How the Subaru Forester Outperforms the Compact-Crossover Competition

You may be familiar with the traditional compact crossover, but if you have yet to experience the genuine sportiness of the Subaru Forester, you're going to love getting acquainted with this adventure-ready vehicle. Keep reading for details on how the Forester powers ahead of the crossover competition:


Most compact crossovers have a mere sporty style, but the Forester is genuinely athletic. It's not just a beefed-up sedan. This is a vehicle that is comfortable in both on-pavement and off-road driving situations. Subaru Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive is standard, which is an asset on Rutland, Middlebury, Bennington and Manchester, VT area roads, as well as in Glens Falls NY and Lebanon, NH. This all-weather confidence is enhanced by the Forester's impressive fuel economy, generous road clearance, and an available turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder worth 250 horsepower and 258 pound-feet of torque. Subaru X Mode is also an option, which makes for optimum traction on slippery surfaces, even at low speeds.

An Ideal Family Vehicle

The 2017 Forester has a huge cargo hold, adding up to 34.4 cubic feet behind the rear seats and a whopping 74.7 cubes with the rear seatbacks folded. Thanks to its tall frame, the Forester also offers spacious seating. Even with all of this practicality, the Forester still prioritizes comfort, offering infotainment connectivity with a 6.2-inch touchscreen with smartphone app integration as standard equipment. Safety is also a key component of a family vehicle, and the award-winning construction of the Forester always offers peace of mind. The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety picks the Forester model year after model year for its superior crashworthiness and newfound crash avoidance technologies.

What's new for the 2017 Forester

For 2017, the Forester welcomes a slew of new advanced safety features as well as fresh styling. The award-winning Subaru EyeSight® suite of driver assist technologies now offers lane-keep assist as well as blind-spot and rear cross-traffic alerts. Also newly available is auto high beams, adaptive LED headlights, and reverse automatic braking. The latter works just like forward collision mitigation except it watches for obstacles in the rear. Styling updates touch on the many exterior elements, including the headlights, taillights, front end, and grille.
