Trims on the Subaru Forester

There are five trims to choose from on the Subaru Forester, including the base, Limited, Premium, Sport, and Touring. The Subaru Forester has something for every lifestyle in Staten Island, and with the chance to choose between five different trim levels, you'll be sure to find something that suits you.

No matter which trim you choose, each Forester comes equipped with a 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine. The 2.5-liter BOXER engine produces 182 horsepower and 176 pound-feet of torque. Each Subaru Forester also comes equipped with a continuously variable automatic transmission. And, like all Subaru models

The Base Subaru Forester

Despite the base Subaru Forester being the least expensive of the trim levels, there are still a plethora of features to take advantage of. It seats five and comes with some of the features you'd expect to have in a Subaru like a rearview camera, push-button start, and an EyeSight driver assistance suite. EyeSight Driver Assist technology works with a handful of features to help prevent accidents. Inside the suite, you'll find features like lane departure warning, lane-keeping assist, and automatic emergency braking.

Premium Trim

The Premium trim is the next step up from the base model Forester that features a set of upgrades that our NYC drivers enjoy. While driving around the city you can take in the skyscrapers with the panoramic sunroof. You'll also gain raised roof rails, a power-adjustable driver's seat, and hill descent control.

If you can see yourself going outside of the city life in Brooklyn, you will be pleased to know that the All-Weather package is also standard. The heated seats will keep you warm on cold winter mornings in Jersey City. You'll also be thankful to have heated side mirrors and windshield wiper de-icer. And, if that's not enough, you can get 4G LTE WiFi when you're out of service, and Subaru's X-Mode will keep a proper grip on all road conditions. Another aspect that our Avenal drivers appreciate is the additional speakers available on the Premium trim as well.


Moving up even further along the Subaru Forester trim line is the Sport. It adds a series of features to make driving around Woodbridge even more enjoyable. The LED foglights and orange interior and exterior accents are sure to stand out on any roadway, and the additional driving mode gives you the necessary confidence to take on new streets.

If you're looking for more tech in your vehicle, you can upgrade an optional package that gives you an upgraded eight-inch touchscreen, a navigation system, blind-spot detection, rear cross-traffic alert and reverse automatic braking.

Touring and Limited

Some of our Brooklyn drivers want a muted style on their Forester but would like the added features that the Sport trim provides. That's where the Limited comes in with its adaptive headlights, dual-zone automatic climate control, and leather upholstery. Also, now standard on the Limited trim is the eight-inch touchscreen, as do blind-spot monitoring and a power liftgate.

Finally, at the top of the trim line is the Touring model that has just about all the features combined into one vehicle. It addition to all of the other features, the Subaru Forester also comes with a heated steering wheel, heated rear seats, a power-adjustable passenger seat, premium leather upholstery, and a driver distraction monitoring system (DriverFocus).
