If your ideal car is one that can handle off-road trails just as well as it can handle on-road daily driving challenges, the Subaru Forester is worth checking into. To find out what the latest Subaru Forester has to offer your driving experience, continue reading.
Horizontally Opposed Boxer Engine
For decades, Subaru’s engineering team has refined and improved its world-renowned Boxer engine. This flat engine offers a number of benefits, such as a lower center of gravity thanks to the engine’s horizontally-opposed design, and a lower weight owing to the engine’s ability to be completely balanced without needing the extra components found in V-engines and inline engines. In the brand-new Subaru Forester, you can choose between one of two different Boxer engines: a 170-horsepower 2.5L and a 224-horsepower turbocharged 2.5L.
Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive
Another feature that makes Subarus unique is their intelligent all-wheel drive program called Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive. This system, which comes standard on the new Subaru Forester, sends power to all four wheels and will re-route power to certain wheels depending on whether slippage is detected. The system is able to react in a matter of milliseconds, effectively allowing your Subaru to enjoy traction on virtually any road surface and during the harshest weather conditions.
Designed to provide a wealth of interior space, the Subaru Forester is one of the most comfortable and practical cars in its segment. Rear legroom is exception on the 2013 Forester. And with maximum cargo capacity at over 68 cubic feet when the rear seats are folded, it’s easy to compare the utility of a Subaru Forester with the utility offered by a small SUV.
Balanced Ride Quality
Subaru put a great deal of thought into the design of the Subaru Forester’s suspension. The result is a ride quality that strikes the ideal balance between sporty, off-road capable, and comfortable. This makes the Forester a great car to have whether you’re exploring off the beaten path, driving around town, or curving through mountain roads.
