You can tell a lot about Subaru, but not that they’re lazy. This year, they have given important updates to vehicles such as Crosstrek, Legacy and Outback. The latest model of their range that received some adjustments is Subaru Forester 2018. To give you good news at first, they added the Black Edition package to the mix that brings more good stuff about style and technology.
Subaru Forester 2018 Technology
If you opt for Touring, decide what you like most is Subaru’s EyeSight Driver Assistance. This feature now comes as standard equipment. The named system also comes with high beam assist and reverse automatic braking. These two features are an excellent edition of Forester. In addition, the 2.0XT turbocharger engine on Touring trim comes with Active Couple Vectoring. This system affects the front wheels and improves the handling of the car while moving in the corners.
The current Forester looks like a box with a set of headlights. I hope this will not be the case with the Subaru Forester 2018. Although they have not released much on the car, it is clear what design system it will use. Not so long ago, Subaru released the XC Concept which, despite its name, could simply preview the future Forester. It has the correct proportions and it seems a bit too high and wide for an Impreza XV. If so, the Forester will become one of the best cars in its class by a large margin.
Subaru Forester 2018 Interior
The interior of the Subaru Forester 2018 remains the most important as previously. The only true upgrade compared to the regular car is on cars equipped with Black Edition which get a different upholstery. Outside, the changes are a little clearer. Here the car gets all-black accents such as mirror caps, grid surrounds and even headlights fit. As standard, the Black Edition model also comes with 18-inch blacked-out wheels and black stirrups that are a great touch. The result is a stealthy vehicle that certainly succeeds in impressing. The only real drawback remains the chrome insert near the grille which may or may not be removed during a subsequent revision of the car.
As before, the Subaru Forester 2018 will hit the market with two engines. It is also possible that after its initial release, we can see at least one additional engine added to the range. The base car should use a new FA-powered natural suction mill that should provide about 160 to 170 horsepower and about 150 lb.-ft. of torque. The sports version will use a turbo version of the same engine. This will be the same unit found in the WRX where it makes over 250 horsepower.
Subaru Forester 2018 Price and Release Date
Unfortunately, there are no clear indications when the new Forester will be launched. In our hypothesis, the release will not occur until the end of 2017. On the other hand, we can say little about the price. The base model is expected to cost about $ 21,000. You do not think this crossover will be so cheap. If you check the prices of other Subaru cars, you will change your mind.
