The Best Small SUV
By Bob on


2005 Subaru Forester X AWD 4dr Wagon (2.5L 4cyl 4A)


This is hands down the best small SUV available on the market today. Great performance and excellent MPG for an AWD vehicle. Drove all of the competitors extensively and NONE of them comes close to the quality/features/performance and bang for the buck of the Forester. Feels extremely safe and secure on the road, yet is very fun to drive and a pleasure to ride in. I have owned many vehicles, and this is by far my favorite.

Best Features

Extremely comfortable seats, suitable for long excursions into the great outdoors. High quality interior and intelligent layout. Flat fold down rear seats. Storage compartments everywhere. Superb handling in all weather conditions.

Worst Features

Would like privacy glass in rear windows. Other than that this is a well engineered and thought out vehicle with the perfect balance of performance and economy.
