OverviewSubaru Forester

Thanks to its high stance, standard all-wheel drive and available turbocharged power, the Forester has long been a hit with buyers who live in snowy climes or drive off the beaten path. Now Subaru fans who enjoyed the previous model, as well as just about any other consumer shopping for a small crossover SUV, will find even more to love with redesigned versions of the Forester. Discover the ins and outs on used Subaru Foresters, available now in Carvana's inventory.

NOTEWORTHY FEATURES

Excellent Safety Ratings

The Subaru Forester has earned impressive marks for safety, making it one of the top hatchback options for that category. In government crash tests, the Forester received a top five-star rating for overall protection, while the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) gave the Forester a top score of Good across its litany of tests. The IIHS also gave the Forester a Superior rating for its frontal crash mitigation braking system.

Roomy Interior

Despite having a rather simply designed interior, the Forester's cabin area is highly functional and offers plenty of room for passengers and their cargo. In fact, the rear legroom available in the Forester is only about an inch shy of what you would find in the Mercedes-Benz S-Class sedan, according to Edmunds. With the rear seats folded, the Forester also allows for 74.7 cubic feet of storage capacity; nearly 4 more cubic feet than the Honda CR-V, which has long been considered the king of this segment.

Impressive Fuel Economy

For an all-wheel drive crossover, Forester provides solid fuel economy. For CVT (Continuously Variable Transmission)-equipped 2.5i models, the Forester gets an EPA-estimated 27 mpg combined (24 mpg city/32 mpg highway). Foresters with manual transmissions see their fuel efficiency numbers slightly dip to 25 mpg combined.

ADDITIONAL CONSIDERATIONS

Touchscreen Interface

While there's no doubt that the Forester can get the job done, it does have a few drawbacks. Perhaps chief among these detractors is the clunky touchscreen interface that comes standard on all Forester models. If top notch infotainment is what you're looking for, the Forester falls a bit short.

Engine At High RPM

On the whole, the Forester has done well to insulate passengers from road and wind noise. However, when the Forester's base engine is pushed to a higher RPM, loud noise emanates from that area of the vehicle.

Transmission

No one will ever confuse the Subaru Forester with a sports car, but even by segment standards, the Forester's transmission can be slow to respond to changes in the vehicle's application of power.
