2018 Subaru Forester Pricing and Features Revealed

Subaru awards

The 2018 Subaru Forester is coming to showrooms across Canada this month. The 2017 Subaru Forester was an award-winning model that set the bar high for the model, and the updated Forester looks to follow this path. In anticipation of the updated model hitting dealerships, Subaru Canada Inc. has released details of new features and MSRP pricing.

2017 Forester ranked high

At the Canadian International Auto Show in Toronto early this year a press conference was held to announce that the 2017 Subaru Forester took home the title of the Canadian Utility Vehicle of the Year award. The Forester was one of three finalists competing for the title. In 2016 the Forester was also named Canada’s Best New Small Utility Vehicle.

The 2017 model featured an unbeatable combination of all-road and all-weather capability, advanced safety features, and superior reliability. These features aided in securing the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety TOP SAFETY PICK for over a decade.

The 2018 Forester, which is coming to dealerships this month, builds further on the high-quality performance, dependability, and safety that the Subaru has come to be known for.

New features for 2018

Safety most definitely comes first in the 2018 Subaru Forester with more safety technology packed into the new model than ever before. All models come standard with improved child seat anchors, as well as updated seatbelt reminder warnings. These warnings ensure that passengers are kept safe at all times.

While safety is clearly a top concern of the 2018 Forester, the updated model has not missed out on new technology either. The 7-inch infotainment system with navigation on the Forester Limited models gains new Starlink apps, such as Yelp, Best Parking, and Glympse. Limited models that choose the optional EyeSight Package also feature a new High Beam Assist feature, which automatically detects vehicles oncoming and will adjust the headlights automatically as required.

The Forester 2.0XT models are equipped with a windshield wiper de-icer and the option of opting for the EyeSight Package. If you decide to opt-in for the EyeSight Package, the speed range of the Lane Keep Assist feature increases.
