Subaru has a very loyal following, with the best automotive brand loyalty in the United States. The 6 millionth Subaru sold in the US last November -- and there's a high likelihood that it sold to a repeat Subaru buyer. So when it comes time to revise a successful model that represents 23% of Subaru sales, you don't throw out the old and start with a clean sheet of paper. You tread carefully, and employ evolutionary design.
The 2014 Subaru Forester represents a delicate set of refinements and improvements to the outgoing generation of Forester. Carrying base prices from $21,995 up to $32,995, the 2014 Subaru Forester will arrive on showroom floors in March of 2013. The EPA estimates that the new Forester can achieve 24 mpg city/32 mpg highway with its 2.5-liter naturally-aspirated engine, and 23 mpg city/28 mpg highway with the turbocharged 2.0-liter direct injection engine. Let's drive.
