Stylish Forester ex­cels

NT News - Motoring - - CARS GUIDE - By GARRY SCHUT

I’M go­ing to start this week’s re­view faster than bour­bon down a bikie. How to pref­ace?

I shall start with a sim­ple ex­cla­ma­tion, a yelp of near as­ton­ish­ment — suck me dry and call me Dusty, just when you thought driv­ing ease and tech­nol­ogy couldn’t pos­si­bly be en­hanced any fur­ther, along comes this won­der­ful piece of ma­chin­ery, the Subaru Forester XT Pre­mium.

This brand has been do­ing good busi­ness in Aus­tralia for 40 years, well be­fore that Amer­i­can acro­nym made land­fall — SUV and it shows.

Not for noth­ing, it was col­lo­qui­ally known here Down Un­der as the Jap with zap.

Six hun­dred thou­sand ve­hi­cles plus have been im­ported to Aus­tralia dur­ing that time.

Upon ingress one finds the dash is a marvel of tech­nol­ogy and is so de­tailed it al­most drives one to dis­trac­tion.

Apolo­gies for re­sort­ing to cliche´ but yet again it has ev­ery­thing.

Here’s a quick pre´ cis of all
