The 2018 Subaru Forester has a good track record behind it. The Japanese brand’s SUV has been no less than 21 years old and in 2018 the Subaru Forester is updated to continue being one of the best-selling models by the Japanese manufacturer. New driving assistance and safety features, all-wheel drive and boxer engines are the calling cards of this renewed SUV.

With a medium size, a very practical family-type body and real capabilities as an SUV, the Subaru Forester remains that affable and perfect car for families with adventurous aspirations. Its four-wheel drive continues to be a guarantee of reliability in any situation, but now an unprecedented technological section has been added to its equipment.

Subaru EyeSight: safer than ever

The main update that the Subaru Forester receives is the inclusion of the Subaru EyeSight. This is a compendium of aids that are included as standard on gasoline engines and has two stereoscopic cameras in the exterior mirrors.

Thanks to them, the Forester boasts among its new capabilities pre-collision braking, pre-collision braking assistance, adaptive cruise control, involuntary lane departure warning, lane maintenance assistant, accelerator control, skid warning and front cross traffic warning. .

These capabilities have forced slight changes inside, forcing a redesign of the multifunction controls located to the right of the steering wheel and through which we will activate or deactivate these functions at will.

The interior also receives some minor updates with more modern materials, a color LCD screen with new graphics and an audio system with DAB+ radio with Subaru Starlink.

Within the versions with the highest finishes (Executive and Executive Plus) the new Forester also includes Rear Vehicle Detection with radars in the rear of the car to detect rear blind spots and Side View Monitor that shows the right blind spot with a camera from the rearview mirror on the central screen.

As a complement to safety, the Forester also has adaptive lighting and a water diffuser placed on the wiper arm that helps keep the EyeSight vision area clean.

The range of engines remains brief but sufficient, with a 2.0 gasoline engine with powers of 150 or 240 HP and only a 150 HP diesel. The price list with the commercial discounts applied (detailed in parentheses) are as follows:
