The 2017 Subaru Forester is the Crossover For Drivers in Chico and the Greater Redding, Sacramento, and Yuba City Area Interested in a Vehicle with Perfectly Balanced Proportions


In an over-saturated market-like the crossover segment-it can be difficult trying to determine which compact sport-utility vehicle is right for you. One model that has been there from the beginning, is the Subaru Forrester; a crossover that inspires drivers' everyday drive with its versatility, value, excellent visibility, spacious interior and ample cargo space.


While the Forrester dates back to the late 90's, Subaru recently rolled-out the 2017 model year and it delivers an updated exterior, torque vectoring, quieter interior, and major EyeSight improvements. Let's start with the facelift, which includes a revised front and rear fascia, a new grille with horizontal bars, and LED lights for the headlights and taillamps. While the exterior updates are relatively subtle, it showcases a more contemporary look, without straying away from the Subaru brand.


Now that we have covered the exterior updates, drivers should know that the 2017 Forester now features Subaru's Active Torque Vectoring system on the 2.0-liter turbo, which was previously only available on the WRX and WRX STI. When it comes to EyeSight, the active safety system has also received some significant improvements. While it still comprises adaptive cruise control, forward-collision warning and lane-departure warning, the new model adds lane-keeping assist, blind-spot detection and rear cross-traffic alerts for improved driving safety.


Inside, the Forrester boasts a number of amenities including available audio systems, a multi-function color display, hands-free phone connectivity and more. New on the interior this year is an updated steering wheel, added soundproofing and an optional leather package on select models.
