All-new 2019 Subaru Forester Review video in Malaysia. 

TC Subaru launched the all-new 2019 Subaru Forester in August and now we finally got the chance to get behind the wheel of one.

We took the new SUV off-roading around the dirt track at Most Fun Gym, tackle the twisty bits of Karak highway and cruise along the endless straights of LPT2, all in one day!

2019 Subaru Forester 2.0L Review

The new Subaru Global Platform (SGP), symmetrical all-wheel drive and EyeSight Advanced Driving Assistance System (ADAS) came together to make the journey a breeze.

2019 Subaru Forester Engine Performance

Although the new FB20D 2.0-litre naturally aspirated four-cylinder boxer engine only makes a modest output of 156 PS and 196 Nm of torque, the updated engine works very well with the new CVT automatic (now with 7 virtual ratios) and the Subaru Forester doesn't feel underpowered.

Compared to the crowd favourite, the Honda CR-V, the fully imported Subaru Forester offers great value for money. As tested, the range-topping Subaru Forester 2.0i-S EyeSight is priced at RM 159,788 (on the road without insurance) which places it RM 4,000 cheaper than the equivalent Honda CR-V 1.5 TC-P.

After watching this 2019 Subaru Forester review video, will you choose the 2019 Subaru Forester?
