A Look at the 2013 Subaru Forester, Why you'll want to take it Off-Roading in Virginia

Last updated 5 years ago

If you need a reliable car that can keep up with your off-road adventures in Manassas, check out the comfortable 2013 Subaru Forester. Here are the features of the new Subaru Forester that give it an edge in the crossover segment.  And, find out why you’ll want to take it off-roading in Virginia:

Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive

The Subaru Forester’s all-wheel drive system is one of the best systems in the world because it is designed to handle a loss of traction before it even happens. Instead of a four-wheel drive system, which engages all four wheels only after a loss of traction is detected, Subaru’s Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive continually sends a pre-set amount of torque to each wheel. When the Subaru Forester’s onboard computer perceives traction loss, torque is re-routed to the wheels that have the best traction. And because the system is lightweight and simple, it is less likely to break down and doesn’t need as much maintenance as other systems.

BOXER Engine

A 170-horsepower BOXER engine comes standard in the 2013 Subaru Forester, which allows the car to earn 21 mpg in the city and 27 on the highway. Because of this engine’s unique, horizontally opposed design, it is able to balance itself without needing additional components—the same cannot be said about V-type and inline engines. If you would like a more powerful BOXER and the distinction of driving one of the fastest small crossovers in the country, get the 224-horsepower turbocharged engine for your Subaru Forester.

Comfortable, Roomy Cabin

The Subaru Forester features a surprisingly massive interior given its exterior size. To expand comfort, Subaru comes with supportive seats, power accessories, Bluetooth connectivity, a height-adjustable driver seat, and cruise control. Behind the rear seats you’ll get 33.5 cubic feet, while folding the rear seats gets you a total of 68.3 cubic feet of cargo space.
