There's a Lot to Love About the 2018 Subaru Forester near St Louis

The compact SUV class is filled with great models, which can make it tough to choose one, but we've highlighted one of our offers, the 2018 Subaru Forester, because we believe it to be one of the best options for many types of drivers. It's spacious, efficient, and adventure-ready, so you can bring along the gear you need to enjoy your destination and save money while exploring. We've briefly gone over what the Subaru Forester offers in several key areas, performance, design, features, and trim levels, so keep reading to find out more.

What can drivers expect from the 2018 Subaru Forester?


The 2018 Subaru Forester was designed to be ready and willing to help you explore outside the city, which is why it comes with a powertrain that is extremely capable and versatile.

  • The Subaru Forester comes standard with Subaru's renowned Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive system that promises control when the going gets tough.
  • Each Subaru Forester also comes with a Subaru BOXER engine, but there are some options. The 170-horsepower 2.5-liter engine is more efficient, an EPA-estimated 32 miles per gallon highway, than the 2.0-liter engine, but the smaller engine uses turbo charging to give drivers more power, 250 horsepower, for a more captivating drive.
  • Every 2.0-liter engine is paired with a continually variable transmission (CVT), but drivers who prefer the feel of a manual transmission can find a 6-speed manual with the 2.5-liter engine, which is also available with a CVT.


No matter how bumpy or long your journey is, the Subaru Forester keeps passengers comfortable thanks to a spacious cabin, and it's also capable of carrying lots of gear.

  • There's up to 108.3 cubic feet of passenger room in the Subaru Forester, so each row of passengers will find head and leg room for stretching out and shoulder room that prevents bumping elbows with other passengers.
  • The cargo area has 34.4 cubic feet of room, but if you need to fit larger items, the rear seats fold flat for up to 74.7 cubic feet of cargo room behind the front row.
  • The cargo area also houses convenient aspects like grocery bag and tie-down hooks to keep your items from rolling around, a underfloor storage area, which is great for jumper cables, and a power rear gate with height adjustment, which lets you remotely prep your car for loading.


We've already mentioned some of the smart features of the Subaru Forester, like the Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive and power rear liftgate, but they're just the tip of the iceberg. Driver's will also find:

  • A panoramic power moonroof, which lets in natural light and air, comes standard in every Subaru Forester but the base model.
  • A STARLINK™ multimedia system comes standard, but there are two sizes for the touchscreen display, 6.2- and 7-inch. This system is an easy way for drivers to choose the soundtrack for their drive and it comes with a navigation system in higher trim levels.
  • The EyeSight® Driver Assist technology includes features like pre-collision braking, adaptive cruise control, lane keep assist, and more to keep you aware of your immediate surroundings.
  • The LED steering responsive headlights swivel as you turn the wheel, so you can see more around them, and they helped the 2018 Subaru Forester to earn the 2018 Top Safety Pick award from the IIHS.

Trim Levels

The 2018 Subaru Forester starts at $22,795, but as you move up the trim levels you'll find more standard features and the option for other great features. The six trim levels are:

  • 2.5i
  • 2.5i Premium
  • 2.5i Limited
  • 2.5i Touring
  • 2.0XT Premium
  • 2.0XT Touring

As you may have guessed, the last two trims come with the more powerful engine, but other than that, they offer the same features as the 2.5-liter engine trims with the same name.
