With winter closing in, it’s time to start thinking about buying a car that handles well in snowy conditions. It won’t be long before that nasty snow storm hits, and you want to be prepared. If you’re deciding on which car to buy, take a good look at the 2016 Subaru Forester. It’s loaded with safety features, has a ton of cargo space, and is economical, all essential qualities of a great winter car.
When the roads are snowy or icy, your chances of having an accident go up. One of the best ways to avoid having an accident is all wheel drive. That’s a standard feature on the Forester, whereas many other vehicles offer it as an expensive add-on.
Subaru didn’t stop with AWD. In order to ensure the safety of everyone, the Forester comes loaded with airbags. There’s the driver and front-passenger airbags, the driver’s knee airbag, the frontal airbag system, the seat-mounted front side-impact airbags, and side curtain airbags for both front and rear passengers. If you want more, the Forester has it. Four-wheel ABS, brake assist, traction control, electronic stability control, and a rear camera all come standard on all Foresters. That’s a lot of safety for your dollar.
If you’re driving around in winter, you’re probably going to want some cargo space for firewood, dogs, sleds, and a ton of groceries. The 2016 Subaru Forester has got you covered with 34.4 cubic feet of cargo space. On top of that, you can carry your whole family safely with you as the Forester has room for a driver and four passengers. Need to haul bags of salt or sand? That’s not a problem for the Forester.
Winter is an expensive time of year, so it’s great that the Forester is so economical. The standard manual transmission gets 29 MPG on the highway and 22 in the city. Upgrade to the CVT, and the numbers jump up to 32 highway and 24 city. On top of that, the Forester starts at $22,395. That is quite the deal.
