Subaru Forester (2019): At A Glance

Fifth-generation Subaru Forester is offered only as an e-Boxer hybrid, combining a 2.0-litre petrol engine with an electric motor.

With 220mm of ground clearance and four-wheel drive as standard, it's more capable off road than many rivals. On the road, it's soft setup means it soaks up bumps well, and it's sharper to drive than its predecessor.

While the cabin isn't as premium as alternatives like the Volkswagen Tiguan, it's very practical and feels well-made.
