Expert Quotes:

21 mpg city, 27 highway (2.5X); 19/24 (XT)
U.S. EPA

We registered 22.7 mpg under lousy driving conditions
Boston Globe




With respect to fuel-efficiency, the 2011 Subaru Forester is about on par with—or within 1 mpg of—the four-wheel-drive versions of its rivals, such as the Honda CR-V or Ford Escape, though the Chevrolet Equinox and Hyundai Tucson, among others, have it beat. Turbo (XT) models get much lower mileage, however.

Thanks to its new engine, which bumps fuel economy up by about a mile per gallon all around, the Forester now gets better mileage than the Impreza, Subaru's compact sedan and hatchback on which the Forester is based.

We recently drove a 2011 model with the new engine and averaged 23 mpg overall in a mix of cold-weather conditions, so its likely you'll be able to meet those figures.

Conclusion

The 2011 Subaru Forester is respectable within its class, but not very green.

How does the
TCC Rating work?
The TCC Rating is a clear numeric rating value based on a 10-point scale that reflects the overall opinion of our automotive experts on any vehicle and rolls up ratings we give each vehicle across sub-categories you care about like performance, safety, styling and more.

Our rating also has simple color-coded “Stop” (red), “Caution” (orange),
or “Go” (green) messages along with the numerical score so you can easily understand where we stand at a glance.

Our automotive experts then also collect and show you what other websites say about these different aspects of any vehicle. We do this leg work for you to simplify your research process.
