2017 Subaru Forester Review

The Subaru Forester does so much more than get you where you want to go. With the capability to go anywhere at any time it’s rolling potential. And it’s built with Subaru’s well-known durability and safety so it’ll roll for a long long time. Choose from 6 models starting with the 2.5i and ending with the top-of-the-line 2.0XT Touring. The Forester is up for anything. Standard Subaru Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive and almost nine inches of ground clearance mean you can get through the rough stuff. And don’t be afraid to go there—98 percent of Subaru Foresters sold in the last 10 years are still on the road. There’s a lot to love inside too. An available panoramic moonroof lets everybody enjoy the sky and Subaru Starlink lets you pull things out of it like music maps texts and more. Safety features like Starlink Safety Plus and Security Plus Connected Services bring you additional peace of mind. Choose from a variety of colors and accessories to make your Forester yours. The Subaru Forester. Love the adventure!
Spending time in your Subaru Forester is so much more enjoyable thanks to a variety of innovative features. An available panoramic moonroof reveals the great outdoors. Standard Subaru Starlink gives you instant access to music apps and messages through the touchscreen. It also offers access to the available navigation. The Starlink screen also displays video from the standard Rear-Vision Camera helping you back up safely. The Subaru Forester. Love the adventure!
The Subaru Forester didn’t get to be an IIHS Top Safety Pick for eleven years in a row by scrimping on safety features. From available Pre-Collision Throttle Management to available Lane Departure and Sway Warning with Lane Keep Assist EyeSight Driver Assist Technology helps keep you and your Forester safe. And every Forester is equipped with a total of seven airbags and an array of sensors to deploy them should the unexpected happen. The Subaru Forester. Love the Safety!
There’s a sports car under the Subaru Forester’s hood. An available turbocharged 250-horsepower Subaru Boxer engine brings power and performance to your adventures. With standard Subaru Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive your Forester is capable of delivering you everywhere—at 32 miles per gallon on the highway. Subaru Intelligent Drive lets you choose from three performance modes customizing engine response with the push of a button. The Subaru Forester. Love the adventure!
