Spacious, safe for the family-oriented
The Subaru Forester is spacious with lots of leg and head room for the rear passengers. The ride feels smooth and safe due to the introduction of the automatic cruise control and lane departure warning through the eyesight system. The overall drive is refined and does not feel sluggish even though it's a NA engine (without turbo). The forester has also good ground clearance and does not roll when manoeuvring corners. The large windows also provides great driver visibility. Overall, enjoyed my ride.

Exceeding Expection
I have driven the forester for 8 months and have recently done my 10K servicing, here's my thoughts on the forester. I bought the forester after considering the price point, size, functionality of the car and after driving it for awhile I have to say forester lived up to it's reputation of the best AWD system in it's class. Ride wise it's very stable and even cornering at higher speeds exudes a level of confidence that is unmatched by most SUVs in the same category. Another noteworthy mention is the squarish and wide opening of the boot, loading cargo is not a problem. What I am impressed most, and maybe found irritated sometimes is the Subaru eyesight. The safety features like bling spot monitoring, cruise control is really useful, good job there to the car maker. But I find the rear traffic alert and AEB too sensitive to my liking, but that's life saving features and perhaps early activation is what mitigates a possible accident so though it can be irritating, I do appreciate the system. Downside is the head unit, it's not sharp and outdated and the sound quality is very average. There's no android auto and carplay and that's quite lame to me. The seats could use better lumbar and it will be good for long trips. Probably the most irate thing I can pick is the windscreen. I could not apply solar film due to the hindering of the eyesight system and that makes the car hot. I probably will install solar film at a later time.

Much better than expected
I'm writing this after about 4 months of driving the 2019 Subaru Forester Eyesight, and after the first servicing. Let me be honest about it -- I bought it for the price point. And it is well worth it, considering it is a full-sized SUV. So it doesn't have a top of the line entertainment system or all the other bells and whistles other makes are boasting about in their models. It is also far less expensive than any comparable sized SUV in the market. My previous car was a sedan, so the size and response took some getting used to, but I like the purring of the engine as you move through the gears. The Eyesight system also turned out to be very useful around tight corners, and the AWD is so stable I have no issues taking corners at higher speeds because it doesn't swing about like my old car used to. I've driven it up to Malaysia several times since, and it really drives like a dream. The boxer engine is smooth as silk, pickup is excellent and the power you feel when you press down on the accelerator is intoxicating. Since it's my first time driving a boxer engine, I found the engine a little rough at low revs in the beginning, but after I got used to it (and it got used my driving style), it disappeared altogether. Entertainment system is basic and there's neither Internet connection nor ApplePlay, never mind a multi-CD changer, but who cares? At the price I paid, I am more than satisfied with what's on board. The service provided to us at the sales point, after sales and during servicing was also excellent. The salesperson was not pushy, he listened and made suggestions, then let us decide what was best for our needs. He patiently explained the various buttons and options to me when I picked up the car and kindly provided follow up advice when I had questions after I had driven off. I really have no complaints about the car. This is really worth a look if you're in the market for a full-sized SUV and you don't want to pay too much above $100k.

A perfect car for family
Test drove the new SGP forester and I feel that this car is much more spacious as compared to their predecessor. Before the forester, having test driven the Citroen C5 aircross, Vezel, Outlander and the Peugeot 3008. Forester gained my trust and will be ranked in first place absolutely without any hesitation. Driving the flagship SUV from Subaru couldn't any better.
