The new-generation Forester is a total re-design of the award-winning crossover SUV that has built a strong reputation as an icon of safety, dependability and versatility. The new Forester brought a bolder, more SUV-like design and made a major leap in safety technology, comfort, refinement and driving dynamics - a noteworthy accomplishment considering the high standards set by the previous model. As with all Subaru models, the 2010 Forester comes equipped as standard with Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive.

For 2010, the Forester includes Bluetooth wireless capability for the available navigation system in Limited trim lines, with a microphone in the overhead console. Bluetooth allows hands-free phone usage with a compatible cell phone. A revised instrument cluster features easier-to-see colors. In addition, a new map light door interlock switch enables the owner to select the map lights to illuminate with door opening. The 2.5X Premium gains a standard 10-way power passenger seat.

The new-generation Forester again blends positive SUV attributes, including a high seating point and interior versatility, with passenger car comfort, handling and fuel efficiency. Even with its bolder exterior and roomier interior, the new-generation Forester is only about three inches longer than its predecessor, thus retaining the trim exterior packaging cited by Forester owners as one of this model's most essential attributes.

All Forester models for 2010 feature standard side-curtain airbags with a rollover sensor, and the Vehicle Dynamics Control (VDC) stability and traction control system and Brake Assist safety system are standard on all models. Manual-transmission models also feature Incline Start Assist, which can momentarily prevent the vehicle from rolling backward when being driven away from a stop on an incline.

Forester is offered in five trim lines for 2010. The Forester 2.5X is one of the best values in the crossover SUV segment. The 2.5X Premium adds a 10-way power driver's seat, large panoramic power moonroof and interior enhancements and offers an available All-Weather Package (heated front seats, heated side mirrors and windshield wiper de-icer). The Forester 2.5X Limited includes the All-Weather Package and offers more luxury without compromising the vehicle's responsive nature and offers an available navigation system. For powerful, sporty performance, the 2.5XT Premium and 2.5XT Limited are powered by a 224-hp turbocharged/intercooled Boxer engine.
