The Subaru Forester Is Roomier, Safer, and More Powerful


If you're looking for a roomy compact SUV that has standard all-wheel drive and lots of helpful safety features, you should give the Subaru Forester a try. Fully redesigned the new Forester has sculpted higher wheel arches, new LED lights, three new exterior colors, and a new trim level - Sport. It also has increased horsepower and better fuel economy, and people in the Groton and New London, CT areas can shop from a wide array of Subaru Forester models at Valenti Subaru.


You'll have plenty of zip to get around town in the new Subaru Forester. Its four-cylinder engine was given a power boost and up to 182 horsepower from the previous 170. An even bigger difference is in the Forester's handling. It has a composed feel, with responsive steering, firm brakes, and reduced body roll. The suspension is smooth over dips and bumps in the road, giving you a comfortable ride on most surfaces. Symmetrical all-wheel drive is still standard for optimum traction for most any road or weather condition. Frugal drivers in the Narragansett, RI and Groton, CT areas will like that the new Forester gets even better gas mileage - with an EPA-estimated 26 mpg in the city and 33 mpg on the highway.


You and your family will have more room to stretch out in the Subaru Forester. Subaru made it bigger, with an extra 1.4 inches of rear legroom along with more room for your head, shoulders and hips. The new Forester also gained cargo space, so you now have up to 76.1 cubic feet of room to put your groceries or outdoor gear. The rear gate is now 5.3 inches wider, and an available power liftgate makes it easier to load. The Forester's cabin is nicer overall, with higher-quality materials. Cloth upholstery is standard, but leather is available. Standard features include the StarLink infotainment system, Bluetooth, a four-speaker stereo, a 6.5-inch touch screen, and Apple CarPlay and Android Auto smartphone integration. Optional features include a moonroof, proximity keyless entry, push-button start, a nine-speaker Harman Kardon audio system, a Wi-Fi hot spot, and a navigation system.
