What Separates the New 2018 Subaru Forester From the Competition?


There's a reason that you see so many Subaru Forester models on the roads around the greater Norwood, MA area. The Forester was designed to provide drivers with the utmost versatility and performance in any driving situation, whether it's the unpredictable Massachusetts winters, the hectic morning commute or a weekend adventure away from the city and into the most rural areas. With spacious versatility for both passengers and cargo alike, the Forester allows you to get the whole family where they need to go, and with state of the art technology throughout, everyone can stay connected and relaxed on the road. To demonstrate how well the new 2018 Forester fits in here in the greater Norwood and Quincy, MA area, we're going to compare it to the new 2018 Honda CR-V and the 2018 Toyota RAV4, allowing you to see side by side how the new Forester sets the bar for the rest of the competition.
