Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

After Nissan made several driver assists standard and added some new packages for the previous model year, the 2020 Rogue carries over unchanged. However, every model does receive a small price increase and the hybrid powertrain has been discontinued.

Pros
Quiet and comfortable interior, fuel-efficient powertrains, capacious cargo space.

Cons
Far more show than go, dull to drive, obsolete infotainment with limited connectivity.

By: 
caranddriver.com

No significant changes for 2020

PROS
Comfortable seats and ride quality
Many advanced safety aids come standard
Roomy cabin and cargo area

CONS
Acceleration is weak and listless
Small, dated-looking infotainment screen
Outward visibility is poor
Underwhelming interior materials quality and design

The 2019 Subaru Forester is a well thought-out crossover SUV with exceptional space, a great ride, and standard AWD without a fuel-economy penalty.

Pros
Fantastic utility
Comfortable ride
Great safety tech
Thrifty for a crossover
Good value

Cons
Sun Belters might want FWD
Manual and turbo gone
Sport trim about looks only
Dowdy styling

By: 
thecarconnection.com

Completely redesigned for 2019
More powerful 2.5-liter flat four-cylinder engine
Subaru's EyeSight system is standard on all models
Increased passenger and cargo space
2.0-liter turbocharged engine has been discontinued

Pros
Standard all-wheel drive
A full complement of driver assists is standard equipment
Off-road ability with better-than-average ground clearance
Generous cargo capacity

Cons
Handling isn't as composed as it is in some competitors
CVT automatic feels less responsive than a conventional automatic
Modest tow rating limits overall utility
Only available engine is underpowered

By: 
edmunds.com

It looks visually similar to the last model, so has enough changed to entice buyers into the all-new Subaru Forester?

Pros
Loaded with safety and convenience features
Ultra-wide passenger door opening aperture
Full-time all-wheel drive system
Fuel efficient four-cylinder petrol engine

Cons
Archaic three-year warranty
12,500km service intervals
Higher starting price
