The 2018 Subaru Forester: Not Limited To Only Asphalt

Unlike some of its pricier rivals, the 2018 Subaru Forester isn't afraid of going off road and exploring the great unknown. Starting at just $23,710, the new Forester comes with standard all-wheel drive (an expensive upgrade in many of its rivals) and 8.7-inches of ground clearance.

The 2018 Forester comes in 5 trims - 2.5i, 2.5i Premium, 2.5i Limited, 2.5i Touring and 2.0XT. New in 2018 is a Black Edition. This additional package is only available on the Premium trim. This blacked-out Subaru features a black exterior, black-painted 18-inch wheels and a black interior. One other change to the new Forester for 2018 includes standard EyeSight active safety gear (automatic emergency braking, adaptive cruise control and lane departure warning) in the Touring trim.

The new 2018 Forester from Rivertown Subaru is now available for purchase or lease in Columbus, GA.

Power To Pummel Any Terrain

Drivers in Columbus, LaGrange and the Auburn area will get a choice between 2 engines - the base 170-horsepower 4-cylinder and a 250-horsepower turbocharged 4-cylinder.

While the new Subaru Forester comes with standard all-wheel drive, that doesn't mean it's a gas guzzler. The base engine gets an EPA-estimated 26 mpg in the city and 32 mpg on the highway. The 250-horsepower engine isn't much thirstier, getting an EPA-estimated 23 mpg in the city and 27 mpg on the highway.
