See Why the Subaru Forester Stays a Steady Competitor to Compact SUVs in Washington

You want a stylish, AWD sport utility vehicle to be ready for rough weather; you crave a spacious cargo-hauler perfect for those weekends away; but you need a practical and efficient daily driver for your weekday commute in Washington, Canonsburg, Bethel Park, or Pittsburgh. What's a pining driver to do? If you love a Subaru, you know that there's no choice like the Subaru Forester. But if you're still browsing through your options, you do have quite a few to compare and test drive.

Subaru Forester vs Mazda CX-5

  • Four words: standard all-wheel drive. The Forester has it, the Mazda CX-5 doesn't
  • Forester's BOXER engine is optimized for performance, and gives you more horsepower at both levels of engine performance than the Mazda's 2.0-liter and 2.5-liter options
  • Like to travel heavy? The Forester gives you up to 74.7 cubic feet of interior cargo storage room. The Mazda CX-5 squeezes out only a max of 65.4 cubic feet

Subaru Forester vs Buick Encore

  • The pint-sized Buick Encore gives you just 48.4 cubic feet of interior cargo space--the Subaru Forester gives you 1.5x the storage area
  • Like a sporty feel? The Subaru Forester gives you a standard 170-horsepower 2.5-liter engine or a 250-horsepower turbo--the Buick Encore coughs out 153 horsepower... maximum
  • Even with more horsepower, more cargo space, and standard Symmetrical AWD, the Forester comes in about $495 less expensive than the Encore

Subaru Forester vs GMC Terrain

  • With 8.7 inches of ground clearance, the Subaru Forester can roll over most things in its path with ease--the GMC "Terrain"? With just 6.9 inches of clearance, it can't really tackle that much terrain at all
  • The Terrain does beat out the Subaru Forester in standard and available horsepower (182 - 301 vs 170 - 250), but the Forester edges out its rival for fuel economy, offering up to 26 mpg in the city and 32 mpg on the highway
  • Want value? Even though the Terrain only offers all-wheel drive as a pricey add-on, it still costs over $1,500 more than the AWD Forester
