SUBARU FORESTER
The new Subaru Forester is now built atop the new Subaru Global Platform. This brings notable advantages, including increased roll resistance compared to its predecessor. The new car also sports the EyeSight suite of safety systems, which include pre-collision braking, lane departure warning and lead vehicle start alert, amongst other assistance technologies.

Under the bonnet, a 2.0-litre unit generates 154bhp and 196Nm of torque, and is mated to a CVT that feels surprisingly like a regular torque converter, allowing all occupants on board can enjoy a peaceful and composed in-car driving experience.

The fifth iteration of Subaru's Forester is now based on the Subaru Global Platform, allowing it to be more agile, and yet more rigid at the same time. The new platform also aids greatly in its rolling resistance, something that was absent in its predecessors.

The car also breaks away from its preceding versions by ditching turbocharging, and it now comes with a naturally aspirated 2.0-litre that pushes out 154bhp and 196Nm of torque. Those with a disciplined right foot will be rewarded, however, with a refined and comfortable ride. External noises are kept well at bay in the Forester, allowing all on board to enjoy a peaceful and composed in-car driving experience. Add to that the fact that the CVT in this car comes across as natural as the usual torque converters, and you have a winning formula for this competitive segment.

But the Subaru Forester likewise hits hard when it comes to the cabin with a multi-functional steering wheel and use of high-quality plastics, while the massive glass roof also helps to give the car a bright and spacious ambience, emphasising the generous space for all passengers. Boot space meanwhile stands at 520 litres, easily swallowing several luggage and grocery bags. Knock the rear seats down and the hauling capacity will increase a couple of notches to 1,775 litres.

Add in the car's suite of safety technologies that include pre-collision braking, lane departure warning and lead vehicle start alert, and it is not hard to see why the Subaru Forester is our leader in the SUV segment.
