2020 Subaru Forester near Baton Rouge LA is Practical and Adventurous


The 2020 Subaru Forester near Baton Rouge LA is the perfect blend of adventurous image and practical nature. If you want a sensible SUV that's well made but not flashy, the Forester is for you. Because the 2019 Forester was newly redesigned for the model year, there haven't been many changes for 2020. However, there are a few new features that buyers may find appealing. The standard-fit adaptive cruise control system has been upgraded with a lane-centering function, and a lane-departure prevention feature replaces the lane-keep assist function. The tire-pressure monitor now displays the pressure in each tire, an LED lamp illuminates the license plate on all models, and a rear-seat reminder alerts the driver to check the back seat upon exiting the vehicle if the rear doors were opened before the start of the trip. Premium trim models now come standard with the contents of last year's All-Weather package-heated exterior mirrors, heated front seats, and a windshield wiper de-icer-and Touring models get LED cargo-area dome lights with off-delay and an LED tailgate light.

The 2020 Subaru Forester near Baton Rouge LA is roomy enough to carry a family of four or five comfortably, and has plenty of space for cargo. Parents will be happy to discover it has highly rated child seat anchors, wide opening rear doors and a wide-ranging set of safety features. In fact, the 2020 Subaru Forester received the highest possible safety rating from IIHS (Insurance Institute for Highway Safety). Adventurers will appreciate the Forester's outstanding ground clearance and standard all-wheel drive, while appreciating its comfortable, quiet ride on paved roads. Although the Forester doesn't have super quick acceleration, its engine power is reasonable for the class. The Forester comes with a 2.5-liter 4-cylinder engine that feels sufficient in most driving situations. You won't be burning rubber with this 182-horsepower engine, but you will get great gas mileage!

Rather than add a lot of "pretty" but unreliable technology, the 2020 Subaru Forester near Baton Rouge LA has a simpler set of technology features, starting with the perceptive StarLink® infotainment interface. It comes standard with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, two apps that allow you to smoothly connect your Smartphone to use jointly with the infotainment system. A 6.5-inch touch screen, four speakers, satellite radio, HD Radio, and a pair of USB ports are also standard. Higher trim levels get a set of charging ports in the rear. Additional infotainment options include an 8-inch touch screen, a Wi-Fi hot spot, Bluetooth hands-free text messaging, a nine-speaker Harman Kardon sound system, and a navigation system.

8.7 Inches of Ground Clearance in the 2020 Subaru Forester near Baton Rouge LA

The Forester has a tall stance (its 8.7 inches of ground clearance is one of the highest in the class), but it never feels like a hulking SUV. Instead, its smooth handling feels more like what you'd get with compact cars like the Subaru Impreza, and the Forester's steering and brakes are quite responsive. This is the only vehicle in the compact SUV class that comes standard with all-wheel drive. Subaru's X-Mode, standard on all trims except the base, optimizes grip for snow or mud and adds hill descent control.

There are five trim levels for the 2020 Forester near Baton Rouge LA: base, Premium, Sport, Limited, and Touring. All models come with the 2.5-liter engine, a CVT (a type of automatic transmission), and as stated above, all-wheel drive. One or two packages are available on most trims, offering items such as blind spot monitoring, a power liftgate, and a navigation system. If you want leather upholstery, heated seats, or other amenities, you have to advance to a higher trim level. If you want a good value, go for the Premium trim. It has cabin amenities such as heated front seats, a power-adjustable driver's seat, and reclining rear seats. There's a reason Subaru sells so many of these compact SUVs-they're easy to love and hard to fault. Visit us at Baldwin Subaru to fall in love with one of your own!
