In 1997 the Japanese automaker Subaru introduced a new line of compact crossovers, called "Forester". The Forester vehicles are built on the same platform as the Impreza models. Subaru Forester was manufactured in four generations.
The first generation (1997–2002) had a car style, but also featured a taller stance, higher h-point seating, and an all-wheel drive drivetrain. Two trim levels were offered – Forester L as a basic model with standard equipment, and Forester S with more improvements. There were two types transmission as well – 4-speed automatic and 5-speed manual transmission. The second generation started in 2003 model year and came with several fine-tune upgrades. New 2.5 L engine options became available. The second generation Forester was also provided with some weight-saving features – like aluminum hood, perforated rails, and a hydro-formed front sub-frame.
The third generation (2008–2013) featured a new style with longer wheelbase. The independent double wishbone rear suspension was modified as well. This resulted in superior handling and more convenient ride. Additional features, like the in-dash, touch-screen, Bluetooth compatible satellite navigation system, were also provided. The fourth generation was launched in 2014. This newest generation came with Continuously Variable Transmission (CVT) and revised, sport-oriented suspension. Both fuel economy and interior volume were improved, but the towing capacity was reduced.
During its almost 20-year history, Subaru Forester has become popular and has won several awards, including Motor Trend Magazine's SUV of the Year 2014 Award.
