Research: 2022 Subaru Forester SUV

2022 Subaru Forester in Vancouver, near Portland, OR

With its refined accommodations, flexible cargo capacity, and a city-friendly physical footprint, the 2022 Subaru Forester is an excellent choice for Portland-area drivers seeking spacious versatility without imposing space requirements. Forester offers a wealth of available amenities, including standard Symmetrical All-Wheel-Drive and EyeSight® driver aids. Plus, with Subaru's rugged capability in its DNA, Forester can go places other compact crossovers can't.


Under the hood, the 2022 Subaru Forester is powered by a 2.5-liter BOXER® engine that delivers 182 horsepower and 176 pound-feet of torque to the wheels via a responsive Lineartronic® continuously variable transmission.

If you're looking for enhanced all-weather or off-road capability, the 2022 Forester is readier than most, with standard Symmetrical All-Wheel-Drive, 8.7 inches of ground clearance, and X-MODE® traction and hill-descent control. And for even more trail-tackling tenacity, the all-new Wilderness trim adds adventurous upgrades like Yokohama GEOLANDAR® all-terrain tires, an exclusive dual-function X-MODE system, a 180-degree Front View Monitor, and a suspension lift to 9.2 inches of ground clearance.

Accommodations and Utility

Though technically a "compact" crossover label, the Subaru Forester is surprisingly spacious. The welcoming and modern cabin makes excellent use of its dimensions, providing plenty of headroom and legroom and 31 cubic feet to spare for your groceries, luggage, or other gear. And when you need to prioritize cargo, the 60/40 split-folding second-row seats fold easily to the cargo to 70.9 cubic feet (76.1 on base models).

The cushioned and ergonomic seats offer long-distance comfort, and there are numerous comfort and convenience amenities to enhance your daily Longview or Portland commute. Examples include dual-zone automatic climate control, a reclining rear seat, heat front seats, leather upholstery, and a power liftgate.

Technology and Safety

Subaru's STARLINK® Multimedia system lets you keep in touch, listen to music, and get directions without distracting you from your drive. Apple CarPlay and Android Auto seamlessly integrate useful smartphone apps and functions like hands-free calls and messaging, Google and Apple Maps, streaming media, and more. Premium and higher trims also feature 4G LTE Wi-Fi capability, a perfect match for the available STARLINK® Entertainment Anywhere kit, which includes two Apple iPads® with OtterBox® Defender cases and two pairs of Harman Kardon® Bluetooth Headphones.

The 2022 Forester also provides an extra degree of security and confidence, with EyeSight® advanced driver-assistance technologies included as standard equipment on all trim levels, including.
