Overview

Subaru's (Motor Image Malaysia) answer to SUVs like the Mazda CX-5, Volkswagen Tiguan, Kia Sportage, Hyundai Tucson and Honda CR-V is the Subaru Forester.

The three locally-assembled, naturally aspirated Forester variants available at Subaru dealers are priced starting off at RM152,368 to RM168,268. The fully-imported turbocharged XT variant is available for RM211,729.20. 

The 2.0i, 2.0i-P, and 2.0i-S variants are powered by the naturally aspirated FB20 2.0-litre horizontally opposed four cylinder (boxer) engine. Power output is rated at 150 PS at 6,200rpm and 198 Nm of torque at 4,200rpm. The range topping XT on the other hand features a direct injected, turbocharged 2.0-litre boxer engine that outputs 241 PS and 350Nm of torque. Both engines are connected to the carmaker's Lineartronic CVT transmission. Drive is sent to all four corner's through Subaru's Symmetrical Active Torque Split AWD system. The ground clearance of 220 millimeters allows the Forester to clean many rough terrain and easily too, through the use of the X Mode feature.. 

Standard features include 7 airbags, DRL, automatic air conditioning, reverse camera, X Mode with Hill descent control, and 225/60R17 tyres and wheels. 

The 2.0i-P adds more niceties such as LED headlamps with swiveling function paired to a sportier-looking front bumper, automatic wipers, powered opening and closing tail gate, powered driver's and passenger's seat adjustment, leather upholstery, S.I. Drive mode controller, aluminum foot pedals, smart key and push start as well as a multi-function steering wheel with cruise control and paddle shifters. 

For those who prefer a sportier looking Forester, the 2.0i-S adds a sports-type grille up front, bodykit, gun metal coloured side mirrors, suede upholstery with red stitching, and carbon-fibre look trim pieces in the interior.

    Subaru Forester CKD – Local Boxing Hero

    Having spent the last couple of decades lying low, the Subaru brand is enjoying something of a renaissance in the Malaysian market. Local assembly of the popular XV crossover has brought volumes to almost mainstream levels, boosting the brand’s visibility in our shores tremendously.
