2022 Subaru Forester Trims & Specs

The 2022 Subaru Forester is available in six different trims, each adding progressively more features. The exceptions are the Sport model, which gets bespoke styling accents and paddle shifters that emulate the feel of a seven-speed shiftable automatic transmission, and the Wilderness, which is an off-road-focused trim with a higher ground clearance and some bespoke off-roading equipment. All trims come with a 2.5-liter naturally aspirated boxer four-cylinder engine that produces 182 hp and sends power to all four wheels via a CVT automatic. All models also feature the Subaru EyeSight suite of advanced driver aids that include adaptive cruise control. All models are also equipped with adaptive LED headlights. Specs begin with 17-inch steel wheels on the base model with 17- and 18-inch alloy wheels available. You also get a 6.5-inch touchscreen infotainment display as standard, but elsewhere in the range, an eight-inch screen is available and navigation can be equipped too. Sound systems vary too, with a four-speaker setup as standard and a six-speaker system available higher up. The top trim gets a nine-speaker Harman Kardon sound system.

πŸš—What 2022 Subaru Forester Model Should I Buy?

Each of the Subaru Forester trims has the same powertrain and capabilities, so the choice will come down to what features you like. Since you already have Apple CarPlay and Android Auto as standard, navigation isn't all that necessary. However, we do think the bigger infotainment screen is a help when driving. As a result, we recommend going for the Sport trim with its optional package that adds a better sound system, the bigger screen, and a power tailgate. This gives you a good mix of features along with a reasonable price of under $33,000, including the destination charge. However, the new Wilderness is an interesting alternative, not least for its significantly improved off-road ability, but also because it's the only trim to offer high-capacity roof rails, a 3,000-pound towing capacity, and a front-view monitor, at the expense of worse fuel consumption.
