Car reviews - Subaru - Forester - GT 5-dr wagon
24 Aug 2001
By BRUCE NEWTON
THE Forester GT offers the same five-seat accommodation as the rest of the Forester range - bucket front seats and a three-person bench in the rear. However, dual front airbags and seat-mounted side airbags are fitted as standard on the GT model. All four outside seating positions have height adjustable seatbelts, while the centre rear seat position has a lap/sash belt that retracts into the roof over the luggage compartment when not in use. There are four cupholders: one in the dash, one in the centre console storage bin - accessed through a sliding section in the bin lid, with a folding arm to hold the drink - and two in the rear of the centre console. The glovebox and above dash storage bin are both flock lined. Front and rear door armrests contain "secret" storage compartments.
