Hanahan area residents can still get the Forester in base level, Premium, Sport, Limited, and Touring.

Performance

The flat-four engine underneath the Forester's hood has a 2.5-liter displacement and produces an output of 182 horsepower and 176 pound-feet of torque. Although acceleration is decent, the engine truly shines in the fuel efficiency department. Even with power going to all four wheels, the Forester is still able to achieve an EPA-estimated 26 MPG in the city and 33 MPG on the highway.

Credit is also due to the auto start-stop system for eliminating unnecessary fuel consumption and a continuously variable transmission (CVT) that saves on energy with its gearless mechanism. Paddle shifters for the CVT are added on the Sport and Touring for more operational convenience.

Interior

Summerville customers will be pleased with the interior of the 2021 Subaru Forester. The two rows of seats are spacious and can accommodate up to five adult occupants with ease. Especially exceptional is the cargo space. Between the rear seats and the liftgate is 35.4 cubic feet of cargo space, one of the largest in the class. Fold down the seats, and you gain a maximum and class-leading cargo volume of 76.1 cubic feet.

A leather-wrapped steering wheel and front-seat power adjustability and heating are added on the Premium. Leather seat trim replaces the standard cloth at the Limited trim level. Notably, the aptly named Sport has exclusive racing-style upholstery with orange stitching. Only the Touring has rear-seat and steering-wheel heating.

Comfort and Convenience

West Ashley drivers are provided with a robust Starlink multimedia system for infotainment integration. Starlink brings together elements such as:

  • Four-speaker AM/FM/CD stereo system
  • Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto™ smartphone integration
  • HD Radio
  • Dual USB ports and an audio jack
  • Bluetooth® hands-free phone calling and audio streaming
  • Trial subscriptions to SiriusXM Radio and SiriusXM Travel Link

This model year marks the extension of keyless access with push-button engine start to the Premium trim, which also gains two additional speakers and a Wi-Fi hotspot. At the Sport trim level, Subaru introduces a color multifunction display (instead of a monochromatic one), as well as dual rear charging-only USB ports.

At the Limited trim level, Subaru adds climate controls in the front passenger side (in addition to that of the driver), and the liftgate gains powered operation. In addition, the 6.5-inch touchscreen is replaced by a larger, eight-inch one. Only the Touring has a nine-speaker Harman Kardon® sound system and a navigation system that includes voice-activated controls and a trial subscription to SiriusXM Traffic.

Safety

For 2021, a rear seatbelt reminder is standard across all trims. It joins the EyeSight driver-assistance suite, which provides:

  • Pre-collision braking and throttle management
  • Lane departure and sway warning
  • Adaptive cruise control with lane centering

Seven airbags are on board to provide protection when there's a crash. Other standard safety features on the Forester include the following:

  • Hill descent control
  • Vehicle dynamics control
  • Traction control
  • Trailer stability assist
  • Four-wheel anti-lock disc braking with brake assist and brake override
  • LED daytime running lights

The Sport trim gains blind-spot monitoring with rear-cross traffic alert, which is a new attainment for this model year. Also debuting at the Sport level are lane change assist, high beam assist, and the Starlink Safety and Security suite of functions. Reverse automatic braking is reserved for the Touring.
