At this moment the Subaru Forester is one of the best vehicles on the market and it brings great sale results for this Japanese car maker. From the 2015 Subaru Forester we do not expect to offer any major changes since it is still fresh and nicely positioned on the market.
Even this is a crossover it comes with great features and handling that we are used to get from sedan models. When we add the great level of safety that it offers for its occupants we have one quiet competitive and complete vehicle. Price of the 2015 Subaru Forester has not yet been officially announced but since the 2014th model came with $ 700 price increase we expect similar situation with this version also. Slightly above $ 20.000 will be the base price, we do not expect for a base model to exceed $ 21.000.

It can put car into intelligent, sport and sport sharp mode, these modes change the way powertrain and accelerator reacts plus gives it eight speed manual paddle shifting mode on CVT transmission.
