Subaru Forester 2.0XT 2017 Review: Snapshot


This is where the Forester gets a bit of a performance boost. While engine size drops back to 2.0-litres, power is way up to 177kW at 5600rpm and 350Nm between 2400 and 3600rpm. The torque figure is identical to the diesel's but fuel consumption is higher at a claimed 8.5L/100km. The turbo petrol also insists on 95 RON fuel.

\n

Starting at $41,240, the XT arrives on your drive with 18-inch alloy wheels, a six-speaker stereo, the same 7.0-inch Starlink screen with USB and Bluetooth (but loses sat nav), electric driver's seat, cloth trim, unpowered tailgate and full-size spare.

\n

The XT also drops EyeSight and Vision Assist, but maintains its five-star ANCAP rating with seven airbags, ABS, stability and traction controls, three top-tether anchor points and two ISOFIX points.
