The Subaru Forester is fresh from a thorough mid-cycle refresh in 2022, so it’s no surprise that the compact SUV is a carry-over model for 2023. The Forester maintains an aggressive-looking frontend, impressive off-road skills, and an extensive suite of well-equipped models that can be further enhanced with numerous desirable optional features.
With its rugged styling, practical interior, and solid value proposition, the Forester has been a key player in a class of small adventure-ready SUVs that can do just about anything you wish.
If leasing the 2023 Subaru Forester is part of your to-do list for 2023, here’s what you should know.
Engine And Performance
Every 2023 Forester is motivated by a 2.5-liter naturally-aspirated four-cylinder that coughs out 182 horsepower and 176 lb-ft of torque. It pairs with a continuously variable automatic transmission and, like other Subaru models, all-wheel drive is standard across the Forester’s lineup. The Forester boasts responsive brakes, impressive steering feedback, and a comfortable ride. The compact Subaru is also capable on rough terrains, especially when you opt for the off-road-oriented Wilderness model with a whopping 9.2 inches of ground clearance. Though the 182-hp four-cylinder delivers enough power to keep the Forester running, we still hope to see a zestier powertrain that matches the vehicle’s rugged looks. For shoppers who might have some towing to do, the 2023 Forester has a max towing capacity of 1500 pounds.
According to EPA, the 2023 Subaru forester achieves a rating of 26 mpg in the city and 33 mpg on the highway. Opting for the off-road-enhanced Wilderness model reduces both ratings by 2 mpg and 5 mpg, respectively.
The Forester’s interior is where the SUV’s practicality takes center stage. Both front and rear seat passengers enjoy ample space, and there’s no room for cheap-looking plastics or bland designs. Base models feature cloth seats, but climbing up to mid-range trims unlocks synthetic leather upholstery, while leather-trimmed seats and attractive near-luxury materials are provided on higher trims. Optional features include dual-zone climate control, a panoramic power moonroof, an 8.5-inch touchscreen display with built-in navigation, a Harman Kardon premium audio system, etc.
Safety And Driver Assistance
Every 2023 Forester has a slew of active safety features, including the automaker’s EyeSight® Driver Assist Technology. Highlights of the latest Subaru Forester include

- Lane-keeping assist
- Pre-collision braking
- Pre-collision throttle management
