A special edition of the Subaru Forester is apparently stirring keen interest among Australian car buyers.
The special edition Subaru Forester tS arrives in dealerships in coming weeks and Subaru Australia tell us the sporty model has generated huge interest with scores of customers making deposit.
Featuring enhancements such as Brembo brakes and sports-tuned suspension, Subaru Australia boss Nick Senior says the Forester tS is proving to be a special edition model that’s in demand.
“Arguably it is the only true sports SUV under $80,000. And with its rarity and Subaru’s renowned retained value, it is bound to be one of the first collectible SUVs.”
“When we flagged Forester tS late last year, the customer enquiries went through the roof and the end result is we’re already wishing we’d ordered more than 300.
“It’s clear proof of the success of this clever joint development between the Subaru factory and the performance arm, Subaru Tecnica International (STI).
“While the cars were built in the Subaru factory, they were transferred to STI for final completion and the addition of around 30 items.
“It certainly gives us great confidence in progressing other joint projects between the factory and STI.”
The Subaru Forester tS comes with $12,000 of extra features for just a $7,000 price increase over the Forester XT Premium with prices starting at $54,990.
