About the Subaru Forester

From its modest beginning as a 4WD station wagon to the legitimate SUV of today, the Subaru Forester has progressively evolved to become one of the most affordable yet reliable vehicles for your road trips.

Whether you are planning an off-road trip to the foot of Mt. Longonot or just a relaxed road trip to Mombasa, this full-fledged SUV will bring comfort to the road. The Forester, which is a 5- seater Japanese SUV model, has been in production since 1996 and is available for sale in major cities like Nairobi, Mombasa, and Nakuru.

Despite the fact that its last major redesign was done in 2012, the Subaru Forester has continued to do well against competitors like the Honda CRV, Toyota RAV4, and Nissan X-Trail.

What are the main features of a Subaru Forester?

Most models of the Subaru Forester have a boxy shape and muscular exterior styling, with pronounced fenders and lower body cladding. Depending on its generation, this SUV may also feature LED headlights with daytime running lights, 18-inch alloy wheels, and dual exhaust outlets. On the inside, the Forester is practical and comfortable, and it has a driver-centric cockpit. More recent models may have interior features like automatic climate control, heated and power-adjustable front seats, a large touchscreen infotainment system, leather seating surfaces, and much more.

How spacious is the Subaru Forester?

The second generation (SG) Forester models offer just enough seating space for average adults, but the third-generation (SH) and fourth-generation (SJ) models are even roomier in both rows.

Also, after spending a few days in the village for the holidays, you would probably want to return with some bananas or sweet potatoes. Subaru Forester has enough space you need to carry your ndizi back to the city. Most Forester models offer over 900 liters (32 cubic feet) of cargo space behind their rear seats. They also feature flat-folding rear seats, so their cargo space can be significantly increased when necessary.

Is the Subaru Forester fuel efficient?

When driving in the city, the fourth-generation (SJ) Forester models with a naturally aspirated 2.0L four-cylinder engine may return a fuel economy of approximately 11 kilometers per liter. On the highway, fuel economy in such models may improve to 14 or 15 kilometers per litre (when driving moderately); aggressive driving will lower fuel economy.

The more powerful turbocharged Forester SJ models, on the other hand, may return a fuel economy of 8-9 kilometers per litre in the city and 10-11 kilometers per litre on the highway. Both versions feature a continuous variable transmission.

The prior generations of the Forester also feature different 2.0L engine versions that may pair with a 4-speed manual, a 6-speed manual, or a 4-speed automatic transmission. Depending on whether they are naturally aspirated or turbocharged, they may also deliver similar fuel economy ratings.

What is the ground clearance of a Subaru Forester?

Save for a few standard roads in Nairobi and other towns in Kenya, other parts of the country still have stretches of rough roads that can sometimes make movement a nightmare. Most Forester SUVs have ground clearance of over 8 inches, so you can easily navigate any of them over bumpy roads and rugged paths

Can i find spare parts of a used Subaru Forester in Kenya?

Subaru Forester has been on Kenyan roads for more than a decade, and they have become increasingly popular over the last few years. Therefore, it is relatively easy to find spare parts for used cars.

Also, apart from the many spare parts shops in major towns in Kenya, there are lots of reliable online marketplaces where you can put orders for specific spare parts for your Forester.

Is the Subaru Forester a reliable car? Does it have good resale value in Kenya?

Many of the Foresters on our roads are SF (first-generation) and SG (second-generation) models. That says a lot about the reliability and durability of the Forester. You can count on it to keep running for many years. According to Consumer Reports, an American non-profit organization that prioritizes the interests of consumers, the latest models of the Subaru Forester get a reliability rating of over 85 out of 100. Subaru Kenya states that a predicted reliability of between 81 and 90 is considered excellent.

After using the SUV for a while, you will still resell it at a fair price because of its popularity.

Should I buy the Turbo or Non-Turbo Subaru Forester?

The advantage you get with the Forester models that have a turbocharged engine is enhanced performance. Such models can launch from stops with exhilarating urgency, and are likely to outpace most cars on the road. However, they are pricier, and they consume more fuel, as shown above. However, many Forester owners can attest to the fact that naturally aspirated (non-turbo) Forester models are also not slow. They may not be as fast as the turbo models, but they are fast enough to keep up with (and even beat) many other similar SUVs on our roads.

