96. SUBARU FORESTER
SUBARU quietly builds some of the most robust SUVS on sale anywhere, and has developed a small and loyal following off the back of it.
The Forester is a typical Subaru product in that it features symmetrical all-wheel drive and a flat-four ‘boxer’ engine to give it a relatively low centre of gravity and excellent off-road ability.
On the downside it’s expensive to buy, not terribly economical and a touch bland to look at and drive. Price range: £26,495-£32,495 Our pick: 2.0D XC (£28,495) Engine: 2.0-litre 4cyl diesel, 148bhp Transmission: 6-spd manual, permanent 4x4 Top speed: 118mph Economy: 47.9mpg CO2: 148g/km
