Forester named UK junior crossover of the year

Thu, 22/12/2011


The Subaru Forester has been named ‘Junior Crossover of the Year’ by specialist British off-roading magazine, Total 4x4.

Forester faced competition from the likes of Toyota Urban Cruiser, Suzuki SX4 and Skoda Octavia Scout.  However, thanks to its sure-footed Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive configuration, car-like driving dynamics and exceptional practicality, judges singled-out the Japanese crossover for the highest praise.

The panel of experts at Total 4x4 magazine said of the Forester: “Typically of Subaru, the Forester does very good things without making a fuss of it. The combination it offers of quality, value, practical usability and driving talent makes it very hard indeed to beat.

“The Forester has always been a star in its own corner of the market, and heavily revised petrol and diesel engines means it now shines brighter than ever.”



Every Subaru sold in Australia features Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive and a horizontally-opposed Boxer engine, standard Vehicle Dynamics Control electronic stability program, and a five-star rating for occupant safety from the independent Australasian New Car Assessment Program (ANCAP). The result - driving confidence.
