What's New for 2021?

The 2021 Subaru Forester continues the model's fifth generation, which first launched for the 2019 model, with a few updates to feature availability. Automatic high beams and steering-adaptive LED headlights, which turn with the wheels for better illumination around curves, are now standard on all models. Keyless proximity entry with push-button start is standard on Premium and above, and the Sport trim adds blind-spot monitoring and rear cross-traffic alert as standard features.

Performance

All of the trim levels of the new Forester have the same great Subaru engine underneath the hood. Using a 2.5-liter four-cylinder SUBARU BOXER® engine, this SUV generates 182-horsepower. Your ride stays smooth as a result of the standard Lineartronic® continuously variable transmission. One of the biggest reasons that drivers in Milledgeville, GA, turn to the Forester is for its standard Subaru Symmetrical All-Wheel-Drive, something that is quite unusual for the compact SUV class.

The new Forester manages to be an incredibly fuel-efficient vehicle, thanks to its engine design and energy-saving all-wheel-drive system. It will travel an estimated 26 mpg in the city along with 33 mpg on the highway. Those are extremely respectable numbers for a non-hybrid vehicle of this size, especially a midsize crossover.

Design

With its high ground clearance, the Subaru Forester is not only ready for off-road adventures, but it is also striking in appearance. The athletic yet sophisticated appearance gets further enhanced by the eight paint options available. Choose from things such as Jasper Green, Crimson Red, Horizon Blue, and Crystal Black. Wheel sizes and styles vary from trim level to trim level, with the entry-level model sitting on 17-inch steel wheels and upper trims showing off 18-inch aluminum alloy ones instead.

Steering-responsive LED headlights are standard across the board. Upper trims take things even further by giving you steering responsive LED headlights. Except for the base model, all Forester models give you raised roof rails (available on base), a roof spoiler, and a panoramic power moonroof. Other available exterior features include LED fog lights, a chrome exhaust outlet, and integrated turn signals in the side mirrors.

Technology

Drivers in Perry, GA who go with the Forester will find easy-to-use technology meant to make your life easier and more fun. The popular SUBARU STARLINK™ infotainment interface is standard and includes both Android Auto™ and Apple CarPlay® compatibility. Touchscreen sizes range from 6.5-inches up to eight inches, depending on the model you decide is right for you. Standard across the board are useful tech features, such as dual USB ports as well as HD Radio™ and combability with internet radio apps like Pandora®. Available tech features include a Wi-Fi hotspot, premium sound system, and STARLINK™ Multimedia Navigation.

Safety

The Forester is a great choice as a family vehicle for many reasons, including the standard Subaru EyeSight® driver-assist features. Within this bundle are applications aimed at keeping your loved ones safe, such as Pre-Collision Throttle Management, Pre-Collision Braking, Adaptive Cruise Control, Lane Departure Alert, and Lane Departure Warning. You also will find the newly-standard rear seat reminder, as well as a rearview camera, equipped on all models. There are a few extra features found on higher trim levels as well. Examples include automatic high beams, Reverse Automatic Emergency Braking, and Blind-Spot Monitoring.

Trim Levels

The knowledgeable team here at Subaru of Macon can help you decide which of the five available Subaru Forester models is perfect for you.

The base model has features such as 17-inch alloy wheels, automatic climate control, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto smartphone integration, durable cloth seating, and the full Subaru EyeSight® suite of advanced driver aids. The 2021 Forester also comes standard with steering-responsive LED headlights, automatic high beams, and a rear-seat reminder system.

Option number two goes by the name Premium. It earns this title by adding things like a moonroof, a leather-wrapped steering wheel, a Wi-Fi hotspot, heated front seats, a 10-way power-adjustable driver's seat, reclining rear seats, keyless entry, and push-button start.

The adventurous Sport trim level adds 18-inch wheels, LED fog lights, 7-speed manual mode with paddle shifters, gloss-black exterior trim, and Blind-Spot Detection with Lane Change Assist and Rear Cross-Traffic Alert.

The penultimate Limited trim builds off the Premium tier with leather upholstery, dual-zone automatic climate control, an eight-inch touchscreen, and Blind-Spot Detection with Lane Change Assist and Rear Cross-Traffic Alert.

The top-tierTouring model adds the finishing touches, including premium perforated leather, heated rear seats, an 8-way power passenger's seat, a heated steering wheel, Harman Kardon audio, a driver distraction mitigation system, and Reverse Automatic Emergency Braking.
