The 2024 Forester

The 2024 Forester is an adventurous crossover SUV with a knack for city driving but is no stranger to off-road exploration. There is a lot of excitement packed into this car, and it remains affordable for families or on-the-go individuals. It is fitted with a 2.5L Boxer-4 engine, getting up to 182 hp and 176 lb-ft of torque. It also has a decent towing capability of up to 3,000 lbs. This compact SUV will go, go, go with great fuel efficiency to keep you on the road longer, at a combined 29 MPG in standard AWD.

Not to mention, the Forester comes with some great features and a unique design, with stunning accents for optimal appeal, the standard Eyesight driver assistance suite that helps to improve awareness and prevent accidents, and second-row folding seats for complete use of 74.2 cu.ft. of cargo space. Of course, there are other added benefits, like the available panoramic power moonroof, and the STARLINK multimedia system will keep you connected, entertained, and informed.

The Subaru Forester may have a lot packed into its base trim, but there are benefits and other features available for leveling up further. In fact, there are six trims to choose from; after the Base, you have the Premium, Sport, Wilderness, Limited, and Touring for the best comfort, convenience, and durability.

The 2024 Crosstrek

The 2024 Crosstrek is a super affordable compact SUV that has two engine choices: the 2.0L Boxer-4 and the 2.5L Boxer-4. The latter engine will allow you to tow up to 3,500 lbs, though the base engine has a max of 1,500 lbs. Either comes paired with an AWD drivetrain that'll get you a combined fuel economy of 29 MPG. New designs are in store over its predecessor, now with a deeper passion for off-roading. This powerful SUV is ready for more this year, and that is exactly what you’ll get.

Some special features are making heads turn for the Crosstrek, and it’s not just its sleek exterior design that’s making a splash. The Crosstrek has an 11.6-inch STARLINK multimedia touchscreen with everything you could want for connectivity. Plus, up to 54.7 cu.ft. of cargo space is available for road trips, DIY projects, sports gear, etc. Of course, with roof rails, you can take your bikes, kayaks, and so on wherever you’re headed next. Upgraded LED headlights give fantastic visibility—a crystal clear outlook even on the darkest or stormiest of nights.

Everyone is excited to get their hands on the Crosstrek, and there are trims to spare, with five levels to satisfy everyone’s desires. The Base, Premium, Sport, Limited, and Wilderness are kept within a budget-friendly price range, and they offer exceptional performance and special features that will set you apart from the rest of the herd.

The 2024 Ascent

The 2024 Ascent is a sporty three-row SUV able to handle the daily routine and those longer road trips with equal gusto. This SUV comes with the 2.4L Turbo Boxer-4 engine rumbling under the hood, giving you a max 260 hp and 277 lb-ft of torque to show you real power. The Ascent, like the Forester and Crosstrek, is standard with AWD and can get you an EPA-estimated 20 MPG in the city and 26 MPG on the highway. You can tow up to 5,000 lbs, too, so you can take large loads along with you.

The Ascent has many special features to offer its drivers and passengers, like all-terrain capabilities, a durable exterior, and X-MODE that provides excellent traction. There is so much space in the cargo hold, and by folding the third and second rows, you can maximize that space up to 75.6 cu.ft. It also has excellent leg and headroom for cozy drives, whether long or short. There is also availability for second-row captain’s chairs if you are open to seating seven instead of eight people—not to mention 19 cup holders that come standard for all trim levels.

There is so much to love, and with different trim options, you can find added bonuses like the panoramic moonroof, Harman Kardon audio system, and a power rear gate. The trims for the Ascent are the Base, Premium, and Limited for eight-passenger setups, or the Premium, Onyx Edition, Limited, Onyx Edition Limited, and Touring for seven-passenger setups.

The 2024 Outback

The Outback is the last of our 2024 Subaru SUV lineup, but it has certainly earned a first-place spot in our hearts with two powerful engine choices: the 2.5L Boxer-4 and the 2.4L Turbo Boxer-4. These have great fuel economy, with the former getting 28 MPG combined in AWD and the latter getting 25 MPG combined.
