Taking a Look at the New 2018 Subaru Forester

Taking a Look at the New 2018 Subaru Forester

Are you considering a new car? Here are some reasons why you should make the 2018 Subaru Forester your new vehicle.

It's an oversaturated market when it comes to choosing a vehicle and we all know it.

Which car company is manufacturing quality cars instead of just trying to make a buck? Which vehicles offer optimal safety? Which gives you the most bang for your buck? Which has all of the aforementioned features while maintaining good style and design?

Answer: the 2018 Subaru Forester, a car revered for its performance, safety, and dependability.

The new Subaru Forester has improved all of its safety features. Every single model includes child seat anchors and seatbelt reminder warnings.

The latest version even comes with EyeSight driver assist technology, Pre-Collision Throttle Management, and Pre-Collision Braking, which we'll cover later in this article.

But the qualities of the Forester don't end there. Here are some of the reasons why you should make the 2018 Subaru Forester your next vehicle.

It's Customizable

Yes, the 2018 Subaru Forester can be customized exactly how you want it to. It can come in your chosen trim and in a variety of colors.

Selecting the Black Edition package will give you unique driver-oriented features, a six-speed manual mode, and paddle shifters. It comes with an X-mode that turns your transmission over to electronic control. It also has Hill Descent Control which, as the name states, will allow for a smooth and controlled descent down any hill.

The grill on the Black Edition has wing motifs that are blacked out with a chrome frame. It also has black finish badges and mirrors along with leather bolsters on the black cloth interior.

When it comes to accessories, the 2018 Subaru Forester has some of the best options.

Wheels For Days on the 2018 Subaru Forester

The 2018 Subaru Forester comes with 18-inch alloy wheels. With this new larger-diameter wheel you will gain many benefits.�

Large-diameter wheels offer better handling at high speeds. You'll also experience a quieter ride with a softer feel. Lower-profile tires tend to be noisy and have a firmer ride.�

These 18-inch wheels are made from aluminum alloy, which makes the wheels lightweight. The lighter weight will increase your fuel-economy and increase your acceleration.�

Wheels produced from steel aren't made in many designs. Aluminum alloy wheels can be cast and worked in many different ways to give you your desired look.

A set of 18-inch aluminum alloy wheels will give your car the boost it needs in both appearance and performance.

LED Steering-Responsive Headlights

Driver visibility should be a high priority. The better you can see the road in front of you, the better you can drive. Steering-responsive headlights can help you see around corners by actually aiming the headlights in the direction you are turning.

Normal headlights just point straight ahead. With these LED steering-responsive headlights you'll be able to see further around a corner so you can react in advance to whatever may be coming your way.

The LED lights also increase your visibility at night. Have a car with normal headlights? If you find yourself driving during a blackout or a winter storm you might find them to be insufficient.

The 2018 Subaru Forester monitors your speed and rotates the lights according to the angle of the steering wheel. The headlights will swivel to match your projected direction.

With direction headlights that are mechanically linked to the steering wheel, you'll turn every corner with more confidence.�

The lights also activate automatically depending on sunlight, so you'll be set no matter what time of day you'll drive. The LEDs are also designed so the front headlights won't dazzle oncoming drivers.

These beams will show you exactly where you need to go and they won't put other drivers in a negative light (pun intended).

Upgraded Interior Materials

If you purchase the Black Edition, the interior will be made from dark, sophisticated leather with high gloss and chrome touches. The stitching�is also made in high contrast to the leather and offers a smart look.

The seats are made of black cloth and create a dramatic atmosphere. Sports bolsters provide extra support.

The shifter and steering wheel are wrapped in black leather. They also have silver contrast stitching that catches the eye.

Another plus: though it has a compact footprint, you'll still get a car with all of the interior cargo space you desire.

Heat Things Up

The steering wheel and memory seats can be heated, which allows you to keep your seats and wheel at optimal temperatures as the weather cools down. You'll have optimal comfort every single time you drive.�

The 10-way power driver's seat will allow you to lock your optimal position into your car's memory so you'll feel great every time you get in the car.�

Boxer Engine

The Boxer Engine in the 2018 Subaru Forester is named so because of the horizontal movement the pistons make. Like boxers throwing punches, the engine throws a similar punch via pistons.

The new model comes with a 2.5L four-cylinder engine. It also has a six-speed manual transmission and is continuously variable in terms of the automatic transmission.

The engine delivers a substantial amount of power without taking up every square inch under the hood. Paired with symmetrical all-wheel drive, the two together create an extremely safe and reliable platform for driving.

The engine and symmetrical technology help your vehicle stay perfectly aligned for optimal balance. The engine also lies flat, which helps the output flow right to the transmission. This creates a linear flow that helps reduce inefficiencies.

Reducing inefficiencies will result in a better fuel economy. Not only will it save you money on gas and get your more mileage, it will be better for the environment.

The engine also has a lower center of gravity, which will help your vehicle be more responsive while you drive. It'll also help eliminate unnecessary vibrations when you're in the car. The center punch opposite the pistons cancels out the extra vibrations that other engines create.

The Boxer Engine is a safe engine. The low center of gravity allows the engine to drop below your passengers instead of head towards them should a frontal accident occur.

Audio�

If you're a fan of hosting private concerts when you close the door to your vehicle, then the Forester is for you.�

The 2018 Subaru Forester features an incredible audio system. It has eight speakers and a 440W-equivalent amplifier from Harman Kardon. It even comes with a seven-inch high-resolution touch screen.�

The system creates a unique sound experience that will reach every listener in every seat of the car. The 80mm pods feature midrange speakers. The large woofer boosts the sound as does the amplifier. �

Harman Kardon uses GreenEdge technology that combines environmentally friendly designs with dramatic energy saving capabilities. The Forester is a great way to listen to music while saving your battery.

Price

Subaru has always been good at keeping its prices within a reasonable range, and the 2018�Subaru Forester is no exception. The trend of affordable and chic cars continue with this new vehicle.�

Even though the car comes at an affordable price, that doesn't mean it's behind in terms of options when it comes to design. It starts at $22,795, but with the various trims and customizable features available it can go as high as $33,090.�

This still leaves the 2018 Subaru Forester below the average new-car cost of $34,077.

Even at the lower end of the price scale, you'll still find yourself with a vehicle full of luxury features like a panoramic sunroof, EyeSight technology, and heated seats.�

It will also include the blacked-out wheels and black-accented fog lights. Even at a low price, you'll get the black badging, a great grill and a 2.5L four-cylinder engine. What more could you ask for in a great utility vehicle with luxury features that comes at such a low cost?�

While many cars with similar features can range from $30-40,000 in price, the 2018 Subaru Forester is a true deal.�

Safety

Let's further investigate the safety features of the 2018 Subaru Forester. The EyeSight driver-assist technology includes a set of dual color cameras that help you drive in the most intelligent of ways. It acts as another set of eyes and can monitor traffic for you.

The cameras are unobtrusively placed near the rearview mirror and scan the road for you. They can help you find blind spot troubles and unanticipated dangers. The system will increase your awareness and offer peace of mind whenever you drive.

Do you often carry children as your cargo when you drive? Then this feature will put you at ease. EyeSight technology can truly bring you safer roadways wherever you go.�

EyeSight can pair with the Pre-Collision Throttle Management and Pre-Collision Braking features so it can optimize cruise control and apply full braking force in emergency situations.

Pre-Collision Throttle Management detects objects in front of your car that you might be heading toward. It can actually reduce the power in your Forester's engine to minimize potential impact force. This means it can soften frontal impact and also potential damage to passengers.�

Pre-Collision Braking helps you avoid crashes by applying the breaks when perhaps you missed the opportunity to do so yourself. It has the ability to notice emergency situations even before you do, which can bring great comfort to any driver.

The 2018 Subaru Forester also comes with Sway Warning. This monitors your position on the road and will immediately alert you if you begin to stray out of your lane. This feature has saved lives.

While no one plans on driving when they are tired, sometimes the exhaustion catches up with you at unexpected times. The Sway Warning can help protect you from yourself should you accidentally doze off or make a mistake.

The overall safety features of the new forester are unlike any other SUV or utility vehicle. It offers you premium safety while you drive.

After all, the most important thing you carry in your car is you and your loved ones.

Maximum Appeal

The 2018 Subaru Forester is going to scream with appeal to anyone who wants a dynamic, safe, luxurious, and practical car. This vehicle is great for anyone looking for adventure on the road. It works just as well for anyone who needs to drop kids off at school on a daily basis or pick up groceries.

With incredible audio, upgraded interior, maximum safety, and an engine that will boost your car while saving you money, you can't go wrong.�
