Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

Subaru has made adaptive LED headlamps and automatic high beams standard across the Forester lineup for 2021 while the Limited model now comes with a seven-speed manual mode for the continuously variable automatic transmission (CVT). A new rear center-console storage tray has been added to all but the base model.

Pros
Thoroughly practical,
roomy interior,
comfortable cruiser.

Cons
Slow acceleration times,
boring exterior styling,
base model is quite basic.

Pros
Standard all-wheel drive
A full complement of driver assist features are standard
Enhanced off-road capability thanks to better-than-average ground clearance
Generous cargo capacity

Cons
Engine is underpowered
Modest tow rating limits maximum utility
