All-new 2014 Subaru Forester Unveiled In Canada

MISSISSAUGA, ON, Jan. 17, 2013 /CNW/ - Subaru Canada, Inc. (SCI) is thrilled to announce the Canadian premiere of its completely redesigned 2014 Forester today at Le Salon International de l'auto in Montreal. Set to arrive in dealerships in early spring, the 2014 Subaru Forester is an evolution rather than a revolution in its redesign. While still maintaining its strong reputation for safety, performance, dependability and versatility in the compact SUV segment, the new Forester will debut a bold exterior design and roomier interior along with improved performance and impressive fuel economy.

With virtually the same footprint as the outgoing model, the five-passenger 2014 Subaru Forester offers expanded room, comfort and utility. A new 2.0-litre direct injection twin-scroll turbocharged SUBARU BOXER engine producing 250 horsepower will be introduced on Forester 2.0XT models, while the naturally aspirated version will continue with the 2.5-litre horizontally opposed SUBARU BOXER engine producing 170 horsepower. Standard Subaru symmetrical full-time All-Wheel Drive continues to set Forester apart from segment competitors.

For the 2014 model year, Forester will jump to the head of its class in full-time all-wheel-drive fuel economy as Forester 2.5i models newly equipped with Subaru's Lineartronic CVT (continuously variable transmission) achieve manufacturer-estimated fuel economy ratings of 6.2 litres per 100 kilometres on the highway.

Forester will be available in the 2.5i entry level as well as a Convenience Package with a PZEV option, a Touring Package, and a Limited Package with an EyeSight option. Forester 2.5i entry level and Touring Package models offer a choice between a new 6-speed manual transmission or Subaru's vaunted Lineartronic CVT. All other Forester 2.5i models are equipped with our Lineartronic CVT.  A high-torque version of the CVT, featuring 6-speed and 8-speed manual shift modes with steering-wheel paddle shifters, is offered as standard equipment on the direct injection, twin-scroll turbocharged Forester 2.0XT with EyeSight option. All CVT models will also gain a brand new X-Mode and Hill Descent Control feature that works in conjunction with Subaru symmetrical full-time All-Wheel Drive, the SUBARU BOXER engine and the brake system to provide extra control in slippery driving situations. New safety features for all 2014 Forester models include anti-whiplash front seats, a driver's knee airbag, Brake Override and an impact-sensing fuel system cutoff.
