The Subaru Forester e-Boxer delivers space and versatility in a new, more economical package. Does that make it the car of choice for the school run?

Review
Firstly, the exterior is quite general for a SUV but the GT edition looks better with black spoiler and sporty roof fin and skirtings.
Secondly, the interior is very very spacious for the driver and all passengers. Leg rooms are generous. Front seats both automated with memory functions. Apple car play and Android auto enabled. Center Touch screen large enough though sightly reflective under bright conditions. Cabin drawer might be a bit small. All seats cushion are good and comfortable. Good center console with coin tray provided. 3 nos. USB ports provided. Good for 5 adult size passengers. The rear boot is spacious enough for any 4 mid size lugguage. Come with 12V adapter socket for day use of other equipments like vacuum. The tailgate is also automated.
Thirdly, the drive was good and stable . Tested a fast U turned and the car did not.Rolled much. Power is sufficient though it is mild hybrid unless you are a fast and furious driver. Good for family use. Looking forward to see it's fuel efficiency of 20% Saving as it's oil tank is only 48L . Lots of safety features of Eye sight , ACC, RWB, Blind spot warning etc.

In summary, witb the promotional price, it feels worthy of buying with so much safety festures and user friendly setups. However, was told that Casper Green was no stock. . .

What I like
Apple carplay and Android auto.
Thoughtful coin tray.
Interior with leather feel and spacious.
Memory seats.
Chrome handles.
Display size just nice.
Stable drive with min. roll
Eye sight and other safety features.
Some Fuel saving only as it is mild hybrid.
Knees airbags sys for front passenger and driver.
GT version.
Minimal.blind spots.
Sun/moon roof retractable.

What I do not like
Dash Drawer too small.
Rear USB flap flimsy.
No digital gauges.
Additional cost for GT version. Abt 2.9k.
Door slots pockets small.
No scuff plate for rear trunk bumper.

Review
I went to test drive a few SUVs, decided to go for Forester eBoxer. I like how the AWD handles the road, feels stable enough even on a rainy day.

I will post more comments after driving for a period of time.

What I like
Interior & Exterior styling
rear A/C
spacious
Memory Seats

What I do not like
have to top up a bit to get CarPlay & Android Auto.
