There are miles and miles to explore here in our neck of the northern Virginia woods. No compact SUV is more up to the challenge than Subaru Forester. Now, it's back in a new lineup of trims for the latest model year, ranging from base and Premium to Limited and Touring, and with an all-new Sport model in the pack, and one thing's for sure: the favorite crossover among orienteers Old Dominion over is once again charging ahead of the rest on the trail. Set out for basecamp here at Reynolds Subaru, and you'll see what we mean.

Power and Performance Features

When it comes to the capability to set a course for it all, few can match wits. The new Forester features:

  • A 182-horsepower, 2.5-liter SUBARU BOXER engine, flat-four by design for balance and efficient power delivery and capable of putting out 176 pound-feet of torque -- two ratings advancements from last model year
  • A Lineartronic® transmission, continuously variable for smooth shifting
  • Excellent fuel economy -- count on up to 26 mpg in cities like Charlottesville and 33 mpg up highways like US-15 North to Culpeper.
  • A Subaru Intelligent Drive (SI-DRIVE) system, offering specialized drive modes to tailor the trip to your needs
  • A four-wheel independent suspension and 8.7 inches of ground clearance, keeping the handling responsive and confident and the Forester undercarriage clear of most obstacles

Safety and Driver-Assist Features

When the terrain ahead goes from fair to rugged and weather-beaten, Forester is there to rein it in. Numerous features come together to deliver ultimate peace of mind from your driveway to well off the beaten path, including:

  • The proprietary, always-on Subaru Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive system, standard down the line and delivering the kind of steering compensation in diverse driving conditions that only a proactive, versus "slip-then-grip," system can
  • An available X-MODE® to help prevent wheel spin before it happens
  • Standard Active Torque Vectoring for cornering like a pro around sharp mountain curves
  • Standard EyeSight® Driver Assist Technology, which incorporates a cruise control that adapts your speed to traffic, pre-collision brakes to help prevent accidents, and lane departure, sway warning, and keep assist features to help you stay on track
  • Options for situational awareness like blind-spot detection, rear cross-traffic alert, and reverse automatic braking
  • A new DriverFocus feature, a distraction mitigation system that informs you when you deviate from your habits
  • Available LED head and fog lights, as well as LED steering-responsive headlights for illuminating turns
  • STARLINK Safety and Security service access, with collision notification and emergency and roadside assistance support, service notifications, the ability to run a monthly vehicle health report and get diagnostic alerts, and more; new for the model year, remote engine start, climate control, lock and unlock features, concierge service support, and more
