Forester's numbers are impressive again, considering it needs a complete remodel. The Forester was scheduled to get a redesign for the 2024 model year, but it's a carry-over with no changes. It's looking like a brilliant decision by Subaru Corporation.
Subaru of America had six models that were up in percentage of increase in October compared with the same period in 2022. The hot Forester led all models and is the number one selling model in Subaru of America's all-wheel-drive lineup.

The Subaru Forester, surprisingly, is the hottest model, and it needs a remodel, but don't tell compact SUV customers. Forester has been the number-one model for four consecutive months.
Just as in July, August, and September, the 2023 Subaru Forester compact SUV is again the number-one selling all-wheel-drive model for Subaru of America. Forester was the top performer by volume in October for the fourth month, with 15,479 model sales and an increase of 29.5 percent over October 2022.
The 15,479 Forester models delivered to customers compared with 11,954 in October 2022. Forester is now up 33.4 percent in the first ten months of 2023. Forester has 121,824 models sold in 2023 and remains in third place and inches closer to the new Crosstrek.
The Forester's 121,824 models sold in 2023 are just a short distance from the Crosstrek, with 128,400 models sold in the first ten months of 2023.
