The Japanese automaker spoke about the changes that await the 2021 Subaru Forester crossover. The car will receive a slight price increase as well as more standard features.

Apparently, the 2021 version of the model year crossover won’t change much relative to the 2020 Subaru Forester. This will be the third year of sales for the current generation of the Forester, and it is also the third year in a row that buyers will not be offered a turbo engine. Subaru ditched the more powerful turbo engine for the Forester in 2019, leaving buyers with only the naturally aspirated 2.5-liter four-cylinder. In the new version of the model, this engine produces the same 182 horsepower and 177 Nm of torque as it is now.

Sensitive (turning) headlights and automatic dimming, previously reserved for high-end equipment, are now standard.

Subaru has added a seat belt reminder system as standard to the rear seats – visual and audible reminders will be given. Finally, the price of the base version of the crossover increases by $ 300 or 22,139 to $ 25,845.

The initial 2021 model year crossover will be the only one that does not have keyless entry to the passenger compartment, as well as a start / stop button. In addition, the sports version of the model now features blind spot monitoring and rear cross-traffic alert (previously optional). Subaru says the 2021 Forester will begin arriving at dealerships in October.
