The Subaru Forester has enjoyed strong sales across the globe since its introduction and has been the recipient of several awards, including 4x4 magazine's 'Mid-Range SUV of the Year' for 2014. And with a five-star Euro NCAP safety rating, it's little surprise that Subaru is proudly touting this as its best SUV ever.
Drivers who choose the new Subaru Forester will now enjoy an advanced seven-speed lineartronic CVT transmission coupled with the powerful “boxer” diesel engine. The diesel Lineartronic version has been long awaited and promises an even more superior drive, with efficient transfers of power to deliver excellent ride quality.
Combined with the ‘X-mode’ hill descent control and symmetrical all-wheel drive, the transmission ensures that the Forester is at home on even the most challenging terrain. Tough on the outside, the Forester represents the height of refinement when you take a look inside the premium cabin. The 2016 Forester arrives fully equipped with the latest in-car technology, including a new state-of-the-art touchscreen display.

It's amazing just how much technology Subaru has managed to pack into the new Forester. Speed-sensitive power steering, a rear-view camera and lane change assistance all contribute to a smooth, stress-free ride, while USB and Bluetooth® connectivity ensure that your entertainment needs are met. From a safety perspective, the Forester works hard to earn its five-star Euro NCAP rating with airbags, seatbelt pre-tensioners, and whiplash-protective front seats.
Taking its cue from the new generation of the manufacturer's Impreza model, the grille of the Forester has been overhauled and the headlights have been given an upswept look. The result is a vehicle which projects an aggressive, predatory aura.
The benefits of the new design go well beyond the aesthetic, however. The reformed body shape allows for greater aerodynamics, while driver comfort is assured thanks to heated door mirrors, rain-sensing wipers and UV-reducing glass. Even the headlights are fully automatic.
On the inside, there's much to be thankful for, including an optimised seating position which contributes to an even more spacious cabin than before. Dog owners, in particular, will appreciate the amount of space to be found in the boot, with a maximum 1,577 litres of space. Updated trims and a new folding central armrest add a touch of luxury.
Whether you opt for petrol or diesel, the Forester delivers premium power, both on and off the road. The efficient range of 2.0-litre engines produces a maximum 350Nm of torque, while fuel consumption is a pleasant surprise, at 40.4mpg combined.
One of the main features of the new Forester is the optional X-MODE system. This sophisticated stability mechanism allows even the most inexperienced off-roader to feel confident behind the wheel, due to automatic distribution of power to each wheel as necessary.
