The 2013 Subaru Forester

The Subaru Forester has won many awards since its unveiling in 1997 including the prestigious Motor Trend Sport/Utility of the Year Award in 2009 and Wheels Gold star cars award for best compact SUV 2008 when the current generation of Foresters was released. When you buy a Subaru you can rest easy knowing that you have made the right choice ecologically because every Subaru plant is a zero waste facility. 

There are many things that make the Forester great so lets take a look at why it is so special.The Forester has received much acclaim in part due to its sporty, car like handling which translates to being an easy vehicle to drive. Many people seem to forget they are driving an SUV. Many things contribute to the excellent handling characteristics of the Forester such as the Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive and Boxer engine. Just in case you want to bring along some of the bigger toys the Foresters has a 2,400Lb tow capacity.The next time you plan an adventure you can bring everything and everybody in the Subaru Forester. With seating for up to 5 and up to 68.3 cubic feet of storage nobody has to miss out. 

You can also feel good about yourself knowing that the Forester is an IIHS top safety pick.There are 6 trim levels to choose from so you can find the perfect Forester for you. Of course just like any Subaru you get Symmetrical AWD standard. For the drive-train you can choose from a 5-speed manual or the automatic and up to 224HP with the turbo charged Boxer. When you have power and grip like this there aren't many obstacles you cant over come.

Most notable is the amount of space you get inside. The front and rear seats will easily accommodate persons over 6' tall with ample head and leg room. Many manufacturers skimp out on back seat room but in the Forester you have over 38" in the back and 43" in the front. This is really great for those long road trips.

Speaking of long road trips there are plenty of features to make your trip pleasant. The power panoramic moon roof lets you embrace nature and the 6 speaker sound system will let you rock out when the urge strikes. Long gone are the days where arguments over climate control, the Forester offers dual zone climate control so everybody can be happy.
