How Roomy Is the 2023 Subaru Forester?
Many people hear the word “compact” and automatically assume that vehicles classified as such don’t have much interior room, but the 2023 Subaru Forester proves that line of thinking is wildly inaccurate. Like the other SUVs in our venerable lineup, the new Subaru Forester has plenty of space for passengers and all their gear.
By now, you might be asking yourself, “How many seats are there in a Subaru Forester?” If that question is a refrain running through your head, you should know the accommodating SUV has seats for five adults across two breezy rows.
Passengers in both rows have ample room to get comfortable. Legroom in the front row measures 43.3 inches, which is more space than any other vehicle in the compact SUV class offers. The Subaru Forester offers the second-most rear legroom in its hotly competitive class, coming in at 39.4 inches.
The 2023 Subaru Forester has one of the largest cargo capacities in its segment. Behind the second row, you’ll have access to 28.9 cubic feet of cargo space. You can increase the SUV’s cargo capacity to a cavernous 74.2 cubic feet by folding the back seats. With such an impressive maximum cargo capacity, the Subaru Forester makes it a breeze to transport bikes, supplies from the hardware store, and a whole lot of luggage, camping equipment, or groceries.
Do you have to transport gear that won’t fit in the SUV’s spacious cabin? That’s not a problem for the Subaru Forester. The Wilderness model can tow up to 3,000 lbs. with the right equipment while all other trims can tow as much as 1,500 lbs. when they’re outfitted appropriately.
