It's been a long and often challenging past 12 months, but a new summer is almost and here, and with it, perhaps an opportunity to finally take a break and enjoy a change of scenery. Whether it be camping in nearby Cedarville State Forest or embarking on a little (or big) road trip, the right transportation can help you make the most of whatever adventures you have planned.

If you're in the market for a vehicle with comfortable accommodations and versatile utility, one without imposing space requirements and not limited to roads commonly traveled, the Subaru Forester could be just what you're looking for. Here's a quick look at some of the attributes that make Forester an excellent road companion for journeys of all sizes.

  • Convenient Size: When not out expeditioning, it's nice to have a vehicle that integrates seamlessly into your daily routine. And ass a compact crossover, Forester offers plenty of utility while still navigating crowded streets and parking lots with ease.

  • Comfort and Versatility: The Subaru Forester roomy accommodations for up to five passengers, with its cushioned, supportive seats delivering comfort that stands up to the miles. With all seats in use, Forester retains 28.9 cubic feet for your luggage or groceries (31 cu-ft for base models), and provides up to 69.2 cubic feet with the rear seats folded down(base: 74:3). And for your gear that doesn't fit inside, raised roof rails are available on Forester's base trim and standard on all others.

  • Capability: Under the hood, Forester finds motivation in a smooth and responsive 2.5-liter BOXER® engine (182 hp, 176 lb-ft of torque) with a Lineartronic® CVT. And for journeys that take you off the beaten path, you'll appreciate Forester's standard Symmetrical All-Wheel-Drive system and 8.7 inches of ground clearance. And by stepping up one trim from base, you'll get the additional sure-footedness of X-MODE® traction and hill-descent control, with Sport, Limited, and Touring models adding an extra setting for Deep Snow/Mud.

  • Subaru EyeSight® Driver Aids: Forester also comes standard with a suite of advanced driver-assistance technologies to enhance driving awareness, like Pre-Collision warning and braking, Lane Departure and Sway Warning, and Lane-Keep Assist. EyeSight® can even help mitigate the stress and fatigue of a tedious commute or long road trim with Advanced Adaptive Cruise Control and Lane Centering. Additional driving aids are available for Premium models and standard on higher levels, including Blind-Spot Detection, Lane Change Assist, and Rear Cross-Traffic Alert.
