Before You Leave:

Before you begin the drive, take a moment to test out the features.

  • Voice-Activated GPS Navigation: Subaru STARLINK is available on the 2.5i Premium, 2.5i Limited, 2.5i Touring and 2.9XT Touring 2016 Forester trim levels. Test it out with an easy address in the Twin Cities first, than try an address farther outside city limits. See how well the system works.

  • Radio: Check out the sound system by tuning to your favorite radio station. It’s important to test the radio before you leave. During your drive you will want the radio off or at a low volume so you can listen to the engine and wind resistance.

  • Seating: Take time to adjust the driver’s seat to your comfort. Your comfort is essential to the success of your test drive.

  • Don’t forget to check simple features like windshield wipers, blinkers, windows, the parking brake and more.

During The Drive:

You are ready to hit the road. Research can only tell you so much about a vehicle. It’s important to get behind the wheel to see if it fits your driving needs. Here are a few features you should keep in mind during your drive:

  • Rearview camera: As you back out of the parking space, check out the rear-vision camera.

  • Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive: If you have never driven a Subaru before, notice the handling and traction that Subaru’s Symmetrical AWD system offers.

  • Leather Trim: If you are test driving an upper-trim level 2016 Forester model, check out the leather-wrapped steering wheel and upholstery. These features are standard on the 2.5i Touring, 2.0XT Touring and 2.5i Limited.

After The Test Drive:

After you return to our dealership, take a moment to test out exterior features like the available power rear gate and the keyless entry system with an answer-back electronic chirp.
