With models like 2018 Subaru Forester, you definitely won’t go wrong. This is one of those models that give you pretty much everything you need from a crossover. The original version of this model came in 1997. During these two decades of production, we have seen three generations of it. The current model is present since 2012. After four years of production, we have seen the first update last year. This refresh included several modifications. There are many new details outside, which definitely made this crossover look better. The company also introduced several new features inside, especially in terms of safety. So, if we consider all these recent changes, the 2018 Forester should not feature some bigger changes. We expect its arrival somewhere late in the year.
2018 Subaru Forester redesign
As we already mentioned, 2018 Subaru Forester will keep pretty much the same design as the current 2017 year model. When it comes to equipment, it will come in four trim levels – base, Premium, Limited, and Touring. The base model will come with standard features like 17-inch steel wheels, a height-adjustable driver seat, a 60/40-split folding rear seatback, Bluetooth, a driver information display, a rearview camera, a 6.2-inch touchscreen etc. The next one, Premium, will add standard features like rear privacy glass, a panoramic sunroof, a power driver seat, 7-inch touchscreen, voice commands, satellite radio etc. The next one is Limited, which adds things like a power liftgate, automatic headlights, an upgraded driver information display and leather upholstery. Finally, a top-range model will be the 2018 Subaru Forester Touring, with features like 18-inch wheels, dual-zone climate control, heated steering wheel, LED headlights etc.
2018 Subaru Forester engines
The 2018 Subaru Forester will come with two engines in the offer. The base model will feature a 2.5-liter engine, which is good for about 170 horsepower and come with either 6-speed manual transmission or CVT. The optional engine is a 2.0-liter turbo inline-four, which comes with much more power and better driving characteristics. The total output is 250 horsepower and 258 pound-feet of torque. When it comes to transmission, it will come with a CVT, which also features an SI-Drive system, which simulates gear changes.
2018 Subaru Forester release date and price
