When it arrives this fall, the new Subaru Forester will be the best compact crossover on the market you can get. The familiar styling and other low-key specs hide the Foresters true form as one of the best products that Subaru or any of its competitors has put out in quite some time.
It’s a culmination of a number of factors: a brand new 2.5-liter engine finds its home, a new transmission, new driving modes, a new platform and an important new driver safety feature that puts everyone else to shame..

The all-new 2019 Subaru Ascent is a solid return for the brand to the three-row SUV class. In addition to familiar styling that still adheres to the automaker’s design language found in its popular smaller SUVs/wagons, the Ascent upholds Subaru’s time-honored tradition of safety, practicality and affordability. Its interior quality stands out, its noise-canceling abilities are at luxury-class levels, and its standard all-wheel drive and EyeSight safety suite make it a competitive entrant to an already competitive field in a way the ill-fated Tribeca never was.
Which: Sure, OK, great. But I’d like to draw your attention to one feature in particular that seems especially pertinent on National Drive-Thru Day: the awe-inspiring 19 cupholders this thing has.
