The Subaru Forester has evolved over the past 19 years from a quirky-but-practical boxy station wagon to a more mainstream rounded-off crossover. It continues to prize spaciousness, safety, and practicality, all important factors for compact-crossover buyers.

The 2017 Subaru Forester received a mild visual face-lift as well as more equipment. It’s still a very sensible, practical choice for anyone who needs all-wheel-drive mobility in an everyday crossover. But is that enough for the Subaru to climb its way up the ranks of the ultra-competitive crossover class? Find out as we put Subaru’s best-selling model to the test in our latest Why Buy? video.
