2011 Subaru Forester Review

Introducing the 2011 Subaru Forester. Forester. To power you through the day choose from the smooth and efficient 170-horsepower 2.5X or the 2.5XT and its 224-horsepower turbocharged punch. And with SPORTSHIFT you can control power when you need it. Subaru Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive delivers traction and control that keeps you confidently in control. Settle into the available 10-way power driver’s seat and you’ll find yourself in a spacious cabin surrounded by amenities designed for you and your passengers’ convenience and comfort. Those in the rear are sure to appreciate the reclining rear seats and everyone will enjoy the sunshine and fresh air flowing in from the oversized panoramic moon roof. Add in custom temperature settings from the available automatic climate control system. Subaru places safety as one of our highest priorities and why we think about safety in 360 degrees. First we engineer the Forester with exceptional control and advanced accident avoidance technologies to help keep accidents from happening in the first place. Then we build it with protection technologies that have made it a Top Safety Pick. The 2011 Subaru Forester love the possibilities.
