The 2012 Forester line includes naturally aspirated models, designated 2.5X, and the 2.5XT models powered by a 224-hp turbocharged/intercooled Boxer engine. The 2.5X models last year debuted an all-new double-overhead-cam (DOHC) 2.5-liter Boxer engine for increased fuel efficiency. The Forester is Subaru's best-selling vehicle and, like all Subaru models, features Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive as standard equipment. Subaru expects the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) "Top Safety Pick" rating to continue for the 2012 Forester models.
