Subaru UK is delighted that their first self-charging hybrid – the all-new Forester e-BOXER - has been awarded 4x4 Magazine’s Best Small SUV of the Year 2020.
Beating off strong competition, Forester impressed the judging panel at 4x4 Magazine across the board thanks to its wide range of safety technologies, on-road drivability and genuine off-road skills.
Since 1954, Subaru have been making cars with capability, safety and reliability at the forefront of their engineering, earning them a reputation for excellence. It is therefore testimony to Subaru’s on-going commitment to build cars that are incredibly safe, extremely capable and unfalteringly reliable.
Alan Kidd, Editor of 4x4 Magazine, said: "Subaru’s new Global Platform is the gift that keeps on giving. It means the all-new Forester has a roomier cabin than ever, as well as being almost unbelievably entertaining to drive – and one of the safest family vehicles in the world. That’s a hat-trick to be proud of!"
The safety credentials and suitability of Forester as a family wagon have also been confirmed by Euro NCAP, with the all-new model achieving Best in Class 2019 in the Small Off-Road/MPV class 1, along with the best score across all new cars tested by Euro NCAP in 2019.
Consisting of three SUVs, the core Subaru range includes all-new Forester e-BOXER, XV and Outback; embodying safety, capability and reliability at their core. There’s also Impreza, the nimble hatchback, and Levorg, the family all-wheel drive tourer.
Subaru UK Managing Director Chris Graham commented: "We’re delighted that the all-new Forester e-BOXER has won 4x4 Magazine’s Best Small SUV of the Year 2020. Subaru are committed to building the safest vehicles on the road, with all-new Forester outperforming all other vehicles assessed by Euro NCAP last year. These accolades are testimony to a great product and our vision to produce cars that truly are better where it matters."
