2018 Subaru Forester in Durham - Chapel Hill

The High-Riding and Confident 2018 Subaru Forester is Always a Solid Option

There's a very good reason that the Subaru Forester has remained a top option among compact-SUV buyers; or, there's about a hundred reasons. Things like standard AWD, high ground clearance, and an affordable starting price means that this comfortable crossover is also perfect for adventurers. Trim levels for the 2018 model include the Forester 2.5i, 2.5i Premium, 2.5i Limited, 2.5i Touring, 2.0XT Premium, and 2.0XT Touring.

Varied Interior Styling

With so many trim levels, there are a lot of options for customizing the best Forester for your lifestyle--whichever you choose, though, you'll be getting class-leading visibility thanks to a huge rear window, and up to 74.7 cubic feet of total interior cargo area. The intriguing new 2018 2.5i Black Edition offers an exclusive design pattern with black cloth upholstery and black gloss dashboard trim. Go up to the top Touring trim for dual-zone automatic climate control, a heated steering wheel, driver-seat memory settings, and beautiful perforated leather upholstery.



Tall, Dark, and Handsome

That's the way to sum up the new 2018 Forester--8.7 inches of ground clearance means that this tall and confident SUV can tackle rougher roads and trails; the 2.5i Black Edition adds black-finished wheels, exterior trim, and grille for a smooth, dark finish; and its classic Subaru exterior cuts a handsome figure.

Performance, Practical and Potent

For your casual commuter, the Forester's standard 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine--with 170 horsepower and 174 pound-feet of torque--provides plenty of get-up, well-balanced with efficiency and impressive fuel economy. A six-speed manual comes standard on the base model, but most Forester SUVs run on Subaru's CVT. Boost up to the Forester's 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine, that's good for 250 horsepower and 258 pound-feet of torque, for quick acceleration and more power. Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive comes standard on all models.

Connected Tech and Forester EyeSight

Looking for a smart and savvy new compact SUV? The 2018 Forester comes standard with a 6.2-inch touchscreen display, running Subaru STARLINK with Bluetooth connectivity; a 7-inch display is available on select higher trims. On the Premium and above, you can add the EyeSight safety package, which adds adaptive cruise control, blind-spot monitoring with rear cross-traffic alert, lane departure warning and intervention, and forward collision warning with automatic emergency braking.
