This might surprise you, but Subaru have been making ‘boxer’ (or horizontally-opposed) engines for 50 years now. In that time, they’ve churned out more than 16 million of them, so it’s certainly fair to say they’ve got it down to a fine art. That process of continuous refinement applies equally to the cars that are powered by them, and none represents that ethos better than the Subaru Forester.
The Subaru Forester has received a round of changes for the 2015 model year, not the least of which is the arrival of the company's Lineartronic CVT auto as an option for the diesel-powered models.
The 4x4 market has changed enormously in recent years. Compact SUVs fill the sector, with each iteration becoming softer, more family-oriented and less focused on making it through the rough stuff. Indeed, many aren’t even four-wheel drive. Luckily, there is one manufacturer that knows more about four-wheel drive than almost any other - Subaru - and one of their more practically-minded options is the Forester.
