Subaru Forester SJ Facelift (2016-Present)

Two of the three variants of the Subaru Forester available are locally assembled – the 2.0i and 2.0i-P, both of which are naturally-aspirated. The third option is the 2.0 XT, which comes fully imported (CBU) from Japan, and is turbocharged.

The 2.0i and 2.0i-P is powered by a 2.0 litre NA four-cylinder DOHC petrol unit producing 150 PS at 6,200 rpm and 198 Nm at 4,200 rpm.

A handy feature here is PIN code access feature, allowing owners to access their Forester without a key fob.

Safety-wise, the Forester is well equipped across its entire line-up with seven airbags (dual front, sides and curtains, driver’s knee), Vehicle Dynamics Control (VDC), Hill Start Assist, ring-shaped reinforcement frame and ABS (with EBD and BA) as standard.

Each purchase comes with a five-year/100,000 km warranty and a three-year/60,000 km free service package.

Mohamad
2.0i (2016)
Bought new, Owned for 1 Year
Fuel Economy: 10.0 km/litre (10.0 L/100 km), RON95, Mileage: 1 km/month
    -Leather seats even on the lower models
    -Signal lights
    -Big windows and tall car makes you feel safer on the road
    -7 airbags best in its class
    -Very stable on corners and on highway
    -Tech accessories like eyesight is not available on the Malaysian version
    -Car is not as reliable as other Japanese brands. (My car had problems not covered by Warranty on the first week!)
    -After sales service is a joke (most of the staff are either incompetent or pretend not to be aware of your car problems) and is more expensive than most Japanese brands.
    -Car rattles and road noise is very loud.
To improve
-Better & cheaper after sales service -Make sure your cars are at least problem free in the first 1 year, but after 1 week? Come on subaru! -Bring on eyesight
