2.5i Foresters come in four trims, Base, Premium, Limited and Touring. Base trims are stripped of most luxury features but still feature the basics like a tilting and telescoping steering wheel with audio controls, a sunglass holder and a 4-speaker stereo with MP3 capabilities. Premium models get a panoramic sunroof, roof rails, 17-inch aluminum alloy wheels, a 10-way power adjustable drives seat, reclining rear seats, a 4.3-inch multifunction color display screen, a 6 speaker stereo and a rear view camera. Limited models come standard with the CVT transmission and with leather seating. Heated front seats, a power lift gate, fog lights, a rear spoiler and heated mirrors are also standard equipment on Limited model Foresters. Top of the line Touring models feature everything from the Limited trim plus a navigation system and a dual-zone automatic climate control system.
Forester 2.0XT models come in two trims, Premium and Touring. Both get the more powerful 250 hp engine, better brakes and more aggressive styling, highlighted by a new front fascia and 18-inch wheels. The Touring and Premium models are otherwise similarly equipped to their 2.5i namesakes.
Accident avoidance is covered by several safety systems. Anti-lock brakes, traction control and stability control are standard, but all Foresters other than the Base model benefit from a rear backup camera. Subaru's symmetrical all-wheel-drive system is of course standard across all model ranges. Passive safety equipment includes several airbags, including knee and side curtain airbags and a rollover sensor. Keyless entry and an engine immobilizer are also standard.
