Drivers in Bristol, Somerset, and Fall River can learn more about the 2020 Subaru Forester with our in-depth vehicle review.

Performance and Capability

The Forester comes with a 2.5-liter SUBARU BOXER® 4-cylinder engine that powers all four wheels through a Continuously Variable Transmission. It produces 182 horsepower and 176 pound-feet of torque, giving it ample passing and merging power. Its performance can also be enhanced with the available X-MODE® traction system and paddle shifters that simulate seven gears.

On the road, the Forester displays remarkable road manners, smooth handling, and maneuverability. It's collected and poised thanks to the additional brake-based Active Torque Vectoring that improves its agility. On the trails, the Forester showcases its true prowess in tackling rugged environments and inclines.

New Forester Interior Space and Comfort

The new Subaru Forester offers seating for five people in two rows of seats. The seats are spacious and comfortable throughout, and even back-seat passengers enjoy an abundance of head- and legroom. Cloth upholstery is standard, but features such as reclining seats, perforated leather upholstery, and heated seats are available to enhance the comfort. Although the cabin is focused on utility, it still features plenty of high-quality, soft-touch materials.

In the cargo bay, the Forester has 35.4 cubic feet of cargo space when the seats are upright, expanding to 76.1 cubic feet when the seats are folded flat. The 60/40-split flat-folding rear seatback offers easy cargo configuration, and a one-touch folding rear seat is optional. The low lift-over height makes cargo loading and unloading quick and convenient, especially with the height-adjustable Power Rear Gate option.

2020 Subaru Forester Technology

Although designed for utility and practicality, the Forester doesn't skimp on the creature comforts. It comes with many technology features, including an intuitive SUBARU STARLINK® Multimedia system with a 6.5-inch touchscreen and four speakers. It also has Android Auto™ and Apple CarPlay® smartphone integration, HD Radio®, and satellite radio. Available upgrades include a larger 8-inch touchscreen, Bluetooth® connectivity for hands-free calls and text messages, a premium Harman Kardon® premium audio system with nine speakers, navigation, and a built-in Wi-Fi hotspot for reliable connectivity.

For safety, the Forester includes a Rear-Vision Camera and a Rear-seat Reminder that alerts the driver to a child or pet left in the back seat. The EyeSight® Driver Assist Technology is also standard and includes a suite of safety features. These include Pre-Collision Braking System and Pre-Collision Throttle Management that work together to mitigate the effects of a crash, Lane Departure and Sway Warning with Lane Keep Assist, and more. You can also add on Blind-Spot Detection with Lane Change Assist and Rear Cross-Traffic Alert and Reverse Automatic Braking.
