2020 Subaru Forester: Lowest Cost to Own Among Compact SUVs

Predicted 5-Year Cost to Own: $35,362

When it comes to compact crossover SUVs with an instinct for adventure, few rival the 2020 Subaru Forester. And none can match this Forester’s ownership costs, making it the 5-Year Cost to Own Award winner among compact SUVs.

The Forester is ideal for active individuals and families who need a smaller crossover that will diligently and efficiently serve their daily needs of commuting, yet is raring to take them where time clocks don’t exist. It’s just part of the Forester’s DNA.

As is the nature of Subarus, the Forester comes standard with all-wheel drive – the only such vehicle in its class. Add to that ample ground clearance of 8.7 inches, and the Forester is ready to tread where others fear. It’s also a comfort to drivers who simply must contend with slick, snowy roads and foul weather.

The Subaru Forester was fully revamped just last year. And while the former turbocharged model that we loved is gone, the standard 182-horsepower engine is respectable. It’s also fuel-efficient, earning up to 33 mpg.

Equally impressive is the 2020 Forester’s emphasis on safety. All models include Subaru’s EyeSight Driver Assist Technology that bundles features like collision alert, automatic emergency braking, adaptive cruise control, and lane-keeping assist. The Forester is proof that one SUV can be adventurous, efficient, practical and safe – all while boasting years of low ownership costs.
