2009 Subaru Forester Review
Your day- to-day endeavors ask a lot of you. But with more space more comfort and more versatility than ever the completely redesigned Subaru Forester has a way of changing the things you have to do into the things you love to do. Subaru Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive is the result of passionate engineering focused on giving drivers the best traction possible. Better traction means better handling and control. An SUV doesn’t have to drive like one. The remarkable agility of the Subaru Forester begins with its smooth-revving SUBARU BOXER Engine. The all-new Forester is loaded with features that help handle the multitasking for you such as grocery bag holders that keep items from spilling out during driving. Settle into the available 10-way power driver’s seat and you’ll find a more spacious cabin that surrounds you with amenities designed for you and your passengers’ comfort. Everyone will enjoy the quieter interior. Add in custom temperature settings from the available automatic climate control system and your only problem may be getting them to leave. Subaru’s commitment to protect drivers with multidimensional safety is what made each and every Subaru model tested an IIHS 2008 Top Safety Pick. Versatility you’ll love. The 2009 Subaru Forester.
