Subaru’s new generation All-Wheel Drive Forester 2.5i has been named Best Sports Utility Vehicle (SUV) under $45,000 in the Australia’s Best Cars awards!
Cars were evaluated by the NRMA, RACV, RACQ, RAASA, RACWA, RACT and AANT against a broad range of criteria including: value for money, design and function, and on-the-road performance.
The addition was launched in early 2013 and features enhanced SUV traits such as safety, practicality and off-road ability. It also scored points for smoothness and quietness.
However, the win was won over by its’ very own 2.5- litre boxer petrol engine matched to a CVT transmission, which delivers an ADR combined average fuel consumption of 8.2 litres/100km.
On road, the Forester has always been a standout and its strengths lie in its car-like feel ride and handling. The Forester can also tackle off-road scenarios that would stop many in their tracks!
