Review: 2014 Subaru Forester 2.5i

Last year, I had a chance to take a crack at the previous-generation Forester, finding it to be capable if uninspiring. Now I have an opportunity to review its successor, the all-new-for-2014 model in this absolutely lovely shade of gold – sorry, Burnished Bronze...yeah right.

Were it about the color alone, I'd fail this car right now. But since the new Forester looks exactly one billion times better in any other hue, I can allow myself to be just and impartial in my assessment.
