Everyone knows that all-wheel drive is superior for off-road adventures. So, if you’re looking for the most capability, then you’ll want to go with the Forester where all-wheel drive comes standard compared to the RAV4, which offers it as only an option (and costs a whole lot more). Plus, the Forester stands tall with 8.7 inches of ground clearance, so you can go where you want – without second guessing.

Famed car experts, Kelley Blue Book, said of the Forester in its review, “A quirky-looking family favorite, providing excellent year-round driving confidence, a roomy interior and top marks in the areas of safety, resale and fuel economy.”

Additionally, The Car Connection, ranked the 2020 Subaru Forester #1 in the Small SUV category. The RAV4 placed 3rd.


Plush Interior

Comfort is important and every inch of breathing room matters when you’re exploring with friends and family. You’ll have more space inside the Forester with a passenger volume of up to 111.9 cu. ft beating the RAV4’s 98.9 cu. ft – that’s over 11% more space! Leg room is very important to passengers. The Forester offers 43.3 inches in the front and 39.4 inches in the rear. The RAV4 comes in at 41 inches and 37.8 inches, respectively.

The cabin also features high-quality, soft-touch materials and contrast stitching throughout, along with standard automatic climate control. And the second row even offers available heated seats, A/C vents, and USB ports to bring front-seat comfort to every passenger. Add to that the panoramic moonroof and you’re set to take on whatever road comes your way.


Advanced Driver Assist Features

When it comes to safety, most carmakers go all out. Subaru, however, goes further because there’s safety and then there’s Subaru safety. In fact, Subaru’s EyeSight® Driver Assist Technology has been shown to reduce rear-end crashes with injuries by up to 85%*.

Although the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration has yet to rate these 2020 models, it gave both 2019 editions its maximum 5 stars for overall safety. However, the Forester rated 5 stars in front passenger side crashes, and Toyota received only 4 stars.

Choose from these standard and available features:

  • Subaru DriverFocus
  • Blind Spot Detection
  • Rear Cross-Traffic Alert
  • Reverse Automatic Braking
  • Rear-Vision Camera
  • And More!
