What more is there to say about the 2014 Subaru Forester? This small SUV is just simply amazing! It seems like every week this car gets yet another huge award for one thing for another. If you keep up with our blog then you know that Motor Trend just recently named the 2014 Forester “Sport Utility of the Year”. And now, just a couple weeks after being named ‘Sport Utility of the Year’, Consumer Reports has come out and said that after testing all the new cars for reliability, the 2014 Forester has come out on top yet again!

We kid you not. Every year Consumer Reports analyzes all the new makes and models to see which ones are built the best and will keep you out of the repair shop. And sure enough, after a thorough examination of all the new cars, Consumer Reports had this to say about the Forester:

“The most-reliable new car in our latest survey is the 2014 Subaru Forester. This small SUV has done great in our testing. It has excellent crash test scores. And now it is the reliability champ. A true grand slam.”

Needless to say, all of us here at Hassett Automotive are proud to sell the best SUV on the market today. If you’re looking for a small SUV, be sure to stop by Hassett and take a new 2014 Forester for a spin!

Subaru Forester Named Best SUV by Motor Trend

Most of you probably already know that Motor Trend gives out awards every year to the best car, truck and SUV. They put each and every new car through the ringer to see which ones are the best overall. But what you may not know is that the 2014 Forester has been named the Sport/Utility vehicle of the year! And as if that wasn’t cool enough, this award gives Subaru the “hat trick” in the SUV category. In other words, Subaru has received this honor two other times, in 2009 with the Forester and in 2010 with the Outback (more than any other manufacturer). Well done, Subaru!

According to Motor Trend, “The redesigned 2014 Subaru Forester has better efficiency, added power, and increased cargo volume, without a significant increase in overall size. The new Forester provides a comfortable ride with a roomy interior. Its off-road capability is plenty for the majority of sport/utility buyers. It offers a lot of value for the money. And it accomplishes all this while still being fun to drive.”

Consumer Reports LOVES The New Forester!

When Consumer Reports speaks, people tend to listen. Why? Because Consumer Reports has long been known as the review company that is solely focused on giving real, down to earth and honest reviews to everyday people. That’s why we were so excited when we heard that Consumer Reports finally got their hands on a new 2014 Forester!

Here is an excerpt from their review: “The small-SUV category is like a rugged, rocky mountain that has proved difficult to scale for many hopeful models. For the past decade, the Toyota RAV4 and Subaru Forester had maintained a vigorous rivalry while scrambling for the top spot. But recent redesigns to the Ford Escape, Honda CR-V, Mazda CX-5, and RAV4 have reshuffled the class. Now the Forester has undergone its own redesign for 2014, and its lofty road-test score of 88 has left it alone at the summit with its competition far below.”

Needless to say, all of us here at Hassett are thrilled to see that the Forester is getting the recognition and praise it deserves! The new Forester has undergone a complete redesign on the outside, and the inside has been updated with technology that will make your life much easier.
