Below, shoppers in Doylestown, Philadelphia and Warminster can learn a little more about what the interior of this vehicle has to offer in this 2018 Subaru Forester Interior review by the team at Fred Beans Subaru. Let's get started!

Cargo & Passenger Dimensions

While the 2018 Subaru Forester is on the compact end of the SUV spectrum, this vehicle has plenty to offer when it comes to passenger space with the following dimensions:


Total Passenger Space

108 cubic feet

Legroom (front / rear)

43 inches / 38 inches

Headroom (front / rear)

41.4 inches / 39.8 inches

Shoulder Room (front / rear)

57 inches / 56.5 inches

Hip Room (front / rear)

In addition to the five spacious seats you'll get in the Forester, you'll also have plenty of packing room for all of your stuff. With all five seats in use, you'll have 34.4 roomy cubic feet to fit in all of your things for your next trip.

However, you can utilize the standard 60/40-split flat-folding rear seats to more than double your cargo space. Fold one, two or all three rear seats down to access the Forester's 74.7 cubic feet of maximum cargo space. Upgrade these seat backs to include the available one-touch rear folding technology and packing becomes a breeze.

Advanced Entertainment

On top of having plenty of space for everyone and everything, the 2018 Subaru Forester boasts quite a few advanced entertainment features that you'll get to enjoy. Standard in this model is the SUBARU STARLINK™ Multimedia center. Right on its touchscreen display, you'll have access to all your music, phone calling capabilities, a variety of satellite radio stations and turn-by-turn navigation.

Sync your smartphone using Android Auto™ and Apple CarPlay™ to access all of your smartphone apps without taking your phone out of your pocket. Additionally, you'll be able to signal for help with this system in the event of an accident. Simply press the SOS button and help will be on the way.

Award-Winning Safety Features

With the 2018 Subaru Forester interior, you'll have a variety of advanced driver-assistive safety features to help you stay on track. You'll have a standard rear-vision camera that can be coupled with the available reverse automatic braking. When this feature detects something you might not have seen on your screen, it will automatically stop your vehicle.

The Forester also offers EyeSight® Driver Assist Technology. This feature is like a literal extra set of eyes that helps you scan the road ahead of you. It keeps tabs on traffic movement, optimizes cruise control and can even fully employ the brakes with Pre-Collision Braking to prevent an accident. 

Thanks to features like these, the Forester has received some of the highest safety ratings possible. It was awarded a 5-Star Overall Safety Rating by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration1 as well as a 2018 TOP SAFETY PICK from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety2.
