At Faulkner Subaru - Bethlehem, we are proud to carry the 2021 Subaru Forester in our inventory!

To help your researching process, we've done some work for you. Keep reading to learn more about how the 2021 Subaru Forester lines up against the 2021 Nissan Rogue.

Performance and Power

The Subaru Forester offers standard all-wheel-drive on all trim levels, while you'll have to pay extra to upgrade to all-wheel drive on the Nissan Rogue. The Forester and the Rogue both have a 2.5-liter DOHC engine and can achieve similar torque and horsepower. The Forester also offers 8.7-inches of ground clearance for exceptional off-roading capacity.

The Forester and the Rogue have comparable MPG. However, the Forester beats out the Rogue in terms of towing capacity, so that's something to consider if you plan on moving or bringing along a boat or camping gear.

The available X-MODE with hill descent control is an excellent feature on the Forester that works to optimize the standard all-wheel-drive to provide exceptional traction on slick roads.


Interior and Cargo Space

If you're looking for a vehicle that can carry all your gear, a large load of groceries, or bring along the whole family and the dog, it's worth exploring these models. The Forester, however, offers more interior passenger volume at 111.9 cubic feet. It also has slightly more total cargo capacity with the rear seats lowered. Both the Forester and the Rogue can seat up to five people and offer available power-adjustable front seats.

You can find adaptable features like 60/40-split flat-folding rear seatbacks on both these models and unique storage solutions, like the Subaru Forester's underfloor cargo area.

Technology and Infotainment Features

The Forester and the Rogue come with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto connectivity for easy access to your smartphone apps on the available 8-inch touchscreen while driving. Both the Nissan and the Subaru offer the driver the choice to experience SiriusXM radio to access your favorite tunes whenever the mood strikes.

Safety Features

The Forester and the Rogue both offer advanced driver assistance features. These technologies work alongside the driver to help keep you safe whether you're on the highway or driving on the back roads to get home from work.

The Rogue and the Forester both offer driver-assist technologies like high beam assist, blind-spot detection, and pre-collision braking. The standard EyeSight Driver Assist Technology on the Forester offers technologies like advanced adaptive cruise control, with lane-centering steering and braking.

The 2021 Subaru Forester also offers the driver their DriverFocus system. This distraction mitigation system gives an alert if it senses the driver is inattentive, and for extra convenience, it will remember passenger preferences like mirror positions and seating placements.
