2015 Subaru Forester 2.0XT: 23 mpg city, 28 mpg highway, 25 mpg combined (CVT)
EPA

up 5 mpg from last year’s Forester 2.5-liter with four-speed auto powertrain.
Car and Driver



With no powertrain changes for the 2015 model year, the Subaru Forester's fuel economy ratings are unchanged--and now that we've had a few thousand miles behind the wheel of the Forester XT, we can confirm its gas-mileage ratings are just about within reach.

Last year, the Forester inaugurated a new generation of horizontally opposed four-cylinder engines, combined with a new iteration of Subaru's Lineartronic continuously variable automatic transmission (CVT) in place of the former four-speed automatics. The tandem made it possible for Subaru to improve both gas mileage and performance.

For 2015, the base Forester 2.5i with the CVT boasts EPA ratings of up to 27 mpg combined. Direct injection in 2.0XT models helps them attain an EPA combined rating of 25 mpg. In our Forester XT Six-Month Road Test driving, we've measured just over 24.1 mpg in mixed driving--well within the EPA's suggested 10-20% variance off its combined figures.

Conclusion

A top combined EPA rating of 27 mpg puts the Forester in good stead with other compact crossover wagons.

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.
