View Inventory

If you're seeking a utility vehicle with comfortable and configurable accommodations, convenient space requirements, and a penchant for adventure, the 2021 Forester could be your ideal match. This well-rounded crossover offers roomy seating, flexible cargo capacity, and tons of standard and available amenities; plus, the all-season capability and off-road prowess you expect from a Subaru.

New for 2021, Forester adds steering-adaptive LED headlights and automatic high beams to the base trim. Elsewhere in the lineup, the Premium trim adds keyless proximity entry and push-button start, and Sport models equip blind-spot monitoring and rear cross-traffic alert.

Design

From the first look, you can tell Forester is ready for adventure. The dynamic headlight design and prominent grille and bumper combination highlight an aggressive front fascia. And a broad stance, muscular sculpting, and tall ride height cement Forester's bold and rugged character.

Standard adaptive headlights with automatic high beams provide better visibility around corners without distracting other drivers. And available raised roofs add extra carrying capacity beyond interior cargo space. Drivers planning to venture away from the asphalt will also appreciate Forester's lower protective cladding and 8.7-inches of clearance.

Accommodations and Utility

The 2021 Forester is great for city streets, crowded parking lots, or other tight situations thanks to its compact space requirements. But don't think it isn't roomy. Inside the inviting and thoughtfully arranged cabin, Forester offers spacious accommodations for up to five, with ample leg and elbowroom for all passengers. And the well-cushioned and bolstered seats provide excellent comfort for even the longest drives.

Behind the second row, Forester saves 31 cubic feet for your groceries, gear, or luggage. And for maximum cargo space, the 60/40 split-folding seats can increase capacity up to 70.9 cubic feet (76.1 on base models).

Performance

Whether you're navigating city traffic, coasting down the highway, or cruising winding backroads, Forester delivers a smooth and refined ride with precise steering control and balanced handling. Looking to go exploring? You'll appreciate standard Symmetrical All-Wheel-Drive and 8.7 inches of ground clearance. Premium models and higher add X-MODE® traction and hill-descent control for improved trail proficiency, and the top three trims add a setting for Deep Snow/Mud.

Under the hood, Forester is motivated by a capable and efficient 2.5-liter BOXER® engine. A Lineartronic® CVT distributes 182 horsepower and 176 pound-feet of torque to all wheels and helps Forester achieve EPA-estimated mpg ratings of 26 city, 33 highway, and 29 combined.

Technology

Forester's STARLINK® Multimedia system keeps you connected, entertained, and on the right track without distracting from your drive. And Apple CarPlay and Android Auto provide hands-free smartphone operation, integrating your favorite apps and content with the 6.5-inch or available 8-inch touchscreen.

Planning a family road trip? Premium and higher trims feature 4G LTE Wi-Fi connectivity, a perfect complement for the available STARLINK® Entertainment Anywhere kit. This package includes two Apple iPad® Wi-Fi models with OtterBox® Defender cases and two Harman Kardon® Bluetooth Headphones.

Safety

Subaru is widely renowned for its outstanding commitment to automotive safety, something fully exhibited in the 2021 Forester. In addition to sure-footed handling and advanced Symmetrical All-Wheel-Drive, Forester comes standard with the full suite of EyeSight® driver aids.

  • Pre-Collision Braking and Throttle Management
  • Lane Departure and Sway Warning
  • Lane Keep Assist
  • Advanced Adaptive Cruise Control with Lane Centering

Additional active safety features are available on Forester Premium and standard on higher trims, including Blind-Spot Detection, Lane Change Assist, and Rear Cross-Traffic Alert.
