Vehicle Overview

Debuting in 1997, the Subaru Forester was one of the very first compact crossover vehicles: with a focus on customers who want an affordable ride that does not compromise on interior space, nimble handling, fuel efficiency, and off-road capability. Tack on the standard all-wheel drive, and it's little wonder why the Forester has remained in the top half of the increasingly crowded segment. Ostensibly at the tail end of the fourth production cycle with the 2018 model year, the Forester receives reverse automatic braking as part of the EyeSight driver-assistance technology available on upper-level models. However, the trims-which have the "2.5i" prefix due to the displacement of the engine they share-remained untouched. And that includes the 2.5i Premium, which is one of the more affordable Forester models, while retaining the basic strengths of the Subaru Forester.

2018 Subaru Forester 2.5i Premium's Exterior

At the front, the 2.5i Premium has multi-reflector halogen headlights, which include daytime running lights for increased conspicuity. Enhancing lighting ability are options such as fog lights (for more penetrating illumination) and steering responsive lamps (for more accurate and effective illumination). On the front doors are body-color side mirrors, and the black-finished raised rails on the roof provide cargo carrying space. A rear spoiler on the tailgate aides with aerodynamic performance. The 2.5i Premium rides on black machined-finish 17-inch 6-spoke aluminum wheels, although you have the choice of getting larger, 18-inch ones.

2018 Subaru Forester 2.5i Premium's Mechanical/Powertrain

The 2018 Subaru Forester 2.5i Premium is powered by a horizontally-opposed 2.5-inch 4-cylinder engine, which produces 170 horsepower at 5,800 RPM and 174 lb-ft of torque at 4,100 RPM. Hooked to the engine is a 6-speed manual transmission, which comes with incline start assist to prevent the vehicle from rolling back when you shift from park to drive on a steep hill. The Forester Premium trim uses an all-wheel drive system for enhanced traction ability, especially when driving on slippery surfaces. Bumps on the road are absorbed by the strut-type front suspension and double-wishbone rear suspension.

For protection in the event of a collision, the Premium has dual front impact airbags, a driver's knee airbag, dual front seat-mounted side-impact airbags, and a pair of roof-mounted side curtain airbags that covers both rows. Disc brakes are installed on all wheels for making stopping distances as short as possible. Accompanying the disc brakes are an anti-lock braking system for making sure that the wheels don't lock up when suddenly pressing the brake pedal, electronic brake-force distribution for properly meting out stopping power to the wheels, brake assist for additional stopping force, and brake override when both the brake pedal and accelerator pedal are pressed. Also present is the STARLINK Safety and Security suite of services that includes automatic collision notification, roadside assistance, stolen vehicle recovery, and SOS emergency assistance. Other standard safety features include electronic stability control for keeping you in charge of your driving destination, traction control to maximize tire contact with the road surface, and a rear vision camera for monitoring your rear surroundings when moving in reverse. Optional on the Premium are EyeSight technology, high beam assist, hill descent control, and blind spot detection with rear cross-traffic alert.
