The Car Guide rating 81%(view ratings)
The Subaru Forester is a compact SUV that faces stiff competition. But just like every other Subaru except the BRZ sports coupe, it stands out with standard all-wheel drive. Under the hood, you will find a naturally aspirated 2.5-litre four-cylinder engine that produces 182 horsepower. There’s no turbo option, and the continuously variable transmission underscores Subaru’s focus on fuel economy. The 2021 Forester lineup includes six trim levels—base, Convenience, Touring, Sport, Limited and Premier.
