The New 2018 Subaru Forester's Performance for St. Louis County Drivers

  • 170-horsepower 2.5-liter BOXER four-cylinder engine
  • 250-horsepower 2.0-liter turbocharged BOXER engine (2.0XT models only)
  • Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive standard
  • X-MODE
  • LineartronicĀ® CVT
  • Up to 32 MPG

What makes the performance of the new 2018 Subaru Forester different from other compact SUVs in the Webster Groves and St. Louis areas? It's all about balance. If you know much about the Subaru brand, you know that their engineering is largely centered around an optimal balance: it's why the SUBARU BOXER engines Ā are designed to be horizontally even, and the Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive is, well, symmetrical.

This even balance helps the Subaru Forester to feel smooth and stabilized, and new performance upgrades and updates help to improve that support even more.

Powertrain figures do not change for 2018: the Forester 2.5i, 2.5i Premium, 2.5i Limited, and 2.5i Touring still offers a standard 4-cyl, and the 2018 Forester 2.0XT Premium and 2.0XT Touring still offer a powerful turbo-four engine. Minor updates to Subaru's X-MODE AWD functionality help the Forester to further improve traction on all kinds of roads, by utilizing Hill Descent Control, by working with the transmission to prevent lock-up, and to sensitize the standard traction control system.

For even more impressive performance traction and stability, Active Torque Vectoring is now standard on the 2018 Forester 2.0XT Touring.

The Subaru Forester, as a capable compact SUV in Missouri, is versatile enough to fit the lifestyles of a variety of drivers--with new features available in the well-equipped 2018 Forester, though, this flexible crossover is an even more tempting option. The base model remains an affordable and surprisingly loaded option, offering standard AWD, standard STARLINK touchscreen multimedia and infotainment, and standard safety features. Upper-level options like the Premium, Limited, and Touring trims bring the Forester to a whole new level of comfort and convenience for St. Louis drivers who want the most for their value.

You can equip your 2018 Forester with interior options like perforated leather seats for optimum comfort on hot or cool days; Welcome Lighting that cheerily illuminates the ground underneath your door; a power rear gate--with height memory--that makes loading and unloading cargo, dogs, and luggage easier than ever; and a full package of Subaru safety options that revolutionize the way we drive, and make every trip safer for you and for your passengers.
