Since its introduction for the 1997 model year, Subaru’s somewhat oddly proportioned Forester has been a welcomed alternative to more traditional SUVs, thanks to its uncanny ability to handle the road like a car, haul cargo like a small sport/utility vehicle, and scramble through a snow drift or a sand dune with equal aplomb.
Subaru of America, Inc. is showcasing two new versions of its All-Wheel Drive 2007 Forester compact SUV at the annual Specialty Equipment Market Association (SEMA) Show. The 2007 Forester Sports models combine new, more powerful styling with exclusive interior features and enhanced standard equipment. The Forester Sports 2.5 XT adds to that the 224-horsepower intercooled turbocharged Boxer engine from the 2.5 XT Limited model.
The Limited Edition Forester X Weekender comes with a load of extras, including a cargo area hard mat. It also comes with Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive and a 5-star ANCAP3 occupant safety rating, making it one of the safest compact SUV’s on the road.
