View InventoryWhat are the 2020 Subaru Forester Trim Levels

Vehicle Overview

Still early into its fifth generation of production, the Forester-Subaru's compact crossover SUV-receives a pair of changes to keep it among the strongest choices in its class. A rear-seat reminder is now standard, and a lane centering system is now available. The trim levels, however, remain unchanged. They include a base model, the Premium, the Sport, and the Limited.

Southfield MI - 2020 Subaru Forester's Overview

Base Trim - 2020 Subaru Forester

With a standard all-wheel drivetrain to keep tires planted on surfaces (including slippery ones), the 2020 Subaru Forester is powered by a 2.5-liter four-cylinder boxer engine with 182 horsepower and 176 lb-ft of torque. This engine includes auto start-stop technology to eliminate engine idling, and it is joined with a continuously variable transmission, which uses a small amount of energy due to its lack of gears. As a result, fuel efficiency is solid: at 26 mpg in the city and 33 mpg on the highway. At 8.7 inches, ground clearance on the Forester is rather high for its class; consequently, it'd be hard for the undercarriage to sustain damage on the roughest of trails.

A five-seater-there's two rows of cloth-trimmed seats-the 2020 Forester provides Starlink infotainment integration with a 6.5-inch high-resolution LCD touchscreen. Included with the Starlink system are a four-speaker AM/FM/CD stereo system, Bluetooth hands-free phone calling and audio streaming, two USB ports for playing media from mobile devices, Android Auto and Apple CarPlay for smartphone integration, and four months of SiriusXM Radio and SiriusXM Travel Link. Joining the previously mentioned rear-seat reminder are a host of safety features. Seven airbags provide restraint and cushioning if there's ever an accident. Disc brakes, brake assist, anti-lock braking, electronic brake-force distribution, and brake override team up for ensuring superb stopping ability. The EyeSight suite of driver-assistance technologies combine adaptive cruise control, lane keep assist, lane departure and sway warning, and pre-collision braking.

Daytime running lights increase awareness to your presence on the road for preventing unnecessary collisions. Vehicle dynamics control, traction control, trailer stability control, and active torque vectoring make the Forester a very stable-driving vehicle. A rearview camera monitors your reverse driving, and theft deterrence is enforced with the combination of keyless entry and engine immobilization.

Premium Trim - Subaru Forester in Southfield

The Premium trim level provides more travel-primed touches with front-seat heating, 10-way power adjustability with power lumbar support on the driver's seat, and a leather-wrapped steering wheel. X-MODE joins the all-wheel-drive system for reducing or increasing individual wheelspin to enhance traction ability. Regarding entertainment, the Forester gets two additional speakers for a six-speaker setup. And there's a 4G LTE Wi-Fi hotspot for Internet access. The Starlink Safety and Security package makes its debut here. It provides functions such as automatic collision notification, SOS emergency assistance, remote engine start, roadside assistance, and a monthly vehicle health report. Also debuting at this level is hill descent control for safe and controlled driving down a hill.

Sport Trim - Subaru Forester in Southfield MI

For a racing-style feel, you can opt for the aptly named Sport. As a result, it comes with larger wheels and disc brakes, and it is the only trim with sports seats with orange contrast stitching. Keyless access and push-button engine start make it more convenient to enter the Forester and get you started on your journey. A pair of USB ports go to the back for charging mobile devices. And high beam assist automatically lowers illumination when sensing approaching vehicles and brings it back up to continue penetration into the distance.

The Limited trim level welcomes leather upholstery in place of the cloth seat trim. Dual-zone automatic climate control means that the front passenger can join the driver in individualizing heating and cooling preferences. And entertainment is enhanced with the appearance of HD Radio, an audio jack, and an 8-inch high-resolution LCD touchscreen. EyeSight is joined by a trio of driver-assistance functions: blind-spot monitoring, rear cross-traffic alert, and the aforementioned lane change assist.

Top Level Trim - 2020 Subaru Forester

For the most loaded version of the Subaru Forester, go with the range-topping Touring. It has the paddle shifters and LED fog lights of the Sport trim. However, it pulls away with more comfortability for the road (rear-seat heating, steering-wheel heating, 10-way power on the front passenger seat, and driver-seat memory), increased convenience in expanding cargo room (rear-seat one-touch folding ability), a more robust infotainment system (navigation system and a nine-speaker 576-watt Harman Kardon stereo system), and additional driver-assistance functions (reverse automatic braking and the DriverFocus distraction and drowsiness mitigation system).
