Subaru Forester

  • tickExcellent off-road ability
  • tickImpressive ride and handling
  • tickLots of safety kit as standard

Subaru Forester SUV (2018 - )

The Forester is an impressively capable and practical SUV, and it’s nicer inside than Subarus of the past, too. The performance isn’t as impressive as in some hybrid rivals, but the ride and handling are good, and it’s got a tonne of clever safety kit.

Our expert review

See what our expert review team say about this car

We don’t yet have full running cost estimates for the latest Forester, so when it comes to resale values and service, maintenance and repair costs we’ll have to wait and see how it performs. Purchase prices, however, are competitive against other hybrid SUVs like the Toyota RAV4 and Honda CR-V, especially when you consider its capability off road and generous equipment levels. Fuel economy figures and CO2 emissions don’t look quite so impressive, though, lagging behind those rivals, and that’s before you consider that the rivals also offer two-wheel drive models that will be even more efficient.
