The car is in excellent condition, and has safety features for a family. I definitely would recommend Subaru Forester Premium AWD to my family and friends, from San Jose, Ca.

Roomy with great visibility. More road noise than other comparable cards. The drivers window did seem like it closed properly. Great cargo space. Constant noise of transmission.

Back Seats Ranked 2019 Mazda CX-5 Signature AWD worse.
"Back seats in the CX-5 are fine for 2 people, but 3 in the back would not be comfortable for long trips. The USB outlets in the CX-5 are in the middle armrest, so I dont think Mazda intended the back seat to be used extensively to seat 3. The Forester was had plenty of room for 3 in the back."
Would Buy Ranked 2019 Mazda CX-5 Signature AWD better.
"The CX-5 felt like a luxury vehicle that is fun to drive and noticeably more quiet and more powerful. Theres nothing wrong with the Forester, its just kind of ho-hum in comparison."

2019 Subaru Forester 2.5i Sport AWD Review
VikGranger says:
Its a good looking car overall. The field of vision from the operator standpoint is outstanding. The windows and windshield surface areas provide a great panorama. The interior of the sport model is very nice and has a good look. I could not really gage the performance bit the vehicle. The sales consultant was not very facilitative and we only drove around high traffic retail areas with lots of stop lights. The CVT did not seem as smooth as I expected; I thought I sensed shift points.
