The 2016 Subaru Forester carries on relatively unchanged with new audio and safety tech and a price bump across the lineup. The base model Forester 2.5i with the six-speed manual, for example, starts at $23,245, while the top-of-the line Forester 2.0XT Touring requires $34,645.

The new base price represents a jump of $200 and includes the destination fee of $850. Opting for the continuously variable transmission is $1,000 more. Base models come with a backup camera, Bluetooth connectivity, and a 6.2-inch infotainment screen. Other Forester models are $700 more than model-year 2015 including the Forester Premium, which costs $26,145 and $26,645 for the manual and CVT, respectively. Premium trim adds 17-inch rims, a 7.0-inch infotainment screen, power adjustable driver’s seat, tinted windows, and a panoramic moonroof.

The Limited model now costs $29,645 and includes an all-weather package (heated front seats, heated side mirrors, and windshield wiper de-icer), leather seats, fog lights, power liftgate, and automatic climate control. The Forester Touring is priced at $31,645 and includes a premium sound system, keyless access, and push-button start. All the aforementioned models are powered by a carry-over 2.5-liter four-cylinder rated at 170 hp.

For more power, the Forester 2.0XT gets a 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder that makes 250 hp, but is only available with a CVT. Pricing for the Forester 2.0XT Premium and Touring is $30,045 and $34,645, respectively.

New for 2016 is an updated Starlink safety system for Premium, Limited, and Touring models. A Starlink Safety Plus package adds emergency assistance, enhanced roadside assistance, collision notification, maintenance reminders, and vehicle health reports. Also available is a Starlink Safety Plus and Security package that adds stolen vehicle recovery, remote lock/unlock, and remote vehicle locator.
