Subaru Forester

Price $31,995 – $42,595
Fuel consumption 7.2 – 9.5 L/100km
The Car Guide rating 83%(view ratings)
The fifth generation of the Forester sticks around for one more year with no major changes to report. Until the brand new 2025 model arrives, look for a naturally aspirated 2.5-litre four-cylinder engine delivering 182 horsepower. A more potent, turbocharged engine or a fuel-efficient hybrid option would have been nice, but at least there’s Subaru’s excellent AWD system and a rugged Wilderness model with increased off-road capability. The latter can also tow up to 3,000 lbs.
