On road capability: brisk acceleration (easy to overtake), enough power to exit fast the turning even if you enter relatively slowrnOff road capability: excellent for easy off-road, need all the skill of the driver for medium off-road which is the car limit

Why Not the 2009 Subaru Forester?

Powertrain performance

Small approach and departure angles Small torque in 1st gear at small speed

Fuel economy

Fuel consumption in 63000Km: -city: on the average(rush hours and non rush hours) around 15l/100Km -highway: around 9-10l/100Km at 130Km/h, 18-20l/100Km at 200-210 Km/h - other paved roads including mountain paved roads: around 11-12l/100Km - off-road: 14-16l/100Km


Cannot negociate a turning like in a sport car: soft suspension (compromise between on and off road capabilities)
