A Look at the Subaru Forester

First making its grand debut on US roadways in 1997, the Subaru Forester was the brand’s solution to the pleas from drivers to offer more SUVs in varying sizes. Larger options, like the Outback, quickly put Subaru on the map as one of the brands to watch, especially with its rugged capabilities and high-quality construction, but drivers wanted more from the brand. Sharing its platform with the Impreza, the Forester showcased the easy maneuverability that we have learned to love about compact SUVs, yet with a powerful engine that amplified its capabilities and overall ride quality. Despite being built on a car platform, the Forester immediately struck drivers as rugged travelers who wouldn’t let them down if caught in dangerous weather or on challenging terrain.

Over the years, the Subaru Forester became more modern, with a more prominent grille design, halogen headlamps, and chrome detailing throughout, appealing to what drivers were looking for at the time. Multiple engines were in its lineup to provide the ride drivers were seeking out in their everyday travels, while desirable features, like leather seating materials, a sunroof, and keyless entry, made it more appealing to those seeking out comfort. As the Forester entered its third generation, it opted to ditch the boxy design and adopt a sleeker profile, with a sloping roofline and perfectly placed curves from front to back. Its look became more stylish and less rugged; however, its capabilities still displayed rugged satisfaction.

Once the Forester entered its fourth generation in 2014, it showcased a larger build to accommodate more, increasing legroom and cargo volume to handle more people and gear. Its design continued to get sharper and more defined over the last few years, catering to those interested in a modern SUV yet still demanding practical functionality out of their trusted traveler. More trims joined the lineup, including sporty and off-road oriented trims to entice even more drivers to check out this compact Subaru favorite, and as technology advanced, so did the Forester. Armed with one of the best safety systems in the business, those driving the Forester know they’re in for a safe ride, no matter what environment they’re traversing next.

The 2023 Subaru Forester

Durable, practical, and accommodating, the 2023 Subaru Forester is ideal for today’s modern travelers. Armed with standard Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive, the Forester can take on any type of road condition with absolute agility. Sending power to all four wheels simultaneously, this iconic all-wheel drive system ensures that no matter what greets you on your journey, it can handle it while keeping you safe. Multiple trims are also in its lineup, including the Wilderness model, which features exceptionally rugged features to propel you off-road like never before. From 9.2 inches of ground clearance and all-terrain tires to a reinforced skid plate and other durable features, the Forester Wilderness can take you to places you’ve never explored with unmatched confidence.

Through standard EyeSight Driver Assist technology, the 2023 Forester is even more equipped to deliver the ride you need. With features like a DriverFocus Distraction Mitigation System, your Forester ensures that you’re paying attention, no matter what, signaling to take a break if needed. Its versatility is key to its success in the industry, with ample cargo space and loads of features designed with a heightened experience in mind.
