By the end of this three-month test drive of the 2021 Subaru Forester Touring (priced from $36,508), I had covered 3,680 km and maintained an average fuel consumption of 8.4L/100 km.
Those paying attention will no doubt say to themselves: Not even 4,000 km in three months. That’s pretty little, and it wasn’t for lack of a desire to pile on more kilometres. The pandemic has simply made it harder to get around.
In any event, as for the fuel consumption of the Forester and its 182-hp 2.5L boxer engine, I find it quite satisfactory considering the size of the vehicle and its weight, which is pretty hefty partly due to its permanent all-wheel drive.
