Subaru presents an all-new Forester every five years (with a “mid-cycle refresh” in the fourth year). The generation on sale now was introduced for the 2019 model year. Subaru makes a very couple of changes in the third year of the product cycle because the car is still modern and advanced.
Larger and Better
The wheelbase increased to 105.1 in. from 103.9 in., with the gain benefiting rear-seat legroom, which is now 39.4-in., a 1.4-in. boost.
Gains in headroom, hip and shoulder space further reinforce guest convenience and a feeling of spaciousness in the cabin. Wider rear door openings and a high C-pillar angle make ingress/egress and installing a child seat much easier.
2021 Subaru Forester Interior
The material utilized for the cargo area flooring, sides and rear gate interior trim deal a textured surface to withstand dirt. Pockets on the front seatbacks are now divided to more quickly organize items such as publications and electronic devices.
The roomiest Forester cabin yet is also the quietest, thanks to the Subaru Global Platform’s fundamental resistance to noise, vibration and harshness (NVH). Roadway sound is substantially decreased and Subaru has worked to ignore certain frequencies to make conversation or listening to music at highway speeds comfier.
The rear gate opening optimum width is now 51.2-in. wide, a 5.3-in. increase over the previous model and approximately 8-in. Larger than on some competitive SUVs. For instance, with the Forester, it will be possible to load a full-size golf bag sideways without tilting it. A power rear gate is standard on Limited and Touring trim levels and available as a choice for Premium and Sport.

2021 Subaru Forester Powertrain
All Forester models are powered by a new version of the 2.5-liter SUBARU BOXER four-cylinder engine, now with direct fuel injection and higher compression, in addition to an active valve control system (AVCS) on the exhaust side. The new engine produces 182 hp and 176 lb-ft of torque, versus 170 hp and 174 lb-ft in the previous Forester.
The Forester comes standard with Lineartronic CVT. The new powertrain not just yields quicker acceleration than the previous Forester but also up to 33 mpg highway fuel economy (maker’s quote, pending EPA accreditation).
Including more versatility for driving conditions is a standard driver-selectable SI-DRIVE. SI-DRIVE is a powertrain performance management system that allows the motorist to tailor the vehicle’s throttle qualities by choosing in between “Intelligent” and “Sport” modes (Sport Sharp on Forester Sport).
