2014 Subaru Forester Review

Introducing the all-new 2014 Forester. Get the ultimate AWD without sacrificing MPG. An efficient Lineartronic Continuously Variable Transmission helps the Forester get up to 32 highway MPG while its Subaru Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive has been enhanced with the available new X-Mode that helps safely navigate through the steep the bad and the slippery. Spread out and enjoy the amenities. In the Forester materials are richer the backseat is roomier and the larger panoramic moonroof supplies a better view. It’s loaded with everything you need and more of what you want. As the only manufacturer with IIHS Top Safety Picks for all models three years running we decided to take the Forester even further. So we added even more safety features like EyeSight and another airbag for extra protection. The all-new 2014 Forester A whole lot to love.