Therefore, it comes down to what you are looking for. Both turbo and non-turbo models are reliable. he Subaru Forester is a decent compact SUV that checks most of the boxes in terms of the things that Kenyans look for in compact SUVs, i.e., comfort, status, performance, off-road

About the Subaru Forester

Array

For several years, the Subaru Forester has been one of the most popular compact crossovers within the Kenyan market. Popular with younger and middle-aged demographics, it is reputed for speed and durability while providing sufficient space for a small family and accoutrements. The Subaru Forester is relatively new as a model considering it was introduced in 1997. As with most Subaru models, the Forester also comes standard with all-wheel drive. Model options for the Forester include the Forester, premium, touring, sport, and Limited.

History of the Subaru Forester

First-generation Forester (1997- 2002) SF series

The concept of the Subaru Forester was initially introduced at the Tokyo Auto Show in 1995, but it was first produced in 1997. From there, it was introduced into the American market in the same year. It was more of a high riding wagon at first, like the Honda CR-V, but an exciting alternative to mainstream rivals. It only had two model classifications, which were the base L and S trims. Based on the Impreza platform, the engine was available in four versions. These included the 2.0 liter EJ20 DOHC H4, 2.0 liter EJ20 Turbo, 2.5 liter EJ25D, and the 2.5 liter EJ251 SOHC. With a top speed reaching 180 kph, the first generation Forester could reach 100 kph within 11.4 seconds. The fuel system was multi-injection, and the gearbox options were a 5-speed manual or a 4-speed automatic. The standard model options for the Subaru Forester included air conditioning, power windows, cruise control, and ABS. Minor exterior modifications were made to the first generation Forester, but the significant facelift came in 2002 with the next generation.

Second generation forester (2002 -2006) SG Series

The second-generation Forester was based on the new Impreza platform. The facelift featured an updated, boxy body with larger dimensions, including a bigger grille, contoured bumpers, and halogen headlights. The base model of the Forester was renamed X, while the luxury model became the XS. Both of these had a 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine. In 2004, Subaru unveiled a new XT model with a turbocharged engine releasing 210 horsepower with the same 2.5-liter engine offering. Also, for the first time, Subaru released an STI version of the Forester for the Japanese market. It had the same 2.5 Liter four-cylinder engine as the 2005 WRX STI churning out a maximum horsepower of 285. The transmission options are similar to the first generation considering the option of a 4-speed automatic or 5-speed manual. The generation launched a couple of variants of the models during the later years, such as the XS premium and the XS L.L Bean edition with leather seating. The second generation brought an element of practicality considering the increased room and versatility, which was expressed in various customer reviews. In 2006, the Forester got another facelift with a curvier structure accentuated by less aggressive and longer sloping headlights. The front bumper was made to be curvier along with the roofline while the rear retained the basic features.

Third generation forester 2009 – 2013 SH series

The third-generation Forester came with a significant redesign to embrace the crossover classification of the model. It featured a less racy and boxy exterior, with a sloping roofline and softly rounded curves. This facelift marked its transition, so it looked more like a small modern SUV rather than a sports wagon. The redesign entailed an increase of the wheelbase and length by 3 inches, while the height increased by 1.8 inches. The model options provided by the third generation were the X, X premium, Limited, XT, and XT Limited. The Forester maintained the 2.0 and 2.5-liter four-cylinder power trains for the standard models churning out 170 horsepower. It also has a 2.0 L turbo-diesel and 2.5 L 263 horsepower H4 turbo for the S Edition. It was the first time though; a 6-speed automatic manual transmission was provided for the 2.0 liter turbo diesel option. 5-speed manual and automatic options were the mainstays, while the 4-speed automatic transmission prevailed for another generation. A sport shift mode, though, was added to the four-speed. The third generation had an independent wishbone suspension as well for better handling and a smooth ride. Increasing the dimensions for the third generation allowed for a roomier interior and better cargo space. When the rear seats were folded down, it allowed for 69 cubic feet of room. A mini refresh was done for the 2013 models allowing for USB and Bluetooth audio to be input standard features in all models. Stability control, brake assist, and curtain airbags were the main safety features during this era.

Fourth-generation 2014 to 2018 SJ series

The SJ era received another facelift. The length was slightly increased by 1.4 inches and width by 0.6 inches. The headlights were also narrowed at the sides following the design language of other SUVs. The updates to the interior allowed for the cargo area to increase to 74.7 cubic feet when the seats were folded. Legroom and headroom were also increased for the generation. Adjustments were also made to the dashboard, meaning a better design with large buttons and knobs for the sake of climate controls and stereo function. The standard model has a 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine with an output of 170 horsepower. Other engine options include the 2.0 L FA20F turbo and 2.5 L FB25 H4. They are mated to a six-speed or lineatronic CVT transmission for the base models. The X-Mode AWD control systems, which are new for Subaru, are designed to be used on slippery terrain, and they are available on some of the high-end models. The new safety attributes introduced for this generation include the EyeSight Driver Assist Technology that was made to monitor the traffic movement on the road and warn drivers if they deviated from lanes. Other safety features include forward collision prevention systems and reverse automatic braking.

