What it is: The Forester is a compact SUV with standard all-wheel drive. It offers a suite of active safety features called EyeSight, which uses cameras to provide adaptive cruise control, precollision braking and lane departure warning.
Most models use a 2.5-liter horizontally opposed four-cylinder engine, while the 2.0XT trim level uses a turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder. Competitors include the Ford Escape, Honda CR-V, Nissan Rogue and Toyota RAV4.
A new Black Edition Package is available on 2.5i Premium versions and includes adaptive LED headlights, 18-inch black alloy wheels, black exterior and interior trim, and black cloth seats with simulated leather bolsters. The available EyeSight safety system gains automatic high-beam headlights and reverse automatic braking.
