With the Forester, you have five trims to consider. The base model is attractive for a number of reasons; it's affordable, it has numerous driver-assist systems, and it features a comprehensive infotainment system. Moving up one trim takes you to the Premium. Its key advantages are that it has a panoramic moonroof, heated front seats, and keyless access with push-button start.

The Sport sits in the middle of the lineup, and it comes with a bit more excitement with its paddle shifters, orange stitching on its seats, and LED fog lights. Towards the top of the list is the Limited, the trim where leather seats, a power rear gate, and a larger touchscreen become standard.

That takes us to the Touring, which is our most premium trim. It comes standard with navigation and an advanced audio system. It has heating elements in the front and rear seats as well as in the steering wheel.


Every one of our Foresters runs on the same type of engine. It's a 2.5-liter version that can give you 182 horsepower and 176 pound-feet of torque. The towing capacity is 1,500 pounds. All Foresters come equipped with symmetrical all-wheel drive, which can enhance your traction when the conditions aren't ideal when driving around Palo Alto, CA. Most trims also feature X-Mode, a system that optimizes performance when the road or trail is especially slippery. The estimated fuel economy in the 2021 Forester is 26/33 (city/highway) miles per gallon.

Exterior Design

The Subaru Forester is tall and athletic. Its height is one of the most significant ways in which it differs from the Outback and some of the other Subarus at our dealership. Because the SUV sits 8.7 inches off the ground, it can clear a lot of different types of obstacles. There can be either 17- or 18-inch wheels under the frame. Fog lights and a roof spoiler are some extra touches that help the Forester stand out.

Some trims have chrome accents, and all trims except for the base model come with a panoramic moonroof. One great thing about the Subaru Forester is that it has LED steering responsive headlights. These lights can adjust their direction when the vehicle is turning to illuminate dark roads around Menlo Park, CA better.

Inside the Cabin

Legroom is very generous, with there being almost 40 inches of space in which rear-seat passengers can stretch their legs. Behind the seats, there's a dedicated cargo area that has a volume of 31.1 cubic feet. Cargo capacity can be increased to more than 70 cubic feet when the rear seats are folded down. Depending on the trim you select, you could have cloth or leather seats. Power-adjustable seats can be really convenient to use, and the available leather-wrapped steering wheel is a nice touch.

The Forester comes standard with STARLINK technology and a touchscreen. In the three lower trims, the touchscreen measures 6.5 inches. In these trims, Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, and SiriusXM are included. The Limited gets enhanced with an eight-inch touchscreen and comes with the option to get navigation, which is a standard component on the Touring.

In most Forester trims, you can stay connected to the network anywhere you go in Redwood City, CA, or elsewhere, thanks to the SUV having built-in Wi-Fi capability. If you love music, consider getting a model with a Harman Kardon premium sound system.
