If you are searching for a compact SUV Crossover that will turn heads with all it “Cuties” then a new 2016 Subaru Forester should be on the top of your list. Now if you desire a safe, reliable and sophisticated family hauler that is well rounded in comfort, space and power, than do take a serious look at the tried and true Forester at Subaru of Plano. This handsome and veteran small SUV from Subaru comes standard with all-wheel drive that will take you and yours to places other little SUV’s don’t dare to tread.
There must be really solid good reasons Subaru owners come back later to adopt another Forester and give it a good home. Just recently, Consumer Reports gave the Subaru Forester 2.5i Premium the highest ratings in the small SUV category. That honor is well deserved as the Forester passed stringent testing, reliability scores, and government or insurance crash tests. They didn’t even remark on how stylish the Forester was as it didn’t really matter when it comes to a strong and confident family vehicle. Just talk to an owner of a Forester. They love it as everything comes together for a fun and safe drive and dependability is the most common word used.
Along with the sure fondness of the AWD, the new 2016 Forester delivers abundant cargo space, roomy and comfortable seating for the long haul to grandmas or a trip with your foursome to the golf course. The standard power plant with the 2.5i is no slouch as it comes with a strong 2.5-liter four cylinder that puts out 170 horses and 174 lb-ft of torque that will keep you ahead of traffic. A six-speed manual is standard with the 2.5i and 2.5i Premium models and a CVT automatic transmission is also available. All give excellent fuel economy in this all-wheel drive Forester. If you want some more zip in your drive, then the Subaru Forester 2.0XT is there with the potent 2.0-liter four banger that pushes out 250 hp and an asphalt grabbing 258 lb-ft of torque with the standard CVT. That combo will move you from zero to 60 mph in just a little over six seconds. Pretty quick for any crossover in this class and still gets 25mpg overall.
The Forester comes in six trims that start with the 2.5i to the stylish 2.5i Touring that comes with the peppy 2.5-liter four banger. The upscale and luxurious 2.0XT Premium and 2.0XT Touring have that awesome turbocharged 2.0-liter four cylinder. The Forester has a long and pleasing list of standard equipment from 17-inch wheels to a 6.2-inch touch screen with Subaru’s StarLink technology interfaces. The optional list is just as long from getting a sunroof to a rear roof spoiler.
All in all, this Forester is a great car to drive and own. The Auto Trader folks said, “The 2016 Subaru Forester may not be the most stylish or sophisticated compact SUV, but there is no denying its appeal. You can get your vehicle by visiting Subaru of Plano online at http://www.subaruofplano.com
