The number of Subaru models has greatly expanded over the years. And while they never lost that iconic look that distinctly identified it as a Subaru vehicle, we feel at O’Brien Subaru of Ft. Myers that the look and feel of our favorite automobiles have only gotten better with time.

We understand how many options you have when it’s time to look for that new vehicle. And with so many, you can probably afford to be a bit picky with looks, safety, features, etc. So we thought we would highlight some great features that make the 2016 Subaru Forester a fantastic choice.


To start, the 2016 Subaru Forester is one of two crossover vehicles currently offered that gives you a choice of manual transmission. It may not sound like the biggest piece of news, but drivers who have grown up loving their manual transmission will find a familiar comfort in the Forester.


The 2016 Subaru Forester has a high ground clearance for those adventurous trips off-road to your favorite campsite. But it also feels like a car. With responsive steering and a softer suspension, you won’t feel like you’re lugging around in a big hunky SUV.


We also love how much of your surroundings you can see from the driver’s seat. Not only does it help with safety, but it adds to the Subaru motif of exploring and enjoying what’s around you. Large side mirrors, and an expansive windshield and rear windows, combined with a taller seating position, give you plenty of visibility.


To top it all off, the 2016 Subaru Forester earned the highly sought after and respected IIHS Top Safety Pick+ award for safety scoring high or top marks across the board. And even with all of these great features, there’s plenty more to love in the Forester. Head on down to 2850 Colonial Blvd today to test drive one for yourself!
