We head to Motor Image in BGC to look at the other heavyweight in this class: the Subaru Forester. A long-time Top Gear favorite, its ranking has slowly slipped due to the arrival of newer, more technologically-advanced competitors. But this is perhaps the mostperformance oriented car in the group, without giving away much in practicality and versatility. I tell AJ and Jen that the top-level XT variant is the pick of the bunch. AJ likes it—he says all his friends who own Subarus in the US, Japan, and Guam are very loyal to the brand. Question is, does Jen approve?
