Subaru

forester

s now just another word about the eyesight system if you're sitting in the car that's these two pods right here which are cameras that look forward that is standard on all new

forester

s that's going to do your collision warning emergency braking lane departure warning lane sway warning lane centering assist and adaptive cruise control and you can see here is this is the controls for the adaptive cruise and the lane centering assist that is standard on all new

forester

s you also have something called SI drive that's standard on all these cars now so you essentially have two different drive modes for the engine I is the intelligent mode which is going to get you a little bit better fuel economy that's kind of a normal mode and then asses

sport

so if you want a little more power you can put it in

sport

and you'll know which one you're in with that little indicator eye s I s also standard on new

forester

s is the auto start/stop function you can see the button to disable it there low down on the left side of the steering wheel that little a off so that's how you would turn that off but that feature is standard on all new

Subaru

forester

s there's a little bit better shot of the outside of a

base

base

model

Forester

so you'll notice when you get the

base

you get the steel wheels with the hubcaps and you also get no tinted back windows now there's only one option package on a

base

forester

and...
2020 subaru forester base premium sport limited and touring differences
this is it it's called the alloy wheel package so you'll see that the wheels you get are different on the car those are actual alloy wheels instead of steel wheels and when you get the alloy wheel package you also get the roof rails on the top of the car so that you can put the crossbars on it and do your roof rack er E again no tinted windows and all the other stuff is the same on this car total price for the alloy wheel package after the package discount is $600 so that's your

base

model

Forester

let's move up to the

premium

and see what we get with that the

premium

gives you the rear privacy glass it gives you these alloy wheels the back seats on the

premium

model can recline you also get a center armrest with cupholders and on the

premium

you get rear air vents some

premium

s depending on the option package will also include the dual USB charging ports for the backseat passengers all

premium

s have the panoramic moonroof in fact all

forester

s have the panoramic moonroof except for the

base

models the

premium

gives you a 10-way power driver's seat now in the front of the

premium

you have heated front seats and also a couple of key features become optional on

premium

level depending on your package you can get it with the push button start and you can get it with the blind spot monitors which are those amber lights right there that will show you when there's a car in your blind spot and if I push and hold this button the

premium

is available with the...
2020 subaru forester base premium sport limited and touring differences
power rear liftgate again depending on the option package I'm gonna go over those option packages for you now you have two available option packages on

Forester

Premium

Package 14 gives you blind spot monitoring rear cross-traffic alert and keyless access with push-button start package 15 gives you all those same features plus a power rear liftgate okay so now we move on to

Forester

sport

now the

sport

model has pretty much all the same features as the

premium

it's primarily an appearance package so you'll notice the black painted alloy wheels the orange trim underneath the doors and on the roof rails you have the orange trim on the rear of the vehicle there and it's a little hard to tell because this one's a dark color but on

Forester

sport

this part of the back is always black so that's another trim difference of

Forester

sport

it also says

Sport

on the back of it obviously and I chose this particular one because it's dark blue metallic and this is the only model that

Subaru

offers the dark blue metallic paint color on if you come around to the front the

sport

also gives you the black grille the black surrounds for the LED fog lights and a little bit more orange on the bottom of the bumper and the hood is white because we haven't taken the protective stuff off of it yet we just got this car in now you'll see in the front here the

Forester

sport

also has the LED fog lights and you get integrated LED turn signals in the rearview mirrors on...
the inside the seats that are in the

Forester

sport

are unique they're kind of a similar cloth material here to the seats you would get on a

premium

but then the side bolsters are a vinyl with the contrasted orange stitching you have similar materials and color schemes on the doors on the dash you have the orange stitching here as well as the anodized let me show you this one the anodized orange kind of vent covers and then down here you have the anodized orange bit as well now the X mode is a little bit

sport

y er for lack of a better term and for store

sport

I have a couple of different modes I can put it into snow and dirt and it'll tell me I'm in snow and dirt up there and I can also put it into deep snow and mud so what that does is it retuns the engines computers to deal with whatever whatever terrain you're in it basically retuns the throttle response the transmission response the traction control system in the ABS system and if I push down on this I return everything to normal like all the other new

forester

s the

sport

Forester

Sport

does have the SI drive but it's

Sport

sharp in the

Forester

sport

which gives you a little bit better throttle response so it's gonna feel a little bit faster if you put it in the

sport

sharp honestly it doesn't make a huge difference but it is there if you want the larger eight-inch touchscreen

Sport

is the first trim level where that is available as part of an option package and also if you want the Harman...
Kardon stereo

Sport

is the first trim level where that is available as well I'm gonna go over the different options for you now you have two available option packages on

Forester

Sport

Package 22 gives you the blind spot monitoring rear cross-traffic alert reverse automatic braking and the larger 8-inch touchscreen package 24 gives you all of those same features plus the Harman Kardon

premium

audio system and the power rear liftgate okay so now we move up to the

limited

model the

limited

gives you these alloy wheels right here the

limited

also gives you the fancy square see LED running lights and front fog lights if you want those right there those LED running lights that are lit up you have to get a

limited

or a

touring

the

Limited

's all come with leather seats on the interior it's a perforated leather all of the

Limited

's will include the larger eight-inch touchscreen and the push-button start you also get dual zone automatic climate control on the

limited

so I can set different temperatures for the driver and the passenger with these two knobs right down here if you want factory navigation it is available in an option package on the

limited

it's not standard on the

limited

the one option package you can get on a

limited

is option package 32 that gives you the StarLink 8 inch multimedia navigation system 576 watt equivalent 9 speaker Harman Kardon audio system reverse automatic braking and a heated steering wheel so that is your

Forester

limited

...
let's move on to the

touring

and finally we arrive at

Forester

touring

now in brooo World

Touring

equals top so if it's a

touring

it's the top package for that particular model the

touring

has the unique wheels that you see here it has the silver accents down below it has the silver accents up here on the roof rails and it doesn't show that well on this car because the car silver but the mirror caps are all finished and silver as well the

Touring

gives you full LED lighting in the front LED running lights LED headlights and LED fog lights same as the

sport

but with the chrome surround on the

touring

the

touring

is the only

Forester

that gives you a power passenger seat it's an eight-way power passenger seat that is height adjustable the

touring

also gets a nifty little trick in the cargo area if I pull that or pull that my back seats fold down that is something that's exclusive to a

touring

in here as far as features all

Touring

's are going to give you everything they come with the navigation system they come with the Harman Kardon stereo system they come with the heated steering wheel they come with the heated back seats and I don't know if you can see it on the camera sometimes you can there's an infrared camera in there that is the driver monitoring system that will tell you when you're falling asleep and keys to the memory seating so if you program your memory seat and register your profile on the driver monitoring system the

Subaru

...

Forester

touring

will recognize your face when you enter the car and set the seat and mirrors to your preset position you also get paddle shifters on the

touring

if you want to control a gear you're in heated steering wheel and everything else that you could want out of a new compact SUV so that's my breakdown of all the different trim levels for the

2020

Subaru

Forester
