The Forester is one of the best-selling models in the Subaru lineup thanks to its combination of utility, safety, and versatility. The fourth-generation 2014 model promises to deliver even more after its release this spring of 2013; read on to see what it looks like before it hits your Manassas Subaru dealership:
The 2014 Forester represents the next step in evolutionary design with streamlined front and rear profiles and sculpted headlights. A longer wheelbase increases overall interior space for all five passengers, providing 41.7 inches of rear legroom. Cargo capacity is also increased to an abundant 74.7 cubic feet—among the best in the class.
Subaru is no stranger to efficient design, and the new Forester features notable gains in fuel economy thanks to an available Lineartronic® CVT transmission which replaces the old four-speed automatic. A new 2.5-liter four-cylinder puts out a respectable 170 horsepower while returning 32 mpg on the highway with a CVT transmission. For those who prefer a more engaging drive, an available turbocharged 2.0-liter engine produces a robust 250 horsepower while still returning 28 mpg on the highway.
The 2014 Subaru Forester features long list of standard features which includes Hill Descent Control, rear vision camera on higher trims, and X-Mode control for CVT-equipped models (a system which improves traction in low- and split-friction environments). An available Eyesight driving system provides a suite of active safety features such as adaptive cruise control, lane-departure warning, and pre-collision braking. Available upscale options include a power rear liftgate, keyless access and start, and touchscreen navigation.
