2018 Subaru Forester in LA

We know that new Subaru models have an image of being dog and family-friendly, but they really accommodate many lifestyles beyond that. This is a good fit whether you are interested in the affordable starting price of the Forester, the expansive cargo space for luggage, gear, and shopping bags, or the fact that the seating area will let your passengers stay comfortable on long rides. The latest safety features are available to you in the Forester and include the options that most brands make you pay extra for, which helps the Forester maintain its high marks from the country's best known safety institutions.

Just because this is a safe SUV it doesn't mean entertainment takes a back seat, because with premium convenience features, the Forester provides a high level of sophistication and modern appeal. From the outside you notice its bold shape, which manages to be roomy yet nimble without appearing dowdy. Its ground clearance allows for more options off the beaten path, while also being capable of standing out in a city environment. We know that in our area there isn't much use for an off-road vehicle, but when it comes to providing you with the opportunity to feel stylish while picking up the kids at school, hitting the mall, or having dinner with friends downtown, the Forester is there for City of Industry, Los Angeles, Fullerton, and West Covina, CA, customers.

Contact our staff here at Puente Hills Subaru for a test drive of the Forester and be sure to browse our inventory to see what other models stand out.

Subaru Forester vs. Honda CR-V

  • The first advantage that the Forester has over the CR-V is price. The Forester starts at $22,595 MSRP while the CR-V starts at $24,045, allowing you to save money and reinvest it into other things in your life.
  • The next advantage is capability. Every Forester model comes with standard Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive while the CR-V comes with standard front-wheel drive. You can get the CR-V equipped with all-wheel drive but it's going to cost you extra, further increasing the pricing gap between the two vehicles.
  • Whether it's space for your passengers or space for your cargo, with 108.3 cubic feet of passenger volume compared to 105.9 cubic feet of passenger volume in the CR-V, the Forester allows you to enjoy more space for both.

Subaru Forester vs. Jeep Cherokee

  • Price should always play a factor in your decision, especially when you can get more for less. The Forester starts at $22,595 while the Cherokee starts at $23,695, allowing you to save over $1,000 when you choose the Forester.
  • While Jeep brand vehicles are attributed to off-road prowess, it's the Forester that comes equipped with standard all-wheel drive, while the Cherokee comes equipped with standard front-wheel drive.
  • The new Cherokee offers slightly more horsepower than the Forester in base model trim, but the Forester comes out on top in the amount of torque that the engine produces. The Forester produces 174 pounds-feet of torque while the Cherokee produces 171 pounds-feet of torque, equating in more responsive acceleration.
  • The Forester is more spacious than the Cherokee, with more front head and legroom, as well as more rear headroom. It also offers more maximum cargo capacity than the Cherokee, with 74.7 cubic feet to take advantage of with the rear seats down, compared to 54.9 cubic feet of maximum storage space in the Cherokee.

Subaru Forester vs. Kia Niro

  • The Forester is slightly less expensive than the new Niro at starting MSRP price, starting at $22,595 compared to the $22,890 starting price of the new Niro.
  • The Niro falls quite short of the Forester in terms of power, producing just 104-horsepower from its 1.6-liter four-cylinder hybrid engine. The Forester, on the other hand, comes equipped with a 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine that produces 170-horsepower.
  • The Forester comes equipped with standard Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive in every model, allowing you to take on any weather condition and terrain with ease. The Niro, however, comes equipped with front-wheel drive and doesn't offer an all-wheel drive option.
  • The Forester offers more space for you and your passengers to stretch out, offering 108.3 cubic feet of passenger volume compared to the 97.1 cubic feet of passenger volume in the Niro.

Subaru Forester vs Toyota RAV4

  • One reason people love a Subaru model is that they offer all-wheel drive as a standard feature, but with the RAV4 you need to upgrade to a higher trim level.
  • Despite offering AWD the Forester is still less expensive than the RAV4, saving the average driver a couple thousand dollars.
  • If you desire the control of a manual transmission, the Forester is your best bet because the RAV4 doesn't have that option on the base trim.
  • Headroom, legroom, and shoulder room is more generous in the Forester versus the RAV4.
  • Passenger volume in the RAV4 falls a bit short of the Forester, which leaves your passengers a bit closer than they may want to be.
  • The RAV4 isn't as high up as the Forester, so ground clearance might not afford as much opportunity for exploration into the unknown.
