2022 Subaru Forester Wilderness

2022 Subaru Forester Wilderness

Consumer Guide Automotive Here’s a factoid for you: Nearly 1 out of every 5 Subarus ever sold has been a Forester, and since its debut as a 1998 model, Subaru has sold more than 2.3 million of its popular compact crossover SUV. For the last several years, the Forester’s annual sales have been running in the neighborhood of 170,000-180,000 units in the US, and Subaru says those totals have been limited by production capacity rather than consumer demand. The current-generation Forester debuted for 2019, and for 2022 it gets a mild freshening, along with the addition of an outdoor-adventure-focused Wilderness model with improved off-road capabilities.

2022 Subaru Outback Wilderness

Consumer Guide Automotive The Subaru Outback essentially pioneered the concept of the modern SUV-flavored wagon when it debuted for the 1995 model year. Then as now, the Outback is based on a station-wagon version of Subaru’s Legacy midsize sedan. Its passenger-car roots give the Outback better on-road driving dynamics than the typical SUV, while the smart interior packaging, raised ride height, and standard all-wheel drive deliver SUV-worthy levels of passenger/cargo versatility and rough-terrain capability.

Best Small Crossovers

Best Small Crossovers

We don’t believe that the traditional passenger sedan is dead, but consumers have demonstrated an overwhelming preference for crossovers in recent years. Of the almost 15 million new vehicles sold in the U.S. last year, roughly half were crossovers or SUVs of some variety. Sedans–once the best-selling vehicles in the U.S. by far–accounted for around 2 million sales.
