2020 Subaru Forester Trims & Specs

The 2020 Forester lineup consists of five varying models, the base Forester, Premium, Sport, Limited, and Touring. All are powered by a 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine that’s mated to a CVT automatic and all-wheel drivetrain. Subaru really spoils buyers when it comes to features, with keyless entry, a six-way manually-adjustable driver’s seat, single-zone automatic climate control, a rearview camera, and Subaru’s EyeSight suite of driver-assists on the base model.

Things get even better in the Premium with a leather-wrapped steering wheel, ten-way power-adjustable driver’s seat, heated front seats, and reclining rear seatbacks coming in. In the Sport, there’s keyless access with push-button start, a 6.3-inch color multifunction display, and with steering-wheel-mounted paddle shifters. Upgrades such as dual-zone automatic climate control, a power rear liftgate, and high-beam assist come in at the Limited along with blind spot detection with lane change assist and rear cross-traffic alert. At the top-of-the-line, the Touring gets a heated steering wheel, ten-way power-adjustable front passenger seat, heated rear outboard seats, a DriverFocus distraction mitigation system, and reverse automatic braking.
