2018 Forester Family Car Trip Essentials

2018 forester

Getting all of the kids in the car and going on a trip – whether a long road trip or even sometimes a short trip – can seem overwhelming and not worth it. That isn’t how it should be. With the spacious 2018 Forester, you can pack the whole family in the car and with a few essential accessories to bring along with you, you’ll have a simple and successful trip.


Devices Are Key

If you have them, keeping handheld devices charged and at the ready to entertain. If you’re taking a long journey, load some apps or some movies onto a device that they can use for the trip. A personal device for each child with their own earphones can give them the space they might need, and something to occupy them.

It’s also important to keep the devices charged if it’s a long trip. Be sure to test any USB charging ports or adaptors in the car before the trip begins to ensure that they work. It also may be a good idea to get an adaptor to allow multiple USB ports to be charging at once.

Store Snacks With Easy Access

The 2018 Subaru Forester has best in class cargo space – which means ample space for a cooler to hold snacks and drinks for the drive. The cargo space in the trunk is impressive, so if the length of the trip is very long you can come equipped with a large cooler.

If you’re running out of space in the cargo area, or your trip is shorter, or even if you’d just prefer better and easier access to snacks, a smaller cooler or container can be placed below the seats. Placing it there won’t infringe on space, as the 2018 Forester offers generous interior space.

Keep Everyone Comfortable

Not everyone likes the car the same temperature, and Subaru knows that. That’s why the 2018 Subaru Forester offers Dual Zone Climate Control. Dual Zone Climate Control allows both the driver and the passenger to control the climate, allowing everyone to feel comfortable in the car.
