Trim Levels (Exterior)

If you're unsure which trim suits your lifestyle best, the Forester offers up to six choices: the 2.5i, 2.5i Premium, 2.5i Limited, 2.5i Touring, 2.0XT Premium, and 2.0XT Touring. These models are available in several bold and shiny colors, including Quartz Blue Pearl, Venetian Red Pearl, and Ice Silver Metallic, making it easy to pick the one that's right for you.

A notable feature of this compact SUV is the power rear gate, which makes hauling around groceries, bulky equipment, and other personal belongings simple and convenient with the touch of a button. You can also opt for a higher trim to enjoy some natural sunlight and fresh air with an available power tilt/sliding panoramic moonroof.

Engine (Power)

When you hit the road in a brand-new Forester, you'll be amazed at how much power this SUV has. The lower four trims feature a 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine that gets 26 miles per gallon in the city and 32 on the highway, while the 2.0XT Premium and 2.0XT Touring come with a 2.0-liter four-cylinder direct-injection turbocharged unit. This engine sees up to 23 miles per gallon in the city and 27 on the highway.


There's no shortage of performance perks in the 2018 Forester. This vehicle features a standard all-wheel drive powertrain that delivers superior traction on uneven road surfaces, a sport-tuned suspension for enhanced handling, and steering wheel paddle shifters for easy gear control. You'll also find tough terrains an easy match thanks to this Subaru's 8.7 inches of ground clearance.


With a whopping 108.3 cubic feet of passenger volume, the all-new Forester can accommodate a full vehicle without worry. Other standard and available amenities include cloth or leather seating surfaces, a 10-way adjustable power driver's seat, 8-speaker Harman Kardon audio system, SiriusXM satellite radio, and smartphone integration.

Plus, you can upgrade to a higher trim for additional features. For instance, the 2.5i Premium comes with an automatic climate control system, while the 2.5i Touring adds on dual-zone climate control as well as a heated steering wheel. Meanwhile, the 2.5i Limited bumps up the luxury even further with leather-trimmed accents on the upholstery and steering wheel.

Safety Features

The 2018 Forester is an excellent investment for families and drivers of all ages. It has received top safety ratings from both the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety and the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.

This Subaru helps you drive with peace of mind thanks to roadside assistance, stolen vehicle recovery, blind spot detection, and reverse automatic braking technology. Additionally, the EyeSight driver-assist feature makes it easy to keep up with the flow of traffic and avoid drifting out of your lane. It can even apply the brakes to avoid an accident on the road.
