Leasing a Subaru Forester
The Forester was unveiled in 1997, with its fifth generation of iterations released in 2019. With the Forester, Subaru prioritised its malleability. For those looking for performance, it uses Subaru’s all-wheel-drive system and notable engine power. For families, it has far larger passenger space within its 5-door SUV frame than the majority of its competitors and an affordable price tag. This makes it ideal for larger families when compared with other Subaru models like the smaller Impreza and sporty BRZ. This all adds up to a smart SUV car lease and one of the best new Subaru lease options available today.
The Subaru Forester has a standard 2.0-litre four-cylinder engine, though in 2020 Subaru released the e-Boxer model for those on the lookout for electric vehicles. It also has a continuously variable transmission (CVT), adding to the versatility of the Forester SUV, ensuring its suitability on several terrains from roadways to the Outback. With fuel economy of 35 mpg, the Forester doesn’t guzzle fuel at quite the same rate as some other SUV crossovers.
Subaru has a number of Forester trims to ensure that there’s a Forester for every driver. The Forester Premium improves on the basic trim by adding an All-Weather Package and keyless access, whilst the Limited trim improves further with leather upholstery and additional driver assistance features. Though not as comprehensive, the Forester Sport has been designed for those in need of a sportier drive, with hill descent control and a unique exterior design. The best Forester trim currently available is the Forester Touring, which includes a distraction mitigation system and superior infotainment features.
The Touring trim offers the finest infotainment system, including multimedia navigation, the Forester still includes Subaru’s Starlink touchscreen infotainment system as standard. In addition to this, Starlink includes a variety of driver assistance safety features, though if these are important to you, you’ll need to think about getting a Limited trim or higher to obtain blind-spot monitoring and other features.
Whether its a personal lease or business lease, a Subaru Forester is subject to Subaru Warranties. These ensure the vehicle is covered for 36 months, with extension opportunities available where required. Subaru Forester’s should also be serviced every year by professionals who can be found through their comprehensive Subaru Servicing plan site.
For a similarly renowned SUV for sportier drivers, think about a Land Rover Range Rover Sport lease. If the size of your car isn’t a factor, then Audi Q2 lease deals might be a preferable option. Or, if you’re looking to splash out and have a slightly larger monthly budget, then a BMW X3 estate lease might be for you.
