When you think of the South African plain, things like lions, elephants, and leopards pop up in to your head. As for what vehicle you'd ride along in to see all these animals in their natural habitat, things like a Land Rover Defender, Toyota FJ80, or even a Suzuki Samurai would suffice. Or how about a 2014 Subaru Forester 2.0XT? That's just what Arthur St. Antoine picked when he was given the chance to explore the South African plain, and what happens next is anyone's guess.
In the latest installment of Epic Drives, St. Antoine wheels a 2014 Subaru Forester 2.0XT in search of an up close encounter with rare white rhinoceros. Along the way, St. Antoine is forced to put the Forester's off-road prowess to the test. Without giving anything away, let's just say the trails St. Antoine and his Forester take are better suited for purpose-built off-roading vehicles like the ones mentioned above. Does the white rhino show itself for St. Antoine? Can the Forester make it through the South African terrain? We're not telling here, so check out the latest episode of Motor Trend's Epic Drives, and be sure to catch a new episode on Motor Trend's YouTube channel airing every fourth Friday.
