Those looking for a 2017 Subaru Forester for Sale in Southfield MI should read on to find out more about the vehicle's interior, exterior, mechanical, powertrain, and safety features.

Interior

When you're looking for a Forester for sale, you might find yourself adoring its one-of-a-kind, full-featured instrument display panel, which shows you everything from the vehicle's fuel economy history to its current oil temperature. The rest of the interior looks pretty standard and has intuitively-placed controls. The climate control system has three knobs that you might have to spend a few moments tinkering with, and there are controls conveniently placed on the steering wheel for audio volume, cruise control, the phone, and Subaru's SI-Drive system. Although the doors open out kind of wide, the Forester is relatively easy to get in and out of. Since pillars are situated far away from your and your passengers' heads, head space is not an issue, and you will find that even taller individuals will be comfortable with the generous amount of leg room available. Also, with the rear-quarter roof pillars being situated the way they are, you won't have a problem with rear-view visibility. The rearview camera adds an additional safety factor in case you are having trouble seeing around tall items in the cargo area. Frontal visibility is also quite good. Overall, while the interior doesn't have the most upscale look, its features and materials are durable and relatively problem-free. The cabin is pretty quiet, even at full acceleration, so you can expect a fairly smooth and easy ride.

Exterior

The Subaru Forester's exterior lives up to all of the expectations Subaru drivers have for this well-established crossover. Both the front and rear fascias have received updates as have the lights, but the exterior largely remains its usual sporty and solid self. You can take your choice of seven different body side molding kit and door edge guard colors (ice silver metallic, crystal white pearl, quartz blue pearl, crystal black silica, dark gray metallic, Venetian red, and jasmine green). Also, exterior features include a wheel lock kit for the alloy wheels, wheel arch moldings, a sports grille, and a trailer hitch. If you're looking for a vehicle that can tow quite a bit of weight, know that the Forester can tow up to 1,500 pounds.

Mechanical

The Forester has a lot of great mechanical features that make it worthwhile to consider buying. For example, it has X-MODE on the 2.5i Limited, 2.5i Touring, and 2.0XT Premium Trims. X-MODE works to optimize your engine output, enhances how the vehicle engages its all-wheel drive capabilities, and keeps wheelspin to a minimum, allowing you to feel secure while driving this vehicle in all kinds of conditions. As most Michiganders know, driving in Michigan can be hazardous during the winter, so you might appreciate the traction and stability you receive from the Forester. The Forester also features Vehicle Dynamics Control, Hill Descent Control, and a Traction Control System. The chassis is also quite solid, as it features an electric power-assisted rack-and-pinion steering (EPAS) system, 4-wheel disc brakes, 4-wheel independent suspension, Brake Assist, and a brake override system to keep your vehicle stable and safe while driving and braking.

Powertrain

The 2017 Subaru Forester has a solidly built base powertrain with its 2.5-L 4-cylinder Subaru Boxer engine with a double overhead cam (DOHC). The Forester gets 170 hp and 174 pounds-feet of torque. All-wheel drive comes standard on each trim, and the powertrain is rounded out by a continuous variable-speed automatic transmission. If you opt for the 2.0-L turbocharged engine on the Subaru Forester XT trim, you can get the best acceleration for a vehicle in this class, as this powerful engine gets the Forester from 0 to 60 in roughly 6.3 seconds. This engine produces an impressive 250 hp, making it the best trim to look at when you're shopping around for a Forester for sale at a location serving Southfield Michigan. Additionally, if you prefer a manual transmission, you can get a fully synchronized 6-speed manual transmission with Incline Start Assist on the 2.5 and 2.5i Premium trims.

Safety

Living year-round in Michigan means having to encounter rough roads during winter months, so when you're searching for Subaru Forester specials and Foresters for sale, it's important to focus on the safety features the Forester has to offer. One of the best features is that all-wheel drive comes standard on each trim, so you don't have to worry about spending more on an upgrade just to get AWD. You can get the optional EyeSight Driver Assist Technology on the 2.5i Premium, Limited, and Touring trims, which features a pre-collision braking system, lane departure and sway warning, lane keep assist, and adaptive cruise control. A rear-vision camera, daytime running lights (DRL), and a tire pressure monitoring system come standard on all trims. There are plenty of passive safety features as well, including the LATCH system, which has lower anchors and tethers for children riding in the passenger seats.
