2015 Subaru Forester Review

Overview
The 2015 Subaru Forester exceeds expectation! Get the ultimate AWD without sacrificing MPG. An efficient Lineartronic Continuously Variable Transmission helps the Forester get up to 32 highway MPG while its Subaru Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive has been enhanced with the available new X-Mode that helps safely navigate through the steep the bad and the slippery. Spread out and enjoy the amenities. In the Forester materials are richer the backseat is roomier and the larger panoramic moonroof supplies a better view. It’s loaded with everything you need and more of what you want. And because safety is always at the forefront of Subaru design we decided to take the Forester even further. An available EyeSight® Driver Assist system automatically monitors traffic movement optimizes cruise control and warns you when you're swaying outside your lane. There’s a whole lot to love in the 2015 Forester!
