Consider the fact that Motor Trend recently named the 2014 Subaru Forester the MOTOR TREND Sport/Utility of the Year. This achievement is a spectacular gain for the vehicle as this year marks the second that the vehicle has earned the very same award. What’s more, Subaru is the first and only manufacturer to take home this designation three times in total.

Throughout the past six years of competition, Subaru has seen the 2014 Subaru Forester, 2010 Subaru Outback and 2009 Subaru Forester claim the winning title while the 2013 Subaru XV Crosstrek was ranked a 2012 finalist. In addition, Subaru is the only automaker to see back-to-back category wins.

The MOTOR TREND editorial staff conducted a testing process in three phases:

  1. A complete tech check and weigh-in followed by full track testing to determine braking, handling and acceleration baselines.
  2. Three days of road loops with a variety of road surfaces and traffic conditions, used to assess engine and transmission smoothness and responsiveness, ride and handling, ergonomics as well as wind and road noise. Meanwhile a dirt-track section evaluates braking control systems, traction and stability.
  3. Debate and deliberation of the judges cross the following categories:
    1. Engineering Excellence
    2. Design Advancement
    3. Performance of Intended Function
    4. Safety
    5. Value
    6. Efficiency
