Subaru Forester: Capable Performance

Under the hood of the 2018 Subaru Forester, you'll find a bunch of great performance features including a standard 2.5L 4-cylinder SUBARU BOXER® engine that gets 170 horsepower. There's also the available 2.0L 4-cylinder SUBARU BOXER® engine. Designed for sport performance and power, it can produce an impressive 250 horsepower.

If you want to drive through the snowy streets of Bloomfield or rough terrain around the area, a Forester can make things easier. With standard Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive, you can get the traction and control necessary for a smooth and safe performance. X-Mode is also standard on select trims to ensure enhanced stability on slippery surfaces and steep hills.

Plus, the 2018 Forester can get up to an EPA-estimated 32 MPG highway when equipped with advanced Lineartronic® CVT.

Advanced Safety

The Subaru Forester has always been famous for its safety, and the 2018 model is no different. It comes with Blind-Spot Detection and Rear Cross-Traffic Alert as well as a Rear-Vision Camera and Reverse Automatic Braking for peace of mind when you're traveling. It also features standard Vehicle Dynamics Control to keep your car steady when driving through less-than-ideal road conditions.

EyeSight® is included for the 2018 Forester, too. This available suite of driver-assist technologies acts as a second pair of eyes as it monitors the road ahead as well as your actions. The features in this system will let you know if you're at risk of getting into an accident or if you unintentionally sway out of your lane. They'll even hit the brakes for you in certain situations to ensure your safety.

On top of that, the Forester has Steering Responsive Headlights that point in the same direction as the steering wheel to ensure optimum visibility when driving at night. Thanks to this feature and the advanced EyeSight® safety system, the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety named the Subaru Forester 2018 TOP SAFETY PICK.
