Scores big on the inside

Functional, comfortable and cool: Despite its compact size, the completely redesigned 2014 Subaru Forester sports a richer passenger cabin with more interior space and supreme flexibility. Among the many welcome features are available leather seating, an array of advanced technologies to keep you connected and entertained, a generous cargo compartment and reclining rear seats that also fold flat to increase useable space.
Multimedia System This available multimedia powerhouse features a 6.1 inch, high-resolution touch screen that operates the AM/FM/CD/MP3/WMA /DivX®/WMV/MP4 audio system, GPS navigation and rear-view camera. The navigation system includes XM® NAVTraffic updates to help ease commuting time (subscription required), while the entertainment experience is augmented by a spectacular, 440-watt Harman Kardon® 8-speaker package with 8-channel amp, HD Radio, iTunes Tagging, a free 3-month trial subscription to XM Satellite Radio and other digital media support. For greater on-the-fly functionality, Bluetooth® mobile phone connectivity with voice recognition (in English and in French), Aha Radio for smartphone (iPhone 4 compatible) integration that displays news feeds and social media status updates and email/SMS text messaging capability is also included.
Advanced Audio System The standard AM/FM/CD/MP3/WMA audio system on the Subaru Forester includes auxiliary audio input, steering wheel audio controls, text display and automatic vehicle-speed sensitive volume adjustment. All models also feature iPod®/USB audio integration, Bluetooth® mobile connectivity and Bluetooth streaming audio to ensure your favourite music is always close at hand and you’re always in touch. Select models gain two extra speakers, a 3-month free trial subscription to XM® Satellite Radio, HD radio and an audio setting display on the multi-function screen.
Cargo Area Although the Forester is a compact SUV, its storage capacity, with rear seats folded down, has increased to 2115L (models without a sunroof) and that space is easily accessible through a lower, wider opening that’s shaped to be even more accommodating. The standard 60/40-split flat-folding rear seats create added room, four tie-down hooks and two utility hooks help to secure loose items, and three 12V power outlets bring added convenience. An available cargo area tray and cargo cover help further protect valued items, while the new power lift gate with memory feature, now standard on select models, makes loading far easier when your hands are full.
