Vehicle Overview

Introduced in 1997, the Subaru Forester has made a name for itself as one of the first compact crossover SUVs put out for sale. It is also one of the top choices in today's market-thanks to loads of interior space, standard all-wheel drive (unlike other vehicles of its ilk), and an exterior that draws from the SUV and station wagon body styles. The 2018 model year finds the Forester close to the end of its fourth production cycle, with four trims available for sale: a base-level model, the Premium, the Limited, and the Touring.

The 2018 Subaru Forester-which has two rows of seats for accommodating up to five people-provides 108.3 cubic feet of passenger volume.

For comfort and convenience, the vehicle starts off with features such as keyless entry, Bluetooth® wireless connectivity for hands-free phone operation and audio streaming, a 4.3-inch color multi-function display, four-speaker audio, AM/FM radio, HD Radio™, a single-disc CD player, a USB data port and an auxiliary audio jack for playing music from your mobile devices, and the STARLINK™ infotainment system integrated with a 6.2-inch LCD touchscreen.

For ensuring a smooth, bump-free ride-even on rough surfaces-the vehicle uses a strut front and double wishbone rear independent suspension. Its electric power-assisted rack-and-pinion steering provides a turning circle of 34.8 feet. If the car is powered by a turbocharged 2.0-liter engine, paddle shifters appear on the steering wheel and the suspension is more firmly tuned for a sportier, more exciting ride.

2018 Subaru Forester's Powertrain

The standard engine is a 2.5-liter horizontally opposed four-cylinder (H4), which generates 170 horsepower and 174 lb-ft of torque. However, if you go with the Limited or Touring trim, you can opt for the previously mentioned 2.0-liter turbocharged H4, which is leaner and more powerful. Its output is rated at 250 horsepower and 258 lb-ft of torque, and it is accompanied by a dual chrome-tipped exhaust system. The base-level and Premium trims have their engines mated to a 6-speed manual transmission while the Limited and Touring engines roll with a continuously variable transmission. Reserved for the Limited, turbo H4-powered Premium, and Touring is X-MODE®, which is a drivetrain technology that reduces wheelspin to boost traction control.

2018 Subaru Forester's Safety

For restraint and cushioning in the event of a crash, the 2018 Subaru Forester has two front impact airbags, a driver's knee airbag, a pair of front seat-mounted side-impact airbags, and dual roof-mounted side curtain airbags. Other standard safety features on the vehicle include traction control, electronic vehicle stability control, LED daytime running lights, a rearview camera, electronic brake-force distribution, a four-wheel disc brake system, anti-lock braking, brake override, and brake assist. For security, the vehicle comes with an anti-theft system that combines the previously mentioned keyless entry with engine immobilization. If you choose the Premium, Limited, or Touring, there will be the addition of STARLINK™ Safety and Security, which provides services such as stolen vehicle recovery, automatic collision notification, roadside assistance, and SOS emergency assistance. The Limited and Touring have additional hill descent control. Unique to the Touring are high beam assist, reverse automatic braking, and the EyeSight® driver-assistance technology suite for features like adaptive cruise control, sway warning, pre-collision braking, lane departure, and lane keep assist. If you go with the turbo H4 engine, larger disc brakes will be installed on the wheels.
