The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
6.8
5.0
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2019 Subaru Forester is a well thought-out crossover SUV with exceptional space, a great ride, and standard AWD without a fuel-economy penalty. The 2019 Jeep Compass stays true to the brand’s off-road formula, but bends toward usability rather than capability.
