New Subaru Forester Is an Excellent Value

The new Subaru Forester is an excellent choice for drivers in Chicago who are looking for something that is practical and ready for adventure. This crossover is roomy, ready for any weather, and comes with the latest in safety technology. It has a luxurious, well-designed interior and the reliability that you expect from a Subaru. Let's take a look.

Model Overview

The new Forester seats up to five passengers. It has plenty of room for both passengers and cargo. The Forester was all-new for 2019, and the changes for 2020 were relatively minor. One of the improvements is that the adaptive cruise control now has a lane-centering feature. The tire-pressure monitor now shows the individual pressure for each tire, so that you know which one is low. There is also a reminder to check the back seat before exiting the vehicle. Subaru also added the all-weather package as standard on higher trim levels.

Performance

One thing that drivers love about the Forester is its capability. It comes with a symmetrical all-wheel drive that gives you control on icy and wet roads. All Forester trims are equipped with the same 2.5-liter 4-cylinder SUBARU BOXER engine. They also come with a vehicle dynamics control system that provides power to the wheel that needs it most. This gives the Forester a stable feel, and it allows you to navigate rough road conditions with confidence. Subaru Intelligent Drive optimizes the powertrain for the driving conditions. This engine is powerful and fuel-efficient. It averages 33 mpg highway and 26 mpg city. You can also choose a tow package that allows you to haul up to 1,500 pounds.

Design

The Forester has the features that crossover drivers want the most, including a spacious cabin, superior handling on all road surfaces, and a smooth, relaxed ride. The Forester offers a bit extra ground clearance that gives it a bit of off-road capability. You can choose from a range of trims, including the Base, Premium, Sport, Limited, and Touring editions. If you want a mix of value and features, the Premium model strikes a balance. You can also choose between a sportier suspension and appearance, or you can opt for luxury amenities. The Forester gives you choices to suit your needs.

Technology

Subaru knows that you like to enjoy your ride. That is why they packed the Forester with plenty of features to keep you connected and keep you entertained. The center console touchscreen has big buttons that are easy to operate. You can enjoy Apple CarPlay and Android Auto integration, which allows you to bring your favorite playlists along.

Safety

Subaru is known for its attention to safety. The Forester comes with several safety packages, including EyeSight Driver Assist Technology, DriverFocus Distraction Mitigation System, All-Around Awareness, and Subaru StarLink. The EyeSight Driver Assist feature is a favorite. It includes adaptive cruise control that will keep you in the center of the lane, pre-collision braking, and lane departure prevention.

The Subaru will take some of the stress out of driving in stop-and-go traffic by operating a bit of the steering, braking, and accelerator. This can help with driver fatigue. You can also choose a Blind-Spot Detection System and Rear Cross-Traffic Alert. The Forester also comes with a few other conveniences that will help keep you safe like an auto-dimming mirror and automatic headlamps.

Regardless of the trim that suits you best, the Subaru Forester has a lot to offer. It is time to stop by Napleton's Palatine Subaru in Arlington Heights and test drive one today. Feel free to complete an online finance application as well to get started today.
