BEST FAMILY CAR
When Subaru updated the Forester last year, they increased the size of the rear door openings. They also straightened the actual shape of the rear door, so that you’re not fighting that frame when inserting a child seat, or when you’re retrieving Junior or buckling him in.
Want protection? The Forester scored the highest-ever rating for sheltering children in Europe’s standard test for passenger protection.
The trunk now has a maximum width of 51.2 inches. That might not seem like much at first, but when you load larger items without needing to tilt them, you’ll notice — and appreciate — it.
