Take the all-new 2018 Subaru Forester out for a spin today at Subaru Montréal near Laval and see what more it has to offer than its competitor, the 2017 Ford Escape! Whether because of its powerful Subaru BOXER engines, its all-wheel-drive that has been well-known for many years, or its tough look, the Forester will appeal to buyers in search of a roomy family vehicle with a stellar reputation. If you’re on the North Shore or the West Island, you’ll only need a single test drive to show you why it was chosen Canadian Utility Vehicle of the Year in 2017 by the Automobile Journalists Association of Canada!

1.More cargo space.

Unlike the Ford Escape, which only provides between 962 and 1925 litres of cargo space, the Forester lets you store between 974 and 2115 litres of luggage, depending on whether or not the back seat is folded down. You’ll also enjoy a 680 kg (1500 lbs) towing capacity if you use a trailer with brakes.

2.More powerful engines.

Depending on the model of Forester you choose, you can either get a 2.0 L 4-cylinder Subaru BOXER engine that delivers 170 horsepower or a 2.5 litre Subaru BOXER that produces 250. That’s better than the engines offered by the 2017 Ford Escape, which only deliver 168, 179 or 245 horsepower, depending on the engine.

3.Advanced security features.

With its EyeSight system, the 2018 Forester has put safety first! It has 2 cameras that monitor the road ahead to better identify potential dangers and obstacles. This system also offers pre-crash braking, lane-keep alert and adaptive cruise control, to name only a few. This system is the reason previous generations of Forester received the IIHS’s highest possible security rating!

Add to that fog lights and directional headlamps, automatic reverse braking system, backup camera, and superior visibility thanks to its large windshield. Does the Ford Escape offer all that?
