Your 2018 Subaru Forester Awaits

The 2018 Subaru Forester is a great choice for anyone in Boston, Belmont, Cambridge, Natick, Newton, or Wakefield looking to buy or lease a new compact crossover SUV. All Subaru vehicles offer drivers a compelling suite of features, including AWD, at affordable prices. But the 2018 Forester stands out - even when compared to last year's model.

Major Change for 2018: Eyesight® Comes Standard

Subaru has added several important changes for the 2018 model year. Perhaps the most significant update is a safety-related one. Forester buyers choosing the Touring trim now get Subaru's Eyesight® active-safety package as a standard feature.

Subaru's Eyesight® Active-Safety Package includes:

  • Eyesight® Cameras that monitor blind spots, traffic, and other issues.
  • Adaptive Cruise Control
  • Pre-Collision Braking
  • Lane Sway and Departure Warning
  • Pre-Collision Throttle Management


    Other Changes for 2018

    In addition to Eyesight® being standard on Touring models, Subaru made other changes for 2018. Automatic high-beam headlights and reverse automatic braking are included on models equipped with Eyesight®. That means, effectively, that all Touring models will get these features, as will any vehicle on which buyers choose to pay extra for a package that includes Eyesight®. 2.0XT Touring Models also get torque-vectoring as a standard feature.

    Subaru has joined the black appearance package bandwagon, adding a Black Edition Package to the Forester 2.5i Premium trim. Vehicles with this package will choose from a range of colors including crystal black silica, dark gray metallic, crystal white pearl, or ice silver metallic. They'll get 18-inch black-finished wheels, and black accent trim to mirrors, fog lights, and more.

    The Black Edition Package includes LED headlamps that respond to the driver's movements. This feature has typically been reserved for Foresters in the Touring or Limited trims. Lastly, the 2.5i Premium models optioned with this package get black cloth upholstery with faux leather bolsters and a leather-wrapped steering wheel and shift knob, among other things.

    New Features, Same Standard

    Despite the welcome additions and changes Subaru has added to the Forester for 2018, one thing is certain. Drivers will appreciate that many aspects of the Forester are the same as before. AWD is still included in all trim models as a standard feature. Subaru enthusiasts and those new to the Subaru brand alike will also appreciate Subaru's trademark Boxer engine, which delivers fantastic fuel efficiency along with a lower center of gravity and better stability. Despite the lower center of gravity, this Subaru boasts better ground clearance than some of its competitors, making it ideal for off-road fun and navigating New England winters.
