Forester was powered by a legacy engine that produces 30 mpg. After four years, its speed was upgraded to 2.5 liter four-cylinder with either four speed automatic or five speed manual.

Then in 2003, Subaru Forester focused not just on the improvement of its speed but also on its overall look. On the same year, the ride overhauled its interior and exterior features.

In 2004, the ride’s engine power was upgraded into a turbocharged engine. In the year after, Subaru Forester proved that it could survive all types of terrains and it could move under different weather conditions.

In 2006, Subaru Forester improved its speed from 30 mpg to 29 mpg. Then in 2007 to 2008, the ride focused more on becoming a great sport vehicle not just in the car industry, but also to its consumers.

A year after, Subaru Forester continuously improved its speed from a turbocharged 4 cylinder with 224 horsepower to a 4 cylinder with 130 horsepower.

After two years, Subaru Forester was known as the versatile crossover wagon. However it was not the first title given to the ride.

As years passed by, the award winning Subaru Forester has gained numerous titles like the 2013 Best Sports Car from Canadian Autos, 2013 Sports Car of the Year from Auto 123, 2013 Ward’s 10 Best Engines from BRZ United States, and 2012 Fun-est Car of the Year from Top Gear Australia.
