The Subaru Forester is the safest small SUV you can buy. Like most of the vehicles in this roundup, the Subaru Forester is an IIHS Top Safety Pick+ because it crashes well and has technology to prevent crashing. It excelled in automatic braking, avoiding a low speed collision at 12 mph and a high speed collision at 25 mph.
Starting at $22,195 the Forester gets a respectable 32 mpg on the highway. Even if you don’t pay extra for the models with the crash avoidance features, the Forester still does well. For a buyer looking at safety first, the Forester is the small SUV to own.
