The main features (radio, CD), as well as illumination/dimming will work. For those functions, the 20-pin power/speaker harness is plug-and-play.

The older car's SWC buttons (if it has them) won't work. Cars with the phone/BT buttons use completely different resistors and have 8 buttons instead of 6 on the older cars. See this post.

The older car's aux harness (again, if present) has an 8-pin plug, as opposed to the 2013 HU using a 16-pin socket (for aux and BT microphone). I can build an adapter harness so the Forester's aux jack works. Adding a BT mic is a bit trickier, but can be done.

The older car doesn't have a USB socket. To add that currently would require a very expensive OEM USB harness, plus the newer-style pod in the center console that has both a USB socket and 3.5mm aux jack. Not worth the expense, IMO.
