23 City / 30 Highway
, Automotive Editor -

The all-wheel drive five-passenger Forester has added space to the equation without sacrificing fuel economy. Efficiency is, in fact, a strong talking point for Forester customers — particularly with the 2.5i naturally aspirated engine model equipped with CVT that achieves 24 mpg city and 32 mpg highway. It’s a true compact utility vehicle making the Forester a serious contender in its segment.

What's New for 2014

2014 marks the introduction of the roomier fourth-generation Forester for Subaru. A 2-liter turbo engine has also been added to the Forester roster. New features include a power rear liftgate with automatic close, keyless access and start, and a driver assist system.

Choosing Your Subaru Forester

The 2.5i models offer both the new six-speed manual transmission and Subaru's continuously variable transmission (CVT). The new 250-horsepower 2-liter direct-injection turbocharged boxer engine is at the top of the lineup, and comes only with a CVT. All-wheel drive is standard across the line.

2.5i

A six-speed manual transmission is standard on the base $21,995 Forester. Standard equipment is somewhat sparse at this level and other features include 12-volt power outlets, 17-inch steel wheels with full covers, 24-hour roadside assistance, 60/40 split rear seatbacks, Bluetooth connectivity, a USB port and tie-down hooks.

2.5i Premium

Upgrading to the $23,495 Premium is well worth the extra cost. Standard features include a moonroof, a multifunction display, a 10-way power driver’s seat, body-color mirrors and dark tint privacy glass. The center console has an adjustable armrest lid with CVT models. Heated front seats and heated exterior mirrors are standard with the manual transmission and optional with the CVT.

2.5i Limited

The step up to a $27,995 brings a standard CVT with adaptive control and low shift mode, hill descent control, a rear spoiler, the all-weather package, climate control system, automatic headlights, a leather-wrapped steering wheel and shifter handle, and a power rear gate.

2.5i Touring

The top-of-the line Touring models come with the navigation system plus an eight-speaker 440-watt Harman Kardon sound system. With the naturally aspirated engine, a touring has an MSRP of $29,995.

2.0XT Premium

Most importantly, the $27,995 2.0XT adds a turbocharged engine. The sportier version of the CVT is standard in the Forester 2.0XT models, and includes six-speed and eight-speed manual shift modes with paddle shifters. The suspension is sport-tuned with 18-inch wheels.

2.0XT Touring

The range-topping Forester 2.0XT Touring checks in at $32,995. The Driver Assist Technology package is available with an EyeSight system that includes adaptive cruise control, pre-collision braking and vehicle lane departure warning. Keyless Access and HID headlights are also optional.
