2017 Subaru Forester Review: Body Design

 Keeping up with both style and substance, Subaru sticks with their if-it-ain't-broke-don't-fix-it mentality by only changing a few things with the new Subaru Forester.

The new hexagonal grille with its sleek accents make this vehicle stylish even from the front. The body-colored bumper gives the vehicle a complete and flawless look. The base-level Subaru Forester comes with 17-inch aluminum alloy wheels, whereas the 2.0XT trim levels feature 18-inch high-contrast black and machined finished wheel designs.

Subaru Forester Review: Interior Entertainment Features

The STARLINK™ Multimedia System is back in full force with an upgraded screen size, from last year's 6.2-inch touchscreen to the 7-inch featured in the 2017 Subaru Forester. This media hub allows you to access features such as the radio and CD player, which can read MP3 files. The vehicle is outfitted with six speakers to deliver audio enjoyment.

 The newest Forester, like last year's model, features Bluetooth® technology that allows you to make or receive phone calls from the road while keeping your hands on the wheel. This feature can also be used to stream music directly from your smartphone's library or music apps.

Subaru Forester Engine Performance

The 2017 Subaru Forester features the uniquely designed 2.5-liter four-cylinder Subaru BOXER® engine. This flat-laying engine gets the vehicle to reach 170 horsepower, although opting for the turbocharged intercooled engine sees an increase to 250 horsepower.

The optional Lineartronic® CVT (continuously variable transmission) excels as far as fuel efficiency, with an EPA-estimated 26/32 city/highway mpg-an increase from the 2016 CVT-equipped Subaru Forester that got 24/32 city/highway mpg.

A new addition to the 2017 Forester's performance is Active Torque Vectoring. Working with the Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive, it shows superior handling and helps to reduce understeering while cornering, giving you complete control on the road.
