  • With Subaru Symmetrical AWD on every Forester model, drivers won't need to pay extra to get the confidence and peace of mind that come with the capability to handle the toughest road and weather conditions. The Murano requires a significant investment to get to a trim with available AWD - almost ten thousand dollars more.
  • The Murano does deliver more power with its larger engine, but the toll it takes on fuel economy is very noticeable, making the Subaru Forester a more valuable and efficient option.
  • The Forester's 6-speed CVT provides a much smoother ride than the 2-speed CVT of the Murano.




  • With a  longstanding streak of IIHS Top Safety Pick ratings, the Forester has a solid legacy of incredible safety, and with the upgraded EyeSight® system drivers get even more autonomous safety features for even more peace of mind



  • The Subaru Forester offers more front leg and headroom than the Murano, as well as more passenger volume, making the Forester a more comfortable experience for driver and passengers.
  • The Forester's available luxury amenities, like leather appointed seating and other premium accents and comforts come with a lower overall cost, making the Forester the undisputed better value.
