  • The 2025 Subaru Forester will soon go on sale, and the company has released pricing for each trim.

  • The Forester's base model now starts at $31,090, which is $2650 more than before; the rest of the lineup receives similar price increases between $2000 and $2930.

  • For 2025, the Premium starts at $33,390, the Sport starts at $35,890, the Limited starts at $37,390, and the Touring crests the $40K mark with a $41,390 base price.

The 2025 Subaru Forester lineup receives sizable prices increases across the board that follow its substantial redesign. Along with fresh bodywork, a stiffer platform, and myriad other upgrades, the least expensive Forester now starts at $31,090. That's $2650 higher than the outgoing version, and the other trim levels will be similarly more expensive when they go on sale later this spring.

Pricier Foresters

Subaru plans to introduce a hybrid powertrain next year, but for now every Forester has a revised 2.5-liter boxer four-cylinder engine that makes 180 horsepower and 178 pound-feet of torque; all-wheel drive remains a standard commodity. The Premium trim is the next step up from the entry-level Forester, and it starts at $33,390 ($2000 more than before). Then there's the $35,890 Sport and $37,390 Limited models, which see their base prices rise by $2930 and $2315, respectively. The Touring continues to be the top-of-the-line Forester. Thanks to a $2900 price hike, its $41,390 base price makes it the first Forester to crest the $40K mark (minus any options).

As far as available packages go, the Premium trim offers a $1200 kit that adds a power rear liftgate as well as a blind-spot monitor and rear cross-traffic alert. The Sport can be upgraded with an 11-speaker Harman Kardon sound system, a power rear liftgate, rear automated emergency braking, and extra drive modes via a $1700 package. The Limited can be optioned with a similar package that costs $1600 but adds TomTom built-in navigation.

For those wondering about the more outdoorsy Forester Wilderness, Subaru says the current version will continue to be sold alongside the new 2025 lineup. It will start at $36,265. However, we expect Subaru to release a new Wilderness model at some point, and we've even imaged what it might look like.
