Car Review - Subaru Forester 2.0 XT (A)
The latest Forester remains fun-to-drive and potently powerful with its force-fed powerplant, but doesn't get away scott-free at the fuel pumps.

The Subaru Forester was facelifted on May 2016.
Read our review of the facelifted version.

If you bought the naturally aspirated version you've bought the wrong Forester.
Review after almost 3 years of ownership of my Forester XT. Changing to this after my FD2R took me awhile to get used to. I insisted on getting the boosted XT version to keep some semblance of "Performance". I've also tested the naturally aspirated (NA) version of this car and its a car you drive with a long face :( there's nothing special about it. The vehicle is quite well specced with a powered rear lift gate, keyless entry, integrated sat-nav, Harman Kardon infotainment system, motorized sunroof and front seats, dual zone climate control and even the hood is on dampers so you don't have to lift/prop it up. Its great fun to drive especially when driving up north, its got the best 'power to $$' ratio of its segment. The engine is quite punchy especially if you're stepping on it enough that the turbo can generate boost, the CVT transmission keeps the power delivery smooth and constant although its a tad retarded and underwhelming at times. The Forester XT will easily run till 230km/h, but do invest in a good engine oil cooler to keep those temps down. Ride quality is really comfortable though it could have been improved with a firmer suspension setup.Sound insulation is adequate for Singapore roads due to our speed limits and more crowding but road noise gets more noticeable when you drive up north on road trips. The styling both inside and out could be seen as plain but its non-offensive and you could say its 'evergreen' as it'll still look good even after it's next generation goes on sale. IMHO I feel the SJ generation Forester still looks better than the new 2019 SK Generation ones.

Great drive. AWD makes the difference (FNA)
The Forester's drive is very engaging. I stretched my budget from a Korean 1.6 sedan got a FNA for 89k+ and it was worth it. AWD and boxer makes a difference. The forester seriously corners like a sedan and is very agile for it's size. Turning radius is comparable as well. Engine is powerful even for the FNA. Can overtake on expressway easily. Sound proofing is superb, makes for a quiet drive. FC is decent as well. 10 to 12km/h depending on mood and route. Can't comment about reliability yet as have only owned the car for less than 2 months.

A vehicle which is meant to be driven...
The Forester XT is a reasonably powered vehicle for the roads. Although, there is no jet thrust feel during acceleration and when the turbo kicks in. It is quick and nimble. The direct injection turbo and the cvt is quite perfect for Singapore roads, where is it smooth enough without much lag. At the same time fast enough when the power is summoned through the accelerator to speed up the wheels! It might not be the most stylist SUV, might not have the most features, gadgets and best trim in the cabin. But it is certainly one vehicle that is very nice to drive. In fact, will be pleasantly surprised...

Reliable Value Worthy SUV (FNA)
First timer in upgrading to a SUV, and glad that I invested in Subaru. The drive was engaging, and sound insulation was there. Fuel consumption wise so far seems to be right as paper. Though there was no rear aircon but for a 5-seater SUV, the front air-con cool down the vehicle nonetheless effectively. The only downside is expectedly, the start-up is slow but as soon as you pick up speed, it is fine to me.
