Subaru Forester

The fourth generation Subaru featured

  • Continuously Variable Transmission (CVT) and decreased towing capacity. Maximum towing capacity was reduced to 1,500 pounds across all trim lines. XT (turbo) variants use a high-torque CVT with steering wheel paddle shifter controls.
  • Revised, sport-oriented suspension, wheels (18-inch) and chassis bracing for XT (turbo) variant, providing flatter cornering in turns and better handling overall with little impact on ride.
  • Increased fuel economy, up to 32 mpg highway (EPA rated)
  • 1.4 inches longer, 0.6 inches wider, 1 inch longer wheelbase
  • Increased interior volume: rear seat legroom is 41.7 inches and rear cargo volume (with seats folded down) is 74.7 cubic feet.[22]
  • New option on higher end only models is "X-MODE" AWD control system, which was developed for the driving on uneven or slippery road condition. Engine, Transmission and VDC are controlled cooperatively.[23][24]
  • New option on top of the line 2.5i and 2.0XT Touring models only: Eyesight Driver Assist System
