And there are some new standard features too.
The Subaru Forester, which competes with the likes of the Honda CR-V is one of the Japanese automaker's most popular models in the US, and despite slowing sales of the rest of Subaru's lineup, the Forester keeps plugging away, undaunted by a weakening economy. We still think there has never been a better time to buy a Subaru thanks to super-low interest rate offerings on its new cars. That being said, Subaru of America has just released its pricing for the 2021 Forester, as well as a string of new features that makes this off-road-ready SUV all the more appealing.
New standard features for 2021 include LED steering responsive headlights and high beam assist and a rear seatbelt reminder. The base model of the range starts off with an MRSP of $24,795 and includes standard features such as remote keyless entry and a 6.5-inch Multimedia infotainment system. The Premium trim will cost you $27,795 and offers standard goodies such as heated front seats and standard X-MODE with hill descent control.
The Sport starts at $29,395 and comes with standard Blind-Spot Detection with Lane Change Assist amongst others. The Limited goes for $31,395 and includes a STARLINK 8-inch multimedia plus system and perforated leather-trimmed upholstery.
Touring models sit at the top of the range and goes for $34,895. The Touring gets Black or Saddle Brown perforated leather-trimmed upholstery and an eight-way power front passenger seat amongst others.
All 2021 Subaru Forester trim levels are powered by a naturally-aspirated 2.5-liter Boxer engine mated to a Lineartronic CVT transmission and Subaru Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive system. This engine produces a maximum power output of 182 hp and 176 lb-ft of torque. Fuel economy is rated by the EPA at 33 mpg on the combined cycle, and towing capacity is a decent 1,500 lbs.
The 2021 Subaru Forester will arrive at Subaru dealerships in October.
