4dr Man 2.5X
Starting at | Starting at 21 MPG City - 27 MPG Highway
For space and capability, the Forester is a winner. Consumer Reports named last year's Forester as its Top Pick for small SUVs, and with few changes to the 2011 model, it should continue to earn such honors. Like all Subarus, it features full-time all-wheel drive, and for 2011 the Forester earned 21 mpg city and 27 mpg highway fuel economy ratings from the EPA.
Subaru has updated the Forster's engine for 2011, bumping up the torque and improving gas mileage. A new model, the Touring, has been added to the lineup, which has a few extra features above the Limited, including a back-up camera and dual-zone climate controls. There are still two models with turbocharged engines, but the new Touring trim will replace the Limited.
The 2011 Subaru Forester comes in five trim levels. The 2.5X models get a 2.5-liter 4-cylinder boxer that makes 170 hp. The XT model utilizes a turbocharged, intercooled version that makes 224 hp. The base and Premium models have a standard 5-speed transmission, while the Limited and Touring models come with a 4-speed electronic transmission.
