2009 Subaru Forester Overview
The Subaru Forester is a crossover vehicle that blends many of the best attributes of a sport-utility vehicle with the ride and driving dynamics of a car. Redesigned for 2009, the Forester enters its third generation on an all-new platform, with a wheelbase that is 3.6 inches longer than the outgoing model and a new double-wishbone rear suspension that enhances cargo capacity.
The Forester is available in four trim levels: 2.5 X, 2.5 X Limited, 2.5 XT and 2.5 XT Limited. All trim levels are equipped with Subaru's Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive and a 2.5-liter horizontally-opposed four-cylinder engine; in both 'X' variants, the engine is naturally-aspirated and produces 170 horsepower, while both 'XT' variants generate 224 horsepower, compliments of an intercooled turbocharger. The 2.5 X gets a 5-speed manual transmission with Incline Start Assist, while all other trims get a 4-speed automatic with manual shift mode (available on the 2.5 X). Notable (trim-dependent) features include a panoramic glass sunroof, 17-inch alloy wheels, automatic climate control, leather upholstery and heated front seats. In 2009, an optional touch-screen GPS navigation system is offered for the first time on the Forester. Standard safety equipment includes electronic stability and traction control systems, four-wheel anti-lock disc brakes with brake assist, active front head restraints, front side-impact airbags and front and rear side curtain airbags with a rollover sensor.
The Subaru Forester is completely redesigned for 2009, with revised exterior styling, an upgraded interior and additional standard equipment and safety features.
