American purchasers will be able to own a 2023 Subaru Forester soon: new vehicles will arrive in Subaru dealers in December.
After an extensive refresh of the interior and exterior for the 2022 model year, the 2023 Subaru Forester comes very similar to the predecessor.
Minor changes have been made across six trim levels, like a $625 option package to the base Forester that adds 17-inch aluminum alloy wheels in silver finish and a ladder-type roof rail design with tie-down points, or the Automatic Emergency Steering feature on select trims.
2023 is the fifth year of the current generation, and we expect to see an all-new Forester with a fully new design from the ground up for the 2024 model year.
2023 Prices vs 2022 Prices
New 2023 pricing including a destination fee is as follows: $27,620 Base, $30,620 Premium, $32,190 Sport, $35,245 Wilderness, $34,300 Limited, and $37,720 Touring.
Previous prices were the following: $26,320 Base, $29,320 Premium, $30,890 Sport, $33,945 Wilderness, $33,000 Limited, and $36,420 Touring.
Well, as we can see, a price rise is $1,300 across the lineup.
What’s Good About the Subaru Forester?
There are many advantages, in fact, one of which is the standard four-wheel drive.
The Subaru Forester is a versatile small crossover for a wide range of buyers, with one of the best-in-class quality-value ratios, and a good off-roader in addition. In terms of passenger and cargo areas, it is, again, one of the bests.
The Forester features a pleasant, quiet, well-built interior, though its infotainment system is not at the cutting edge. Also, it can boast a smooth ride, decent handling, and good fuel efficiency (26 city/33 highway MPG).
The compact SUV’s 2.5-liter 182-hp 4-cylinder engine combined with a CVT is economical but not the most powerful. You may lack power on the highway, and the acceleration is so-so.
If you are in doubt about whether to buy a Forester – buy it, and you should not regret it, because the crossover is a decent pick overall with very few real weak points.
