2014 Subaru Forester XT, Canadian. I can't quite sus what model I have. Leather,heated seats, backup camera, Sunroof as big as Texas. No eyesight, no gps, but automated liftgate. Somehow I think the American model is different. Can anyone clear up my puzzling?

You might want to do a search on a Canadian VIN website. Upon entering your VIN number, the results may include the trim line.

Not sure if the following VIN site will work for Canadian VIN numbers but this one shows the trim line for my US Forester:

Thanks ForesterBill, Yes right you are. I should have been more clear about the confusion. If I run the VIN on DMV.org, It says it's a Touring+M/R with a 2.5Turbo. No idea what "M/R" indicates.

However Automobile magazine says its a touring model.

Driving dot ca calls it a Limited.

Based on the site below. I think I can say it's a limited....

Heck! I'll go by a dealer and see what they say.

OK call me a dummy. My carfax says it's a 2014 Forester XT Touring. As it is Canadian, I'm curious if this is the same as in the U.S. or if it has a different label. My concern is if I by parts in the U.S. I dont want to be confused by a label that is perhaps different somewhere else.

Limited in Canada = Touring in the US. Parts will be the same, regardless.

Eyesight and GPS were optional in 2014.

Do you have rear heated seats? That was a Canada only feature.

No Eyesight, no GPS. I'll have to check out my backseats. I mainly was curious about the parts factor, so thank you for your comments.
