Just a year after the launch of its fifth generation, the Forester is making a few changes for 2020. The biggest news is that the EyeSight advanced safety system is now standard equipment on all trim levels. A new device provides audible and visual reminders to check the rear-seat area before leaving the vehicle, while the Convenience variant gets reverse automatic braking. The 182-horsepower engine and Subaru’s symmetrical all-wheel drive make a winning combo.
