A Look at the Forester

The Forester is propelled by a 2.5-liter engine that's capable of producing as much as 182 horsepower. No matter where your adventures end up taking you, you can be confident that you'll have plenty of oomph on your side!

Due to its generous 111.6 cubic feet of passenger volume, this SUV boasts one spacious cabin. Occupants can look forward to taking advantage of 41.2 inches of headroom and 43.3 inches of legroom in the front and 57.2 inches of shoulder room and 39.4 inches of legroom in the back. 

There's also an abundance of room when it comes to storage, thanks to the 28.9 cubic feet of cargo volume located behind the second row. This allows space for anything from hiking gear to your kids' backpacks.

In the safety department, the Forester has you covered with the EyeSight® Driver Assist Technology.
