Subaru’s new generation Forester has taken top spot in a rigorous cover story comparison test published in today’s Carsguide in The Daily Telegraph.

Forester 2.5i-L rated four stars against three and-a-half stars for new Toyota RAV4 and the Mitsubishi Outlander.

Experienced News Limited motoring journalist Neil Dowling concludes: “It’s the great all-rounder and won’t give its owners any regrets so gets my nod.”

Dowling rates Forester a winner for technology and driving. Saying: “Only the Subaru is constant 4WD, the others driving all wheels only on demand.”

He adds: “The Subaru’s CVT is a better box with its faster engagement and its perkier petrol engine making for a surprisingly quick wagon.”

He continues: “Handling tests put the Forester as the most accurate through the bends. It holds its line better than the other two…”

“The X-Mode 4WD system in the Forester is brilliant and makes it the best allrounder…”
