A crossover is the true Swiss Army knife of vehicles, combining the performance of a much smaller car with the off-road capability of an SUV and the storage of a station wagon. When you add in some Subaru DNA, you get the 2016 Subaru Forrester, a fun, safe, and reliable crossover SUV for both on- and off-road expeditions. At Byers Airport Subaru, we know this SUV can do it all, with enough space for a grocery run to New Albany and enough towing capacity for a trailer full of camping equipment. Visit us in person to see the new Subaru Forrester and more in our new Subaru inventory.
2016 Subaru Forester Details
When you drive the 2016 Subaru Forester, you're not only choosing one of the safest cars on the road, you're also buying one of the most efficient, with several trims producing a combined 27 mpg. Drivers have a choice between boxer engines, with a 2.0-liter turbocharged engine supplanting a standard 2.5-liter version that produces 170 horsepower. Per the Subaru naming convention, the 2.5-liter version is available on the 2.5i, 2.5i Premium, 2.5i Limited, and the 2.5i Touring trims, whereas the turbo version comes with the 2.0XT Premium and Touring trims. A continuously variable transmission is standard on all trims, and a manual transmission is available for those who prefer it. The 2016 Subaru Forester isn't short of luxury features either. The 2.5i Premium is available with a power moon roof and a 10-way power driver seat. The Limited version includes leather-trimmed upholstery and steering.
2016 Subaru Forester Safety and Special Features
Whether you're commuting to Columbus or headed off road, the 2016 Subaru Forester provides multiple layers of protection. All-wheel drive is a standout feature and available on every trim, and the chassis has been engineered to produce exceptional safety scores. As a result, the 2016 Subaru Forester has earned a 5-star overall safety rating from the NHSTA. The elevated driving position produces superior visibility, which is augmented by the standard rear-view camera. In order to preserve driver safety in stop-and-go traffic, the Subaru Forester now offers adaptive cruise control as an optional extra. The EyeSight® package uses a camera system to detect obstacles in the road ahead and can apply your brakes automatically to prevent a collision. Automatic braking is also a safety feature during off-road descents, wherein brakes are deployed to ensure your protection on sharp inclines. Lastly, drivers are able to perform some customization within the CVT. The SI-Drive system allows for programming the CVT to behave as though it were a six- or eight-speed manual transmission, with inputs linked to paddle controls on the steering wheel.
