What makes the 2014 Subaru Forester stand out from competitive models is:
     
  • BEST VALUE of the group with the lowest MSRP.
  • Subaru's Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive is superior in performance at all speeds (see videos on this page) 
  • Subaru's unique boxer engine provides a low center of gravity for better handling 
  • TWO engine choices including a standard 2.5 liter engine and a turbo for the adventuresome crowd. The turbo with SI drive (found on the STI) is a true performance machine!
  • ONLY brand that offers a manual transmission option 
  • MORE headroom, legroom and shoulder room than the CR-V, RAV-4 and Rogue 
  • At 32 MPG HWY (non-turbo CVT), it offers the BEST fuel economy in the class 
  • ONLY vehicle in it's class to offer heated seats and wipers - a must-have for New England 
  • HIGHEST ground clearance (8.7"). This is significant to us New Englanders who travel dirt roads, need to be out before the snow plow arrives, or who seek adventures off-road. 
  • With rear seats that fold flat, the 2014 Forester has the amongst the highest USABLE cargo space.
