Subaru Bumps Price of 2015 Forester by $225, Adds Standard Sunroof
With any sort of luck, you've followed our experiences with the redesigned-for-2014 Subaru Forester. You know we like it a whole heck of a lot, with the Forester winning our compact crossover SUV comparison. For the 2015 model year, which comes just two whole months into 2014, the Subaru Forester is set to get even better. Increasing $225--$200 for the vehicle and $25 for destination and handling--the 2015 Forester starts at $23,045, including $850 for destination and handling. While that price is for a fairly basic model with a six-speed manual transmission, the 170-horsepower base 2015 Subaru Forester 2.5i now comes standard with a backup camera and color display as standard equipment for the first time. Subaru's continuously variable automatic transmission throws another $1,000 onto its standard price. The 2015 Subaru Forester 2.5i Premium comes in at $1,125 more than the outgoing model at $25,445, but it features a standard moonroof on manual transmission models, which was previously unavailable. Subaru's 2015 Forester 2.5i Limited and Touring models round out the bunch. Not to be forgotten, Subaru's EyeSight collision prevention and active cruise control technologies have gone down in price some $500 across the board for 2015. Full pricing is listed below, including $850 for destination and handling. 2.5i 6MT $23,045 2.5i CVT $24,045 2.5i Premium 6MT $25,445 2.5i Premium CVT $25,945 2.5i Limited CVT $28,945 2.5i Touring CVT $30,945 2.0XT Premium CVT $29,345 2.0XT Touring CVT $33,945 Options: Alloy Wheel Package $600 All Weather Package $500 All Weather Package + EyeSight $1,295 All Weather Package+ EyeSight+ Navigation $2,395 Navi+ Audio w/Harman Kardon® Amplifier and Speakers $1,850 Navi + Audio w/Harman Kardon® Amplifier and Speakers + EyeSight $2,645 EyeSight + Navigation $1,895 Source: Subaru
