2018 Subaru Forester

The Subaru Forester remains a top choice for those around Ontario who want a versatile crossover with the reliability and capability of a Subaru. The 2018 Forester price starts at just $25,995, and even the most expensive trim level, the 2.0XT Limited complete with the EyeSight® Package, starts at only $39,495. Between its low price and long list of features, any Forester review you read will be filled with praise for this crossover.

Muscular, Head-Turning Design

With the 2018 Subaru Forester, you will draw attention wherever you go in Oakville or beyond thanks to its muscular design and bold front fascia to accompany the alloy wheels and tail lights. As a Subaru, one of the stand-out features you get at any Forester price is the high ground clearance, letting you clear obstacles or snow with ease while delivering better views of the road.

Features like the power-adjustable side mirrors make life more convenient; these even include heating to get rid of frost and fog so you can always see clearly. The integrated LED turn signals and auto-dimming reflector functionality on higher trims are well worth the extra cost, as any Forester review will tell you. Factor in the automatic on/off headlights, and you have lighting others will be jealous of.

Those who want to let the outside in will appreciate the panoramic sunroof that lets every single passenger view the sky thanks to its extra-large dimensions. As a bonus, it makes the cabin feel even more spacious. Of course, the exterior of the 2018 Subaru Forester is also highly practical with its roof rails that let you carry whatever you need on top of the crossover.

Spacious, Practical, and Comfortable Interior

When you get inside the 2018 Subaru Forester, you will be treated to a refined cabin that is much more spacious than you might expect for a compact crossover. This model is also loaded with features for its low Forester price, including standard heated front seats and plenty of cargo space. You can recline the rear seats to get comfortable or fold them flat to bring cargo space to 2,115 liters. The four tie-down hooks plus two utility hooks make taking full advantage of this space a breeze. You can even opt for a cargo cover and cargo area tray for extra protection. The power tailgate complete with memory makes accessing this space quick and easy.

Of course, the interior of the 2018 Forester is also incredibly comfortable. In addition to standard heated front seats, the driver gets 10-way power-adjustment along with memory and a heated steering wheel if they want. Subaru paid attention to details in many ways you may not notice, such as engineering the center console so it improves rear legroom. You can even get heated seats in the rear without breaking the bank. The cabin is also nice and quiet so you can focus on the conversation instead of road noise.

Technology to Keep You Connected

No discussion of the Forester’s interior would be complete without discussing its infotainment system. All models have at least a 6.2-inch touchscreen with Bluetooth streaming audio, Aha Radio, SiriusXM™ Satellite Radio, and inputs for both iPod and USB along with Subaru STARLINK™. The last of these makes it simple to connect your smartphone and then access certain services and apps via the touchscreen with its intuitive swipe-and-scroll functionality. If that isn’t enough for you, a slight increase in the Forester price can give you a seven-inch touchscreen featuring voice-activated GPS navigation and additional connectivity.

Safety and Related Technologies

The technology in the 2018 Subaru Forester isn’t just limited to infotainment; the EyeSight® system delivers the latest safety technologies as well. Every single Forester has all-wheel drive, Vehicle Dynamic Control, and other class-leading systems. The EyeSight® system is what truly makes the Forester stand out from the competition. This system relies on two cameras that monitor the road in front of you, identifying dangers and giving you assistance. It includes Lane Keep Assist, Sway Warning, Vehicle Lane Departure, Pre-Collision Throttle Management, Adaptive Cruise Control, and Pre-Collision Braking. All this is in addition to the excellent visibility, rearview camera, High Beam Assist, and Reverse Automatic Braking, features which are standard and optional.

Powerful Efficiency

In addition to the standard Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive system that gives you traction wherever you take your crossover, any Forester review will praise both of the SUBARU BOXER engines. Whether you choose the 2.5-liter one with natural aspiration or the 2.0-liter twin-scroll turbocharged one, you will be in for a treat. Get up to 250 horsepower while using as little as 8.6 liters per 100 kilometers on the highway.
