The 2018 Subaru Forester is an Edgy New Compact SUV Near Boston

"Edgy"? That's not a word you'll usually hear to describe the Subaru Forester, which is usually best known for carting around kids in Belmont or Cambridge, being decorated in mud by four-legged furballs outside of, or hauling skiers and snowboarders up mountains in the winter. And the new 2018 Subaru Forester--available now near Natick, Newton, and Wakefield--will still be known for all of those things--but with a new set of features, options, and styling choices that might make all of those activities a bit more bold.

The 2018 Forester has a lot of carryover styles and features from the last model-year, and that's not likely to change until we see a new generation of Forester SUVs built on the new global platform. However, the recipe that Subaru does bring to the table is just as satisfying as it's ever been, with some fun new twists.

No more teasing: the biggest change that we'll be seeing for the new 2018 Subaru Forester on the streets of Boston is the addition of a stylish new Forester Black Edition Package. As the name suggests, its tall-dark-and-mysterious design includes black wing accents on the grille, black exterior finishes (mirrors, etc.), black alloy wheels, and black bezels around the fog lights. This exclusive package option gives the 2018 Forester Subaru's legendary All-Weather Package (heated front seats, heated exterior mirrors, and windshield wiper de-icer), a chrome finish, and silver stitching in the interior.

It's a well-rounded package that looks as nice as it feels--and it's an affordable add-on to your favorite new 2018 Subaru Forester.

Other new additions for the 2018 Forester is new X-MODE tech on the standard Symmetrical All-Wheel-Drive system, new standard Active Torque Vectoring on the 2.0XT Touring model, standard EyeSight Driver Assist Technology on all Touring models, and High Beam Assist and Reverse Automatic Braking on all Eyesight-equipped Forester SUVs.

Check out the new 2018 Forester for yourself today at Cityside Subaru, serving the greater Boston area.
