“The Forester epitomizes the crossover vehicle class. We liked the Forester’s car-like driving character as opposed to piloting a big, clumsy SUV. The driver still gets a nice view of the road and good all-around visibility.”

“Subaru has long made cars that are meant to be more practical than posh. With lots of interior room, all-wheel drive standard on every model, and gutsy boxer engines, Subarus are the go-to choice for hikers, mountain bikers, and other outdoor enthusiasts.”
