Subaru has just announced the pricing details for the new generation Forester in our market, which is significantly more expensive than before. The lineup comprises five grades and one single engine choice, and deliveries will commence in late spring when the first copies arrive at dealers nationwide from the Gunma factory in Japan.
Pricing kicks off at $29,695 for the base model, $2,600 more than the old entry-level variant. It comes with 17-inch alloys, LED headlamps, dual-zone climate control, dual 7-inch screens, a reversing camera, keyless entry, cloth upholstery stitched together with blue string, and a few other goodies.

The 2025 Subaru Forester Premium starts at $31,995, a $1,700 bump, and it adds a larger 11.6-inch touchscreen infotainment system, a wireless charging pad, electric driver's seat adjustment, a leather-wrapped steering wheel, a panoramic power moon roof, and more.

For the Sport grade, interested parties are looking at a minimum of $34,495, $2,630 more than before. This flavor brings 19-inch alloys with a bronze look, additional bronze touches, gray StarTex upholstery with brown stitching, Harman Kardon premium audio, more safety gear, etc.

Next up is the Limited, which is $2,020 costlier and has an MSRP of $35,995. It comes with the goodies found on the Premium and adds 18-inch wheels, perforated leather-trimmed upholstery with blue stitching, a hands-free tailgate, a heated steering wheel, and more safety features.

Subaru is asking at least $39,995 for the Touring, a $2,600 bump over the old one. This model rides on 19-inch wheels and comes with ventilated and heated front seats, a smart rearview mirror, heated rear outboard seats, leather and suede upholstery, premium audio, and others.

Last but not least, the Japanese car manufacturer has announced that the 2024 Forester Wilderness carries over from the previous model year. Interestingly, this vehicle remains in production next to its successor, featuring a unique face (over the old Forester), LED fog lamps, water-resistant seating surfaces, all-weather floor mats, etc. It is also available with a generous array of options, and price-wise, it remains the same at $34,920. Keep in mind that all pricing details mentioned in this story exclude the $1,395 destination and delivery charge.

All versions of the 2025 Subaru Forester use the same boxer power unit, a revised 2.5-liter mill that churns out 180 horsepower (183 ps/134 kW) and 178 pound-foot (241 Nm) of torque. The engine is hooked up to a CVT (continuously variable transmission) that channels everything to the brand's symmetrical all-wheel drive system with active torque vectoring.

The AWD is standard across the range, and the model returns 26 miles per gallon in the city, 33 mpg on the highway, and 29 mpg combined, which comes out to 9.1/7.1/8.1 l/100 km, respectively. So, is the refreshed Forester your next ride?
