Very Impressive!
DM, 10/15/2017
I spent the better part of a year researching SUV's as I'm also the owner of a 2004 Tacoma TRD Off-Road. Having spent 13 years in that truck, I was getting a little tired of the stiff ride and poor gas mileage, but I need something that can handle some off-road as well as poor driving conditions in the winter. I was thinking of trading my truck for either a new Tacoma or a 4Runner, but really didn't feel like I'd get anything very different, especially from an MPG standpoint. Enter the Forester. My biggest concern was the available "get up and go" since I live at about 6100 ft in Colorado and frequently drive into the mountains where 10,000+ ft is common. The XT was an obvious consideration but the MPG of the Limited 2.5i was very enticing. After test driving the 2.5i up the local pass, I decided it would suffice. I've got 2000 miles on the car and many of them are mountain driving. No power issues whatsoever! I'll admit I'm not racer, but I usually go about 5mph over the speed limit and have really had no problem with acceleration or keeping the speed up at all with the 2.5i. If I could have gotten blind spot and RCTA on the XT without going all the way to a Touring model, I'd have probably gone that route (although I much prefer regular gas to premium). Anyway, the Limited 2.5i has a very comfortable ride and I'm averaging about 28mpg in town and 35mpg on the interstate...again, at real altitude! Also, I got to keep my truck! I couldn't be happier with my decision.
For my money, best in class

Review at 1000 miles: We spent the last six months researching and test driving for our first new purchase. We had a budget of $35k and the final three contenders were the BMW X1, Honda CR-V Touring and the Subaru Forester XT Touring. We live at altitude in the Pacific Northwest and are "outdoorsy" without needing extreme off road capability. We also take the highway up to fairly high altitudes for hiking and ski excursions. Coming from a fun & spirited but extremely noisy and uncomfortable Impreza, we were looking for a good blend of comfort and utility. Forester XT Touring satisfied these criteria with the added FUN factor that the CRV just didn't bring to the table. The Forester XT has *almost* all of the get-up-and-go of a WRX with off road capability and a far, far quieter ride. I find the CVT to be quite responsive, particularly in the Sport mode. Interior comfort is impressive; I'm 6'4" and 220 lbs, and have so far taken three 2+ hour trips behind the wheel, on highway and Forest Service roads. The cabin is quiet, with excellent visibility on all sides. While not quite the same in terms of luxury, at this price point, to get the AWD on the X1, we'd have been dropping closer to $40k. I just couldn't justify paying the premium for mostly a badge. Only qualms so far is the entertainment suite: Starlink is basically useless aside from Pandora. Navigation combined with Sirius XM traffic is quite useful. Eyesight suite is powerful, useful and intuitive and is what ultimately swayed our purchase. Considering our Impreza lasted reliable 275k miles with strict maintenance, I am confident that the Forester XT will be reliable for years to come and serve our needs well.
Better than Expected
Mark in the North Georgia Mountains, 5/1/2018
We purchased a base model 2018 Forester as an economical everyday/trip vehicle to replace our 16 year old Mazda hatchback. We needed something with a little more room, but was still economical to own and operate. Another requisite was a manual transmission which is getting harder to find outside of sport models, but was still available in the Forester. This is our first Subaru, and we hope their reputation for durability and reliability are warranted. The vehicle has so far (1600 miles and about a month of use), proven to be better than expected. The interior comfort, quietness of the cabin at speed, ride quality, ease of entry and exit, storage space, and fuel economy have all been excellent. The fuel economy has been a surprise (over 29 mpg combined), in that we exceed the EPA estimates for the model without really trying. The manual 6 speed shifts well and the engine has plenty of power and torque for everyday driving. It has a roomy and comfortable back seat capable of long trips with little trouble. The only criticism so far is that some of the interior materials seem to have hard plastic finishes. The base infotainment stereo unit has an excellent sound and easy Bluetooth connectability, as well as great radio reception, and shockingly, a CD player for us old folks that like such things. The standard backup camera comes in handy for parking in tight places. It handles well on our mountain roads with some expected body lean (for the class of vehicle), and tracks well through the curves. The turning radius is excellent for a vehicle of it's size, for great maneuverability in tight spaces. The all wheel drive and ground clearance will come in handy for exploring the Forest Service roads around here, and when the snow is an issue. Overall, we are very pleased so far with the purchase.
Ooh ooh got my first Subaru
Average Joe, 10/10/2017
It was time for a replacement for my Jetta TDI. Living in New England it is four wheel drive or walk home. I am a retired businessman living on a fixed income so getting the best value is important. I narrowed the search to a Kia Sorento and the Forester. Both were impressive on the test drives with the Forester edging out the win by being tighter and quieter. The layout of the cockpit was better in the Forester and I was able locate and understand marginally better. Once I began driving I became more impressed with all of the aspects of the Forester. It does things for me like; reminding me to stay in my lane, put my brakes on to slow properly, eyes in the back of my head with the camera. It is not going to win a drag race but I can merge into traffic with no problem. Bottom line is, It feels solid and drives the miles in an honest and straightforward way. I am actually looking forward to snow season this year.

