The car you want, the way you want.
There's always a lot to look forward to when you're shopping for a new Subaru vehicle. The features, the designs, and that new car smell alone are enough to pique the interest of most consumers. As far as we're concerned, the 2017 Subaru Forester checks all of the right boxes when it comes to what car shoppers are interested in.
The Subaru Forester is a compact SUV that has the practicality of a Subaru hatchback, the off-road capabilities of a crossover, and the responsive handling of a sedan. With standard all-wheel drive, the 2017 Subaru Forester has the sure-footedness to be driven in all kinds of weather as well.
2017 Subaru Forester Details
Like its predecessor, the 2016 Subaru Forester, the 2017 Subaru Forester is available in multiple trims. Most Subaru Forester trims have a continuously variable automatic transmission, but you can have a manual transmission in two of the trims, including the base model, the 2.5i, in which the manual transmission is standard. If your Subaru Forester has an automatic transmission, your SUV will also have the Subaru brand's X-Mode traction assist system with hill descent control.
If your vehicle has the automobile maker's EyeSight technology, your SUV will have Active Torque Vectoring, which is new for the Subaru Forester this year. The car maker's Eyesight technology is available as an option on all 2017 Subaru Forester trims except for the 2.5i.
As Subaru dealers, we like the visual changes the Subaru brand made to the 2017 Subaru Forester. We appreciate the SUV's new hexagonal grille and revised wheel designs, and we really like the look of the new LED headlights and tail lights. Everyone at our Subaru dealership in Indianapolis, IN thinks the tail lights on the Subaru Forester now look like the eyes of a hawk given their unique design. We also appreciate the acoustic windshield, additional soundproofing, thicker door glass, and the new door seals the Subaru brand used in the 2017 Subaru Forester to provide a quieter ride.
2017 Subaru Forester Safety and Special Features
One of our most popular Subaru models, the 2017 Subaru Forester has many of the safety and special features you'd expect a new Subaru automobile to have. Vehicles equipped with EyeSight technology will have lane-keeping assist, blind-spot detection, a rear cross-traffic alert, adaptive cruise control, a forward collision warning, and a lane-departure warning. The auto maker's EyeSight technology also includes an available camera system which spots obstacles in the road and applies the brakes to avoid a collision or reduce the force of impact.
Standard features on the base trim include Bluetooth connectivity, audio streaming, a rearview camera, and a 6.2-inch touchscreen. Available options vary by trim, but may include a power lift gate, perforated leather seats, a seven-inch touchscreen, and a 440-watt stereo system with eight speakers depending on the model you buy or lease from Tom Wood Subaru.
