The Best Used Japanese SUVs on a Budget Aug 22, 2017 by Jet (Driver Weekly)
2013 Subaru Forester 2.5X
Ending the third generation of this Japanese SUV, the 2013 Subaru Forester 2.5X is incredibly reliable and another Top Safety Pick. Subarus are known for their rugged performance on rural roads and rugged terrain, and the 2013 Forester is no exception. It stands out from the other options on this list with standard all-wheel drive and the five-speed manual transmission, although a four-speed automatic is optional.
The Forester has 30.8 cubic feet of cargo space behind the rear seats, plenty of room for everything a family needs, and it can tow 2,400 pounds. The interior is nice and spacious so even adults can fit comfortably in the rear seats. You can even get reclining rear seats, leather upholstery, and heated front seats.
