The Subaru Forester is a capable off-roader but most SUV rivals are bigger, cheaper and more fuel efficientread the full model review
This adds leather upholstery, keyless entry and start and sat-nav, but it’s a hefty price jump.
It's not a great drive, because this 2.0 petrol lacks sufficient shove for a car of this size. It's also very loud under any acceleration and you’ll be frequently stopping at the fuel pumps. For the price, it is best engine in the line-up, though, and the one we'd recommend if you really want a Forester.
