Subaru of America, Inc. has introduced the 2025 Subaru Forester, with availability expected in late spring 2024. This iteration marks the sixth generation of the Forester and features updates such as a refreshed exterior design, improvements in interior noise reduction, and advancements in ride and handling. The vehicle is priced starting at $29,695.

Design and Interior Updates

The 2025 Forester's exterior has been updated to reflect a more contemporary aesthetic while retaining the vehicle's traditional rugged characteristics. The redesign includes a new grille and LED headlights, alongside pronounced wheel arches.

Interior enhancements focus on practicality and durability, with redesigned dashboard elements and textured accents. A dark headliner has been introduced to minimize the visibility of scuffs and scratches. Efforts to reduce cabin noise include the integration of sound-absorbing materials and improved welding techniques, aiming to create a quieter driving environment.

Standard on the 2025 Forester is Subaru's Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive and the latest iteration of the EyeSight Driver Assist Technology, which has been updated for broader operational conditions. The system now boasts a wider field of vision and updated software, enhancing its ability to detect cyclists and pedestrians.

New to the model is the Emergency Stop Assist feature, designed to bring the vehicle to a stop under certain conditions if the driver is unresponsive. A Rear Seat Reminder system is also standard across all models, prompting drivers to inspect the rear seat before exiting the vehicle.
