2014 Subaru Forester 2.0XT Review and Quick Spin: Introduction
When last I sampled the redesigned 2014 Subaru Forester, the final line in my review was: “Now I just need to get my hands on the turbocharged version.” As it happens, I’ve done just that, and right after Autobytel’s team of editors announced the 2014 Forester as its favorite “Crossover of the Year.”
Now, after a week of subjecting the 2014 Forester 2.0XT to kid-shuttling duties in the suburbs, a trip to the local warehouse store, a drive up the coast to the beach, and some light-duty off-roading, it is clearer than ever why our team, and other critics, applaud the redesigned Forester. However, the complaints I voiced in my original review of the crossover suv stand pat. Because they are related to things that impact an owner on a daily basis, and they are not necessarily matters of acclimation over time, I urge Subaru to address them as soon as possible.
