    The Forester is still fresh off a redesign that had everyone singing its praises. After a week with a 2. Available with either an asthmatic or turbocharged boxer 4-cylinder, the Forester follows the traditional design style of Subarus past and offers understated or slightly aggressive versions of the same car, depending on your choice of powertrain.

    Pick the regular 2. The interior is still below par, and the infotainment system is one of the worst in the industry, but otherwise the Forester is a nimble, utilitarian, and—most importantly—very safe option in the segment. For my week with the Forester, Subaru provided me with the 2. Subaru has come very close to providing a perfect balance of performance and economy with its series of boxer engines, but a few small grievances prevent it from getting top marks. Not that the manual is perfect, either.

    But with only hp and lb-ft of torque, that fun is limited. Sadly this is made even worse with the 6-speed, where higher revs make the engine sound like it's really struggling.

    For more power, the turbocharged 2. Even with the lackluster CVT, this engine provides plenty of power and can motivate the 3,pound Forester to 60 mph in just over 6 seconds. Sadly, it has a relatively low tow rating of just 1, pounds, a figure shared with the base Forester. My time with the Forester failed to replicate its claimed 27 combined rating, and my averages were most often in the lower-to-mid 20s. Still, the Forester offered a nimble, agile suspension that was light enough for city and parking duty yet capable enough to tackle more aggressive terrain.

    All-wheel drive AWD kept things balanced, and the extra length in the wheelbase gained during the last redesign offered a composed ride even at highway speeds. The Forester offers a good balance for a reliable family and grocery hauler. When the Forester debuted back in , Subaru was still an underdog offering more performance than most people recognized. Now that Subaru has become synonymous with rally racing, the Forester has actually lost some of that edge.

    Yet it still remains the competent commuter with some off-road prowess it was always meant to be. Outside, this story is obvious. The current generation looks like someone blended the old Forester with a second-generation Escape—edges are softer, and the profile is somehow more generic. Inside, the cabin is awash in hard surfaces. The bulk of my time in Subarus was spent in the early s, and this looks only a generation ahead of those plastic landscapes.

    The fact that so many have praised Subaru for the interior improvements of late only speaks to how bad they used to be. Of particular annoyance was a persistent rattle coming from the panoramic moonroof, situated frustratingly above my right ear.

    That said, it was a problem Subaru was eager to fix, and I absolutely love all the extra light you get inside with this feature. It's a must-have option in my opinion. Seats look quite nice and fold flat in the rear with a one-touch mechanism for a full Leg bolsters are the big issue here, as they squish like an overripe avocado rather than supporting like a compassionate spouse. Tech is one area where the Forester truly lags behind the competition.

    While every Forester now comes with a standard backup camera—just added for —the screen on which it displays is one of the smallest, lowest-resolution setups in the industry at 4. The sight of it in the dashboard was almost comical to some passengers, who likened it to the postage-stamp screens seen on old console televisions.
