    What Are the Trim Levels for the 2021 Subaru Forester?

    The Subaru Forester would be a smart purchase if you're interested in getting a reliable, stylish SUV. With two rows of seating, extra room for cargo, and a respectable towing capacity, there's a lot that you could do with the Forester.

    When you visit us at Marin Subaru in San Rafael, CA, you'll find several trims to choose from. There's really no way you could go wrong, but of course, you'll want to get the one that best suits your needs and preferences. Here is an introduction to what these trims have to offer.

    Base Model

    The base model is equipped with many modern features. They include the EyeSight Driver Assist Technology package, a touchscreen with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, and LED headlights that can adjust their angle based on what direction the Forester is traveling in - whether you're in San Francisco or Oakland.


    With the Premium, there are several advantages. The driver's seat is power adjustable, and there is keyless access with push-button start. This trim rides on 17-inch wheels, and it has a panoramic moonroof in addition to heated front seats.


    18-inch black wheels, along with orange exterior accents, help the Sport stand out. Inside the cabin, there is orange contrast stitching on the cloth seats. X-MODE and Hill Descent Control makes the Sport better equipped for rugged conditions. Blind-spot detection and rear cross-traffic alert can be very useful.


    At this level, things start to feel much more luxurious. This is largely due to the leather seats and 18-inch wheels. A dual-zone climate system is standard, and the power rear gate can be so convenient to use when your hands are full.


    The Touring trim is really appealing. It has saddle brown leather seats, and both of its front seats are power-adjustable. People in the back will enjoy having heated seats like those in the front. Making this SUV look more distinguished are satin chrome accents.
