Smooth and easy, the Suburu Forester drives really well. It handles nicely, the steering is not too heavy or light, and it cruises along the road without a lot of effort - there’s no heaviness that you can sometimes get with a solid car.
There’s a 2.5-litre engine, which is enough power to get up hills and surge forward when you need to move quickly. The Forester only comes in AWD, there’s no 2WD option, which gives it better traction on the road. It feels good to drive around suburbia and I’d feel totally confident taking it away on longer trips.
Even though it’s long it’s not difficult to park. There’s a high definition reverse parking camera which is useful, the front camera however is on a mini screen that sits high on the dash - it’s a bit harder to see. There is a handy side camera in that viewing screen as well, which shows you the kerb or whatever is next to your car.
