The award-winning, third generation Forester enters its second model year.
When Subaru began planning its current Forester, it paid considerable attention to owners of the first- and second-generation versions. With limited expansion of exterior dimensions, the new-generation Forester has given customers more leg and cargo room and a host of practical convenience features. Plus, the overall exterior design provides excellent visibility to help make Forester easy to maneuver.
The new model year gave Subaru an opportunity to upgrade its popular compact SUV. In addition to a revised exterior color-selection list, upgrades can be found inside.
A new 10-way power driver's seat is now standard on Premium as well as Limited models. The seat includes power lumbar for added comfort.
Forester Limited models with the Subaru navigation system have Bluetooth phone and audio capability. With the system, a Bluetooth cellular telephone can be set up to automatically make and receive calls using the buttons on the steering wheel and the navigation screen. An integrated microphone serves as the phone's mouthpiece, and the audio system's front speakers carry the voice of the person on the other end of the call.
Bluetooth technology utilizes short-range radio frequencies to connect Bluetooth-enabled electronic devices. (Fall 2009 Drive will have an article about Bluetooth.)

With its contemporary styling and a practical design, the award-winning Forester complements active lifestyles.