2018 Subaru Forester video

BRYN MACKINNON: I'm Edmunds editor Bryn MacKinnon, and here's a features rundown of the 2018 Subaru Forester. The Forester returns mostly unchanged for 2018, and that's a good thing. It offers a lot more off-road abilities than competing vehicles, with few drawbacks in return. For maximum bang for the buck, we recommend the 2.5i Premium trim, but if your budget can stretch, we like the 2.0 liter turbo engine that comes with the top models for its strong performance. The elevated ride height and standard all-wheel drive make the Forester a great choice for adventure-bound owners or those who live in inclement weather areas. There's a noticeable amount of body roll when cornering, but the Forrester remains composed and very controllable nonetheless. It does remind you, however, that it is less sporty and more off-road capable. There's plenty of cargo space in the back, but we wished the rear seats would fold flat into the floor. Like it's Honda and Toyota rivals, the Forester comes up short in terms of towing capacity against the Ford Escape. Taller passengers are easily accommodated in either the front or rear seats, and even the large sunroof won't affect headroom much. Most interior pieces are attractive and nice to the touch, but on the whole, other SUVs offer more refinement and feel a bit more solid. The newer infotainment system has a sharp display, and most features are easy to use. On top of that, it gets points for the EyeSight suite of advanced safety features. On the downside, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto are not available. The driver's seat may be uncomfortably high for some, giving the impression that you're sitting on, not in, the car. Visibility is great, though, and it's easy to maneuver in tight spaces. Subaru Forester's top competitors include Honda CR-V, Mazda CX-5, and Kia Sportage. The bottom line, if your adventures take you well off the beaten path, the Forester is a great choice, when pitted against more commuter-focused rivals, but you may be disappointed if performance and interior quality are your top priorities.

Subaru Forester vs. Honda CR-V

It's hard to beat the Honda CR-V's combination of practicality, comfort and fuel economy. Introduced in 2017 as an all-new model, it impresses on many levels. The size of its cargo area is tops in the class, though the Forester offers more space in the front seat than does the CR-V.

Subaru Forester vs. Mazda CX-5

The Mazda CX-5 took a big step forward with its comprehensive refresh in 2017. Its interior appointments and driving dynamics lead the class, and backseat space is more generous than in the Forester. The CX-5's cargo area, however, is a touch smaller than the Forester's. The CX-5 is the driver's car of the segment..

Subaru Forester vs. Toyota RAV4

The Toyota RAV4 is rather carlike in the way it drives and has a much larger cargo area than does the Forester. However, the RAV4's ground clearance is among the least of any in the compact SUV segment. It is nevertheless a popular choice, with an enviable blend of utility and usability. There's no optional engine in the RAV4, though, while the Forester offers an assortment of powerplants.

FAQs

Is the Subaru Forester a good car?

There's a lot to recommend in the 2018 Forester, thanks to its standard all-wheel drive, a spacious cabin with excellent outward visibility, and a large, versatile cargo area. The base engine won't quicken your pulse, but the optional turbocharged four-cylinder engine is among the punchier powerplants in the segment. As a bonus, base engine variants are available with a manual transmission. We've found, however, that the Forester's interior has room for improvement, due to a high-mounted seat and middling infotainment interface.

How can I get a Subaru Forester deal?

Edmunds can help you find a great local price on a Subaru Forester. See 2018 Subaru Forester deals and incentives in your area.

Does the Subaru Forester have good MPG?

Overall, the Forester does well here. With 28 mpg EPA combined (26 city/32 highway), models equipped with the base 2.5-liter engine and CVT automatic are the most efficient among Foresters and only 1 mpg shy of the class-leading CR-V's optional engine. Sticking with the manual transmission in the Forester makes its numbers slip to 24 mpg combined (22 city/28 highway), while Foresters with the optional turbocharged engine (paired to the CVT automatic) return 25 mpg combined (23 city/27 highway).

Does the Subaru Forester have good resale value?

If you're ready to buy, you're probably wondering about the Subaru Forester's resale value. How much will a 2018 Subaru Forester be worth in two or five years — or whenever you decide to sell?
