Subaru expects sales of its 2014 Forester crossover to increase by about a 3rd this year to 100,000 units with the arrival of a redesigned, slightly larger version by March.


The 2014 Forester will attract more buyers because its highway fuel economy, says U.S. marketing boss Dean Evans at a press preview, ""The No. 1 consideration in this segment is fuel economy.""


Subaru says it has improved the car's drivability too, ""What customers like and want in an SUV is Subaru bones, cheaper and better and more reliable with a low center of gravity, off-road capabilities plus turbo performance,"" Subaru spokesman Michael McHale said.


At 180.9 in, the new 2014 Forester is 1.4 in longer than the present model. The wheelbase is 0.9 in longer at 103.9 in and is 1.3 in taller at 68.2 in. Subaru improved rear legroom by 3.7 in, done so by scalloping the seatbacks as well as lowering the center tunnel. The front doors were given a 5.3 in wider opening.

The 2.5i model carries over Subaru's 170 hp 2.5-liter 4-cylinder boxer engine, but the 5-speed manual and 4-speed automatic have been replaced by either a 6-speed manual or a continuously variable transmission. The 2.0XT model of the car has a new 250 hp, 2.0-liter turbocharged boxer engine.

It is supplied with stereo cameras raised over the rearview mirror and an audible warning if the car leaves its lane or sways, or approaches the vehicle before itself too quickly.
