The Forester is a genuinely useful crossover with room, a view, and most important the utility

If you are in the market to pick the most exciting SUV ever made, the Subaru Forester is calling you!

Subaru Forester is a compact crossover SUV made by Japanese automobile manufacturer Subaru since 1997 in five different generations including First generation (SF, 1997–2002), Second generation (SG, 2002–2008), Third generation (SH, 2009–2013), Fourth generation (SJ, 2013–2018) and Fifth generation (SK, 2019-present).

The Subaru Forester, the jagged SUV competes with high-riding machines such as the Mazda CX-5, VW Tiguan and Ford Kuga. With four-wheel drive, a lifted ride height and empirical estate body, the Subaru Forester is just banging on. However, these days the Forester has matured into more of a traditional SUV, as fashion has swayed the other way.

Engines are Energetic and Ready to Touch the Sky

The Forester’s 2.0-Litre petrol engine sounds smooth and revs sweetly on the road, but it lacks torque and it’d be an unpleasant thing to pilot if towing a trailer full of horse. The boxer diesel is a much more relaxing option.

We all know about Subaru boxers in petrol form, but this is a first in diesel outfit. Don’t expect the usual turbo diesel traits though; the boxer has less lag and a way more instant hit. It sounds fascinating and likes to rev too, so you can hold on to gears for more time.

Subaru has done an amazing job on the engine, but not such a great one on the damping because the ride is too tempestuous at higher speed, which is astonishing. It will not matter to most Forester buyers, who are more rapt by its excellent four-wheel-drive and rugged durability.

This could be the most honest SUV out there. Picking up Subaru reconditioned engines can get the job if your engine isn’t working smoothly.

Interior, built to last

It’s not just about the looks, but the Forester is royal when it comes to the practicality and the comfort. The inside of Forester is very similar to the Subaru XV. That means build quality is imperious and it can match royal rivals for upmarket appeal.

It is not only the design which makes sense but, there are much more soft-touch materials to help lift the ambiance. Unequivocally, there are no complaints regarding the amount of standard kit, with all models are equipped with.

Air-conditioning, Bluetooth connectivity, heated seats and cruise control. XC and XE versions add climate control, a rearview camera, powered seats and xenon headlamps, while upgrading to Premium gets leather trim and sat-nav.

The modern Subaru Forester is fitted with a new 7.0-inch touchscreen, which is way more responsive than the old one. The standard audio set-up is a six-speaker system with DAB radio and single CD player. There’s a voice command system on all models but the base 2.0 DX diesel, while all models feature steering wheel controls to supplement the touchscreen.

The exterior of Subaru Forester, build to maintain

The Forester is 4,595mm long, 1,795mm wide x 1,735mm high. That means it longer than 4,524mm, 1,838mm, 1,689mm Ford Kuga and the 4,426mm, 1,809mm,  1,703mm Volkswagen Tiguan.

LED headlights, a reverse automatic-braking system, navigation, and Subaru’s Eyesight bundle of safety features including pre-collision braking, lane-keeping assist, adaptive cruise control, and lane-departure warning makes it really very practical SUV in the range.

It’s nothing more or less than what it promises to be. A comfortable ride, an elevated seating position, standard all-wheel drive, and available state-of-the-art safety hits the nail on the head too.

The Subaru Forester, A whole lot to love

These days, any car with quaint cabin design, compromised on-road dynamics, sluggish engines and a vaguely agricultural driving experience is simply zero. Keeping this in view, the Forester is built to offer decent performance and reasonable economy on the road.

It may be more capable off-road than many of its rivals. Three engines are offered in the Subaru Forester. You can choose the 2.0-litre petrol, a 2.0-litre diesel or a top-notch, the turbocharged 2.0-litre petrol. All the Subaru Forester engines have a distinguishing sound, and all are quite even.

That’s why, this is a car with lots of bells and whistles. It is a functional and moderately likeable proposition, with the superb appeal. No doubt, its comprehensive warranty and decent standard kit levels go hand in hand to describe its attractiveness to others as well, particularly those looking for a reliable and practical vehicle.

So, who’s up for the adventure?
