The Subaru Forester was originally created using the Impreza chassis underpinning it.

Nowadays the two models do share a platform but it is shared along with many other lines across the Subaru range.

It is classed as a compact crossover SUV, bearing the chassis of a road-going car with the body of an SUV.

Production of the model began in 1997 as Honda and Toyota had both just released their own versions of this model, essentially creating a new class of cars.

What made the Forester stick out was its low center of gravity thanks to its boxer engine – this led to the car not needing a sticker warning of rollover like the other models.

It also had four-wheel drive as standard whereas most crossover SUVs only offer that as an upgrade as their buyers are conscious of additional weight.

Over the years several performance trims have also been offered with the car including the WRX and STi after seeing success with the same strategy on the Impreza.

Modern examples of the Subaru Forester are stylish and aerodynamic, moving away from the boxy appearance that it was known for during the 1990s.

Subaru has even added a mild-hybrid version of the car to the order list that they branded as the e-BOXER that recycles lost energy from braking.
