Special features for 2013
The Forester is not especially rakish or overtly stylish, but it packs a lot of all-weather practicality and safety with surprisingly strong performance--especially in turbocharged 2.5XT form. Forester 2.5XT models can be seen as stealth performance models, as they don't look all that much different from the 2.5X models yet are among the quickest crossover models at any price. Because the Forester has a winning combination of all-wheel drive, a rather light weight and good ground clearance, it's one of the best choices for deep snow or muddy trails. Thanks to the rather boxy body style, its interior is surprisingly roomy and versatile compared to some other rival models that are about the same size on the outside.
