Review: 2018 Subaru Forester

The 2018 Subaru Forester arrives at Waikem Subaru in Massillon, Ohio with a new Black Edition and advanced safety options at a lower trim level. With its great reputation for safety and family-friendly features, you still can't go wrong with the Forester. 
New Black Edition 
The 2018 Subaru Forester has style upgrades with its new Black Edition Package. The Black Edition Package features black-finished 18-inch alloy wheels and black accented trims on the fog lights, mirrors and badges. 
Inside the Black Edition Package includes exclusive black cloth upholstery with leather side bolsters, a black leather steering wheel and shift knob, and shifter paddles for the CVT transmission. 
Black Edition Foresters come in Crystal Black Silica, Dark Gray Metallic, Crystal White Pearl and Ice Silver Metallic exterior paint.
EyeSight on More Models
The Subaru EyeSight package is now standard on the Touring model when it was previously an add-on.  Subaru EyeSight is unquestionably the safest way to travel on the roads today. Cameras are mounted above the rearview mirror that monitor traffic and react to conditions even before you do.
If it senses danger or a collision, Subaru EyeSight will alert you through audible chimes and visible warning lights. Eyesight can also apply the brakes automatically, optimize your cruise control, and warn you if you sway out of your lane.
There’s also automatic reverse braking. If you're traveling in reverse and the Forester anticipates a collision, the vehicle will automatically engage the brakes and help prevent an accident.
Upgrade to the Subaru Starlink Safety and Security Connected Services to get automatic collision notifications. It will alert an advisor in the event of an emergency, plus you'll get enhanced roadside assistance.
With Starlink Safety Plus and Security, you'll also have the ability to lock or unlock your doors from your Smartphone.
All Wheel Drive
Of course every new 2018 Subaru Forester also comes standard with All Wheel Drive. Subaru's Symmetrical All Wheel Drive is the safest way travel through ice and snow, and when you commute through Northeast Ohio, it's easy to see why you would need a vehicle that travels safely in bad weather. 
Outdoor enthusiasts also love Subaru Foresters, because there is no vehicle better for a hiking, camping, or kayaking trip. The all wheel drive gets you to the camp site, lake or trail, and the spacious interior makes it easy to store all the belongings for your road trip. Plus the 8.7 inches of ground clearance makes it easy to get over rocks or up a hill. 
Great Technology
Every Subaru Forester comes standard with Bluetooth for hands-free calling. Plus every Subaru includes USB ports to keep your phone charged. There's also a backup camera on every new 2018 Subaru Forester. 
Subaru Foresters also come standard with STARLINK Multimedia. Connect your Smartphone to your Forester for seamless access to maps, phone calls, text messaging, climate controls and top apps like Pandora, Stitcher, iHeartRadio and aha. 
Other Options
Add great options like heated seats, leather, panoramic sunroof, power liftgate, and heated leather steering wheel as you climb the trim levels.
