In 2014, the famous magazine MotorTrend voted Subaru Forester as the best SUV model of the year, leaving behind many other rivals such as Mitsubishi Outlander, Kia Sorento, Hyundai SantaFe … Forester is a 5-seater family SUV brings diversity when being able to move in many complex terrains like in Vietnam
Subaru Forester was first introduced in Vietnam in late 2012 and belongs to the fourth generation of the Forester family, which was born in 1997. Entering 2019, Subaru Forester will be officially distributed in the market. Vietnam market with 3 different versions with the selling price respectively:
Forester 2.0i-L: VND 1,128 billion
Forester 2.0i-S: VND 1,218 billion
Forester 2.0i-S Eyesight: VND 1,288 billion
This price makes Forester 2019 really compete directly with popular crossovers such as CR-V, CX-5 compared to before at a level close to luxury models such as BMW X3 or Mercedes-Benz GLC-Class. .
Compared to the previous generation, which had a plump and neutral design, the new generation in general or the 2019 version in particular has a much stronger and more masculine design. It can be said that the current Forester can satisfy the eyes of young customers as well as middle-aged customers.
The 2019 Subaru Forester has an overall dimensions of Length x Width x Height of 4,595 x 1,795 x 1,735 mm (2.0XT version) and 4,625 x 1,815 x 1,730 mm (2.0iL version) along with the wheelbase reached 2,670 mm. For ease of visualization, compared to Honda CR-V, the wheelbase of Forester 2019 is 20 mm longer.
Taking off the moody mask of the previous generation, Forester 2019 looks younger and more powerful than ever when viewed from the front. The main lighting system uses LED bulbs instead of multi-angle reflectors and filament bulbs of the previous version.
In the center, the heat grid is stylized into a neat and well-proportioned polygon of size compared to surrounding details. The large chrome border embraces the blue logo that bears the symbol of the constellation Pleiade, quite special.
Underneath, the Subaru Forester 2019 makes a strong impression with a large cavity with dark details, making it feel like a large cavity to catch the air mass ahead. The Japanese automaker also hit the front bumper with two fake air vents, carved with a trapezoid, weaving and hugging the compact, chrome-plated and nicely shaped chassis.
Subaru also equips this light bulb with the function of rotating in the direction of the steering of the volant, which is quite convenient and worthwhile. In addition, the most noticeable point on this light is the sharp “C” DLR LED strip of light, covering most of the edge of the reflector. It can be said that the “eyes” of Forester 2019 really glitter and attract the eyes of the opposite person.
Along the hull, it is easy to identify the strong and strong Forester with embossed lines along the body length. The wheel cavities are also made impressive. And yet, the most intriguing detail is the powerful multi-spoke cast aluminum alloy wheels up to 18-inches in diameter that come with 225/55 Bridgestone Dueler tires. Indeed, this combination gives Forester a healthy and impressive appearance.
The overall rear is quite sturdy. The veins and floating plates appear more to help the car looks very pitiful. The rear light cluster is an effective combination of straight lines, creating a compact and beautiful overall. Despite its relatively modest size, the taillights cluster, when combined with the overall, bring absolute symmetry.
Set of 2 stop lights are mixed between white and red with a fancy “U” design. This detail is equipped with Subaru system of neat LED bulbs. In addition, other positions including turn signals and reverse lights are still used by Subaru traditional filament bulbs.
Above, the auxiliary stop lights are neatly and uniformly arranged with angled spoiler. The back door has the ability to open and close the power in 3 ways: press the button in the driving drill, use the smart key and open directly.
Spacious and neat are the two adjectives that can be used to describe Forester’s interior correctly. High quality leather and plastic appear around the body. The details are quite well designed and feel quite good. The volume used is maximized, helping people to sit comfortably and comfortably.
The front row of seats is my first favorite point when entering the interior of Forester 2019. The array of seats is arranged to fit and support the whole body very well. The driver’s front seat is equipped with an 8-way power button. Particularly version 2.0i-S also optionally add memory function of the driver’s seat position. However, the front passenger seat is still only equipped with mechanical adjustment function, similar for the rest of the second row.
Behind, the passengers will be extremely excited when traveling for a long time. The backrest is shaped quite flat, but still has a slight curve in the middle, and a large tilt angle helps people sit very comfortably. Once the front seats have been adjusted for comfort and enough legroom, the rear seats still have ample room to stretch their legs freely without worry of being entangled.
In general, the interior space of Forester 2019 is very wide and comfortable thanks to taking advantage of and maximizing the internal volume with a wheelbase of 2,670 mm. Minimalist design and sporty look, the tabloid panel feels as familiar as a sports car thanks to an extra neat screen in the middle and a traditional analog clock cluster. Along with that, leather and plastic materials are used in many places with complete and high-class finishing.
The air holes are square and simple, but they fit the overall design. The outer edge of this detail is lined with an eye-catching silver decoration strip. Close to the central secondary screen, the emergency use button and navigation key are also neatly located, quite convenient to the driver’s reach. These two details are well finished, the button seems to be made of high quality plastic and has a solid click feel.
In the middle, a completely touch screen with a flat design like a black decorative mirror looks quite luxurious and high-end. Lower, the three silver metallic circles that play the role of controlling the air-conditioning system look quite nice and the diamond sides are very sharp and beautiful, creating a bright highlight on a black background of the details around.
In addition, the function of push button start and smart key is standard technology on all new Subaru cars. The buttons are arranged quite neatly and reasonably, which is convenient for manipulating as well as limiting the wrong pressing when the car is in operation.
The most popular detail on the Subaru models is probably the Japanese three-spoke sports volant. The overall design of the steering wheel is neat, the stitches are carefully and meticulously sewn. The leather wrapped steering wheel feels very fit and smooth, making it comfortable when traveling long distances. Underneath, a silver-gray “U”-shaped tangent plate has a square shape that gives the steering wheel a tough look.
The left-hand side is where the control keys for the hands-free conversational system are located, while the lower side is the control of the information displayed on the central clock. Opposite, Subaru used to install other functions such as Cruise Control, 2 keys to adjust the engine operating mode.
Although the Forester 2019 uses a continuously variable automatic transmission, Subaru retains two gear shifts behind the volant. This makes it possible for sports enthusiasts to feel a bit familiar and excited about using this powerful SUV.
