How Does My Subaru Forester Lease Work?
Leasing means you ‘rent’ a brand-new car for a set period, usually 2-5 years, depending on your chosen contract length. You won’t own the car and return it at the end of your agreement. You do need to keep the car in good condition, but don’t need to worry about depreciation costs or a balloon payment once your deal ends.
Simply choose your preferred Subaru Forester lease model, plus your annual mileage, contract length and upfront payment. You can also add an optional maintenance package if you wish. If you’re happy to go ahead with your monthly price, we’ll finalise your agreement and deliver your new Subaru Forester free of charge.

Benefits Of Your Subaru Forester Lease
Many car manufacturers these days spend a great deal of time and money emphasising how trendy, stylish and fashionable they and their models are. Not Subaru – the Japanese brand made its name producing no-nonsense workhorse vehicles beloved by rural motorists.
Subaru leasing offers more of a fuss-free, back-to-basics nature than a lot of its rivals. If you’re someone who appreciates this kind of take on things, you’ll find a lot to like about the Forester.
While its mostly a functional car, the Subaru Forester does offer tremendous reliability, robust build quality, genuine off-road ability, and loads of space for both passengers and luggage.
If you regularly have to deal with muddy back lanes or icy conditions while driving – or have a couple of large dogs or unruly teenagers to transport – the rugged Forester is an excellent choice.
Great Range Of High-Tech Safety Features
How Does The Subaru Forester Drive?
The Forester is a very practical choice for family motoring. Its high roofline ensures copious amounts of space for occupants in the front and rear, while wide-opening doors and large windows make it both easy to get in and out of, and pleasant to travel in once you’re on board.
Regarding boot capacity, the Forester can accommodate 520 litres of luggage with all seats in place – or a massive 1779 litres when they’re folded down. Braked towing capacity is strong, too – the Forester can haul 1870kg of caravan or trailer.
This is an area where the Forester comes up short a bit. Despite the presence of mild-hybrid technology on the latest model, this is still a large, 4-wheel-drive, petrol-engined car with an automatic gearbox – which is not a great combination if you’re looking for good fuel economy.
Approaching 35mpg is about the best you’ll get out of it, but towing, off-road driving or high-speed cruising on the motorway will all result in a lower figure.
Subaru Forester Lease Models
The Forester comes in just 1 body shape – a large and boxy-looking 5-door family SUV.
Subaru used to be known for its turbocharged, rally-inspired ‘WRX’ models, but those days are behind it now and there’s no special high-performance variant of the Forester.
Subaru Forester Trim Levels
XE XE Premium
There are just 2 Forester trim levels to pick from – the entry-level XE has a good level of standard kit, including power-folding mirrors, rain-sensing wipers, alloy wheels, a leather steering wheel, heated front seats, dual-zone air conditioning, an 8-inch touchscreen, digital radio, adaptive cruise control, 4-wheel drive and Subaru’s package of active safety systems, which is called EyeSight.

The main thing the Subaru Forester offers over its rivals is genuinely rugged off-road ability. While many family SUVs look the part with roof rails and chunky wheelarches, they’re liable to get stuck once the road turns muddy or a hill gets steep.
Reliability is one of Subaru’s specialities – its cars have long been trusted by those with jobs or hobbies that see them tackling harsh conditions and punishing workloads on a daily basis.
The Forester can fit 520 litres of luggage with all seats in place, expanding to 1779 litres when they’re folded down.
Just 2 – XE and XE Premium. The latter adds rear privacy glass, larger alloy wheels, a sunroof, a heated steering wheel, leather upholstery, a powered tailgate and satnav.
The Forester has a rear-view parking camera and a system that’ll apply the brakes if it detects you’re about to reverse into something at low speeds.
Very. It can hold plenty in its cabin and boot, and tow a good-sized caravan, trailer or horsebox, too.
People love the Subaru Forester for its unpretentious image, considerable off-road ability and versatile nature.
