2012 LA: 2014 Subaru Forester makes public debut

The 2014 Subaru Forester was released today at the 2012 Los Angeles Auto Show with some new styling updates and a bit more room.

Mated to the 2.5-liter model is either a 6-speed manual or Lineartronic CVT, and the 2.0-liter turbo gets a high-torque CVT with 6-speed and 8-speed manual modes and Hill Decent Control.

The automaker also notes that the suspension has been updated for greater control and comfort and the model gets 8.7 inches of ground clearance.
