Every year, Consumer Reports looks at every vehicle released in North America. Of these hundreds of vehicles, only 10 are listed as winners on their annual list. For 2020, the Subaru Forester was named as the top small SUV, beating out the likes of the Honda CR-V, Mazda CX-6, and the Toyota RAV4. This popular SUV is available now at our dealership in Redwood City, CA.

What Makes the Subaru Forester a Winner

According to Consumer Reports, the Subaru Forester is one of the better riding small SUVs in its category, and because of that, driving a Forester allows you not to feel road imperfections. This is ideal for both on-road and off-road driving. Speaking of off-road driving, the Forester is designed for true all-terrain capability with its high ground clearance and standard Symmetrical All-Wheel-Drive.

A Unique Design That Offers More to Redwood City, CA Drivers

Consumer Reports also mentions that the Forester's more boxlike design runs counter to the sleeker looks of other small SUVs. Because of that, the Forester offers better access to the SUV, better seat height, and larger windows for enhanced visibility.

Impressive Fuel Economy That Seals the Deal

Finally, Consumer Reports mentions that the Subaru Forester has one of the top fuel economy ratings in the small SUV segment. The current model of the Forester has an average fuel economy rating of 28 miles per gallon on the highway. This rating equals the Honda CR-V for the top ranking in the small SUV category.
