No other vehicle in Subaru’s lineup has been as big a contributor to the company’s fortunes as the Forester compact crossover. The Forester doesn’t wow with the latest swoopy styling, but it has endeared itself to a growing group of buyers for its no-nonsense functionality and performance. But don’t let the conservative looks fool you—this Subie can hustle. The Forester XT model features a 250hp 2.0L turbocharged flat-four that can scoot the Forester to 60 mph in just a tick more than 6 seconds. The non-turbocharged Forester also gets a very good 32 mpg highway. Although it doesn’t have a traditional low range, the Forester features standard all-wheel drive, and a class-leading ground clearance of 8.7 inches, making it surprisingly capable in inclement weather or rough terrain. The Forester is also available with Subaru’s Eye Sight adaptive cruise control and emergency braking, helping it to earn a TSP+ rating from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety. If you’re looking for a compact, fun-to-drive, fuel-efficient crossover with a well-earned reputation for safety and reliability, the Subaru Forester is worth a look.
