats are very supportive, the surfaces feature abundant soft-touch materials and there is a range of very engaging infotainment systems available.
More Forester, more confidence
The last-generation Subaru Forester was designated an IIHS Top Safety Pick1 for incorporating the latest thinking in active and passive safety systems. This current generation Subaru Forester continues to push the edge of the safety envelop even further with the ultra-strong Subaru Global Platform and other active safety systems, including the enhanced X-MODE® and Subaru DriverFocusTM. These changes serve to increase the strength and inherent safety of the Forester and take driver confidence to new heights.
Engineered for excellence
The Subaru Forester has always been an engaging SUV and the 2020 model is no exception. The latest Forester is built on the Subaru Global Platform, stiffer and more rigid than the previous platform, and this allows for even more precise tuning of the suspension system. The SUBARU BOXER® engine — more powerful and efficient than before — is linked to the latest version of the Lineartronic® CVT. The Forester also features the redoubtable Subaru Symmetrical Full-Time AWD system and, on certain models, a refined version of X-MODE®. The result: An honest-to-goodness SUV with incredible stability, impressive efficiency and dynamic all-road/all-weather performance.
