Exterior - 2021 Subaru Forester

North Coast Subaru offers the 2021 Subaru Forester near Roslyn in five core trim levels: Base, Premium, Sport, Limited and Touring. All share the same dimensions: 105.1-inch wheelbase, 182.1 inches long, 71.5 inches wide, 67.5 inches tall and an 8.7-inch minimum ground clearance. That ground clearance is higher than most competitors and helps if you take your Forester off-road. The base model has automatic LED headlamps and high beams, and these are now adaptive, which means they swivel as you steer in order to illuminate where you are driving to rather than just straight ahead. The base model has 17-inch steel wheels. The Premium and up have alloy wheels, and 18-inch wheels are available.
