2015 Subaru Forester 2.5i Touring PZEV 4dr SUV AWD (2.5L 4cyl CVT)


Anticipated buying a Rav4 since I am Toyota guy. My wife drives a 2011 Forester so I was not considering another Forester. I was so disappointed with the Rav4 and the CRV still has visibility issues ( and no BSM), I decided to give Subaru another look. What a difference between the 2011 and the new Forester. Subaru engineers improved almost everything except visibility which is still terrific even though it is a larger vehicle. The one thing that did not improve is ride quality. The new model rides more like a SUV than the 2011 but has better seats and a fairly quiet cabin. Gas mileage agrees to sticker which is terrific. We have had no issues with either of our Foresters.

Best Features
