i think this new model makes the outgoing model even better value.

but not so good stuff is its agricultural 4 speed auto... the 2.0 is underpowered, the 2.5 turbo is better.

totally agreed that this model looks much beta then the out-going ones (no offense to anyone as just a general comment).
The soft-launch price for both models are quite attractive and some features are lacking in these two models as compare to the one that are advertised in the internet. Overall it looks like a SUV than a crossover, imho.

Seen and had a short test drive. No time to fully appreciate yet...
Was told the omv is abt23k.

Anyway, it's a great improvement over the old one.
Larger, longer wheelbase and wider.
It's abt the same size as the CRV.
It's a large sunroof, larger than the CRV 2.4. But back row floor is not totally flat. Sl hump.

The engine and interior is quiet and almost vibration free at idle. V refined. It's engine of the year anyway...heh...
But the drive...I like it! The turbo comes on pretty quietly, but can feel the car pulling away nicely.

just tt the interior trims not so nice, although well tot out and put together.

Some pretty nice small touches, like the hydraulic mounted bonnet. Isofix x2 for the rear seats. rear seat middle portion folds out to cup holders.

V viable option for those with a small family and still want a car which drives well, with power to match. I think I wouldn't even consider fuel consumption once u start driving it heh

Great value for the money

Purchased the Forester XT back in Sept 2015, the price hasn't fluctuated much since then. Unlike the luxury SUV's out there Subaru prices the Forester reasonably, in fact it's significantly less than a WRX too. Apart from the WRX being a 4d... » Read More
