Subaru adds more trim levels to 2010 Forester line-up
At the North American International Auto Show, which runs January 11-24 at Cobo Center, Subaru has unveiled new versions of its top-selling Forester compact crossover SUV.
Arriving in February, the Forester 2.5X with Special Edition Package adds 16-inch alloys and roof rails at a price of just $400 over this model's $20,295 MSRP.
The Subaru Forester 2.5X Limited edition, which by default includes elegantly equipped with leather appointed interior, 10-way power driver's seat, automatic transmission, panoramic power moonroof and other amenities, now offers a new Navigation System and Convenience Package for $2,300. For $500 more than the regular Navigation System, the new Convenience Package also packs the Forester line's first-ever HID headlights, plus a tilt/telescopic steering wheel, one-touch folding rear seats and a cargo area cover.
Furthermore, the new Forester also features other enhancements for the model year 2010, including a standard 10-way power driver's seat for the 2.5X Premium and Bluetooth wireless capability for the available navigation system in the Limited trim lines.
The 2010 Subaru Forester comes standard with Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive, a real advantage over the competitive models that makes the all-wheel drive an extra-cost option. Forester is offered in five trim levels for 2010. The 2010 Forester 2.5X, powered by a 170-hp 2.5-liter 4-cylinder Subaru Boxer engine, is one of the best values in the crossover SUV segment. The 2.5X Premium adds a 10-way power driver's seat, large panoramic power moonroof and interior enhancements and offers an available All-Weather Package (heated front seats, heated side mirrors and windshield wiper de-icer). The Forester 2.5X Limited includes the All-Weather Package and offers more luxury and an available navigation system. For powerful, sporty performance, the 2.5XT Premium and 2.5XT Limited are powered by a 224-hp turbocharged/intercooled Boxer engine.
