  • Standard Symmetrical All-Wheel-Drive offers the advantage of a more balanced drive system, with a lower center of gravity that keeps the Forester planted in any condition.
  • Higher ground clearance helps to tackle the roughest terrain, along with a suspension system designed to ensure balance off of the highway.
  • Better fuel economy for longer trips between fuel stops
  • It remains one of the best values in the class - period!
