2013 Subaru Forester Review

The 2013 Forester offers the combination of appealing design refined handling and astounding versatility. The horizontal layout of the 2.5-liter SUBARU BOXER 4-cylinder engine combines balance with power and efficiency. Forester is equipped with Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive for better stability efficiency and a quicker response to slippery conditions. Forester's spacious interior offers many comfort-minded available features including a 10-way power driver's seat reclining rear seats and an oversized panoramic moonroof. All Forester models come standard with a USB port iPod control up to six speakers and Bluetooth hands-free phone and audio connectivity. Every Forester features a total of six front front seat-side and side-curtain airbags. The advanced system uses an array of sensors including a rollover sensor to help deploy the airbags in the most effective way possible. The 2013 Subaru Forester big enough for nature small enough for your garage.
