The 2018 Subaru Forester is poised to serve the busy commuter and family driver equally well. Travelers, especially those who love adventure, will find much to help them on their way. Budget-minded shoppers will appreciate that the Forester took home the 2017 ALG Residual Value Award. Let’s look at how the Forester may cover your needs.


There are two ways to enjoy time behind the wheel of the 2018 Subaru Forester. The standard Boxer engine gives it a lower center of gravity for better handling. It generates 175 horsepower and 174 lb.-ft. of torque. Geared to save you at the pump, a Lineartronic transmission is on the menu. You may prefer the turbo with 250 horsepower and 260 lb.-ft. of torque. Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive is always part of the package. Drivers appreciate the sure-footedness of four-wheel drive when it’s needed and front-wheel drive when conditions are clear. High ground clearance encourages Forester drivers to take the trail less traveled.


The Subaru Forester offers real utility, the latest technologies and the most comforting amenities in a well-appointed interior. Regardless of trim level, high quality materials enhance the design. The Limited wears leather seats and a panoramic moonroof. It also has heated seats and a heated steering wheel. On the dash, Subaru Starlink includes a touchscreen with voice commands. You’ll find Pandora, Aha, and other smartphone integration apps. Music sounds better with the eight-speaker, 440-watt Harman Kardon system. The hold measures 34 cubic feet, handling luggage for a family of four. If you are bringing home an antique desk, you can fold the seats for 74 cubic feet. A removable tray is under the hold floor, offering extra organization and security. A programmable power liftgate may be paired with a power-fold backseat.


While Subaru Eyesight can’t substitute for the driver’s judgement, it does offer peace of mind. Subaru is offering a rear autobrake, a system not found on most rivals. If an obstacle or car is detected during a reverse maneuver, the autobrake may stop the Forester. Alerting the driver, a forward collision watch may trigger a forward autobrake. Likewise, a pedestrian watch is tied to an automatic braking system. A lane assist may help the driver keep the Forester within its marked lane. These features helped it earn IIHS Top Safety Pick. Other important driver aids include blind spot detection and a rear cross traffic alert. Even without crash avoidance features on board, the Forester scored all five stars during federal crash testing.
