2018 Subaru Forester SUV 2.0XT Premium 4dr SUV AWD (2.0L 4cyl Turbo CVT)


Review

The Turbo makes the car. Its just a plain beast. The visibility of the car is superior. It is extremely quiet. The sunroof is huge. The fit and finish is excellent. Really no equal to Subaru's Symmetrical AWD. Handling is excellent. With conservative driving it yields 30+ mph on the highway and 26 in suburban driving. The infotainment system needs Carplay. V oice commands are not top notch. Just can't say enough about the vehicle. I love the CVT

If it were not for the transmission, this would be a solid 5 stars.

Review

I originally wanted a manual, which was not available in my area, so I got the CVT automatic. The transmission downshifts when encountering the slightest uphill grade and, like most inexpensive automatics, revs too mush before shifting in some circumstances. The "CVT" is not actually a continuously variable transmission, since it shifts to pre-set ratios, rather than true continuously variable ratios.
