2009 Subaru Forester

Now in its third incarnation, Subaru's versatile Forester Crossover has received the new, swept-back fascia seen on the restyled Tribeca and Impreza. Overall, the look is sleek and smooth when compared with the current hard-edged wagon. The trustworthy 2.5L Boxer still resides underhood, but with revised tuning to deliver better low-end and mid-range torque. A longer wheelbase (103 inches) with strengthened suspension and Subaru Dynamic Chassis Control Concept improve ride, handling, and quiet. Cancel that quiet with the advanced audio system upgrades like navigation, satellite radio, AUX, iPod, or MP3.
