Special features for 2011

For space and capability, the Forester is a winner. Consumer Reports named last year's Forester as its Top Pick for small SUVs, and with few changes to the 2011 model, it should continue to earn such honors. Like all Subarus, it features full-time all-wheel drive, and for 2011 the Forester earned 21 mpg city and 27 mpg highway fuel economy ratings from the EPA.
