2015 Subaru Forester

Up to 22 MPG city / 28 MPG hwy
$22,195 - $33,095

One of the first 2014 vehicles out of the chute, the new fourth-generation Forester continues the brand's evolution toward a mainstream CUV, growing longer, taller, and less boxy, with cleaner lines and a modern-feeling interior. The new Forester isn't going to blow away the unconverted, but Subaru customers will get their usual reliable mix: Modest off-road capability, good storage, not-embarrassing gas mileage, excellent safety ratings, durability, and solid resale value. Drive dynamics are fairly poky, but the XT edition of the Forester, featuring a turbocharged version of their BRZ sportscar engine, gives the new edition a serious hop. It's not a masterpiece, but definitely capable, and in the XT edition, extra-capable. With competing vehicles from Toyota and Honda spinning their wheels somewhat, the Forester has a chance to compete in a crowded segment. See more... See Less

Pros Cons
Awd - great in my hilly town & commute Wish it got better mileage but i knew what i was getting into
Exterior styling - very modern and clean Front lights do not turn off automatically when you turn off car.
With 17 inch wheels, car rides smoother than 2006 Transmission does not perform up to expectations
This car handles so well and is a pleasure to drive, especially in snow Seats are not very comfortable on long drives
Handling of vehicle, on curves, snow, winding roads Console cup holders - too large, too deep
This vehicle carries everything we need and the dog with room to spare. Noisy engine, weird whiny noise
Safety, reliability - insurance was less because vehicle is safe. It's not the fastest in acceleration
The drivers seat and front passenger seats are very comfortable Interior material for seats stains easily
Sits up higher - easier to get in & out of, better visiblty Prefer smooth gear transfer of the outback
Handling & engine power for a 4 cylinder Whole middle console isnt very functional - needs redesign.
