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
