This is a very good and balanced combination. It is a real AWD, a wagon, a comfortable car, and a sportive machine. Its low center of gravity allow the Forester to have a very safe driving considering the performance of the turbo. In addition this turbo makes it economical (you do not consume much fuel when you do not need much acceleration or speed, but when you need it or want it you have it).
Performance, acceleration, top speed and balance. Moon roof is excellent.
The design is not the main focus of Subaru, but some people does not like it so much.
