What are the fastest-selling cars and SUVs? The 2021 Subaru Forester is now the third-fastest-selling compact SUV. A new study from iSeeCars says the average number of days to sell for all new vehicles is 46.2 days. The Subaru Forester takes almost half the time, just 23.6 days, to move off dealer’s lots.
The Subaru Forester is the Camden, N.J. automaker’s fastest-selling model in the lineup for a reason. Forester is consistently ranked high for its standard all-wheel-drive, excellent visibility, top safety crash scores, utility, fuel economy, and cargo-carrying ability.
The Forester is in high demand and the number three fastest-selling compact SUV behind two other small SUVs, the Toyota RAV4 (21.9 days) and the all-new Ford Bronco Sport (21.7 days). You can check out the top twenty fastest-selling new cars in 2021 here.

The Forester compact SUV leads the Outback crossover/wagon (11,784 units sold in January) by 1,423 units.
