Subaru Forester 2.5 XT Turbo
Nobody could consider the 2005 Forester XT a performance machine. After all, it is a mid-size family SUV concentrated on comfort, but with a twist. The Forester 2.5 XT has a 2.5-liter turbocharged flat-four engine with 207 HP and extremely capable all-wheel drive.
And that all adds up to some surprising acceleration times. In fact, this car can go from 0 to 60 mph in just 5.7 seconds. Those numbers make it a competent yet inexpensive SUV with a stealthy design and great driving dynamics.
