|Subaru of America, Inc., has introduced two new Sports versions of the Forester compact sport-utility vehicle for 2007, which had received a restyling for the 2006 model year. The new Forester Sports 2.5 X model combines added style with enhanced standard equipment. The Forester Sports 2.5 XT adds to that the 224-hp intercooled turbo Boxer engine from the 2.5 XT Limited model, giving customers access to the turbo's scorching performance at a lower price point.
For 2007, the Forester is offered in six versions (up from four). The 2.5 X, Sports 2.5 X, 2.5 X with Premium Package, and L.L Bean Edition models are all powered by a 173-hp 2.5-liter Boxer engine. Models powered by this engine achieve Partial Zero Emission Vehicle (PZEV) certification for California, Massachusetts, Maine, New York and Vermont – with the same power output as the 45-state emissions certified model. In addition, all Forester models powered by this engine achieve EPA-estimated fuel economy ratings of 22 mpg in city driving and 29 mpg highway with the 5-speed manual transmission, and 23/28 mpg with the optional 4-speed automatic.
All Forester models come standard with Subaru Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive, a significant all-road, all-weather traction advantage over competitors that offer front-wheel drive as standard and make All-Wheel Drive an extra-cost option. Three versions of Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive are used in the 2007 Forester line. Exclusive to the Forester Sports 2.5 XT with the optional automatic transmission is the Variable Torque Distribution (VTD) version of the system, along with the Vehicle Dynamics Control (VDC) stability system and four-wheel traction control.
