Take the Subaru Forester 2.0iS EyeSight to "Break" and Test the Super Hard Test Series
With the slalom test, the car overcomes obstacles extremely quickly and neatly. We used to test this car in Singapore with all rival models. In the conditions of gravel, wet, and slippery roads, the Subaru Forester is the most controlled, stable and safest car. The last slalom can be said to be an easy test. The chassis and electronic balance of Forester in particular and Subaru in general are not coincidentally said that this is a Japanese car and has the soul of a German car.
Referring to Subaru, it is impossible not to mention the 4 main technologies that they equip many of their models: SAWD full-time symmetrical 4-wheel drive system, boxer engine, Subaru global platform chassis and power package. Vision driver support technology, 4-wheel drive system is an indispensable feature on every Subaru.
Subaru's SAWD system always sends power to all four wheels, while competitors' four-wheel drive systems mostly work only part-time, true to the word symmetry. Subaru's SAWD system always distributes traction in a 4/4 ratio to the front and rear wheels, providing superior traction on all terrains.
Next we will test this new Subaru in the inner city. The favorite point of the car is the extremely open view from the front to the A-pillar, the A-pillar is extremely small, the rearview mirror is mounted far away, so there is a very comfortable observation space. Next is the camera, just press the button, the camera will display on the screen even if you go fast, this is a very convenient feature if you have to park your car in narrow alleys.
Another nice feature of the car is safety. When you step on the accelerator and there are a lot of people in front, the camera will observe, it will not let you jump, but actively reduce the torque, the engine down. If you still try to jump, even meet an obstacle, it will automatically stop. This is a Japanese car that is highly appreciated for its safety features.
One more feature, although not so important, still needs to be talked about. When you stop at a red light, if you are not paying attention and don't pay attention to the green light, the system will give us a headline telling us to continue.
CVT gearbox will bring a smooth feeling when traveling in the city, 156 horsepower is not much but still acceptable. This car has a steering wheel that can be said to be in the top of the best Asian cars. You can control the turn, the road surface through this steering wheel, very stable when cornering.
The armrest in the outer seat is sure, the water tank is made of soft rubber, less shock. This is a very small detail, but with this new Subaru Forester, it can be said to be the pinnacle of pragmatism. Quieter than all cars in the same segment while the price range is around 1 billion, this is the quietest car when cornering.
This is a car that runs extremely "flax", both bringing comfort to the second row and bringing joy to the driver. In the sitting position, we have many places to store things such as phones, wallets, books, etc., very practical. 2 A charger, enough to charge iphone, very cool air outlet. The car also has Auto Hold, AVH button here, when there is a red light you don't need to brake, it's like expensive cars currently sold in Vietnam.
Another thing that is also symmetrical on every Subaru is the famous 4-cylinder Boxer engine block. Compared to the inline 4-cylinder configuration, the Boxer engine produces less vibration because the movement of the two pairs of cylinders against each other cancels out most of the vibration generated. Due to less vibration, the Boxer engine is also lighter because it does not need the additional counterweights to suppress vibration like an inline cylinder engine.
Compared to the V engine, the Boxer has a much lower center of gravity, the engine is the heaviest component on any car, so placing it as low as possible will improve the vehicle's handling. The all-new Subaru Global Platform also improves both performance and passenger safety.
The new chassis has 50% better torsional stiffness than the old Forester chassis and can absorb up to 40% better impact forces. In terms of performance, a more rigid chassis will make the car better in cornering. And yet, Subaru Global Platform also has the ability to cancel vibrations 50% better than the old chassis system, providing smoothness for passengers on the vehicle.
When going on the road, the car does not have a great jump, it will still have a thrust. This is also just a natural version, not a turbo and the performance is just over 150 horsepower, so if you go on the road, you need to accelerate quickly, you are forced to trade the roar of the engine, the engine will go up to 5000 rpm. The noise level of this new car has been significantly improved.
The car also has a special feature of Adaptive cruise control, which automatically keeps a safe distance from other cars without having to step on the brake or accelerator. You can adjust the distance / near on the steering wheel. But this feature is not available on many modern European cars of 4-5 billion.
If you go fast and change lanes suddenly, you will find the stability of the chassis is very good. This can be said to be a car that is not too fast in terms of speed, but the agility is still there. Compared to in the segment, the agility and stability of this car is of concern. Even when you step on the gas pedal to 5000 rpm, this car with the Boxer engine does not create a vibration at all.
This is an advantage on a car equipped with a Boxer engine. With cruise control, fuel consumption is also very reasonable on this car.
The final technological solution that creates the signature Subaru experience is the vision technology package. The system includes 2 3D cameras working in parallel, they simultaneously collect images in front of the car and measure the distance of the car in front by comparing the parallax of the 2 images that the 2 cameras receive, because of the way This human eye-like activity that the system is named vision. Subaru is the only automaker to apply such a double camera model for faster reflexes and higher accuracy.
Six advanced features of vision include automatic braking when encountering obstacles (Pre-Collision Braking), adaptive cruise control (Adaptive cruise control), accelerator control (Pre - Collision Throttle management, lane departure warning). (Lane Departure Warning), Lane Sway Warning, Lead vehicle start alert - warn the driver when the vehicle ahead moves without the inattentive person starting.
The most significant feature of vision is the ability to support automatic braking when there is an obstacle, this feature works most effectively if the relative speed between the two vehicles is below 2km/h, between the vehicle and the pedestrian below 50km. /H. Above the above speed threshold, the system is still operating at full capacity to reduce the impact force.
In addition, the adaptive cruise control feature is also very useful with the ability to automatically stop at 0 km / h and continue to follow the vehicle in front.
Thus, with a series of improvements in equipment and performance compared to the old version, Subaru Forester has returned to the Vietnamese market with great attraction, the much lower price of the Forester version imported from Thailand has made The competitiveness of this model has increased significantly when compared to its compatriots with a full-time 4-wheel drive system, a Boxer engine, a new chassis and vision technology with a list price of 1,2 billion VND. . The 2019 Subaru Forester is one of the most valuable 5-seater crossovers available today.
