Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP), also known as "sticker" price, is a recommended selling price that automakers give a new car that is above the invoice price paid by the dealer. It is a price that does not include any options that can be added to a particular car style. When shown as a range, the prices are starting MSRPs, without options, for multiple styles for that model.
This price range reflects for-sale prices on Cars.com for this particular make, model and year.
Best Bets get above-average mpg, class-average or better reliability, class-average or better crash-test ratings, and our recommendation.
These city and highway gas mileage estimates are for the model's standard trim configurations. Where there are optional features, packages or equipment that result in higher gas mileage, those fuel-economy estimates are not included here.

When it was redesigned last year, the Subaru Forester compact SUV stayed nearly the same size outside, but became roomier inside. It also gained interior and feature upgrades, including optional high-tech active safety features like EyeSight, which uses a camera to control adaptive cruise control, precollision braking and lane departure warning. The 2.0XT version features a turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine. Forester competitors include the Ford Escape, Honda CR-V and Toyota RAV4.
