Subaru has a reputation for engineering quality vehicles that stand the test of time. The Subaru Forester is another jewel in a long line of excellent cars and SUVs. Take a look at some of the exciting new features of the 2017 Subaru Forester!
The Forester is a model for what responsible engineering looks like. For starters, the Forester is built in a zero-landfill plant, meaning that nothing used in its construction is contributing to a landfill somewhere. The Forester is also a leader in reduced admissions, exceeding even California’s strict emission standards and producing lower emissions than even some hybrid and alternative fuel vehicles.
The Forester is equipped with a patented BOXER engine that features a low center of gravity, offering superior response and handling and protecting the engine in the event of a collision.
Other features of the Forester are luxury and convenience features that help make driving a more enjoyable experience. These features include:
- A heated steering wheel for cold mornings
- Memory seating that remembers your preferred adjustment
- A powered moonroof that lets you feel the breeze
- High-end audio with 8 speakers and 576 watts of power
Like other new Subaru models, the 2017 Subaru Forester comes with Subaru Starlink Multimedia, which allows you instant access to a plethora of apps, including radio, news, traffic and weather reports, audiobooks, food, telephone and other multimedia content.
The 2017 Subaru Forester is equipped with state-of-the-art safety technology that helps keep drivers safe on the road. Subaru’s EyeSight technology monitors traffic, assists with cruise control and alerts you if you begin to sway out of your lane of traffic. It can even apply emergency breaks if it detects a collision is eminent.
Other advanced safety features include blind-spot detection that provides a visual indicator on your rear-view mirrors if a vehicle enters your blind spot, a rear-vision camera that lets you see behind the car in real time and breaks automatically if something enters your path, and a high-beam assist that automatically switches to low beam when an oncoming vehicle approaches, keeping your eyes focused on the road.
When it comes to recognition, the Subaru Forester can easily ride with the competition. It is an IIHS Top Safety Pick, having received the highest possible rating for front crash prevention. ALG reports that the 2017 Forest maintains its value longer than any other compact utility vehicle, and the Subaru Forester in general is in the top ten in the country for resale value from 2016.
With up to 32 MPG, plenty of creature comforts and state of the art safety technology, there are plenty of reasons to invest in a new Subaru Forester.
