The 2018 Subaru Forester ranked #5 in Compact SUVs. Currently the Subaru Forester has a score of 8.5 out of 10 which is based on our evaluation of 36 pieces of research and data elements using various sources.

Pros
Excellent cargo capacity
Spacious rear seats
Good mpg ratings, even with standard all-wheel drive
Many available safety features

Cons
Interior design and build quality trail some rivals'
Fewer tech features than rivals

The 2018 Subaru Forester continues to offer top safety scores, remarkable space inside, and all-round versatility; it’s still one of the best small SUVs, and a good value for money.

Pros
Fun to drive, good ride
Excellent safety ratings and systems
Good outward visibility
Standard all-wheel drive
Peppy Turbo option, CVT among the best

Cons
Front seats small for some
Priciest trims still not that premium
No manual gearbox for turbo engine
Paddle shifters only on turbo

For 2018, the Subaru Forester offers a new Black Edition trim package that adds black-finished wheels, body trim and grille. The interior also receives black cloth upholstery and black gloss dashboard trim. Limited trim levels also get a new cargo area cover, while Touring trims now include Subaru's EyeSight safety package as standard along with automatic high beams and reverse automatic braking.

PROS
All-wheel drive comes standard and doesn't sink fuel economy
High ground clearance offers better than average off-road ability
Airy interior with plenty of room for adults both front and rear
Optional turbocharged engine makes Forester very quick

CONS
Modest tow rating limits overall utility
Cabin design and materials are just average
Handling isn't as sporty as some rivals
CVT feels less responsive and refined than a traditional automatic

The new Peugeot 5008 departs from the MPV styling of the old model, instead, it’s chosen the SUV look that’s proven so irresistible to buyers, while inside you get the latest incarnation of Peugeot’s i-Cockpit design language.

Pros
Looks interesting
Interior is impressive for class
Generous standard equipment

Cons
Not that exciting to drive
So-so practicality
Top-spec models are

By: 
carwow.co.uk

The new Peugeot 5008 represents an oh-so-Gallic salvo in the fight for buyers in the medium-to-large SUV segment. With its sharp design, sharper pricing and extensive equipment list, is it enough to lure buyers away from more mainstream models?

Pros
Gorgeous interior that oozes premium
Extensive array of included features
Sharp styling
Comfortable ride
Spacious boot
Oodles of torque from the 2.0-litre diesel

Cons
Third row is best saved for short trips
1.6-litre petrol is not the punchiest unit
