Transmission: Manual 6 Speed Color:Green Interior Color: Gray Average Vehicle Review: (4.909090909090909 reviews) terrible gas mileage. I upgraded from a honda fit because I needed more space to haul around my booth (I am an artists who does a lot of craft shows and needed a vehicle that could handle the weight) I expected the mileage to be close to the sticker (22city/27hwy) and seriously, total lies. I drive "highway" often, but the only time I saw 27 mpg was on a road trip (1400+ miles). I was regretting not getting the VW tdi diesel wagon, but now that VW was exposed for fraud regarding emissions, I am only moderately ok with choosing the subaru.

I get almost 28 miles to the gallon which is incredible considering the rising cost of gas. Only con, if I would even call it that, is the susceptibility to getting pushed by high winds. I live in a high wind area and sometimes it’s a little scary.

Transmission: Automatic Color:Blue Interior Color: Gray Average Vehicle Review: (4.75 reviews) The Subaru Forester XT version has a LOT more pep and responsiveness than the 2.5 litre engined Forester. Gas mileage suffers a little (we are currently getting between 24 and 28 highway and 20-24 in town) but the additional acceleration more than makes up for that. I like the AWD and the option to "manually" shift the car, and the S1 and S# gearing and suspension adjustment for windy roads or snow or rain. If you are really in the snow, you can select XMode which is like a four wheel drive mode for up to 25 miles per hour (it automatically drops out of Xmode above 24 MPH). Real leather seats. Nice stitching. Well appointed with dual air and heat. Heated front seats. HUGE sunroof with windbreak at front. Handles wonderfully.

Popular Trims

2008-2013-Third Generation Subaru Forester

In 2008, Subaru updated the Forester line to embrace a crossover SUV design. The 2013 Subaru Forester serves as a bookend for this generation, taking advantage of a half-decade worth of refinements. The 2013 Subaru Forester XT trims upgrade the standard 170 horsepower 2.5L four-cylinder SUBARU BOXER® to a faster 224-horsepower turbocharged variation. You can choose from six trim levels with the 2.5X, 2.5X Premium, 2.5X Limited, and 2.5X Touring all sporting the standard engine with the 2.5XT Premium and 2.5XT Touring featuring the turbocharged variation. Third generation models feature a standard five-speed manual transmission and an available four-speed automatic transmission. 

2014-2018 (Fourth Generation Subaru Forester)

In 2014, Subaru released the redesigned, reworked fourth-generation Subaru Forester. This generation carries over the standard 170 horsepower 2.5L four-cylinder SUBARU BOXER® engine. Additionally, fourth-generation models feature an even roomier interior giving you more room for gear and groceries. The 2017 Subaru Forester features a mid-generation exterior style facelift with features like an aggressive front grille and restyled lighting fixtures.

The fourth-generation Forester is available in six trims with the 2.5i, 2.5i Premium, 2.5i Touring, and 2.5i Limited coming with the standard engine while the 2.0XT Premium and 2.0XT Touring trims feature the turbocharged engine. Fourth-generation models without a moonroof feature an increased 34.4 cubic feet of cargo space that expands to 74.7 cubic feet with the rear seat lowered. If you're looking to take advantage of four models worth of refinements, you should check out the 2018 Subaru Forester, which is the last of the fourth-generation models.

Reviews for Subaru Forester

Overall Rating

4.4 out of 5 (56 reviews)

love it - a workhorse

this car is perfect for my needs - I just needed a spacious, solid car to haul kids and gear point A to point B. I get almost 28 miles to the gallon which is incredible considering the rising cost of gas. Only con, if I would even call it that, is the susceptibility to getting pushed by high winds. I live in a high wind area and sometimes it’s a little scary.

Pros

  • Interior Space:
  • Fuel Economy:
  • Reliability:

Cons

  • Ride and Handling:

- Clarice Backus, 2011 Subaru Forester

big car, nice but terrible city gas mileage

terrible gas mileage. I upgraded from a honda fit because I needed more space to haul around my booth (I am an artists who does a lot of craft shows and needed a vehicle that could handle the weight) I expected the mileage to be close to the sticker (22city/27hwy) and seriously, total lies. I drive "highway" often, but the only time I saw 27 mpg was on a road trip (1400+ miles). I was regretting not getting the VW tdi diesel wagon, but now that VW was exposed for fraud regarding emissions, I am only moderately ok with choosing the subaru.

Pros

  • Interior Space: lots of room for humans and their things.
  • Seat Comfort: I sit long stretches in traffic, and the seat has many ways to adjust / support my back.
  • Cabin Noise: blocks a lot of the exterior highway noise & other car's stereos. pretty quiet when windows are closed.

Cons

  • Technology and Entertainment: stereo sounds terrible. hands free phone also has awful sound quaility, not for driver, but for those on other end of conversation. people keep asking if I'm outside in the wind, even if windows are closed.
  • Fuel Economy: seriously the worst gas mileage. I get between 18.4 and 20.2 mpg. most of my driving is in the city / traffic. I did go on a road trip (1400+ miles) and got 26-27 mpg highway, but have never seen those numbers at any other time

Love our Subaru Forester XT

The Subaru Forester XT version has a LOT more pep and responsiveness than the 2.5 litre engined Forester. Gas mileage suffers a little (we are currently getting between 24 and 28 highway and 20-24 in town) but the additional acceleration more than makes up for that. I like the AWD and the option to "manually" shift the car, and the S1 and S# gearing and suspension adjustment for windy roads or snow or rain. If you are really in the snow, you can select XMode which is like a four wheel drive mode for up to 25 miles per hour (it automatically drops out of Xmode above 24 MPH). Real leather seats. Nice stitching. Well appointed with dual air and heat. Heated front seats. HUGE sunroof with windbreak at front. Handles wonderfully.

Pros

  • Safety:
  • Ride and Handling:
  • Weather Versatility:

Cons

  • Fuel Economy: A Turbo charged engine is NOT going to be a gas miser.
