Why Not the 2006 Subaru Forester?

Front seat support & comfort

Again, cramped and too small for larger people.

Fuel economy

Fuel economy not as good as the CR-V, though the more powerful engine was the reason.

Ride smoothness

The ride felt rather jarring, thought it was a manual transmission which could have contributed.

Driving position & visibility

The driving position, again, was very cramped and quite low. I had been used to driving a small Mazda sedan previously, yet I still felt low to the ground in the Forester.

This review was originally a two-car comparison review. Read the other half here.
