Subaru Forester 2.0D-L 2017 review: snapshot

The second model in the Forester range is the 2.0-litre turbodiesel L.

The second model in the Forester range is the 2.0-litre turbodiesel L, following up at slightly more stout $33,470. The diesel knocks out 108kW and 350Nm, with a combined fuel figure of 5.9L/100km. You can choose a six-speed manual or continuously variable transmission (CVT) to deliver drive to all four wheels.

Rolling on 17-inch alloys wheels, the D-L also comes with a six-speaker stereo powered by Subaru's Starlink 7.0-inch touchscreen with Bluetooth and USB connectivity. You'll be sitting on cloth seats, kept comfortable with dual-zone climate control, the headlights and wipers can turn themselves on and off and you'll be carrying a full-size spare.

The five-star ANCAP safety rating comes courtesy of seven airbags, ABS, stability and traction controls and three top-tether baby seat anchors and two ISOFIX points.