Fifth-generation 2019 to present SK series

Subaru introduced the fifth iteration of the Forester at the New York International Auto Show. Though the exterior of the 2019 model was a bit different compared to that of the previous models, the focus of the brand seemed to move towards comfort. The 2019 base model Forester utilizes the FB engine, which has a new block and head featuring dual overhead cams with intake and exhaust variable valve timing. Engine options for the latest version of the Forester include the 2.0 L FB20 H4, 2.5 L FB25 DI H4, and there is a hybrid option; 2.0 L FB20D e-Boxer. The engine options are all linked to a lineatronic CVT transmission. The premium model features an advanced X –Mode that makes the most out of engine output and the transmission ratio. A sport trim joined the Forester lineup and has 18-inch wheels with X mode control and hill descent controls. All the base trims also have a panoramic moon-roof that stretches from above the front seating to the rear seats. The safety packages from the fourth generation, including EyeSight Driver Assist and forward collision warning and braking, prevail in the fifth generation as well.

Fourth vs. Fifth Generation Subaru Forester

Platform comparison

The underlying structure of the fifth generation forester would be the new platform known as the Subaru Global Platform. It shares the same with the Crosstrek and Impreza sedan. The advantage is a solid feel, better ride comfort, and stability compared to the fourth generation. The new platform allows the wheelbase to expand by 1.2 inches meaning slightly more leg, head, and shoulder room. It also allows the Forester to have wider rear door openings, which are advantageous for entering and exiting the vehicle.
The fourth-generation utilizes a revised sport-oriented suspension and chassis braking while the new generation has a redesigned offering with greater use of high strength steel. The steering response has also been improved quite a bit as with the new braking hardware that gives better-stopping power. The added benefit that comes with the new model is the new parking brake frees up the console space through the elimination of the traditional e-brake handle.

Better engine

The fifth-generation models are all powered by the new iteration of the 2.5-liter boxer four-cylinder FB engine with direct fuel injection and auto-stop. It generates 182 horsepower compared with the previous 2.5-liter engine, which produced 170 horsepower. The engine options for the fourth generation are also not available in the fifth generation Forester. The engines are mated to a CVT lineatronic transmission solely, so the six-speed manual transmission offering is not provided with the fifth generation forester. Both models do allow for the Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive that monitors the deceleration, cornering, and traction. The fuel economy on the fourth-generation Forester was an improvement of 32 miles to the gallon or 13.6 kilometers to the liter. The fifth-generation Forester’s new engine provides a fuel economy of 14 kilometers to the liter.

Roominess and function

There have been significant gains in the headroom, hip, and shoulder room within the rear seating to improve the passenger comfort and cause a feeling of spaciousness within the cabin. Subaru also made it much easier to install a child seating facility for young families. The fifth-generation also comes with a steeper C pillar angle in the doors that make it easier to egress and ingress. When it comes to function, the new Subaru Global Platform increases the cargo space significantly. The load floor sits at a flatter position, and the squared-off shape has been optimized for ease when it comes to carrying large objects.

Exterior and Interior Styling

There is not much of a difference when it comes to the exterior styling of both the fourth and fifth Forester generations. The fourth-generation does have a curvier outlook making it look bulky and imposing, though the sharper edges on the fifth iteration bring back the sportiness the Forester is known for. Sloping rooflines make for a larger body appearance from the side, and the broader dimensions make the fifth-generation model seem like a bigger crossover model. A larger wheelbase than the fourth generation also adds to the overall aesthetics considering the wheels are more pronounced. Apart from the improved room, the tech packages remain the same for both of the models. These include a voice-controlled 8-inch touchscreen infotainment system and a customer intuitive dashboard setup. The Touring models on the fifth generation, though, add heated rear seats.

Safety Packages

Both the fourth and fifth generations have similar airbag setups and software packages. The EyeSight driver assist technology was first introduced with the fourth generation, so it was in the initial phase, but it comes standard in the fifth generation. The other packages include adaptive cruise control, lane departure warning, and emergency braking. There is also lead vehicle start alert, which notifies distracted drivers if the vehicle in front starts to move forward after coming to a stop. It is especially handy in heavy traffic.
