The 2020 Subaru Forester: Bold, Adventurous and Capable

Some say you should not change a winning formula. In the Forester, Subaru found just that, a combination of power, comfort, reliability, and good looks. So, for 2020, the Forester does not change much in its already successful formula. The 2020 Subaru Forester is a practical, capable, and well-equipped crossover SUV. It is spacious, roomy, and more than competent off-road. The Forester also has high ground clearance, making it ideal for rough terrain. The Forester comes in several trims: the base model, Premium, Sport, Limited, and the top of the line Touring.


All trim levels are, however, powered by the same engine, the 2.5-liter Subaru BOXER four-cylinder engine that produces 182 horsepower. A CVT is also standard, as is Subaru's Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive. The Subaru Forester has adequate power and response to tackle most terrains. The steering wheel is very responsive, and the braking is stronger than most SUVs in its class. The Subaru stands at 8.7-inches above the ground. All Subaru Foresters except the base model get the X-MODE feature, which has Hill Descent Control. The X-MODE feature enhances the symmetrical all-wheel-drive system to improve traction on otherwise tough terrain such as mud, dirt, and snow.


The interior of the Forester is spacious, comfy, and luxurious. The front seats are quite comfortable, and buyers have the option to equip power-adjustable front seats as well as a lumbar supporting driver's seat. The rear seats have plenty of legroom for passengers. The Forester comes with a standard 6.5-inch infotainment system, which is upgraded to an eight-inch on the Sport, Limited, and Touring trims. Android Auto and Apple CarPlay compatibility come as standard.

High-End Technology

The Forester features a host of driver assistance technology such as automated emergency braking, lane-keeping assist, and adaptive cruise control. The rear-view camera is standard on all models, while the reverse automatic braking is optional on the Sport and Limited trims and standard on the Touring trim.
