Specifications Subaru Forester in 2016

Since 2016, three variations of the Subaru Forester vehicle have been released, namely:

  • Subaru Forester 2.0;
  • Subaru Forester 2.0Т;
  • Subaru Forester 2.5.

The dimensions of this car are 4610x1795x1735 mm. Cars that are officially sold in the CIS countries have a clearance of 215 mm.

Most of the changes in the engines were aimed at reducing fuel consumption. In particular, the engines received new timing chains characterized by reduced friction, variable valve timing, lightweight pistons and connecting rods, a variable-capacity generator and an oil pump. The changes also affected the combustion chambers of the fuel intake and exhaust systems. The result was a significant reduction in the fuel consumption of the Subaru Forester, due to more efficient use.

As on previous models, the Subaru Forester is still equipped with all-wheel drive. The innovation of 2016 is an intelligent torque distribution system, which, in combination with an upgraded suspension system, allows you to confidently go through turns even at high speed.

The advantages and disadvantages of the Subaru Forester

The obvious advantage of this car is that it very harmoniously combines the features of an SUV and station wagon. Judge for yourself - a spacious and comfortable lounge, equipped with the most modern security systems, combined with excellent maneuverability.

The main disadvantage of this car is the rather complicated process of replacing the spark plugs, since for this the unit must be removed from the supports. In order to delay the replacement period, the manufacturer installs platinum candles as standard, but they require extremely high-quality fuel.
