The Ultimate Compact SUV by Texas Guy on 05/26/2013. Trim: 2014 Subaru Forester 2.5i Touring, Owned less than 1 year.
67
Pros: Only compact SUV to earn the "Good" rating on new, tougher crash tests; outstanding driving position & visibility; standard all-wheel drive; best gas mileage rating of any compact SUV; Eyesight package includes several outstanding safety features; simple, easy to use heating & AC controls; rear seat room & comfort incredible for a vehicle this size; great manueverability, tight turning circle; very quiet, almost no wind noise and minimal road noise; the new CVT much smoother & quieter than CVT in our Prius. Lots of room under the hood, thanks to the "Boxer" engine, so fluid and filters are easy to check. Very easy entry & exit, and lots of head room & leg room.
Cons: The Navigation controls could be improved and made easier to use, and the side bolsters on the front seats could be a little larger.
Overall review: Absolutely Outstanding - a home run for Subaru!
