Subaru Forester Review 2024

Subaru Forester is amongst the breed of cars which first introduced a crossover SUV with all wheel drive employing the slogan “SUV tough, car easy” and is a complete utilitarian workhorse. With Forester Subaru made the first attempt of manufacturing a dedicated small 4WD. This compact crossover wagon-like 4WD, is redesigned with a more SUV-like appearance and got multiple revamps. The comfortable and versatile Subaru is crafted to go farther with symmetric all wheel drive and sophisticated engine consuming less fuel. It is a multi-terrain SUV which runs efficiently in all weather conditions providing superb handling and stable ride.
The Subaru Forester 4th generation compact crossover released by the Japanese manufacturer is bigger in every way than its sibling, with the improvement of cargo capacity and rear-seat legroom. Subaru offers standard all-wheel-drive, with the only engine choice of 2.5-litre flat-6 engine across its two variants: 2.5i Premium and 2.5i Sport. The powerful engine gives a maximum power output measuring 171 hp with a maximum torque of 230 Nm at 4100 rpm. Both variants of Forester get hold of revised sport oriented suspension which provides flatter cornering with maintaining performance. One specifically exclusive option on 2.5i and 2.0XT touring model is Eye Sight Driver Assist System. One of the thing Subaru has never done with Forester is chase styling and design fashion trends, Forester is no exception, it is more focused on style than substance. With a capacity to house 5 individuals, the Forester boasts an attractive 422-litre cargo space with the seats up, which is flexible upto a whopping 1481 liters with the rear seats stowed away. Its composed, controlled suspension and sophisticated 4-wheel independent suspension with Subaru's Symmetrical AWD system underlines the stability within this crossover under all driving condition.

Subaru Forester Interior & Features

Subaru Forester’s cabin is featured with a mix of materials that are soft or hard to touch with fairly conservative design. Hard veneered but highly adjustable seats with telescoping steering column gives a proper mechanism of better ergonomics while the ample space with the legroom and headroom mitigates the need to be cocooned inside. The steering remains light at slow speed but gets firm with the speed encouraging a punt on twisty roads. Front seats rear seats are also enabled to be give proper rest to occupant with rear armrest and legroom even while front seats reclined. Its interior design hews more toward sturdy than stylish-all right for a serious SUV. Subaru Forester also gets hold of a dedicated 6-inch touchscreen unit with navigation functionalities.

Interior Comfort

If comfort is being assessed then the cabin space of forester does not attain high scoring success though it is well managed in workman-like style. The dash board gets the germinated style from genes of old Impreza with hard feel but durable plastic. However driving comfort is optimized with ostentatious high elevated seat with enough legroom available. The easily accessible gearbox has got no clever electronics but the large lever next to handbrake accommodating to tough look. The spic and span instrument cluster is equipped with all default functionalities. Inside ambiance is made fresh with dual-zone automatic climate control which gives pleasure through whole drive. The mid-range model has sunroof giving the sky roof to your drive. The way the hood expands over the central A/C vents and houses a small navigation system, there’s no confusing it with an offering from any other manufacturer out there.

Interior Measurements

Alongside the standard capacity to seat 5 individuals, the Forester boasts an impressive 422-liters cargo space with the seats up, that extends upto a whopping 1481-liters once the rear seats have been stowed away. Its elevated stadium-type rear seating is oriented to enhance thigh support affording a better view, while the Forester's rear legroom is only about an inch less of which is found in a Mercedes-Benz S-Class sedan.

Stereo and Accessories

The Forester does also have ample features to amuse you along your drive with Infotainment system with Harman/Kardon sourced premium audio system enabled to smartphone integration. The simple but sober dashboard comprise navigation system and rear view camera. The new Harman/Kardon surround-sound system is both iPhone and Android-friendly making old gene compatible with technology. However, its enshrouded touch screen is same small, six-inch (diagonally measured) unit, which enforces users to deal with tablet-sized Chic lets, screen washouts in bright sunlight. In base models, climate and audio system resides in the center dashboard stack within convenient reach for driver and passenger.

 

Forester Exterior

The 2014 Subaru Forester sports a hexagonal grille with protruding center segment on its hood and subtle contours around its body. Though not to mention, it is obvious that the styling isn’t the mid-size crossover’s strongest point. Some minor tweaks like shark fin antenna, daytime running lights and light design make little discrimination, but the exterior remains very much familiar. One of the thing Subaru has never done with Forester is chase styling and design fashion trends. The fog lamp in front and rear and alloy wheels gives it prying look. Forester takes the modest look with the side skirts, door mirrors, bumper corners and plastic/metal engine guard protecting it from mud and rocky encounters augmenting it off-road credentials. Its gaudy cheese cutter grille makes the distinctive reminiscent of the Subaru legacy Outback. At the rear Subaru shows its humble nature with twin exhaust tail pipes giving the illusion of the powerful beast it is.

Exterior Measurements

The robust while being modest at the same time,Forester is carved in silhouette with the dimensions of 4597mm x 1803mm x 1702mm (L x W x H). The ride quality has been a part of further improvements with the longer 2640 mm wheelbase. Looking at its siblings, Forester has got the modest modification in its dimensions with the ground clearance been increased. The whole set-up is meticulously carved to get better aerodynamics with intact interior.

Wheels

Forester give a moderate performance with ride on 17-inch 225-section tires whereas force-fed engine gets a high-performance CVT and gets fancier 18-inch 255-section tires. All models have a symmetrical all-wheel drive system. All the variants of Subaru forester compact crossover come packing with 18-inch alloy wheels and 225/55 R18 tyres as standard giving it a hefty robust look.

Forester Engine & Fuel Consumption

In terms of performance Subaru has unraveled a series of technological advancement, improving Subaru symmetrical full-time All-Wheel Drive system, which constantly adjusts torque distribution to front and rear wheels.

Acceleration & Pickup
