Subaru's 2020 Forester compact SUV will retail for at least $25,505, which includes a $1,010 delivery fee, when it goes on sale later this year.

The 2020 Forester increases its entry price by $200 with light updates following the fifth-generation 2019 Forester. The 2020 model adds a rear-seat reminder across the lineup, enhanced EyeSight driver-assist technology, and the new DriverFocus distraction-prevention technology.

EyeSight adds lane centering and lane departure prevention. It's now standard equipment on any Forester model. Reverse automatic braking remains an option.

Foresters are powered by a 2.5-liter Boxer engine that makes 182 horsepower and 176 pound-feet of torque that delivers power through a Lineartronic CVT (continuously variable transmission) to an all-wheel drivetrain. The vehicle is rated to deliver 33 mpg on the highway, and the vehicle can tow up to 1,500 pounds.

Subaru will offer Forester in five trim grades, including base, Premium, Sport, Limited, and Touring. The Touring would retail for $35,605, including the delivery fee, and includes DriverFocus as standard equipment.
