Now standard with USB port and hands-free phone capabilities, the 2013 Subaru Forester is an AWD crossover wagon powered by a 2.5-liter 4-cylinder engine that produces 170 hp. The XT trims are powered by a 2.5-liter 4-cylinder turbocharged engine that produces 224 hp. Transmissions include a 5-speed manual, 4-speed automatic, or 4-speed automatic with a manual shift mode. Fuel mileage falls within an EPA estimated range of 19 mpg city to 27 mpg highway, depending on engine selection. Features include 6-speaker audio system, moonroof, heated front seats, leather-trimmed upholstery, dual-zone climate control, HID headlamps, and navigation. Safety is comprised of vehicle dynamic control (VDC), traction control system (TCS), anti-lock braking (ABS), tire pressure monitoring system (TPMS), advanced frontal airbags, side-curtain airbags, rollover sensor, and backup camera. The Forester is backed by a 3-year/36,000-mile warranty.
The Forester is not especially rakish or overtly stylish, but it packs a lot of all-weather practicality and safety with surprisingly strong performance--especially in turbocharged 2.5XT form. Forester 2.5XT models can be seen as stealth performance models, as they don't look all that much different from the 2.5X models yet are among the quickest crossover models at any price.
For 2013, the Subaru Forester receives minimal changes. Specifically, Sky Blue has been dropped as an exterior color, while Marine Blue and Deep Cherry Pearl are new. The All Weather Plus package for X Premium models includes fog lights and a 4.3-inch LCD stereo with an optional back-up camera.
The Forester can be found in several different trims for 2013--base, Premium, Limited and Touring--for a total of six models. But there's quite a difference between 2.5X and 2.5XT; 2.5X models come with a 170-horsepower, 2.5L horizontally opposed 4-cylinder engine, while XT models--only offered in Limited or Touring guise--include a 224-horsepower turbocharged version.
