Forester 2.0XT Touring

The 2.0XT Touring is the “ultimate Forester”, perfect for the driver who wants both horsepower and luxury.

The 2.0L Turbo engine produces 250 hp and features 3 different driving modes.

Forester 2.5i Touring

A great choice for the whole family, the 2.5i Touring model comes with nearly all of the “bells and whistles”. The leather seats give it a luxurious feel while remaining easy to wipe clean of any spills. The advanced Kardon audio system and 6 speakers allow you to take all of your favorite music on the road with you.

Forester 2.5i Limited

The 2.5i Limited model is a great fit for those who want some of the more luxurious benefits if the Touring model but don’t want to spend too much out of pocket. 2.5i Limited offers a lot of standard features that aren’t available on the 2.5i and 2.5i Premium, including standard windshield wiper de-icer, heated outside mirrors, leather interior and X-MODE. This standard technology controls AWD torque, engine output and more, making the Limited a great choice for the adventurous driver.

Forester 2.5i Premium

The Forester 2.5i Premium is a step up from the base model and is a great option for those looking to upgrade from a base trim level vehicle. Premium adds a few more bells and whistles to the already impressive 2.5i model, including a standard panoramic power moonroof, rear spoiler, STARLINK™ 7-inch Multimedia Plus, 6 speakers and more.

Forester 2.5i
