For the 2020 model year, the Subaru Forester will be slightly more expensive, but there's a lot of value here.

The actual MSRP rings in at $24,495, up $200 from the 2019 model. Destination charges have also increased from $975 to $1,010.

Subaru's suite of active safety equipment, EyeSight, is standard on all models for 2020.

The same 2.5-liter flat-4 engine provides hustle for the Forester and produces 182 horsepower and 176 pound-feet of torque. A CVT is the only transmission offered. All-wheel drive is, of course, standard.

The Premium model jumps $700 and rings in at $28,405 after the increased destination charge.

Yet, there's still value packed in. Rather than make it an option, Subaru now bundles the All-Weather Package as standard equipment.

It comes with heated front seats, heated mirrors and a windshield deicer.

As buyers climb through the hierarchy of trims, they'll find more niceties ranging from a leather-wrapped steering wheel to a power liftgate and additional active safety technology.

Look for the 2020 Forester at dealers, and most likely in colder climates, later this year.
