Overview

The Subaru Forester delivers the SUV features buyers want, including a high seating position, good cargo space and a superb all-wheel-drive system with a modicum of off-road capability. Yet it also offers fuel mileage and ride comfort that's more like a car.

The Forester model line has been simplified for 2006. Three of the four variants are powered by the base 173 hp 2.5-liter four-cylinder normally aspirated engine. The turbocharged 2.5XT Limited is the most powerful Forester, and also the most expensive. Its high-performance engine has dual overhead cams, with variable valve timing and lift for a smooth, even power band. Improvements to the intercooler, among other things, increase peak horsepower by 20 to 230. All Foresters come with antilock brakes. All but the 2.5X also have electronic brake-force distribution, which evenly proportions brake force as grip under the tires changes. All are equipped with dual-stage front-impact airbags, front-passenger side-impact airbags and active front head restraints designed to minimize whiplash injuries.

For 2006, the Subaru Forester has been restyled front and rear. Inside, subtle changes add comfort and convenience; the suspension has been revised; and a modest increase in horsepower is added to the powertrain.
