2015 Subaru Forester 2.0XT Touring 4dr SUV AWD (2.0L 4cyl Turbo CVT)


We've had this car for 8 weeks, bought to replace our 2004 XT. It's astounding how far technology and design has improved. The car is so much more comfortable than the 2004 , especially for 4 passengers. The Forester greenhouse has been preserved, which makes it one of the easiest cars to drive. The Eyesight system , with adaptive cruise control, object detection and automatic speed reduction works extremely well and very smoothly. The ride is a bit hard, not unexpected in a AWD small SUV with lots of ground clearance and sport rims and tires. The touchscreen MMI is simply awful...I cant believe Subaru fell short on this while doing so well on everything else.

Best Features

Improved 2.0L turbo boxer engine...33 MPG on the highway, 27 all-around. Amazing acceleration when you want it. Interior compartment visibility and comfort are outstanding. Rear cargo area continues to be best-in-class. Eyesight, Adaptive cruise control function even better than advertised..a great feature on long trips, especially. LED proximity illumination on outside mirrors turns out to be a great feature when approaching your car in the dark. Rear power lift gate works well.

Worst Features

Touch screen Nav/ MMI..its so bad in design and function I can't think of how to fix it, except: See Audi MMI.
