2014 Subaru Forester: Around The Block

The Subaru Forester has long been the vehicle of choice for outdoorsy people, competent, no-nonsense lesbians, and Vermonters (not to be confused with Vermonsters, a colossal tub of ice cream incapable of purchasing a car), and I don't think that's going to change with the new 2014 model. It's been updated in some… » 11/13/12 11:00pm 11/13/12 11:00pm

2009 Subaru Forester, Part Three

The original Forester design sought to stuff an SUV into downscaled packaging more palatable to the food co-op set. The 2009 model abandons its predecessors' upright, boxy vibe for something closer to a streamlined crossover approach. Sleeker, yet still oozing functionality. And, of course, the… » 3/11/08 12:20pm 3/11/08 12:20pm

2009 Subaru Forester, Part One

Is it kismet? I suspect so, as over a few short weeks, a couple of themes have begun to emerge in our Jalopnik Reviews. First, Hardigree gets his hands on a Dodge Caliber SRT4 and loses a tire.

2009 Forester Interior Pic Leaked

The WRXers over at the NASIOC forums managed to snag the first picture we've seen of the 2009 Subura Forester interior. If this is to be believed, it looks like the Forester is going to get the autoshift as an option. Given the nav screen we're guessing this is XS or limited trim. The dash seems to maintain the three… » 12/07/07 2:45pm 12/07/07 2:45pm
