1st gen Forester vs 1st gen RVR?

Recommended Posts

Just wondering as I do like both and wouldnt mind having either as a daily, obviously both a bit cooler than rivals cr-v/rav4 and cheaper than other small contempary 4x4s.

 

Dont mind if turbo or not, would actually prefer non turbo so I don't spend too much money on it, and maybe also auto so my Mrs can drive it lol. So reliability and a bulletproof drive train are important, as we all know ej20 are bulletproof lol but what about the 4g63 and Subie autos?

nah, 1st gen rvr is not a cut-down evo, go back a generation to a mix of chopped chariot chassis and galant vr4 drive train.

 

go for a forester

 

or 1st gen rav4 with 3s-ge beams

 

or 2nd gen rav4

 

:)
