How Does the Design of the New 2018 Subaru Forester Compare to the 2018 Mazda CX-3?

Since these two SUV models are classified differently, you'll notice a significant difference in size. After all, one of the most important reasons for upgrading to a new SUV is so you may enjoy the additional space. That's exactly what you'll find in a new 2018 Subaru Forester which invites up to five occupants to sit comfortably with up to 108.3 cubic feet of passenger space. Meanwhile, the 2018 Mazda CX-3 only offers 87.6 cubic feet of passenger space, which is about what we would expect from a compact car. Behind the rear seats of the new Subaru Forester, you'll still have a generous 34.4 cubic feet of interior cargo space to bring what you need for the journey ahead. Behind the rear seats of the Mazda CX-3, you'll get just 12.4 cubic feet of cargo room, which is less than you'll find in the trunk of most small cars. This is just the beginning of how the new 2018 Subaru Forester is designed to provide greater value than the Mazda CX-3.

How Does the Performance of the New 2018 Subaru Forester Compare to the 2018 Mazda CX-3?

The performance advantages that come with a new 2018 Subaru Forester over the Mazda CX-3 are far reaching. While the new Subaru Forester enters the market with a healthy 170 horsepower and 174 lb/ft of torque, the new Mazda CX-3 is only available with an engine that offers 146 horsepower and 146 lb/ft of torque. Since this is the only engine that comes in the Mazda CX-3, the available turbocharged engine that pumps out 250 horsepower in the Subaru Forester is clearly in a different league. What's more, you'll appreciate the exceptional traction of Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive that comes with every Subaru Forester. You could spend more to upgrade a new Mazda CX-3 with their add-on version of all-wheel drive, but you'll still be stuck with a compact car disguised as an SUV. What's more, you'd be paying about the same as a new Subaru Forester.

How Does the Safety of the New 2018 Subaru Forester Compare to the 2018 Mazda CX-3?

The roads throughout the Pacific Northwest are no place to be caught in a vehicle that isn't as safe as it can possibly be. We're pleased to find that the new 2018 Subaru Forester and the new 2018 Mazda CX-3 are among the safer vehicles on the road, and they each performed well through independent crash and safety testing. However, the 2018 Mazda CX-3 suffered an intrusion of the rear door panel when a side impact was simulated, which caused a high lower-spine acceleration in the test dummy. This is an indication of possible injury that the new Subaru Forester doesn't have. This is your safety and that of your loved ones we're talking about here, so there's no reason to take chances when the award-winning safety of a Subaru is available.

Why is Subaru Among the Most Popular Automotive Brands Throughout the Pacific Northwest?

It's hard to go anywhere in the Olympia, WA area without seeing Subaru vehicles on the road, and there are a lot of good reasons for this. Certainly, the world-renowned traction of Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive that comes standard with all but one Subaru model is great for icy and otherwise slick driving conditions, but that's just the beginning. The flat BOXER® engine found under the hood of every Subaru provides a level of efficient power and low center-of-gravity handling that isn't available with other brands. What's more, Subaru continues to earn prestigious industry recognition for retaining value, low cost to own, and safety. In fact, the available EyeSight® driver assist technology is like having a second set of eyes on the road to help you avoid unpleasantness on your journey.
