What’s New for the 2014 Subaru Forester

The Subaru Forester has been completely redesigned for the 2014 model year with a fresh design that will please Subaru enthusiasts while at the same time attract new buyers to the nameplate.

2014 Subaru Forester Exterior

Subaru has a loyal customer following, but has struggled at times to attract new buyers. The 2014 Subaru Forester has been redesigned with the sleek exterior styling customers demand in the compact crossover segment to counteract this trend. From an aggressively-shaped front fascia to standard 17-inch steel wheels, the 2014 Forester boasts an athletic stance that is backed up by its versatile capability.

2014 Subaru Forester Performance

The 2014 Subaru Forester comes powered by a 2.5-liter boxer four-cylinder engine that produces 170 horsepower and 174 lb-ft of torque. For a boost in power, drivers can opt for the available 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine that pumps out 250 horsepower and 258 lb-ft of torque.

2014 Subaru Forester Efficiency

One of the big improvements that came in the 2014 redesign of the Forester was bolstered fuel economy. The base four-cylinder engine returns an impressive 24 mpg city and 32 mpg highway, and the high-performing turbocharged engine still returns 23 mpg city and 28 mpg highway.

2014 Subaru Forester Interior

The redesign of the 2014 Subaru Forester extended into the interior of the vehicle, where a new layout and quality materials create a comfortable cabin. A slew of innovative technology has also been added for 2014, and available features include an LCD display instrument cluster, a 6.1-inch touchscreen display with navigation, keyless entry and start, and an eight-speaker sound system.

2014 Subaru Forester Safety

Standard safety features on the 2014 Subaru Forester include stability and traction control, antilock disc brakes, and a comprehensive suite of airbags. A rearview camera, lane departure warning, and collision mitigation system are also available.
