2021 Subaru Forester Trims & Specs

The 2021 Subaru Forester is available in five different trims, each adding progressively more features. The exception is the Sport model, which gets bespoke styling accents and paddle shifters that emulate the feel of a seven-speed shiftable automatic transmission. 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 for 2021. 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.
