Exterior and Performance

The 2.5 L BOXER engine in the 2018 Subaru Forester produces 170 peak horsepower and 174 pound-feet of torque. Featuring an induction system with natural aspiration, this engine is paired with a fully synchronized manual transmission system that offers six gears. Powered by a turbocharger, the 2.0 L BOXER engine yields 250 hp and 258 lb-ft of torque. The patented Lineartronic CVT (Continually Variable Transmission) system is compatible with both engines. This dynamic transmission works with the Symmetrical AWD to optimize traction for normal trips and off-road adventures. Wheel engagement is also enhanced by the X-MODE, which is very useful on slippery and rough roads. The Incline Start Assist and Hill Descent Control give the Forester excellent gradient-climbing capabilities. Handling is also improved by the Active Torque Vectoring that adjusts several mechanical parameters. Unintentional acceleration will be deterred by the Brake Override System that senses the slightest depressions in the gas and brake pedals.

The driver's seat in the 2018 Subaru Forester has a 10-way power design with a memory function. If you want heating for the front seats, then select the optional All-Weather package.

Illuminated by a soft glow, the electroluminescent instrument gauges add function and appeal to the cabin.

The 2018 Forester Pre-Collision Braking delivers maximum braking force when a frontal crash is imminent. By keeping a safe distance to another vehicle that's in front, the Adaptive Cruise Control also lowers the potential for trouble on the road. When you accidentally cross over the boundaries of lane markings, the Lane Departure and Sway Warning will turn on. Steering adjustments might also be initiated by the Lane Keep Assist function. When the Forester rolls backwards and an obstacle is in the way, the Reverse Automatic Braking will come on. The Rear Cross Traffic Alert is also designed to prevent a crash with vehicles that are behind you. This Subaru crossover SUV has a driver's knee air bag, rollover sensor and side curtain air bags that ensure optimum protection during an accident.
