The 2022 Subaru Forester compact SUV could be the hardest to find new model anywhere in the U.S., but there’s one state where it flies off retailers’ lots faster than any brand’s vehicle. A recent study from iSeeCars reveals the Forester is the fastest-selling new vehicle across all states in Maryland, where it takes 5.3 days to sell.

It’s selling fast because it’s affordable, fuel-efficient, and gets the highest safety ratings. Forester also offers excellent cargo space and all-weather capability with standard Subaru Symmetrical all-wheel-drive system and X-Mode for all-terrain performance.
