Rock down to Elec­tric Subaru

Wheels (Australia) - - Head To Head -

It’s a shame that the 2.0-litre flat­four, man­ual gear­box and tur­bos in both petrol and diesel guises have been dropped for this fifth-gen­er­a­tion, Sk-se­ries Forester. How­ever, the Ja­panese firm is plan­ning to in­tro­duce sev­eral petrol-elec­tric hy­brid vari­ants over the next two years, to help broaden the Forester’s per­for­mance po­ten­tial as well as im­prove its econ­omy. Hands up who’d also love to see a ba­sic, util­i­tar­ian man­ual ver­sion as per the orig­i­nal se­ries? Just me, then? Righto.
