Expert Rating

Not Available

Unlike other websites and magazines, our ratings are not based solely on a singular road test, but rather a more encompassing batch of criteria: quality, safety, comfort, performance, fuel economy, reliability history and value. When comparing vehicles using our Rating System, it's important to note that the rating earned by each vehicle correlates only to the models within its class. For example, a compact car cannot be compared to a SUV—They are different vehicles altogether.

You can interpret our ratings in the following way:

5-Star: Outstanding vehicle. Only the most exceptional vehicles achieve this rating.

4-Star: Very Good vehicle. Very good and close to being the best vehicle in its class.

3-Star: Good vehicle. Decent, but not quite the best. Often affordable, but lacking key features found in vehicles of the same class.

2-Star: Below average vehicle. Not recommended, and lacking attributes a car buyer would come to expect for the price.

1-Star: Poor vehicle. Simply does not deserve to be on the road.

2022 Subaru Forester Preview, Pricing, Photos, Release Date

Model Preview

Entering the fourth model year on sale for the current-gen model, the Subaru Forester receives a refresh for 2022. The compact SUV arrives with an updated design, a new Wilderness trim, and new tech features. With the compact SUV scene continuing to be one of the more competitive ones on the market, the upgrades come at a good time for the Forester. Here’s a preview of what to expect from the 2022 Forester.

On the outside, the 2022 Subaru Forester gets more dramatic styling. The front end features a redesigned front fascia, a new grille, updated headlights, and new fog light coverings. These elements differ depending on trim level, giving different models a different look. Around back, the 2022 model doesn’t change that much from the current Forester.

The new Wilderness trim joins the Forester lineup with the most rugged design of the bunch. It has a bespoke front fascia, a unique grille, larger fenders, a heavy-duty front skid plate, an anti-glare hood decal, 17-inch black wheels, all-terrain tires, 9.2 inches of ground clearance, and hexagonal LED fog lights to portray its off-road-ready nature.


On the inside, the 2022 Forester’s refresh doesn’t bring any noteworthy changes. That’s not a bad thing as the current model’s cabin has a straightforward, clutter-free design. The center console has large, clearly labeled buttons and dials that sit below the center touchscreen. The Wilderness trim comes with water-resistant upholstery, while the Sport trim features orange stitching and accents.

When it comes to tech features, the 2022 Subaru Forester continues to come with the same features as the current model. That means the base Forester comes with a 6.5-inch touchscreen that includes Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. Other standard features include four audio speakers, two USB ports, Bluetooth, and satellite radio. Higher trim levels come with an 8-inch touchscreen, Wi-Fi hot spot, a Harman Kardon audio system, and navigation.

Subaru hasn’t made any changes to the new Forester’s powertrain. All models will continue to come with a 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine that produces 182 horsepower and 176 pound-feet of torque. The engine is paired with a CVT that routes power to all four wheels through a standard all-wheel-drive system. The Wilderness trim comes with an updated CVT and X-Mode system.

The 2022 Forester will come with Subaru’s EyeSight suite of advanced safety features as standard. The extensive safety suite includes forward-collision warning, automatic emergency braking, adaptive cruise control, lane-keeping assist, and lane departure warning. Blind-spot monitoring and rear cross-traffic alert are optional on the Premium trim and standard on higher trims.

Subaru has come out with Automatic Emergency Steering for 2022. The new feature assists with steering control at speeds of less than 50 mph to avoid a collision. The current Forester earned a five-star rating from the NHTSA and was named a Top Safety Pick+ by the IIHS. We expect these ratings to remain the same for the 2022 model.

Pricing & Release Date

The 2022 Subaru Forester will arrive at dealerships later this October.

Pricing for the 2022 Forester starts at $26,320 (with destination) and goes up to $36,420.

The compact SUV will compete with the Mazda CX-5, Honda CR-V, Toyota RAV4, and Hyundai Tucson.
