The new 2014 Subaru Forester is one of our favourite vehicles available right now, not only is the new design a big win with consumers, but it is tops in safety ranking and just pulled in another win as SUV of the year with Motortrend. Subaru is the only three-time winner of Sport/Utility of the Year, up against brands like Land Rover, Audi and Acura. The Crosstrek also ranked as a finalist.
Subaru is the only automaker with back-to-back wins as well as the most wins in the SUV category, in the past 6 years some of the other wins have gone to the 2010 Outback and 2009 Forester.
Why did it win? “Smart design, thoughtful engineering, and a compelling performance on road and off were the keys to the Forester’s win.” Motortrend says. “Our editors were particularly impressed by the powerful yet efficient turbocharged engines, the intelligent and sporty CVT transmission, and the excellent visibility and interior package found within the Forester. Practical, affordable, efficient and fun to drive – Forester truly ticked every box.”
This is a huge accolade, and we are proud that Subaru has hit a home run with this vehicle. We did a walkaround ourselves to show you some of the new features:
“This true SUV in the compact SUV segment has been breaking sales records across Canada since it first appeared in dealerships this spring,” said Shiro Ohta, president and CEO of Subaru Canada, Inc. “Winning MOTOR TREND’s 2014 SUV of the Year is another feather in the cap of Subaru’s award-winning lineup. We anticipate more and more Canadians will put Subaru on their shopping list.”
