2018 Subaru Forester Is Here at Irvine Subaru in Orange County, CA

 The 2018 Subaru Forester is an SUV drivers dream in California. With so many options and features to please just about any driver, there's something for everyone in the Forester. From the roomy interior to the fuel economy, the Forester is a well-rounded compact SUV that's surprisingly affordable.

Performance & Safety

Two engine options on the Forester include a 2.5L four-cylinder and a 2.0L turbocharged four-cylinder engine. The 2.5L offers 152-horspower, while the 2.0L offers an impressive 250-horsepower. Either engine option offers the performance and fuel efficiency that you need from your next compact SUV in Orange County. Symmetrical all-wheel drive is included standard on every Forester Subaru makes, and you don't have to live somewhere with snow to enjoy the benefits of all-wheel drive.

The advanced safety system known as EyeSight, is available on most Forester trim levels, and with it, you get the driver assistance features you need for the roads of Anaheim. Lane keep assist, adaptive cruise control, pre-collision braking and more ensure that your Forester can help keep you and your loved one's safe.

Interior Features & Comfort

The Subaru Forester is no stranger to comforts, and this crossover just keeps getting better. With 108 cubic feet of passenger volume, there's nothing compact about the interior of the Forester. 74.7 cubic feet of cargo storage opens up when you fold the rear 60/40 split seats down flat. That's class-leading storage space. Many others in the class can't match that volume.

You'll love the standard 6.5-inch touchscreen infotainment display for its crisp graphics, responsive interface and intuitive design. Have all your controls at your fingertips thanks to steering wheel buttons and a driver-oriented dashboard design. A back-up camera comes standard on all Forester models, so you'll be able to back out of tight spaces and park with ease. 

Subaru Forester's Trim levels

  • The base level, Subaru Forester 2.5i , comes standard with a manual transmission, but an automatic continuously variable transmission (CVT) is available if you prefer. You'll get things like a back-up camera displayed on the 6.5" StarLink infotainment touchscreen, keyless entry and more.
  • The next level up, Subaru Forester 2.5i Premium, gives you the features of the base level, plus things like a panoramic moonroof, reclining rear seats, manual or automatic transmission and much more. Plus, EyeSight is also available to add to this trim.
  • The Subaru Forester 2.5i Limited gives you additional features like leather upholstery, heated front seats and more. Optional add-ons include EyeSight, Harman Kardon audio system, navigation and a power liftgate.
  • The top level of the 2.5i trims is the Subaru Forester 2.5i Touring. This top tier option gives you pretty much everything you could want from your Subaru Forester, like power folding rear seats, EyeSight Safety, heated steering wheel and more.
  • The Subaru Forester 2.0XT Premium and Subaru Forester 2.0XT Touring, are the only two trim levels that hold the 2.0L turbocharged engine. These include all the options of the 2.5i Premium and Touring levels, they just hold a different engine.
