I finally got see inside and out the new Forester. My dealer had one hidden in the back. A base 2.5. Its hard to pick from a 13 at a glance and once I saw it in profile it looked more like a older RAV 4 to me. Very Toyota looking. Inside I would be hard pressed to guess if I was in the Impreza or CrossTrek. The one and only positive comment was it has a much more airy feel to it inside than the 13 model. the A pillar plastic was poor fitting and although the dash is soft touch the window sills seemed like plastic. If I was on a budget I would buy a discounted 13 in base or premium trim over the 14 unless you love CVT's and probably in real world driving a couple more MPG'S. The turbo model offers a little more bling on the outside with suspension and engine upgrades this is the model to buy. But at almost 30k for a premium with some options it's expensive. the XT Touring is pushing mid 30's. Without driving one I would pass on the 2.5 i models and go for the XT in a couple of years.
