For 2009, Subaru's third-generation Forester is bigger, nimbler, safer and more refined than the model it replaces. With two great engine choices, new advanced safety features, a fresh new look, and Subaru's all-wheel drive system, the Forester has gone from a boxy wagon to more of a crossover vehicle. It now offers stiff competition to the likes of the Honda CR-V and Toyota RAV4. Even better, the 2009 Forester costs about $1,200 less than the model it replaces.
The third-generation Subaru Forester is all-new in and out for 2009 and moves more toward becoming a one of a new class of crossover utility vehicles. Symmetrical ll-wheel drive is standard on all Foresters, as is the company's renown 2.5L 4-cylinder boxer engines, which for 2009 has been tweaked to deliver more low-end torque. The Forester is three inches longer and rides on a new platform, with a 3.6-inch longer wheelbase, and the rear end gets double wishbone suspension, which not only makes for better handling, but improves interior room and cargo space.
From its debut in 1998 through its previous redesign in 2003, the Subaru Forester appealed to people who want the cargo room of a wagon and the nimble handling of a car. For 2009, the same versatility returns, with plenty of newly added features.
