14. Subaru Forester
2018 Sales: 79,277
Vs. 2017: -9.9%
After flat sales for 2017, Subaru Forester sales dropped 9.9 percent in the first half of 2018, but that’s to be expected with a redesigned 2019 Forester scheduled to go on sale later this year. The current Forester was updated for 2017 with revised exterior styling, new driver-assistance technologies, added interior comfort and improved fuel economy, offered with either a 2.5-liter 4-cylinder engine or a turbocharged 2.0 liter. The fifth-generation 2019 Forester debuted in March at the New York Auto Show and will be the roomiest version ever offered with a 1.2-inch-longer wheelbase, more rear-seat legroom and rear cargo capacity. The 2019 Forester offers improvements in crash protection, comfort, quietness and driving dynamics, powered by an updated direct-injection 2.5-liter Boxer engine that produces 182 horsepower and 176 lb-ft of torque. Also standard is SI-DRIVE, which allows the driver to choose between Intelligent and Sport modes for throttle response.
