Subaru Forester Intros New 2025 On Record 2024 Sales

This past March the Subaru Forester had its best single month sales in 27 years topping 21,000 units. Just weeks later, a motor press intro test drive featured a completely new Forester — an even better daily driver with adventuresome four wheel fantasy cred.

New full inner frame construction increases rigidity by 10%, while increased high-strength steel, tripling up on bonding adhesives and sound deadening, makes for a serene, even cushy ride, thanks also to new fatigue defeating seating system.

Already top rated for safety, the new construction puts the $30,000 – $41,000 Subaru Forester ahead of the curve for next gen crash standards.
