2014 SUBARU FORESTER: A major attraction in the Subaru exhibit at last year's Chicago Auto Show was the total re-designed 2014 Subaru Forester. On display again during the '14 Chicago show, Feb 8-17th, this popular small SUV is now in it's fourth generation, sporting a bolder redesigned exterior body. And, while it has virtually the same footprint as the outgoing model, the new model contains an expanded five-passenger interior room. With the 60/40 split rear seatbacks lowered, the Forester provides a maximum of 74.7 cubic feet cargo room. The '14 Forester maintains a comfortably easy and low step-in, enhanced this year by wider-opening rear doors and by side sills that are 2 inches lower than before. Available in base, Premium, Limited and top-tier Touring versions, the Forester is offered with a 170 horsepower 2.5-liter naturally aspirated Boxer engine or new 250hp 2.0L direct-injection turbocharged Boxer. Depending on powerplant and trim level, the engines are matched to either a new six-speed manual gearbox or a high-torque continuously variable transmission (CVT) that features six-speed and eight-speed manual shift modes with steering wheel paddle switches. As with all previous Forester models, the 2014 version comes standard with Subaru symmetrical all-wheel drive system, recognized for dependability, performance and versatility. All but the base 2.5i model come with a standard rear vision camera and color multi-function display. New available features include a power rear liftgate with automatic close, keyless access and start and the EyeSight driver assist set-up that uses a stereo camera developed by Subaru, rather than radar and integrates adaptive cruise control, pre-collision braking and vehicle lane departure warning systems.
