Best 4x4 crown goes to Subaru Forester

Posted by Freddy Morton

Drivers and owners of Whale caravan taps may be looking for a new 4x4 vehicle to tow their motorhome.

According to one magazine, the 2011 Subaru Forester is currently the best vehicle of its kind on the market, leading to the car being named the best 4x4 of the year.

The panel of experts at Total 4x4 magazine said: "The Forester does very good things without making a fuss of it. The combination it offers of quality, value, practical usability and driving talent makes it very hard indeed to beat."

Furthermore, they added that the Subaru model had always been top of its game, but the recent refurbishment and the revised petrol and diesel engines have made it the clear forerunner in the automotive industry.

The diesel vehicle has a 2.0-litre engine and returns 47.9 mpg combined.

Prices for the Subaru Forester start at around £23,070.

Additionally, the Kia Sorento was recently crowned the leading SUV on the market by Total 4x4 magazine.
