Subaru Forester Overview
Following its back-to-basics redesign, the Forester has topped our Ratings. Its positives include large windows, big doors, an excellent driving position, and unusually spacious rear seating. In our tests, the 2.5-liter four-cylinder and CVT averaged a near-class-leading 26-mpg overall. Downsides include the somewhat jittery ride and less-than-agile—although ultimately secure—handling. Engine noise is pronounced at times, too. Controls are very simple, and in 2015 the infotainment and connectivity systems will finally be updated. Midtrim Foresters bring a lot of content for the money. The optional X-Mode gives it some off-road ability. A backup camera is now standard.
