Sprinfield Loves the new 2018 Subaru Forester's Features and Capabilities

If you've been following the Subaru brand for a while you will know already that they strive for zero-landfill manufacturing, which makes the 2018 Subaru Forester even more impressive. With low emissions already, the Forester continues to help the brand's goal toward sustainability and the benefits are passed onto its drivers. When you consider everything the 2018 Forester has to offer, you'll have no doubt that there are many perks to owning one in Decatur, Taylorville, and Jacksonville, IL.

The Subaru Forester's Performance

Subaru is known for having reliable and safe SUVs, which is why it's important to mention how economical these vehicles are also. You can rely on a Forester to provide you with generous fuel efficiency, but what exactly can you expect to get in the 2018 model year?

  • A 2.5-liter Subaru DOHC Boxer engine with 170 horsepower and 174 pound-feet of torque
  • Up to 32 mpg highway, 26 mpg city
  • An available 2.0-liter DOHC Direct Injection Turbocharged engine with 250 horsepower and 258 pound-feet of torque
  • Up to 27 mpg highway, 23 mpg city
  • Subaru Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive on all engine options

Many of our drivers take the Forester out to seek adventure, whether it's heading to Washington Park for a hike or driving to responsibly enjoy the numerous restaurants and breweries around town. There are plenty of ways you can use the Forester to help you achieve the life that you want, especially with its versatile interior features and performance specifications.

The Subaru Forester's Features

Now that we've laid out the engine options, you can find each engine option available with its own set of trim levels that offers a plethora of great features. These trim levels include:

  • 2.5i
  • 2.5i Premium
  • 2.5i Limited
  • 2.5i Touring
  • 2.0XT Premium
  • 2.0XT Touring

Each of these trims has something unique about them and offer even more features to keep you entertained and safe. Base trims of the 2.5-liter engine can expect to receive a 6.2-inch Multimedia touchscreen, while higher trims get to upgrade to a 7-inch Multimedia Plus touchscreen with navigation available. Bluetooth hands-free connectivity is a given, but you can also enjoy available EyeSight Driver Assist technology, Subaru STARLINK Safety and Security system, and leather-trimmed upholstery for added comfort. For more safety features, enjoy the optional Blind-Spot Detection, Rear Cross-Traffic Alert, Reverse Automatic Braking, Rear-Vision Camera, and Vehicle Dynamics Control.

For added comfort, upgrade to the trims that offer heated steering wheel, 8-way power driver's seat with memory function, power panoramic moonroof, an available premium audio system with 8 speakers, and SiriusXM All-Access Radio. There's a lot to love about the 2018 Forester, especially considering that with its generous interior space you won't feel packed in like sardines.

The 2.0XT trims offer an All-Weather Package that features heated seats, plus power driver's seat with memory, LED steering responsive headlights, which is a Subaru first, and dual-zone automatic climate control. Steering wheel-mounted paddle shifters offer hands-on shifting control, while you can enjoy the option of 6- or 8-speed manual modes. The sportier engine and shifting modes means you also need the sport-tuned suspension to go along with it, and with its bold new design, the look also says 'track ready.'

Space is a major factor in the purchase of a Subaru Forester, which is why our Springfield area customers will be happy to hear that with 8.7-inches of ground clearance and up to 108.3 cubic feet of passenger volume, this SUV has a lot to give. Plus, the Forester offers up to 74.7 cubic feet of cargo volume with the rear seat lowered so you, your friends, and pets can all hop in for a fun adventure together.
