A Forester in your favorite color and styling is waiting for your own close up and personal attention.  Indeed, the Subaru Forester offers one of the lowest starting prices, a very competitive list of standard and available features and the rarity of standard All-Wheel-Drive.  These make the Forester a triple threat in the competitive compact SUV line up because it delivers more bang for your buck.  The Subaru’s standard AWD deserves its very own shout-out as this system delivers more confidence with your driving experiences in nasty weather.  Your next step is an enjoyable test drive in this Forester.

The first positive observation is the Forester’s handsome and practical styling in its wide and assertive stance.  You and yours will also appreciate the wide doors to make for easy access and exit.  The seats are comfy and sturdy front and rear with a high-riding position that gives both the front and rear passengers a great view of the road; lots of head and leg room for even those tall folks.  The seats come standard with a smooth cloth upholstery and are also available in leather, as well as power adjustable driver’s seats and much more.

The Forester’s cargo capacity is among the highest in its class with over 34 cubic feet behind the rear seats and nearly 75 cubic feet with the rear seats folded.  Lots of room for those trips to the big box stores. Also, inside the Forester’s controls are simple, logical and easy to learn without the help of your teenager. On your test drive, you will appreciate how the handling is so sporty and how well the Forester glides into those country curves for a quiet and smooth experience.  What may be efficiently powering you down the road is the standard perky 2.5-liter flat-4 that delivers 170 lively horses.  If you desire more zip in your trips, then also test drive the more powerful 2.0-liter Turbo with 250 aggressive horses that love to get you quickly off the line.  The base models have the standard 6-speed manual or the available smooth Continuous Variable Transmission; the Turbo comes with the CVT transmission.

Everything just comes together with the Subaru Forester especially in the fun to drive area.  Find out for yourself why this Forester won the prestigious Consumer Reports award with a short drive to Five Star Subaru of Grapevine which is another trustworthy organization.  One is waiting for anyone’s budget and styling.
