2020 Forester Base Starting at $24,495

The Subaru Forester has a dazzling array of features that speak to anyone who loves driving. 

For starters, Subaru's signature Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive makes driving 100% safe and efficient, no matter the terrain.  And the ability to handle all surfaces is further enhanced through the reliable response of the 182-hp 2.5-liter Direct-Injection SUBARU BOXER® Engine.

The Height of Versatility and Efficiency 

Making this vehicle even more versatile is Subaru's Intelligent Drive (SI-DRIVE) Engine Performance Management. This advanced system offers you selectable modes catered towards varying conditions. Such a feature gives your automobile a sporty response combined with efficient fuel consumption, making for high-level performance.

SI-DRIVE also offers two distinct modes - Intelligent Mode and Sport Mode.

Intelligent Mode maximizes fuel efficiency, makes for a smoother ride, and offsets emissions. Whereas Sport Mode makes for a more direct response to driver input. 

Keeping Fuel Consumption in Check

Those responsible for designing the Forester thought it integral to reduce emissions and fuel consumption. As such, they've built this tremendous vehicle with Auto Start-Stop Technology. This allows your combustion engine to start and stop automatically.

Automatic and Manual Transmission Capabilities

Lineartronic® CVT (Continuously Variable Transmission) is another vital feature of the Forester. 

If you're in Automatic Mode, the Lineartronic® CVT instantly adjusts to match acceleration. Meaning your vehicle can maintain momentum without having to shift.

Tight Handling and Secure Towing 

The Forester has a 1,500-pound Towing Capacity. This feature possesses a Trailer Stability Assist, making the towing process safe, seamless, and reliable.

Speaking more to the safety factor of the Forester is the Vehicle Dynamics Control (VDC) with Active Torque Vectoring (ATV). 

VDC is an advanced active safety system that monitors wheel speed, steering wheel position, and other factors through multiple sensors. And while you're carving around even the tightest of corners, Subaru's ATV prevents your wheels from over spinning and drastically improves handling.

Drive Confidently and See Clearly

The Forester's anti-lock braking system (ABS) will boost your confidence while driving in challenging circumstances via the latest active safety technology. The 4 channel/4 Sensor addition monitors each wheel so that you'll experience the most optimal braking force. 

On top of that, the LED headlights will ensure your eyes don't deceive you, even in the darkest conditions. 

An Excess of Space and Comfort 

Owners of the Forest will revel in the flexible cargo carrying capabilities offered by its Rear Seatback and 60/40 Split Fold-Down. 

Enhancing the automobile experience in the Forester is the Retained Accessory Power. This feature allows you to listen to the radio without the key in the ignition. Plus, you'll always feel comfortable in the car with the Auto-Up/Auto-Down Driver and Front Passenger Windows. In fact, you can control the conditions in your Subaru vehicle while keeping your eyes on the road, with the Automatic Climate Control. 

You can also steer with the utmost personal comfort in the Forester with the Tilt and Telescopic Steering Column. The wheel can be set to meet your exact specifications. 

Equipped for the Future

With Color LCD Multi-Function Display, you'll have a hub for a wealth of information, whether it's the time of day or if your car needs maintenance. 

This state-of-the-art technology theme continues with the Steering Wheel Audio and Bluetooth® Controls, so your hands can remain on the wheel. Also, a Security System with Remote Keyless Entry System and Automatic Door Locks are convenient additions that will prevent theft.

And don't forget the ultra-convenient Overhead Console with LED Map Lights and Sunglasses Holder.
