Thanks to plenty of interior room and available turbocharged power, the 2012 Subaru Forester is a top pick in the highly competitive small-crossover-SUV segment.
- Standard all-wheel drive
- Roomy cabin with ample cargo space
- Comfortable ride
- Strong turbocharged engine on XT trims.
- Outdated four-speed automatic transmission dulls fuel economy and acceleration
- Unimpressive fit and finish.
