More space, higher quality,
more comfort

There’s been no stone unturned in the design and engineering of the interior of the Subaru Forester. The Subaru Global Platform and ring-shaped reinforcement frame structure combine to reduce noise and create more space for all passengers. Improved aerodynamics, added damping material and more sound-insulating glass combine to create a quieter and peaceful passenger cabin. The seats are very supportive, the surfaces feature abundant soft-touch materials and there is a range of very engaging infotainment systems available.

2021 Subaru Forester More versatile cargo area

More Versatile Cargo Area

Although always a compact SUV, the Forester has become famous for its incredibly versatile interior designs. The 2021 model builds on this reputation with a cargo area design that’s both wider and bigger than previous generations. The cargo opening is wide enough to accommodate a tour-sized golf bag, the 60/40-split flat-folding rear seats fold much flatter, and the four tie-down hooks and four utility hooks provide better security for stored items. An integrated drive unit for the available power liftgate frees up even more cargo space, and the liftgate itself now has available automatic closing and locking functions. The Sport, Limited and Premier trims also feature an LED cargo light on the liftgate.

Even Higher Levels of Comfort

Built on the ultra-strong Subaru Global Platform, the 2021 Forester is better prepared to deliver class-leading levels of quietness and comfort. The brilliantly designed passenger cabin features more than ample shoulder room for the driver and co-driver, while those riding in the back will enjoy abundant hip and legroom. All the seats offer elevated levels of support and a wider heating coverage area for the available heated seats. On Limited and Premier trim levels, the driver gains a 10-way power seat with lumbar support and the co-driver receives an 8-way power seat.
