Exterior and Performance

The 2020 Subaru Forester uses a horizontally opposes 2.5-liter SUBARU® BOXER 4-cylinder with the Dual Active Valve Control System and Dual Overhead Cams. The result is 182 horsepower, 176 pound-feet of torque, and a maximum towing capacity of 1,500 pounds with the Lineartronic® Continuously Variable Transmission. The standard Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive improves responsiveness, fuel efficiency, and handling while giving you up to an EPA-estimated 33 MPG on the highway. Helping with fuel economy is the Auto Start-Stop System that shuts down the engine at stops and restarts it again when your foot moves from the brake pedal.
