New Subaru Forester in Riverhead NY

Long Island Becomes an Adventure in the New 2020 Subaru Forester

The iconic Subaru Forester came back to us here in Riverhead all-new just last model year. For this one, it's ruggeder, more capable, passenger- and cargo-friendlier, and better-equipped for discovering Long Island than ever. Check out all the compact SUV has to offer right here at Riverhead Bay Subaru!

What's New for 2020?

Aside from LED license plate lighting becoming a standard and the Touring trim adding LED lights for the cargo area, Subaru Forester received several exciting enhancements of note.

First off, a new rear-seat reminder system comes standard, helping to keep you apprised of occupancy.

Secondly, the tire pressure-monitoring system got upgraded; it now features helpful identification of which individual wheel needs air.

Thirdly, lane-centering and lane-departure prevention are now standard parts of the Subaru EyeSight driver-assist suite, simplifying staying on course.

Finally, an All-Weather Package, previously optional, is now standard on the Premium trim, adding a touch of comfort where it matters most on chilly trips.

Design Features

Subaru Forester will certainly turn heads around Brentwood NY, with sweeping windshield and window designs and thin structural pillars that offer just as panoramic a view of their looks and stares. It'll be just as hard-wearing, too, with front, side, and rear undercladding and lower-body cladding standard. Roof rails come standard on all but the entry level, and the Sport trim's got a sleek gloss-black exterior, accented by orange notes on the black underguards and rail mounts.

Power and Performance Features

A spirited 182-horsepower, 2.5-liter SUBARU BOXER flat-four engine powers every Subaru Forester drive, ready to produce 176 pound-feet of torque. Expect fuel economy that goes the distance when equipped with Auto Start-Stop and a Lineartronic continually variable transmission; the EPA estimates the SUV can get up to 26 mpg in a city such as Smithtown NY and 33 mpg down highways. Plus, with a towing capacity up to 1,500 pounds max and a stability assist feature for ease in trailering, you won't have to leave anything behind.

Safety and Driver-Assist Features

8.7 inches of ground clearance aren't all the help you'll have to avoid obstacles in and around Sayville on the way to your getaway. Subaru Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive, our automaker's proprietary AWD system, comes standard in every Subaru Forester, as do enhanced X-MODE, Active Torque Vectoring, and a Subaru Intelligent Drive (SI-DRIVE) engine management system. Together, they compensate for over- and understeer, reduce wheel slip, make cornering more precise, and optimize output. That provides a more confident drive across nearly any terrain.

Further, EyeSight Driver-Assist Technology is standard for comprehensive protection, and a Subaru DriverFocus Distraction Mitigation System is available to help improve your concentration while driving. Other optional security features include blind-spot detection and rear cross-traffic alert and reverse automatic braking. The result? Subaru Forester receives an IIHS rating of TOP SAFETY PICK+ when outfitted with available steering-responsive headlighting.

Interior and Technology Features

Every Subaru Forester is a home away from home for a southern New York State trek. It's got a roomy 111.9 cubic feet of space available for passengers, for one, with cloth, sport cloth, or leather-trimmed seating options, and heated front and rear seats are options to keep things toasty. You can even take advantage of up to 76.1 cubic feet of cargo space in base trims when you collapse the rear seats.

It's also highly tech-savvy. Choose among 6.5- and 8-inch SUBARU STARLINK infotainment systems, each of which features Apple CarPlay and Android Auto to accommodate smartphones. A built-in Wi-Fi hotspot's available for Internet access off the beaten path, and 576-watt-equivalent, nine-speaker Harman Kardon audio's optional to keep everyone entertained for the duration.

Available Trim Levels

  • Base
  • Premium
  • Sport
  • Limited
  • Touring
