The compact crossover was intended for climbing and driving over rough terrains, and it’s produced since 1997. This five-door crossover provides the ideal combination of rich equipment, efficient power plants, and handsome design. Fuji Heavy Industries leads in care about passengers and luggage, so they give roof rack and additional space that can amount around 68.5 cubic feet. The fourth generation of the model is awesome because it borrows some elements from siblings and maintains very good characteristics. 2018 Subaru Forester is probably the handiest crawl down model in a segment which ensures stability on the roads and maneuverability in small spaces. Either way, if you make the decision to use the vehicle in similar conditions, new Forester presents the right choice.

The design has changed from default boxy look in a little bit more curved shape and sculpted panels give better aerodynamic possibilities. The front fascia has a hexagonal chrome grille with the emblem in the middle; while large LED headlights in the corners illuminate the road. Big alloy wheels in combination with seasonal tires provide good grip and control of the vehicle. Could you imagine mountain ride without rocks, mud, and other obstacles? Glass surfaces are now darker for better protection of children from sun rays. Windshield has also photocells designed to keep the driver unaffected from sun rays so he can have a direct view of the road. The rear end is handsome with the new spoiler, tail lamps and new lift up door. In this way, you can very easy access the trunk and store what you need.

2018 Subaru Forester possesses two small power plants with low fuel consumption. Engineers indicate that that is the point of this kind of vehicle. The basic option is 2.5-liter four-cylinder boxer with 170 horsepower and 174 lb-ft of torque. It comes with CVT shift and distributes power to all four wheels.
