Dozer Drives the 2019 Subaru Forester 2.0i-ES CVT


On October 9, 2019

Maintenance Costs R 0.00 / Year

Insurance Premium Value R 0.00 / Month

Fuel Consumption 8 L/100km

We've been driving around confidently in the revamped Subaru Forester, what we feel is an underrated medium-sized SUV, that's actually fit for purpose. While it's not the first SUV you think of in general, those in the know are quietly buying it and are sitting pretty with what is a bulletproof, comfy and capable vehicle. Over the past few years, Subaru has become a leader on the safety and autonomy side of things as well.

It's been a few days of experiencing the Eyesight system on the highway and around town, but we're got the weekend ahead to find some playgrounds around the western cape and put the S-AWD (symetrical all-wheel drive) to the test.

We bid a fond farewell to this Japanese all-roader, after a week of urban commuting and the obligatory family Sunday afternoon drive. The Western Cape's well-maintain gravel roads were no challenge to the Subaru Forester 's suspension. What these roads presented was a chance to feel the S-AWD system working to keep the vehicle driving true and taking bends with "confidence" (#ConfidenceinMotion, get it? 🤷🏾‍♂️)

Under the bonnet is 115kW/196Nm from a 2.0 lt naturally-aspirated boxer-4. The boxer engine set-up helps to get a low centre of gravity, compared to V-engines or straight/vertical running pistons found in competitors.

It's got a CVT gearbox, which we found less "drony" than in the past, unless you use cruise control (then the computer makes the revs scream the instant you need more power to go up a hill).

It's so refreshing when you can match what a manufacturer claims on the rated fuel consumption of their vehicle. The previous morning, during cape town's notoriously heavy traffic, we did some errands between 7am - 9am. 65km of 30% highway, 70% suburban shortcuts to avoid traffic jams on the M5, N2 and N1 highways. We got 7.6lt/100km, Subaru's advertised claim. And we reckon we can do better if we try harder at this hypermiling thing. Great stuff!

A lot of people like this Forester, fellow motorists at the traffic lights always look at it, other Forest owners nod at you in recognition that you've made a sound purchase. We like it a lot as well. We'd love to see bigger rims and less use of hard plastics on the dashboard and door panels.
