The perfect small SUV for adventuring

2016 Subaru Forester 2.5i Touring

I love the reliability and comfort of my Subaru. It is the perfect size for long road trips and camping adventures. It does great off roading, helping me get to some awesome locations. I often put my mountain bike in the back with the seats down and make it to trails in no time! I have put a lot of miles on it and have had no mechanical issues. It is the best vehicles I have owned.

Sheila the Adventuring Subaru

2016 Subaru Forester 2.5i Touring

The stock battery is very weak, we had to replace within the first year due to the car dying multiple times and not recharging itself. Also the lack of air vents in the rear is unpleasant in the summer. Other than that we absolutely love the car, very reliable with the new battery and is a great rock crawler just on street tires.

I love the automatic trunk opener.

2016 Subaru Forester 2.5i Touring

I love my Subaru forester! It drives great on the beach and is the perfect family vehicle. It gets good gas mileage, and is very safe. Safety and comfort were priority. The trunk is big enough for a stroller and some shopping or groceries. The back can fit a car seat in the middle with enough room for passengers on either side.

Subaru 2016 Forester Review

2016 Subaru Forester 2.5i Touring

Very comfortable car, a lot of room for children. If you are going on a trip and need to bring a lot of things the seats fold down very easily and there is a ton of space. The car feels very safe and drives very well. I would recommend this car to anyone with children or anyone who likes to make a lot of trips.

All-Wheel Drive: Lifesaver

2016 Subaru Forester 2.5i Touring

The 2016 Subaru Forester I have had for about a year and a half now has been the best car I've purchased. It is extremely reliable and I have had no problems whatsoever. Living in Kansas, the all wheel drive was an important feature when making a new car purchase and it did not disappoint this past winter.

- Rebecca L

The car is spacious. More spacious than I would have thought.

2016 Subaru Forester 2.5i Touring

This car is one of the best cars on the market. It is insanely comfortable, stylish and safe. The metal on the car is a little thin so any little bump shows, but it is such a smooth ride. It can take potholes and speed bumps like a pro. My friends are always surprised that it handles so well.

- Kiley H

This is a great car for road trips, legroom and heated seats = a smooth ride.

2016 Subaru Forester 2.5i Touring

My car is great. The seats are comfortable and the storage space is perfect. It is very fuel efficient. We have a limited edition color so it is easy to spot in parking lots. The Bluetooth capability is very useful.we take road trips and the leg room and heated seats have helped a lot .

- Matthew G

Subaru really does love you back

2016 Subaru Forester 2.5i Touring

My Forester is reliable and comfortable. I have had it for over a year and I'm very happy with it. I've never had any issues with it. It's dependable and handles well in all types of weather. I am comfortable in the vehicle and I consider it the best vehicle I've driven.
