2014 Subaru Forester Video

In terms of power, fuel economy, comfort and practicality, the completely redesigned 2014 Subaru Forester can compete with the best in its class. Where the compact SUV plays its trump card, says Cars.com reviewer and two-time Subaru owner David Thomas, is offering standard all-wheel drive at a starting price less than $24,000 for the 170-horsepower four-cylinder version. If you like those numbers, avoid test driving — or falling in love with — the 250-horsepower, turbocharged 2.0-liter XT model. While it is a blast to drive, Thomas says, it'll also set you back an extra $5,000.

$5,000 isn't exactly accurate - you're talking base, manual transmission, to higher trim CVT with special features. If you want the 2.5L 4cylinder in the Mazda CX-5, for example, over the 2.0L 4cylinder, it's just under $6,000 if you use that same logic (in Canada, at least).

Be careful not to scare off potential customers - Subaru can use some.
