Outperforming the competition, the Forester's Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive Pulls-Through

The all-new Subaru Forester is already a standout crossover here at Riley Subaru.  With its versatile and spacious design, the Forester is adventure-equipped at every turn.  To further prove its worth, Subaru put it to the test.  The challenge, organized by the United States Auto Club, pinned the Top 5 Small All-Wheel Drive Crossovers -- the Ford Escape, Mazda CX-5, Toyota RAV4, Honda CR-V, and Subaru Forester -- against one another in the ultimate test of traction and control.  Each vehicle attempted to climb a ramp that was set at a 30.5 degree grade, lined with polyethylene and water.  Check out the video below to see the results.


As you can see, the Subaru Forester came out on top, being the only crossover to conquer the ramp.  The balanced design of its Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive system provides the optimal amount of power, when you need it most.  Its advanced power control delivers maximum traction, improved handling, and the quickest possible response to road conditions.  Curious to learn more about Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive?  Come by Riley Subaru and experience it first-hand.  It comes standard on the Outback, XV Crosstrek, Legacy, Impreza, WRX/STI and, of course, the Forester.  Enjoy better handling and traction in Dubuque, Manchester, Lancaster, Platteville and Galena with an all-new Subaru.
