What's New for the 2020 Subaru Forester?

The Subaru Forester was redesigned just last year, when the 2019 model ushered in its fifth generation. For 2020, it builds on the exciting 2019 redesign, by adding new safety features and a wider availability of packages.

Beyond those updates, the 2020 Forester continues on the trajectory set by previous model years, delivering five-passenger capacity with renowned Subaru quality and reliability.

Available 2020 Subaru Forester Trim Configurations

There are five well-equipped trim levels available for New Iberia and Lake Charles drivers to select from when choosing the new Forester, starting at the entry-level base model, and moving all the way up to the high-end, luxurious Touring model.

The full rundown of available models includes:

  • Subaru Forester base. Starting at this level, Forester drivers can look forward to a long list of exciting standard amenities, including Apple CarPlay and Android Auto smartphone integration, automatic climate control, automatic LED headlights, Bluetooth, satellite radio, a touchscreen interface, and push-button start.
  • Subaru Forester Premium. Moving up to this trim level can equip the new Forester with even more sought-after features, adding standard rear air vents, a panoramic sunroof, roof rails, an upgraded audio system, and Wi-Fi hotspot. Plus, new for this year, starting at the Premium trim level, every Forester gets the Subaru All-Weather Package as standard equipment. This package delivers a windshield wiper de-icer, heated exterior mirrors, and heated front seats to the list of features.
  • Subaru Forester Sport. Highlighted with unique design and trim elements, the Forester Sport also adds LED fog lights, automatic high beam control, and added performance elements for drivers to select, including an additional driving mode and additional traction setting.
  • Subaru Forester Limited. This high-end model takes away the Forester Sport trim's design elements, and it adds impressive features, such as self-leveling and adaptive headlights, a power-operated liftgate, leather upholstery, and more.
  • Subaru Forester Touring. At the top of the trim level pyramid, the Forester Touring gives Opelousas drivers all the creature comforts and safety features they want, with navigation, heated rear seats, driver's seat memory settings, and much more added as standard equipment.

Features & Technology

Safety Features and Technology

Subaru vehicles are renowned for their safety, and the new Forester continues that tradition. Every trim in the lineup gives you a range of standard safety technologies as part of the Subaru EyeSight safety suite, which includes:

  • Adaptive cruise control
  • Lane departure warning
  • Pre-collision warning system with automatic emergency braking
  • Lane keeping assistance

Plus, as you move around the various trim options, more safety features become available. Blind spot monitoring and automatic reverse emergency braking are two highlights we think our Lafayette customers will really appreciate.


As part of the 2019 revision, Subaru streamlined the engine options for the Forester, and made the base powertrain more powerful. Now, every 2020 Subaru Forester comes powered by an efficient, 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine that produces 182 horsepower and 176 pound-feet of torque.

This engine comes paired to a continuously variable automatic transmission and, of course, comes with Subaru Symmetrical All-wheel Drive as a standard feature.
