The 2017 Subaru Forester ranks 8 out of 18 Compact SUVs. The 2017 Subaru Forester offers one of the lowest starting prices in the class, a competitive list of features, and the rarity of standard all-wheel drive. These make it a triple threat in the highly competitive compact SUV class.

Pros
Highest cargo capacity in the class
Roomy back seats
Standard all-wheel drive
Lots of available safety features

Cons
Bland interior styling
Below-average fuel economy

By:

One of the best small SUVs, the 2017 Subaru Forester is a good value, with remarkable interior volume, thrifty fuel economy, and top safety scores.
The Subaru Forester is a compact utility vehicle with wagon-like practicality and standard all-wheel drive. It has the capabilities of a crossover, the ride and handling of a car, and plenty of all-weather security and even off-road capability.

Pros
Good ride, enjoyable driving
Top-notch safety scores, systems
Spacious cabin with super visibility
Among the best CVTs around
Turbo adds speedy performance

Cons
Shift paddles only on turbo
No manual offered with turbo
Priciest models not all that premium

The 2017 Forester receives numerous updates, starting with wider feature availability, additional noise insulation and quicker steering response. The enhanced EyeSight safety system now has lane departure intervention and blind-spot monitoring with rear cross-traffic alert. Automatic high-beam headlight control is newly available, as are adaptive LED headlights and reverse automatic braking. Styling revisions include new headlights and taillights, plus a freshened grille and front end.

Pros
Airy interior with plenty of room for adults in both seating rows
Impressive fuel economy for an all-wheel-drive crossover
Optional turbocharged engine provides spirited acceleration
Above-average off-road ability

Cons
CVT may seem less responsive and refined than a traditional automatic
Doesn't feel as sporty around turns as some rivals
Cabin design and materials aren't especially noteworthy
Maximum tow rating isn't particularly robust
