Subaru has increased the performance capability of the "Lineartronic" Continuously Variable Transmission, which it developed with German partner firm Schaeffler Technologies. The newly-designed CVT features a multi-link chain and guide rails to increase torque -- to a maximum of 500 Newtonmeters. The Forester weights in at 1.6 tons, and is powered by a 177 kW gas-powered engine. We put the Forester through its paces, to see whether it really qualifies as a "sport utility vehicle."
