Interview with Takuji Dai, 2014 Subaru Forester project lead
By Ryan Douthit, Driving Sports
Recently, we flew down to Arizona to test the all-new 2014 Subaru Forester. Our driving impressions are still under embargo, so you’ll have to wait a bit for the full review. For now, here’s a preview
featuring an exclusive interview with the project lead on the new Forester, Takuji Dai. In the video Dai-san discusses the turbo, the new model's enhanced off-road capabilities and how the 2014 2.0XT compares to the previous generation JDM Forester STI.
Update: With the embargo now ended, we can share this "hot lap" video
which features some in-car commentary on the new Forester 2.0XT. A full review (including off-road driving) will appear in Driving Sports TV Season 2, which kicks off in February.
