2010 Subaru Forester
The 2010 Subaru Forester, redesigned last year, rides smoother and looks better than ever before. Its standard all-wheel drive system, spacious rear seat, and low base price make it a great value in its class.
Whether you’re going on outdoor adventures or family road trips, the Subaru Forester delivers. It’s not the most luxurious compact SUV, but its downright fun to drive and comes with plenty of utility, including a particularly spacious rear seat.
2010 Subaru Forester interior
Forester is a reasonably priced alternative to compact SUV bellwethers such as the Honda CR-V and Toyota RAV4. It’s noisier and less refined than those rivals, and its interior ambiance is a step behind that of other recently redesigned crossovers. Also, Forester offers good fuel economy for highways and city driving, and lots of features for the money, with the 2.5X and 2.5X Premium being the strongest values.
2010 Subaru Forester back
The Subaru Forester’s $20,295 base price is one of the lowest in its class. On top of that, it’s the only SUV in its class to come with standard all-wheel drive. That makes it a great deal, especially if you live in snowy or rainy climates. Reviewers’ only complaints about the Forester concern its inconsistent materials quality and lack of high-tech options.
At 20/27 mpg city/highway, the Forester’s fuel economy is only about average for a compact SUV. Excellent city and highway vehicle, which you can use every time and everywhere. Several SUVs do better, but nearly all of the cost more than the Subaru – and none of them come standard with all-wheel drive (which can add at least a thousand dollars onto a car’s base price). Adding all-wheel drive will also likely decrease fuel economy, since the system adds extra weight.

If you buy this SUV, you will have the experience of a good deal of body roll and under steer when tackling highway entrance ramps and conducting lane-change maneuvers. The suspension is very soft—making a lot of shuddering noises over our rough Michigan roads—and is slow to react, which makes the Tribeca drive much larger than it actually is.

In this case, the Outback has gotten the better end of the deal; here, the thick eye-browed wheel arches, wide-eyed headlamps, and general musculature, make a lot more sense. Adding to this wagon-ized Legacy’s bodywork are such bush-whacking filigree as a toothy lower front valance, side rocker cladding, and a standard roof rack featuring pivoting cross bars which either link the side rails or fold back to reduce wind resistance and aero-noise. Underneath, ground clearance has risen to a lofty 8.7-inches.
