These are the crossovers we've driven since--and deserve a look:

2014 Chevy Equinox

The 2014 Chevrolet Equinox is every bit as solid, spacious, and well-equipped as cost-conscious families could expect -- and far more quiet and refined than many other models without a luxury badge.

The uniform may be military-grade, but the GMC Terrain's softer side shows up in its excellent four-cylinder gas mileage and Denali luxury.

The 2014 Jeep Cherokee plants a foot in both the crossover and SUV world--and only flubs the styling.

2014 Nissan Rogue

The 2014 Nissan Rogue gets mainstreamed in all the right ways, though engine noise and the teensy third-row seat are minor letdowns.

 

Of all these vehicles, the Forester remains the highest-rated vehicle here at The Car Connection. But how will we feel after a half-year behind the wheel?

Our Six-Month Road Test will take us from east coast to west coast, across deserts and mountains, and on regular Costco and Craigslist duty. We'll dive more into its CVT and its Sport Sharp mode, and lets its all-wheel drive help us pick a path around the country. We'll even run some head-to-head drives to a couple of the vehicles listed here.

While we're at it, we'll wedge in some gas-mileage runs, car-seat tests and other tasks to figure out if we've missed something in naming the Forester our Best Car To Buy.

Follow along for the ride--and connect with us below if you have a task or a question in mind for our six-month test.
