It makes sense that the Subaru Forester is the brand's best-selling model. On the surface it's a mainstream crossover SUV, but underneath that conventional exterior the Forester's traditional functionality and meaningful off-road potential (and, with the 2.0XT models, rally-car moves) make it a strong contender against many show-over-substance rivals in a very popular market.

1998 - 2002 Subaru Forester
3/4 Front Glamour 2002 Subaru ForesterMajor changes included:

The Subaru Forester isn't a sport-utility vehicle in the traditional sense. In many ways, it's much better than the small SUVs that have been recently introduced.
