Get Behind The Wheel of the New 2020 Subaru Forester


The 2020 Subaru Forester packs a tremendous amount of capability into its compact crossover body. Its ground clearance exceeds that of most of its rivals, and its time-tested AWD system makes it a great choice for weekend off-roading in the Santa Monica area. This year it gets a new lane control system and a rear-seat reminder, among other notable features.

The 2020 Forester has a serene ride to match its rugged good looks. All models get their power from a 182 horsepower four-cylinder engine that's mated to a CVT (continuously variable transmission). The Forester is equally at home on Santa Monica streets and country roads, and its cabin does much to dampen the engine's noise.


The infotainment system found in the 2020 Forester, known as StarLink, combines the manufacturer's telematics and software systems. The smallest screen comes in at 6.5 inches, and it supports smartphone integration through Android Auto™ and Apple CarPlay®. It swipes and pinches very well, and the app icons are bright enough to be seen in direct sunlight. With a step up to the Touring edition, you'll get Harman Kardon® audio, heated seats and steering wheel, and many other tech features.


The 2020 Forester has plenty of room for five passengers and all their gear. The front seats are comfortable and roomy, and the door cutouts are wide enough to make them accessible to a range of passengers. The rear seats have a commendable amount of legroom, and with the rear row folded flat, you'll find a little over 76 cubic feet of cargo area.


As practicality is an important goal, the 2020 Forester offers wide windows that provide excellent vision and safety, and the headlights are placed further back on the fenders than in previous generations. The rear liftgate is wide enough to provide a nice counterpoint to the specially shaped taillights. On Sport models, you'll find unique exterior accents and wheel styling.
