Subaru Infotainment Review | Testing tech in our long-term Forester

It’s not the quickest, but it’s easy to use-
Subaru isn’t top of mind when we start talking about the best infotainment systems, and after using the Starlink system in our long-term 2019 Subaru Forester for months, we still think Subaru is mid-pack.

The best aspect of the 8.0-inch touchscreen infotainment system in our Forester is its simplicity. You couldn’t ask for a more basic layout and software experience on this screen, and while that’s not the case for the upper second screen, most of your core vehicle functions are handled on the lower one. We’ll note that both the Subaru Outback and Legacy have newer, larger screens available that we’ll also go over later in this review. The Impreza, Crosstrek and Ascent offer up a similar experience as this Forester does.
