The Subaru Forester is a five-door station wagon/ crossover vehicle. It is a front-engine, all-wheel drive car that seats five. Although originally designed as a station wagon, the Forester has transitioned to a crossover design, borrowing characteristics from SUVs. With ample cargo capacity, it is an ideal family vehicle. The all-wheel drive and rooftop cargo tie-downs make it an excellent option for travel, even to locations that are off the beaten path.
