The 2015 Subaru Forester presents the newest version of this crossover. This car really came to life with its redesign in 2014, where it got all the perks we love about it now. The company made such a success with these changes in the Forester’s story it is only logical not to expect any huge changes on the 2015 model. A big redesign could be a risky move which could ruin the reputation this car has at the moment since probably not even the Subaru engineers expected such an outcome with the 2014 model given that its predecessor played a minor part in the USA market shares. Anyone who agrees with this statement is right. The new model comes with mild upgrades, redesigned parts here and there and more or less the same performance. But this is not bad news. Au contraire, this car has proven itself to be worthy of one’s attention by fulfilling any need while staying modest, reasonably priced and convenient.
2015 Subaru Forester Appearance
As for the exterior, the 2015 Subaru Forester will keep the same look previous model had. The new article on the list of offerings when it comes to this car is the two body lines. When you think about it, this solution seems quite logical. The faster trims will have a more aggressive look, aiming for the urban, young and fearless buyers, while the less powerful ones will have a more modest and soothing look. In addition, some of the new options are the wheels offered. There are 17-inch wheels and two types of 18-inch wheels, which differ in the finishing touches. All of the offered wheels are alloy ones. Also optional are the HID headlights that come with the Touring Package. Once again, Subaru managed to present a car that has well-balanced look that goes with the perks it offers. There is nothing fake about this car: what you see is exactly what you get.
Interior And Comfort Of 2015 Subaru Forester
Not only did the 2015 Subaru Forester keep its old look, it also has the same cabin. The biggest change concerning the interior of this crossover is the new full color multi-function display. Finally, it is in sync with the level of technology around the world. Another great improvement is the rear view camera, which made its way on the list of the standard equipment now. Of course, the steering wheel is packed with buttons (did you expect something else?) which help you access any control in a heartbeat. As for the audio system, no surprises here either. The base version comes with a six-speaker system which can be used for voice controlled navigation as well, and has all the necessary functions you might need. If you are still unsatisfied with this offer, you can ask for the eight-speaker Harmon Kardon Audio System. The most important fact about this crossover is the volume of the trunk. It can hold up to 74.7 cubic feet of cargo with rear seats folded. No one can say there is not enough room in this car. Bear in mind, this is one of the most important specs when it comes to a car this class, so any small flaws it might have are completely compensated with this number. Also, when you need a car this size, it is only logical to assume you will be transporting something in it. Subaru shares our logic and is offering this crossover with everything you need to do so, from trailer hitches to ski racks.
