The Subaru Forester May Be the Right SUV for You

At Village Subaru in Acton, we've seen just how popular the Subaru Forester is amongst Boston drivers. It makes total sense because this vehicle is capable, comfortable, safe, and practical. These are all qualities that so many people are looking for as they shop for vehicles. The Forester's affordability and standard all-wheel-drive help it stand out even more.


Customers get to pick from five Forester trims. They all have their advantages. You'll want to think carefully about which amenities are important for you and how budget may affect your decision. The base model is called the Forester, and the remaining trims are the Premium, Sport, Limited, and Touring. Some highlights are that the Premium has a panoramic moonroof and heated front seats. The Sport has LED fog lights and paddle shifters. The Limited has a power rear gate and leather seats, and the Touring has a premium sound system, navigation, and heated front and rear seats.

Coming soon is a new model called the Forester Wilderness. This trim is going to have greater ground clearance and will get to have all-terrain tires. Plus, it will have all sorts of special exterior features that will make it more durable, such as special skid plates and an enhanced suspension. Expect the Wilderness edition to have its unique style that may intrigue some of our customers.

What's Under the Hood?

Powering the Subaru Forester is a 2.5-liter engine. As you drive around Acton in any one of the Forester trims, you'll get to take advantage of 182 horsepower and 177 pound-feet of torque. The Lineartronic continually variable transmission makes for a smooth ride. If you ever need to haul cargo, keep in mind that this SUV has a towing capacity of 1,500 pounds.

It's worth mentioning again that symmetrical all-wheel drive is standard in the Forester. This system can keep you in control and moving forward safely if you ever have to deal with slippery conditions. Many of the Forester trims also have a program called X-MODE. When this is engaged, you can experience more enhanced traction. Wheelspin can be greatly reduced, even if you're dealing with rugged terrain.

Exterior Features

The Forester looks athletic and has a sturdy frame. It has a ground clearance of 8.7 inches and is a relatively tall vehicle. It can sit on either 17- or 18-inch wheels, and every trim has LED steering responsive headlights that can more effectively light up the roads than traditional headlights. Fog lights are included on most of the trims as well. Some of the available features on the Forester's exterior include side mirrors with integrated turn signals, heated side mirrors, and raised roof rails.

Inside the Cabin

Five people can comfortably fit inside one of these SUVs. There's plenty of space in the back, with there being 39.4 inches of rear-seat legroom. The cargo area behind the seats is generously sized, having a volume of about 30 cubic feet. Most trims have power-adjustable front seats, and some can have rear seatbacks that recline for comfort. Every trim has a rear seatback that has a 60/40 configuration for versatility. Lower trims start with cloth seats, with the top two trims having leather upholstery.

What appeals to many Natick customers is the technology that the Forester can have. Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, Bluetooth, and SiriusXM Satellite Radio are all standard. The first three trims have 6.5-inch touchscreens. If you get one of the top two trims, you'll have an eight-inch touchscreen, and you could have navigation, too. Integrated navigation is standard on the Touring and available on the Limited, and the same is true for the Harman Kardon speaker system. Almost all of the trims have Wi-Fi capability, which you and your passengers will appreciate if you like staying connected to the network while you travel.
