All-new 2014 Subaru Forester Unveiled In Canada

For all 2014 Forester models, a new Electric Power Assisted Steering (EPAS) system contributes to fuel efficiency and also provides excellent feedback to the driver. In addition to the turbo engine, 2.0XT models deliver sharper handling response from sport-tuned suspension with 18-inch wheels, and the 2.0XT also features larger brakes than the 2.5i models, with ventilated front and rear rotors.

Forester's four-wheel independent suspension system delivers agile handling and capability. A generous 220 millimetres of ground clearance is higher than many crossovers and SUVs. For the 2014 reincarnation, Forester maintains a comfortably easy and low step-in, enhanced by widening the rear-door opening and lowering side sills by 38 millimetres for ease of entry and exit.

The 2014 Forester also debuts new amenities and conveniences along with more upscale luxury features on higher trim levels. All but the base 2.5i model come with a standard rear-view camera and colour multi-function display. Newly available features include a power rear liftgate with memory function, touchscreen navigation and an eight-speaker, 440-watt harman/kardon audio system as well as preventative safety technology in the EyeSight driver-assistance system. Rather than radar, Subaru developed a stereo camera system aptly named EyeSight, which acts as a second set of eyes for the driver and integrates Adaptive Cruise Control, Pre-Collision Braking and a Lane Departure Warning among other features.

The 2014 Forester combines evolutionary design themes with sharply defined new details in an all-new body. The 2.0XT models feature an exclusive aggressive looking sport design front bumper along with a one-piece mesh style grille and chrome-rimmed fog light bezels.

The 2014 Forester is built on a new platform featuring a wheelbase that's now 2,640 millimetres long. Vehicle length and width have increased by just 35 millimetres and 15 millimetres, respectively, yet thanks to Subaru's mastery of efficient vehicle packaging, the 2014 Forester offers notable gains in roominess, particularly in the rear seat where legroom is now 965 millimetres. Higher seat hip points, a lower centre tunnel and shorter front console also provide greater legroom and comfort for the centre rear-seat passenger. Maximum rear cargo area room with the 60/40-split rear seatbacks lowered is now 2,115 litres, which is among the best in its class.
