The 2015, 2018 & 2014 Subaru Forester model years are currently the best values.

On average, expect to pay only 61% of the original cost with 67% of the vehicle's lifetime remaining for a 2015 Forester. That gives it a Net Used Value® score of 6.11 which factors in annual maintenance costs, price decline, reliable years left and available inventory.

Also consider the 2018 & 2014 Forester model years. Those currently have a generally low risk of any significant depreciation over the next several years.
