Compact SUV — 2020 Subaru Forester
5-Year Cost to Own: $35,362
The compact SUV market is extremely competitive, but the Forester can boast because not only is it one of the cheapest cars to own — KBB also calls it out for having the best resale value in its class. Subaru introduced an all-new Forester last year as the roomiest version ever offered with its 1.2-inch-longer wheelbase, more rear-seat legroom and more rear cargo capacity, as well as improvements in crash protection, comfort, quietness and driving dynamics. EyeSight driver-assist technology is standard, and Forester Touring debuted DriverFocus safety technology that can alert the driver to fatigue or potential distraction.
