Forester is Gold Star Car - Wheels Magazine review

Date Added:

Subaru’s Forester XS premium has been named Wheels Magazine’s pick for the 2008 Gold Star Cars Compact SUV category.

Forester was ranked ahead of Mitsubishi Outlander and BMW X3 3.0D – both of which cost between $4000 and $36,410 more than Forester.


Wheels journalist John Cadogan wrote: “Strong resale and nominal insurance costs are augmented by light fuel bills – less than the Outlander and diesel BMW.

“The fact the Forester offers an outstanding driving experience just sweetens the deal. This is the cheapest way into a good SUV; buy without regret.”

In the July issue of Wheels, Forester is ranked third due to a data entry error, which meant that it was not awarded the correct points for its 3 year/unlimited kilometre warranty. 

With the full points awarded, the Forester moves from third to first place in its class. Results can be viewed at the Wheels Magazine website 

A correction will be printed in the August edition of Wheels.
