For a while, many people have considered that the one thing missing from the line up of Subaru Forester for sale models is a diesel CVT variant. Fortunately, Subaru has recognised this need and have launched a vehicle to meet this demand. Many enthusiasts are excited to see if the new model can offer the same Subaru Forester XT performance but with diesel economy. So, here are five things you can expect from this new model.
Subaru has a great reputation for attractive pricing and the new Subaru Forester is no exception. The diesel model Subaru Forester for sale, will allow drivers access to a powerful diesel CVT combination from $35,490 plus on the road charges for lower spec models. Subaru has recently revamped their pricing structure, thanks to the Japan and Australia Free Trade Agreement and current currency exchange rates. This means that the diesel CVT Subaru Forester can compare very favourably with other popular models in the segment.
With the introduction of a diesel option to the line-up, experts were anticipating great performance stats comparable to the Subaru Forester XT. The high torque CVT has contributed to improved environmental and engine performance. Official figures for this diesel option are 108 kW of power and 350 Nm torque. This offers impressive fuel consumption of 6.4 litres per 100 kilometres. This powerful combo allows drivers to enjoy smooth and swift acceleration without worrying about it costing the earth.
The introduction of a CVT system allows for smoother driveability. The CVT system is matched well to the diesel Subaru boxer engine. This offers the only version of horizontally opposed diesel around the world. However, unlike many CVT variants which can have a buzzy feel, this diesel model is completely the opposite. The system feels refined and offers smooth driveability without intrusion from the transmission in the cabin.
Low Cabin Noise:
Unlike many diesel models which sound like you are driving a tank, the new Subaru Outback has the benefit of sound absorbing materials added to the engine to reduce any noise generation. There is also a new bonnet insulator to prevent noise escaping from the engine compartment. This creates an impressive end result as there is no harsh diesel rumblings and pedestrians would struggle to pick the model out as a diesel.
An Excellent Ride:
Despite the size of the Subaru Forester, the vehicle offers a great ride. The vehicle allows you to cruise comfortably on a variety of road conditions. The refinements to the suspension ensure that passengers don’t feel the bumps and jolts of even more challenging road surfaces. The All Wheel Drive system allows for confidence on slippery surfaces with a solid performance. There is a perfect balance of light and firmness to the steering, which means that maneuvering around town is no problem but allowing you to get some speed on even twisty roads.
