A Showdown Between the Subaru Forester and the Chevy Blazer
Select a category below to learn more about how the Subaru Forester compares to the Chevy Blazer.

Subaru Forester

You feel the mud beneath your feet as a breeze rolls through the trees. You just need an SUV with the capability to explore the great outdoors.

Built for Adventure

Both models can be equipped with all-wheel drive, although only the 2023 Subaru Forester comes standard with Symmetrical Full-Time All-Wheel Drive —so it’s ready for whatever obstacles lie ahead.

If you end up taking a less travelled road, maybe the Subaru Forester Wilderness is right for you. This off-road-ready trim comes with a plethora of all-terrain performance features that you won’t get with the Chevy Blazer. These include:

  • Enhanced 229 millimetres (9.02 inches) of ground clearance
  • Skid plates
  • Dual-function X-MODE®

Fuel Consumption

When you’re charting new paths, you need an efficient SUV that can go the distance. The Chevy Blazer offers a strong performance here with a 10.8L/100km city and 8.7L/100km highway rating.

The Forester, however, is a few steps ahead of the competition, boasting a 9.0L/100km city and 7.2L/100km highway rating.*


Subaru Forester

Whether you’re right around the corner or way off the map, the interior of your SUV is where it all happens. You need room for your friends and connectivity to keep you in the know.

Road Trip Ready

What do you need on every road trip? Friends and family, of course. Both SUVs offer seating for five riders, so there will be plenty of room for your passengers. A dual-zone automatic climate control system is also available on both models, so everyone can stay comfortable regardless of the season.

Both the Forester and the Blazer will keep you connected to the outside world. Their infotainment systems are anchored by an available 8-inch touchscreen. It gives you command of:

  • Apple CarPlay®
  • Android Auto™
  • SiriusXM®
  • Bluetooth®

Packing Up for an Adventure

You’ll have lots of cargo space in both SUVs to pack up your bags, but what about any souvenirs you collect along the way? Lower the rear seats to open 2,101 litres (74.2 cubic feet) of cargo volume in the Forester compared to just 1,818 litres (64.2 cubic feet) in the Blazer.


Subaru Forester

Peace of mind is paramount in any compact SUV. Whether you’re travelling by yourself or have the whole family along, having more confidence behind the wheel is imperative.

Forefront of Automotive Safety

Both the 2023 Subaru Forester and the Chevy Blazer come standard with intuitive safety technologies, including:

  • Pre-Collision Braking
  • Lane Keep Assist and Sway Warning

Adaptive Cruise Control is there to help keep your mind at ease during those long rides. It can automatically adjust the throttle and brakes to maintain a variable speed and keep a safe distance between you and the vehicle ahead. The one difference is that it comes standard with the Forester, while it’s only an option with the Blazer.

Staying Focused

The DriverFocus® Distraction Mitigation System is only available with the Subaru Forester. It provides an alert if it detects drowsy or distracted driving. You can then pull over and take a break or refocus on the ride.

Another feature you’ll only find in the Subaru is Steering Responsive Headlights. These headlights automatically turn in the direction that the steering wheel is turning, illuminating the road ahead.
