AUSTRALIA: Subaru Forester named Best Sports Utility Vehicle (SUV) in Australia’s Best Cars awards
NOVEMBER 2013: Subaru’s new generation All-Wheel Drive Forester 2.5i has been recognised as the Best SUV under $45,000 in Australia’s Best Cars awards.
The award from Australia’s combined motoring organisations maintains Forester’s status as one of the most decorated vehicles in the Australian automotive industry. Cars were evaluated by the NRMA, RACV, RACQ, RAASA, RACWA, RACT and AANT against a broad range of criteria including: value for money, design and function, and on- the-road performance.
The Forester was the original Compact SUV when it was launched in 1997 pioneering this class of vehicle. A fantastic combination of durability, safety, great engineering and refinement have made it an ongoing winner for Subaru and it continues to maintain its status as a leading innovator in the market.
