2016 Toyota RAV4 vs 2016 Subaru Forester

The 2016 Subaru Forester seats five passengers comfortably and offers a standard cargo capacity of 974 litres behind the rear seats. A 2.5-litre four-cylinder engine making 170 horsepower and a six-speed manual transmission are standard, as is all-wheel drive – a Subaru-staple and segment advantage. The 2016 Forester also offers class-leading fuel efficiency, using only 9.6 litres of fuel per 100 kilometres in the city and just 7.5 litres on the highway. However, those numbers are replicable only with a Forester with an automatic transmission – and that configuration isn't standard. The 2016 Forester is available in two trims: 2.5i and 2.0XT. There are multiple options available as packages.
