Overview of 2012 Subaru Forester 2.5XT Premium By Michael Perkins
That little T makes a big difference in the 2012 Subaru Forester 2.5XT Premium, as forced induction is added to the 2.5-liter boxer engine in the form of turbocharging. From the outside, you’ll be able to tell thanks to the rear spoiler that is absent in lesser trims. You’ll still have to settle for the shiftable 4-speed automatic transmission, but with the extra power from turbocharging you can still have a little fun—or as much as the traction and stability control will let you. You’ll also notice rear privacy glass and roof rails here, as well as 17-inch alloy wheels. The CD/MP3 player gets a USB port, digital-media connection, Bluetooth and controls on the steering wheel. There are daytime running and automatic headlights, and the driver gets 10-way power as well as a power sunroof. For safety, look to assisted 4-wheel antilock brakes, front-seat active head restraints and 6 airbags.
This overview covers the 2.5XT Premium trim only.
