2016 Subaru Forester Real Gas Mileage: Pros
2015 4dr SUV 170-horsepower 2.5L H4
I drive mainly around town and average 26 overall. On a highway drive, I get around 33. My previous vehicle was a 2009 Escape V6 AWD, this is a definite improvement on fuel economy. I could rarely get 30 on the highway. Typically around 27. see full Subaru Forester review
