Subaru Forester E-BOXER in Carlisle
With the Subaru Forester e-BOXER you can go further in any weather for less. It’s powered by a reliable self-charging hybrid powertrain, which combines a 2.0 petrol engine up front with a battery over the rear axle. These combine to deliver a smooth and responsive drive, with power sent to all four wheels through a snappy Lineartronic CVT transmission. It’s hugely capable, with Permanent Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive and X-MODE with Hill Descent Control. The Forester e-BOXER is also equipped to make your journeys easier with keyless entry and start, Side View Monitor, an 8” touchscreen with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, EyeSight Driver Assist technology and much more.
The Forester is tough and functional. It’s clearly built for tougher stuff, with a jacked-up suspension, chunky wheel arches and roof bars. It’s refreshingly functional but also styled to fit in anywhere with a handsome front end and LED headlights.
The Forester drives like any normal car, which is a huge complement when you take into account its great off-road performance. The hybrid powertrain is self-charging and operates seamlessly, returning combined consumption of 34.7mpg (WLTP).
The enormous 520-litre boot is big enough for two large suitcases, your monthly grocery shop, or a dog or two (a luggage divider is available optionally as an accessory). The Forester is also a strong tower, capable of towing a braked trailer up to 1,870kg.
Living with it
The Forester is a pleasure to live with. The 8” touchscreen is easy to use and comes with in-built sat nav on XE Premium models. Heated seats are a standard feature, with XE Premium models adding heated rear seats and a powered tailgate.
