2016 Subaru Forester Overview:
About the 2016 Subaru Forester
Only in its third year the 2016 Subaru Forester is already the most popular vehicle in this Japanese manufacturer's lineup. In the highly competitive compact crossover market, this vehicle offers drivers a roomy cabin and an excellent view of the road along with the utility and high safety ratings that drivers of this class demand.

The 2015 model received an overall exterior styling boost based on its concept of functional simplicity, which is repeated in the 2016 model. New this year is an improved touchscreen interface over all trim levels, including the base 2.5i, that makes operating entertainment easier. Safety and security features have also been added.

The 2016 Subaru Forester is available in six different trims, all of which have all-wheel drive, beginning with the base 2.5i. A 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine is standard in the base model and in the 2.5i Premium, 2.5i Limited and 2.5i Touring. The two highest trims, the 2.0XT Premium and 2.0XT feature turbocharged 2.0-liter engines.

In addition to the roomy cabin and storage space for which this vehicle is known, other standard features include:
  • 17-inch steel wheels
  • Adjustable driver seat
  • Bluetooth connectivity
  • Rearview camera
  • Four-speak sound system featuring HD radio, a CD player and USB port
Among available options are:
  • Auto-dimming mirrors
  • Harmon-Kardon sound system
  • Alloy wheels
  • Navigation system
  • Adjustable-heigh power liftgate
EPA ratings are as high as 27 mpg city/highway.

How to Calculate The Dealer Cost of a Subaru Forester

Formula for Calculating Dealer Cost:

  • Example: Base Subaru Forester invoice price + the dealer Invoice price of all the options + destination - Holdback = Total Dealer Cost.
  • What is Holdback? A hidden amount that manufacturers give back to a dealer. It is a percentage of the MSRP or the Invoice price.

Total Dealer Cost (calculated above) + Taxes / Licensing Fees - Rebate / Incentive = True Cost (You can get rebates and incentives here)

Note: All Subaru Forester Prices above are approximate amounts. Prices are subject to change without notice.

A note about rebates: Most rebates are subtracted from the "on the road" figure. In most cases, you can have the rebate if you are arranging your own financing or you are paying cash. If you decide to use the manufacturer’s low interest financing, you do not usually get the rebate. Ask your dealer for details.
