The trend of buying cars from Vietnamese customers in recent years has been relatively clear, which is the choice of 5-seat or 5 + 2-seat Crossover cars. Therefore, more and more car manufacturers have paid more attention to this segment. Outstanding in the market are names like Honda CR-V, Mazda CX-5, Hyundai Tucson or Mitsubishi Outlander and recently the powerful comeback of the Subaru Forester. Let’s review Subaru Forester 2021 with us!
The Subaru Forester currently sold in Vietnam market is the 5th generation model of this product line. Although it is a new generation product, the appearance of the pregnant Subaru Forester makes a complete transformation like the other competitors.
Instead, this new generation model of Subaru mainly completes what was in the 4th generation and focuses on the change hidden under the outer cover. It is Subaru’s global chassis platform.
Thanks to a change in the chassis system, the new generation Subaru Forester has 70% better torsional rigidity, better tones and 50% lower full body vibration compared to what customers experience. old generation.
Honestly, looking at the front end from the styling of the chrome polygonal grille to the Projector LED headlights, the 5th generation Subaru Forester looks like a mid-cycle upgrade of 4th generation is more than a new generation.
The difference here mainly comes from the revised front bumper and the use of a lumpy black plastic material that creates a feeling of pit for the car. In particular, with the GT Edition package, the Subaru Forester’s front bumper will be covered with a silver-plated wind deflector to help the car become more sporty and personality.
On either side of the body, the large, five-spoke, 18-inch, five-spoke wheels with GT logo and side panels are undoubtedly the biggest highlights of the Subaru Forester GT Edition. In addition, this version is also raised to the 360 camera to help the driver more convenient to control and observe around the car.
Behind the scenes, the new Subaru Forester looks sturdy and square, typical of a traditional SUV. LED taillights with the crab-shaped design are more or less impressive to the viewer and create a similarity to the design of the front lights.
Like the front and body, the rear of the Subaru Forester GT Edition also gives the viewer a dynamic and sporty car with a new style rear bumper with silver-plated aerodynamics and wings. black paint tail wind silhouette high above.
Personally, the writer said that the exhaust of the Subaru Forester is only a single form, making the overall design of the rear end not reach complete perfection. If Subaru’s engineers put the exhaust hidden below or create the symmetrical fake exhaust on the sides, the appearance of this car would be much better.
Inside the new Subaru Forester is a cockpit with a simple, no-frills deck design and there’s something that makes many people easily think of the old Forester’s cabin style. The only difference is that construction materials like leather, plastic and chrome trim details give a more premium and quality feel than before.
In addition, the Subaru Forester is also considered by car experts to be a rare car in the mid-sized crossover segment, equipped with up to 3 displays of infotainment and operation. However, the presence of 3 screens is somewhat confusing to users when using.
The 3-spoke fully functional steering wheel of the new generation Subaru Forester is covered with leather and creates a harmonious design between sporty and modern elements. The meter cluster on this car is also designed simply, not flashy, but very easy to observe operating information.

The driver’s visibility to the front and sides is nothing to blame thanks to the small A-pillar design, large rear-view mirrors placed on the doors, and the window sizes in all positions are very large. This helps the driver, especially the “young”, always have the best view of everything around when operating.
The rear seats can not be adjusted forward, but regardless of whether the front-row occupants push the seats back much, passengers in this position still get ample legroom and headroom. with people as tall as 1.8m. The back seat back has armrests and allows reclining 60:40 to increase luggage carrying capacity.
A plus point in the new generation Subaru Forester is the luggage compartment capacity.

It has a storage capacity of up to 818 liters and when the rear seats are folded down, this figure reaches 2008 liters.
