This cycling event will take place on September 10th, 2016,and features a challenging and beautiful route throughout many Connecticut towns, with route options ranging from 10-100miles available for bicyclists of varied levels of experience.

75th Pearl Harbor Anniversary

This summer, Reynolds' Subaru is very excited to sponsor the Hawaii Five-0 5K run and walk in Old Lyme. This event, formerly known in past years as the Caroline's Miracle Foundation 5K,seeks to benefit the community around us through sponsorship and participation and will take place on July 30, 2016. The Lyme-Old Lyme High School band and chorus students will have the honor of performing in the 75th Anniversary of the bombing of Pearl Harbor, on December 7,2016 in Hawaii. LOLHS is the only school from Connecticut, as well as one of two schools in allot New England to have the privilege to partaken this momentous event! However, making the trip happen comes at a significant cost, so Friends of Music has arranged dynamic fundraisers and events like the Hawaii Five-0 5K to help mitigate the cost for student musicians to travel. We are thrilled to sponsor this event, and to help send our local musicians to Hawaii!

What's New for 2017

The ushering in of the 2017 model year means exciting changes for several of our models starting with a complete redesign of the Impreza (more details to come inthe Fall/Winter newsletter). The Impreza is due in showrooms sometime this fall. For the vehicles we have now the 2017 Forester received the most comprehensive updates.Subaru updated the exterior styling with a new grille,available LED headlights, new alloy wheels, and redesigned taillights. The interior of the vehicle is now a very nice place to be, boasting added sound deadening materials, an available Saddle Brown leather (in the touring), and a generous use of soft touch materials. As usual Subaru also updated the safety technology considerably, making it an even safer place to be. The Forester now offers features such as Blind Spot Monitoring and Rear Cross Traffic Alert,Steering Responsive Headlights, High Beam Assist, and a further updated version of Subaru's lauded Eyesight system.The Forester also now offers a feature called Reverse Automatic Braking, which can stop the vehicle before it reverses into another car. Finally, the Forester Touring now offers memory seats and a heated steering wheel; yes you read that right, a heated steering wheel.

The 2017 Outback has received a few updates as well. The Eyesight option package now comes with High Beam Assist on all trim levels and the Reverse Automatic Braking system in the Limited and Touring Trim Levels. 2017 also brings the addition of the Touring trim level for the2.5i and 3.6R Outback. The Touring Outback features an exclusive Java Brown interior leather, standard HID low beam headlights,standard Navigation, standard Eyesight System with all accompanying features, standard keyless access and start, and, you guessed it, standard Heated Steering Wheel. The Touring is available in 5 exterior colors and has numerous exterior styling details that set it apart from any Outback we have ever seen before; it is truly a step above.

The 2017 Legacy sees the introduction of the 2.5i Sport trim level as well as a few safety technology updates. The 2.5i Sport Legacy is based off of the premium trim level with the addition of unique 18" alloy wheels, standard keyless access and start, standard moon roof,optional Eyesight system, and a unique two tone grey interior with blue accent stitching, adding just a bit more smile per mile to an already great vehicle. As for the safety technology the optional Eyesight system now comes with High Beam Assist in all trim levels, and select trim levels also get the new Reverse Automatic Braking System.The 2.5i Limited with the optional Eyesight system now comes with HID low beam headlights to accompany the steering responsive fog lights and the High Beam Assist.

For another year Subaru says they will not be content to live with their previous success and strives to bring their customers safer, better, and more exciting vehicles. If the 2017 model updates show us anything, it is that Subaru will never succumb to mediocrity and embraces a commitment to continually bring their loyal customers the best vehicles possible. Feel free to stop in and see these and all the other exciting features the 2017 Subaru family has to offer!
