The popularity of crossover SUVs has been steadily increasing for several years now. These incredibly functional vehicles have won over many drivers with their large storage capacity without the bulkiness of a full size SUV. Many drivers in the Doylestown and Philadelphia areas have already made the switch. However, with crossover SUVs being such a highly competitive market, there's a wide selection to choose from, making choosing the right crossover SUV difficult.

Fortunately, we know one of the better options is the 2018 Subaru Forester. With its versatility, comfort and safety features, it can prove to be an exceptional crossover whether you like to adventure alone or with the whole family. Learn about the impressive features in the 2018 Subaru Forester, and discover how they could work for you in this detailed review. If you have any questions while reading, contact us here.


Crossovers are designed to make driving easier, and the Forester goes above and beyond. The vehicle features a power rear gate that can be controlled with your key fob, dashboard controls or controls on the gate. If you need to adjust the height of the gate, you can. If you take advantage of its maximum 74.7 cubic feet of cargo space, you want to make sure you can get where you're going.

The Forester has an impressive ground-clearing capability standing 8.7 inches off the ground. Don't worry about wet roads or other hazardous driving conditions as the X-MODE setting can help you conquer almost any challenge you'll find on the road. There's even a hill descent control function that helps you maintain control when going down steep surfaces.


Any modern car needs to have state of the art infotainment features in order to stay competitive. In the Forester, you can find the Subaru Starlink Multimedia system that comes standard on all trim levels. You'll have access to music, podcasts, audiobooks, maps and more. You can even connect your smartphone to the Forester with Android Auto or Apple CarPlay.

For your comfort, the Forester features premium seats with 10-way power adjustment. If two people are going to be regularly driving the Forester, it can keep track of both seat arrangements. Comfort settings can be switched between tracked profiles on the fly. You can also let some light into the cabin with the Forester's huge power panoramic sunroof which is standard pretty early on in trim levels.


Having a comfortable drive is nice, but the most important part of any vehicle is how safe it is. The Forester is a crossover, so it will have a higher rollover rating than a sedan, but it still manages to excel in safety. This crossover earned a 5 star overall safety rating from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.

Subaru's EyeSight technology is one of the best driver assistance technologies available. It's twin cameras can scan the environment around you to detect dangers. When you're using cruise control, the Forester will automatically slow down when you approach a vehicle. You can even set the distance you want to preserve. In emergency situations, the system can even apply the brakes for you. The Forester goes above and beyond to keep you safe.
