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.

Pang
2.0i-P (2016)
Bought new, Owned for 1 Year
Fuel Economy: 9.6 km/litre (10.4 L/100 km), RON95, Mileage: 3,150 km/month
    -Great handling for the price range, far surpass CR-V from my test drive experience.
    -One of the very few manufacturer that use Boxer engine for mass market.
    -Great all time AWD system, a peace of mind when you want go dirt road to avoid traffic :v
    -Fuel consumption is comparable to my 3 years old Iriz, for a C-Segment SUV
    -Better NVH refinement than most rival
    -Best visibility in class, minimal blindspot compare to ALL rival.
    -Smoothest CVT in class
    -Spacious for passenger, plenty of leg room and head room.
    Lack some features that my Iriz had, despite 2x of the price:
    -Lack auto-fold mirror
    -Lack Auto-lock + auto unlock (for accident)

    Boots space is smaller than rivals.
To improve
Add on the auto fold side mirror. Add on the auto lock & unlock features. Better performance tuning for the engine and transmission.
Yes, I would recommend this car
