The Subaru Forester - engines and powertrain

The Subaru Forester's propulsion is handled by the e-Boxer for the first time. The new mild hybrid system combines the classic benefits of boxer design with the advantages of electric assistance. This increases driving pleasure and reduces fuel consumption and CO2 emissions. The 2.0-liter boxer gasoline engine with 110 kW/150 hp is supported by a 12.3 kW/16.7 hp electric motor and a 13.5 kW lithium-ion battery. This combination guarantees ample torque in the lower engine speed range and thus a powerful start. Like the brand's typical permanent all-wheel drive system, which is coupled to the continuously variable Lineartronic automatic transmission, the components of the electrified powertrain are also arranged symmetrically. This placement ensures an even lower center of gravity, better weight distribution between the front and rear axles and, as a result, the best possible driving stability.
