Noteworthy Differences Between 2019 and 2020

New for 2020, the Forester has added more standard and available safety features on each trim. One new feature that is great for traveling with kids is the standard backseat reminder system that will let you know if you opened the back door for the pet, the kids or anything else and did not reopen it when you parked and got out of the car.

There are five trim levels listed below:

  • Base
  • Premium
  • Sport
  • Limited
  • Touring

The standard safety features include the Subaru EyeSight system. This system includes the following technologies for your peace of mind. There is a full-speed forward collision warning with automatic emergency braking, blind-spot warning with rear cross-traffic alert (not available on the base model), adaptive cruise control, and lane departure warning. There is also reverse automatic braking, which is available on the Sport, Touring and Limited trims.

All 2020 Subaru Forester models also come with standard torque-vectoring all-wheel drive. This system pumps out 182 horsepower from a 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine that comes with a continuously variable automatic transmission for smooth transitions between gears.

The 2020 Forester now offers LED license plate lights as well for a touch of luxury and convenience. The 2020 Forester is the most capable, most comfortable and roomiest model yet!
