The Forester is one of the best vehicles which Subaru has to offer, primarily because of the fact that it can be safely driven in any and every type of weather. Including a huge array of options, some incredible features, a standard all wheel drive and an optional turbo engine, the Forester is our most favorite family car of the year.
The detailed designing of the Subaru Forester makes it stand out beautifully. The styling might appear to be a bit dull to some of you because of its boxy look. But inside that box, Subaru has engineered a smart and family perfect car. Thin roof pillars, large windows, a huge cargo space and excellent visibility all around, the Subaru Forester 2014 is an easy and safe to drive car. And not to forget the technological features on board such as the EyeSight collision avoidance system and active cruise control. Factor in the cameras, and the Forester becomes a car that watches the way, assists you in staying in the lane and offers a cruise control system which you can use in heavy traffic; the control system limits the speed, but then it's supposed to be used in a traffic jam only.
The Subaru Forester is available with two different engines: a 4 cylinder engine with 170 HP or a turbocharged engine with 250 HP. Both engines feature horizontal cylinders, which according to Subaru, lower the center of gravity, making handling easier.
The most basic version of the Subaru is the Forester 2.5 I, which features a manual transmission mode. Should you pay an extra amount, you can also get the CVT mode. The 2.5i Premium Subaru has pretty much the same features as the basic version, except for the aluminum alloy wheels. If you opt for a CVT 2.5i Premium, you also get to enjoy a navigation system, power moonroof and winter prep package. Other available versions are 2.5 I Limited, 2.5i Touring, 2.0XT Premium and 2.0XT Touring.
The biggest strength of the Subaru Forester is probably the outward visibility, which is by far the best, in all family cars. There is a backup camera on board too, but the visibility is so good that you would hardly ever need to use it. Unlike other cars, there are no backup sensors or blind spot detection technology, but trust us; you are not going to need them.
The Subaru Forster does have some shortcomings such as the noise when you are driving on the highway and the small radio buttons. But whatever the drawbacks, they are not that significant and get overshadowed when you consider the pros.
